Writing is my passion and as well as majoring in English at university, along with Theatre Arts, I've almost 20 years of experience in teaching English in primary schools. Over those years, I have worked regularly with groups of children specifically on English writing skills and also SPaG lessons daily in term time for several years; as well as teaching English online. I have also tutored students in SPaG skills on a 1:1 basis over the last 3 years, to improve general skills and for tests and exams. 
I have edited both creative and formal work over many years on a voluntary basis and have recently joined the writing/ editing group for an educational platform.
A notebook or paper and something to write with, or a device to use for writing. 
A small whiteboard may be handy but by no means necessary.
All content is age-appropriate. 
A variety of online and published works have been referred to over years of studying and teaching this subject, including but not limited to:
'English for Everyone' - DK books
'Woe Is I'  Patricia T. O'Conner
'Oxford Modern English Grammar' Bas Aarts
