As a tutor, I spend most of my time reading and editing essays (often times from college students!) I realized there is a real, ongoing need for this type of class.

While earning my Master's degree in Creative Writing, I was anxious about my own 30 page extended critical essay. Luckily I had a wonderful teacher who gave me invaluable advice. I was able to turn a stressful situation into an enjoyable experience. I hope to carry on that legacy and pay it forward with the next generation.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
