In this 8-week course, we will quest together to achieve fourth grade level ELA (English Language Arts) skills corresponding to national standards. Knowing that each student comes from a unique background -- that includes schooling history (and recent policy changes), regional standards, personality, online engagement, individual talents, (among other things) -- I will especially strive to connect with each learner in a personal way.

As the newly published author of the "Emotebook" and a freelance writer for over 20 years, I have relied on language arts skills as the building blocks of a happy career. For three of those years, I also worked full-time as an associate editor, which helped me gain real-world expertise in the nuances of English language arts. I am walking the language arts journey with my three children while homeschooling them, as well as with several other students in various grades. I am also bridging the gap between cultures by teaching English as a second language to hundreds of students online. I look forward to this language arts quest with you!
