I have been an English teacher in public, private, parochial, and charter schools for the last 12 years and have been teaching altogether for 23 years in the New Orleans and Metro Atlanta area. I have been English department chair and have guided countless students to master the skill of writing cogent five-paragraph essays. I am a Teacher Consultant with the Greater New Orleans Writing Project and also received training through the Phillips Exeter Academy. Developing a safe space in which my students feel comfortable sharing their writing is important; I strive to create a sense of rapport and trust with my students. Through my 20-plus years of teaching experience, I have taken pride in my role as a writing coach. Developing warm relationships with my students is important, and I get great joy when former students visit or message me to brag about how well they are doing because of the writing skills they mastered in my classes.
If we're working on essay writing, students may need to put in some extra time after class, but no more than 20-40 minutes between sessions, and only occasionally.
This will be determined in consultation with the student and parents. I share Google Drive documents and slides for classwork. These can be opened by the student and edited.
Student progress will be evaluated as we work together from week to week.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This will be determined in consultation with the student and parents.
This class is in high demand!
