I work primarily via Skype. I use Google Drive to store and organize texts and assignments, and I use Google Docs to comment on students’ writing without taking over. I can meet in person for students in New York City, and I can work on other platforms like Microsoft Office Online or Google Hangouts.
Sessions consist of a combination of
- writing-to-learn activities
- collaborative note-taking
- formal writing.
Sessions for middle-school students usually last one hour, two or three times per week. Sessions for high school students usually last two hours, twice a week. Texts, goals, and focus of our sessions are determined in consultation with student and parent(s) / guardian(s).
