Your ability to write well is the key element in getting through high school, getting into college, and finding a great job. Learning these skills early in life will impact grades resulting in more choices as your academic life continues which leads to the ultimate career. Our writing reveals so much about ourselves to our readers. I have tutored students of all ages particularly middle school through high school. I use a technique called "Step Up To Writing" which breaks down essay writing sentence by sentence and paragraph by paragraph building a cohesive essay which is well organized as well as provocative. I am a credentialed single subject English Teacher.
