Weekly English Language Arts Club (Age 9-13)
This weekly ongoing class provides a rich diet of reading material, discussion, and writing activities to boost the whole range of English skills.

I will provide clear explanations of key background knowledge, vocabulary, themes and structural features of the text we read. There will be plenty of interactive discussion.

I have more than thirteen years of experience as an English language arts teacher, teaching grades six to twelve, all the way to advanced college preparation level. I also have three university degrees in English from top British universities.
One piece of writing is assigned each week. It is discussed and planned in class, and guidance is provided in the course textbook. Students may submit their writing to me using an Outschool message, and I will provide detailed feedback.
The textbook is provided to students to print out if they wish. It will also be displayed on screen.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class is in high demand!
