How does an "Ongoing" course work?

Meets on a weekly schedule, join any week, no need to catch up on previous material
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Automatic payment every Sunday, cancel any time
Great for clubs and for practicing skills

Class Experience

Students will better understand how to complete a different element of a research essay each week. 
I have a Bachelor of Arts in English, and held a Professional Teaching Certificate in Florida to teach English in grades 6-12.  I have taught essay writing to middle and high school students in public, private, and homeschool settings. 
Students will need paper and something to write with. PDFs will be provided some weeks in the classroom. When PDF's are needed, they will be posted at least 24 hours before class, and sent directly to new students enrolled after that window closes.
During class, students will be informally assessed through class discussion and activity to ensure student understanding and so I, as the teacher, can adapt the class to student's needs.  
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
