Class Experience

***This class comes with one evaluation due before the next essay. This outside evaluation is included in the overall price of the class. Real learning happens when the student revises ave improves his or her work after evaluation!***

Course Objectives:

•  Learn different types of essays and write them effectively according to the "rules" of the essay. 
•  Learn to focus their essay on the main idea and write a specific essay that answers the thesis question.
•  Learn and practice writing clear, and focused, hooks, topic sentences, body paragraphs, and concluding sentences.
•  Learn to write clear, focused, and cohesive paragraphs and essays with topic sentences.
I'm a published author (fiction and nonfiction,) writing teacher, and tutor who's worked with gifted and struggling kids for over 20 years. I saw a gap and a need when it came to writing because children didn't have a basic knowledge of sentence structure or paragraph writing. I developed a program with fun techniques to engage them to write powerful and sometimes silly sentences. The techniques seemed to work with kids who loved writing as well as those who didn't. I'm excited to bring my program online to an even bigger audience. 

What parents are saying:

Gina is a phenomenal writing teacher! We have loved working with her. We have a range of ages and she is great at adapting to their ages and learning styles. She's very patient and good at helping them focus. My kids have learned so much and been stretched and challenged in the area of writing. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to advance in any area of writing! - Bethany, mom of 4

About Me

I love seeing students get excited about writing, even reluctant writers. Ever since I was 8  years old, I've been journaling and writing poetry to express things I couldn't speak out loud or didn't know how to. My thoughts just came out better...
