Students enrolled in the individualized writing course work with a writing consultant, every day, Monday through Friday, on papers and projects of their choosing. I provide 100% individualized, hand-tailored instruction to meet each student’s precise needs as a writer.
All aspects of the writing process are covered, including generating ideas, pre-writing, outlining, research, taking notes, drafting, controlling tone, sentence and paragraph structure, literary and stylistic devices, grammar, punctuation, mechanics, editing, proofreading, and the process of revision.
The course offers complete flexibility, allowing parents and students to select — and even design — the assignments. I believe that the direction of a writing course should be determined by you. I am happy to take the lead, but my preference is to honor your decisions and input.
The instruction is asynchronous, meaning there aren’t any scheduled meeting times. Instead, a student can email me when ready to submit work or ask a question, and I will always reply within 24 business hours. I provide approximately 30 to 45 minutes of work per day.
Because the course is truly individualized, there can be no predetermined syllabus. Rather, you work with me to decide on a project. After the first project is complete, I will be glad to recommend a new project or will work on any project provided or decided upon by you.
Enrollment is ongoing throughout the calendar year, so you can schedule a course to begin on any day you wish, as long as it’s not a weekend or holiday. You can enroll for any number of months you wish, but the smallest block of time I can offer is a one month session.
