I have been teaching English and writing to students from middle to graduate school for over 20 years. I've helped students write essays, research papers, SAT essays, college application essays, and even edited PhD dissertations. One of my greatest joys is to break down the (seemingly) daunting task of grammar usage and writing into small, manageable, and easy-to-understand steps. Everyone can write, and it's my job to show them how!
Each week, a short, one-page activity will be assigned to practice what we've learned that week. Once turned in, the teacher will grade it and give feedback.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students are assessed through collaborative classroom activities, short homework assignments, and teacher feedback.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
