Why hire me to teach your child to write?
I am a certified teacher grades pre-k to 6th grade for all subjects.  I am also certified in ESL and Special Education from pre k-12th grade.  I have many years of experience teaching in a traditional public-school setting, homeschool setting (k-12th), private tutoring, and teaching online.  Teaching reading and writing is what I was made to do.  I enjoy spending time with children, and very much enjoy helping them find their talents to read and write.  We have a lot of fun doing so!  I allow children to explore their own creativity while writing, and this has proven to be extremely effective in creating amazing writers.  I would be honored to explore the techniques of writing with your child.

Please contact me with any questions you may have.
 I would love to learn more about your child, and help you register for the correct level.  Part 2 of this class will be held during the traditional spring semester of school.
Homework will be assigned each week based on how much of the lesson's assignment was completed.  Students may have homework from time to time in preparation for the next class.  This will all be communicated in the platform classroom area.
Crayons, markers, pencils, pens Rubber stamps, stickers Assorted paper: grade-level lined and unlined, construction paper (9"x12", 12"x18", and scraps), scrapbook paper, novelty paper Manila file folders Glue, glue stick, tape Scissors, stapler, hole punch, yarn scraps Composition book: primary (These have a top blank half for drawing and the bottom half is lined for writing. These materials would be best to organize in a Writing Center Tub or bag for easy access during every class. Access to a printer to print worksheets, diagrams, and other tools the teacher will provide.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will have a two-page writing skills evaluation check list for each student.  I will track the mastery of each skill, and communicate with parents if a child needs extra time with a specific skill.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
