Engaging and Encouraging K-12 ELA Tutor

I have tutored several students in writing -- K-6, all needing help with all facets of writing, mostly generating ideas, starting writing, and brainstorming. I've also worked with these students to develop their ideas, including examples, using details and showing not telling, and finally, with the syntax, grammar, and overall writing style.

Also, having taught and tutored high school English and being an English major I have much experience with writ [more]
