National Merit Scholar with 6 years experience teaches literature, writing, and test prep in Irving and online

I believe that literature and writing are first and foremost supposed to be fun! Even with less exciting subjects like grammar and test prep, I still try to bring a down to earth attitude and a sense of humor. I'm particularly familiar with homeschooling and classical education, but I'm adaptable and will adjust to the needs of your student.

There is no one method. It depends on the age and maturity of the students. It also depends on their skill level and motivation. While it is sometimes helpful to make it as fun and engaging as possible, that would be inappropriate at other times, such as when teaching essay writing.

English teacher extraordinaire with 27 years of academic experience including: online language teaching, English-Junior high, Honors English 9, 10, 11,12, AP English Language, British Lit, French Lit

It depends on the situation. If a student is a beginner or is struggling, of course I would scaffold and make sure the student has all of information necessary not only to move forward, but to move upward! The more advanced a student is the faster we can move and the deeper we can to into a subject, but if there is one thing i have - a HUGE abundance of it's PATIENCE.

English Tutor with more than 15 years of experience teaching elementary through high school and beyond.

As an instructional designer, I am proficient at tailoring learning to the learning style and level of the student. I believe that reading and vocabulary are key to good writing. Incrementally more difficult reading material is essential at every level in order to recognize good writing, to develop a large vocabulary, and learn strong writing skills.
