Description

Class Experience

I have scored essays for standardized tests for 2 and a half years. This has included scoring for college entrance exams like the ACT and the SAT. More recently, I have been teaching essay classes through Outschool. I have read so many essays. So so many essays. Literally thousands of essays.

So I have a pretty good understanding of how to achieve the highest score point on a standardized test essay. Ultimately, I understand the components to fantastic writing and I want to share my knowledge with your clever kids.

I enjoy teaching with energy and a sense of humor. I currently teach ESL to Chinese students. Before that, I spent some time as a snowboarding instructor at Park City Mountain Resort. I get a kick out of teaching and I love my students. I work my tail off to help them achieve their goal, whether it is writing an essay, speaking English, or snowboarding.

I studied English at Brigham Young University and received my Bachelors of Arts in April 2011. While studying, I spent a semester in Europe, surveying art at The British Museum, The Louvre, The Musee D'Orsay and many other world renowned museums. I love the humanities, especially the English language!

So enroll with me for a magical writing adventure. Writing is a life skill. My goal is to help your learner feel like a more confident writer.
There is one essay assignment at the start of class and another essay assignment at the end of class. There's also some recommended reading. It's expected that there will be about 50 minutes to an hour of homework each week.
 1 file available upon enrollment
Students will be provided with sample writing prompts and essays. Students are not required to purchase materials, though I recommend that students read "Eats, Shoots, and Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation" by Lynne Truss.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
