Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will work on the format of different types of writing, spelling, grammar, and content.
I love working with kids! I have 13 years of teaching experience, and I have taught in both traditional school settings and as a homeschool parent. I am passionate about helping kids at all levels of their reading and writing journey. It's so exciting when I see a student gain confidence as a reader/writer or when I can help a young aspiring writer achieve their dreams.

My writing experience includes writing copy for marketing materials, ghost writing for corporate executives, technical writing, writing newspaper articles, and writing instructions for digital technology applications. Managing a corporate internal newsletter was one of my favorite projects. I created the newsletter design, interviewed and wrote articles about team members, and managed the editing and submission process for all the contributors. As a hobby, I love to write short stories, poetry, and songs. I can't imagine my life without writing.

My education includes a BA in Communications and a Master of Science in Technical and Professional Communication (MSTPC). Because I have completed 2 years of my BA and all of my MS classes online, I am skilled with the various aspects of online learning. I love using what I have learned to help kids become better at reading and writing.
Each week student will have a different type of writing homework. The length will vary. But, students should be able to complete their assignment independently. Of course, parent review is always appreciated!
Worksheets and notes will be posted weekly as needed.
Each week, students will turn in their writing assignment and receive written feedback on their grammar, spelling, format, content, and use of that particular type of writing.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
