I've taught essays -- along with creative writing, poetry, and a ton of other classes! -- on Outschool for three years now. I absolutely love teaching, and I love taking a multi-faceted writing project like an essay and breaking it down into small, manageable pieces for students. My professional background includes writing for numerous newspapers and magazines, as well as degrees in French and journalism from UNC-Chapel Hill.
Class 1: Students will write three body paragraphs. Class 2: Students will write the introduction and conclusion.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents, be aware that some students might choose topics that run contrary to what your student believes. Barring anything overtly racist, sexist, or otherwise inappropriate, I will allow students to choose their own topics.
