Experienced teacher supports student success in skill building

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.

It is my conviction that anyone can lear [more]
