Evocative English Speech and Writing

Writing skill is a life-long pursuit. There is no upper limit to skill and fluency. Along the way, I believe progress is achieved by creating a supportive and interesting partnership between tutor and student. Helping students stay connected with the purpose and structure of their composition allows them the satisfaction of knowing that they're making solid progress and developing ever more skill in editing and sculpting their compositions. Depending on the learner's skill level, examples and templates can accelerate insight and progress. [more]
