Paragraphs are then built into the standard five paragraph essay from which longer writing is built. Writing is based on reading selections, videos and general fund of knowledge enhanced by research. Creative work is also done to balance formulaic writing with more free indivi [more]

Italian and Spanish teacher

A native Bostonian, I have been teaching language skills to students since 1997. I have taught students on the college level (Emmanuel College, Wheaton College, and St. John Seminary College) as well as on the high/middle high school level (Millis High/Middle School). Spanish and Italian I have been teaching Spanish and Italian on the college level for nearly 15 years.

Harvard 2X Test Expert: Top Scores on LSAT, SAT, ACT, GMAT, and GRE

In high school, my English teacher predicted that I would flunk out of college because I was such a poor writer. Well, I felt encouraged to improve. And I did. I graduated near the top of my class, with much praise for my undergraduate thesis that was selected to be placed in the Harvard archives. In the process, I became aware that the way most people teach writing makes it harder -- not easier. In recent years, I've helped people who didn't think they could write to create works that are viewed as outstanding by everyone who reads them. Whether the problem is finding a topic, getting orga [more]
