Help Reluctant Writers Find Their Voice, Build Confidence & Develop Skills. Flex
Do you have a reluctant writer? We will break down writing while learning skills to move from oral storytelling to writing independently with confidence and without the fear of "getting it wrong."
US Grade 5 - 8

My goal is to build confidence in young learners so they can write with ease and confidence.
Homework OfferedIn my classes , I use multiple diagrams to help students visualize how to find topics, find subsequent ideas for building paragraphs and I utilize canva to show learners how to find reliable sources. The homework will be specific to each class and should take no longer than ten to fifteen minutes. If a student is struggling with ideas or completion, I will work with them happily. Students will engage with not only me, but other students who have enrolled as well. We will discuss all aspects of the course as well as share our homework assignments to gain different perspectives. Students and parents can email me at any time if they have questions. I will be adding in several fun games to help the students choose topics and build upon their papers. It is a great way to encourage those students who find it hard to pin down a topic of interest.
