Whether it's wanting to improve an aspect of creative writing or organising non-fiction report writing; help with sentence structuring or planning a piece of persuasive writing; help with descriptions that bring your ideas to life or focusing on how to look at your work and edit it effectively, or simply wanting to tighten up grammatical areas (such as punctuation, verbs, nouns, tenses, plurals and singular, etc) help is at hand. This is very much YOUR lesson and once you let me know what...
Students will improve their understanding and application of various aspects of writing. Particular aspects will depend upon student requirements but may include: sentence structure planning a creative or non-fiction piece of writing expanding vocabulary with descriptive terms foundations of grammar (clauses, articles, tenses etc), writing dialogue direct and reported speech persuasive writing building an argument inference elements of preparation for SATS English (UK students) verbs and so on.
Writing is my passion and as well as majoring in English at university, I've almost 20 years experience in teaching English in primary schools (4-11-year-olds) and also as a Home Educator. Over those years I have regularly worked with groups of children specifically on English writing skills. I have worked on a 1:1 basis with students of varying stages and abilities over many years and also tutor online.
Formal homework will not be assigned. I may suggest an exercise to help consolidate learning and help the student move forward but this will not be compulsory.
A notebook and something to write with or device to work on. Printable work may be uploaded in advance for the class depending on the subject to be covered.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessment will take place by continuous feedback during class. Depending on the class subject matter, I may suggest uploading a piece to the class page afterwards, for which I will provide written feedback. Grades will not be given as the focus is on improving understanding and building confidence rather than setting out to achieve a grade-driven goal.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
No sensitive material to be used.
Class content will be created by me for each learner.
Building confidence and a love of learning with a student centred approach and fun along the way.
