Helping students get their writing assignments done on time is one of my specialties. First, I show students how a few minutes of brainstorming when they first get an assignment is a low-stress way to get their ideas on paper, get their brain to start working on the assignment, and overcome the blank page. Then, I teach students how to get started and budget their time so that they have time for revisions, the key to good writing. I help each student develop their own check list of grammar and style points, built on their writing weaknesses, teacher feedback, and the assignment requirements.
How do I know how to do this? Well, I was an A student in every writing class I ever took in elementary school through AP English and college level Shakespeare etc. I have a master's in journalism from Harvard, and I've been writing for a living for 20 years. I've also taken several courses on creative writing that focus on ways to beat writer's block and get your best ideas on paper.
