English Composition


 with Bonnie Wolfe

short description:
Help for students with difficulty doing all or any aspect of college-level writing.
long description:
This help would include, depending on the students' needs, grammar, sentence structure, paragraph structure, essay organization, punctuation, thesis writing, different types of essays, different forms of library research and
documentation formats, learning to research and document correctly to avoid plagiarism.
I believe I would find it best to write three programs, dividing the needs into (1) basic grammar, sentence structure, paragraphing, punctuation. (2) Writing essays, thesis writing,organization, basically how to write different types of essays. (3) Library Research and
level of difficulty:
all welcome
minimum class size:
Most times between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. EST, seven days a week. With the exception of Saturday,which would be between 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. EST only. I would, of course, not take on too many students per week or day, but my time is flexible enough to give a good choice range.
fee comments:
This would be an hourly rate. Suggestions here would be gratefully accepted, as I'm not use to setting my own price.

description of :
I was a nurse for 25 years, then went back to school so I could teach. I've been teaching basic writing courses now for 10 years. I teach on the Saint Leo University campus and on line for them, as well.
I love teaching! It is wonderful to see a student's face light up when he or she "gets it." On line they write me to say they were sure they couldn't do this course, but they did, and they are so pleased with themselves. This is wonderful!
I have infinite patience and understanding. I mainly teach adults on line and on weekends at present, but have taught the young ones on campus as well. Young or not, the on-line students are more motivated.

's preferred teaching style:
I have a plan for that session, of course, and use the whiteboard, PowerPoint programs, etc., and tell the students to ask questions at anytime they have them. I don't mind being interrupted, and they will forget the question if they must wait until the end of the lecture. I ask them questions as well, and ask if there are questions to encourage those shy ones to speak up. If there is more than one student, I plan interactive projects to get them aquainted and help them feel less alone due to the on line format.
I would want no more than five students at one time, and one on one is best. (I've taught on-line classes with 20 or more at once, and it is confusing to us all.) I tell them to be sure and rewrite the question, if they have no microphone, if I have appeared to have missed it, and that I would never knowingly ignore anyone. If there is more than one student, I would have them each introduce themselves and tell us as much or as little as they wish. Adult students have so much to share, that just conversing and discussing is important and helpful to all (including me).
