I have been teaching English/language arts for 2 years. I have experience working with all age groups, from elementary school to college, and I have worked with a variety of skill levels, from remedial to gifted learners. I have a master's degree in English, and I write a monthly column in a regional magazine.

Paper and pen or pencil are required each day. A notebook would work well, so learners can keep their sentences together in one place. The content in the class builds each day, so having their previous work will help them move on to the next step each day.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
