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.
Homework OfferedThe learner will spend up to an hour or so after our sessions to complete the assigned writing.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedI will offer feedback to the learner during each session. Additionally, learners will evaluate their own writing through the use of checklists and rubrics.
I will share links to Google Drive documents, with learners granted permission to edit the documents. This way, we can both type on the document, and I can insert comments for the learner to refer to.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
