I have taught English Language Arts and ESL at the middle and high school levels for nearly 13 years. I hold a BA in English Language and Literature and an MA in ESL with a focus on theoretical and applied linguistics.  Prior to my full-time work with students online I served as an instructional coach, reading interventionist, Friday School principal, and Secondary English Specialist for a large school district. I hold an active teaching license as well as a K-12 principal license. My focus areas of expertise are English Language Arts (reading, writing, speaking), American and Historical Literature, Philosophy, Common Core standards, ESL, Social and Emotional Learning,  Project-Based Learning and Evidence-Based Instruction.  
Homework is individualized and most commonly takes the form of short reading passages, research, outlining and revision, critique, structural analysis and rewriting for precision and economy of language
