Maria Jacob
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(1)
This writing course is designed for 1-on-1 private tutoring. Students will receive customized tutoring that addresses foundational standards in writing and follow the Common Core standards.

Class experience

US Grade 6 - 8
Beginner - Intermediate Level
Students will choose from a set of writing prompts. We will begin by organizing thoughts for the writing piece. Then, we will begin to write the response to the prompt.

Focus Areas:
1) Write with clarity using proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation. 
2) Organize ideas through a writing organizer.
3) Write to address the audience and respond to the writing prompt appropriately.
4) Apply and improve on critical thinking skills.
5) Apply and improve on analytical reasoning. 
I have been tutoring students ages 5 through 14 for five years full-time. I also run a STEM Days program for students ages 3 through 13. One of my focus areas is literacy standards that help students write well in a fun and engaging manner. Another focus area is numeracy and helping students apply mathematical concepts to real-world situations, like science! I have experience working with students needing special attention, including but not limited to English Language Learners and students diagnosed with ADHD and autism. 

I have worked as a tutor inside middle school classrooms providing one-on-one and small group support. 

I have also facilitated a youth leadership training class for a group of middle school youth leaders.

Students should have a pencil and paper available for use during class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Dear Parents and Guardians, 

The best way to prepare for this class is to help young people create a learning environment that is free of distractions. The learning space should include a desk and chair, and students should have a pencil and paper available for use during class. A notebook is best. It is recommended that young people remain disengaged from cell phones during tutoring sessions.

We may use online platforms like nearpod. If so, a subscription to the software platform is not needed. Instead, a link will be shared so that your child can submit their response electronically. Nearpod is used to increase engagement in a fun manner. 

 I look forward to working with your young person(s)!
