Class Experience

I have an MFA in Creative Writing, for which I took courses in teaching English Composition. I have five years of experience teaching writing to elementary and middle schoolers in afterschool settings, as well as one-on-one tutoring for reading and writing.
No office homework, but some students may need extra time outside of class to finish their essay on time. Students will have some time to write their essays during each class, and there will be two dedicated work days just for researching and writing. Kids are busy, and many of my students attend a public or private school in addition to taking Outschool classes. For this reason, I incorporate supervised work time into each class. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No assessment. If your child requires an official assessment, please message me on Outschool before the class begins and I can send you an letter grade and/or written report privately.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
