Class Experience

After having taught essays to more than 500 students on Outschool, I have realized that many of them fear the thesis statement! But the truth is, it's a fairly simple endeavor... if you have the right tools. 

Besides essays, I also teach grammar, literature, poetry, and vocabulary, and I've been teaching on Outschool for more than three years. 

Underpinning this passion for teaching is a strong writing background. For years I worked as a professional journalist for newspapers, magazines, and various freelance and online publications. I also hold dual degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in journalism and French literature. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
