  • Mastering the basic writing process allows students to become strong, confident writers and readers. Outschoolers will benefit the most from this class if they have a limited understanding of writing rules. Students who have a basic knowledge of grammar. Spelling and sentence structure errors will occur, and that is to be expected as your student masters the writing process.
My educational goal is to enable your student to become engaged in grammar with active reading, hands-on activities, and inspiring projects By tapping into your Outschooler's natural enthusiasm for learning, they are active and engaged in their educational process. I have taught over 4,000+ Outschool students, and logged more than 900+ Outschool teaching hours, in engaging, instructional, and inspiring English Language courses. I am a certified and licensed K-8th grade instructor. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts in English, Communications, and Print Media.
