As a writing teacher, I focus on organization that helps us stay on the right track with whatever we write. The use of the essay format can help us with short pieces, or research papers. Part of my thrust is to help people discover the exact word to use to describe a person, event or situation so that we can write effectively. I aim to use the 5 W's to encourage students to explore the questions we need to answer any topic's main points. I have helped students with literature, social studies and current events. In those areas, I have worked on items like, symbolism, theme development, contrast essays and the critical lens approach.
