Homework Offered
Students will have a small after-class assignment. While some students will inevitably want to sink their teeth into the assignment and spend the evening drawing and dreaming of dragons, the assignments can realistically be finished in a half hour or so, should your learner be particularly time-strapped!
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
Below are my general classroom rules and policies. These will also be explained to students when we begin class!
-For everyone's safety, and to ensure an engaging and social experience, students are required to have working microphones and video for the entirety of this class, positioned such that we can both hear and see them.
-Students are asked not to use filters or virtual backgrounds-- though if there is an important reason to use a virtual background, please just let me know ahead of time that your student will be using one (no questions asked!).
-Students will be asked to introduce themselves by sharing their name, pronoun, and a favorite book. If your learner doesn't want to offer a pronoun, that's okay! There's no pressure, and we'll just move right along and try to avoid pronouns entirely with the learner.
