I am a graduate of the University of California, Davis, where I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication, with a triple minor in English, History and Writing. I currently hold a valid California state teaching credential in Single Subject English with a Social Studies supplementary credential. My passions have always involved three broad topics: English, history and communication. While I was a student at UC Davis, my studies focused primarily on grammar and writing, early modern European history, and the art of rhetoric. I have extensive experience teaching middle school and high school courses, including honors, regular and remedial English, Speech and Debate, Study Skills, AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), History, and Drama.
Optional homework to practice and assess the correct usage of adjectives.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
