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.

Now together we'll draw that story out and introduce it to the publishing world. I?ll show you how to assemble a proper manuscript, where the markets are waiting, and we?ll focus on wh [more]
