THIS IS A SMALL GROUP VERSION OF ALL ABOUT ESSAYS TAUGHT BY JONATHAN. There will be NO MORE than 10 students in this class. If you prefer your student to receive a little bit more individual attention – this is the class to choose! Eva’s All About Essays’s class typically has between 20 -25 students.

It is imperative that students, with the goal of attending college, can write basic essays with ease, speed, and confidence. In this class, your child will become well-versed in the structure and application of expository, persuasive, compare/contrast, research, and personal essays, which are found on most applications and scholarship forms for college, competitive summer programs and high school admission. Students will explore and implement many stylistic techniques within the structures of their essays that will assist them later in finding their voice within their own written words. They will learn how to use composition checklists to ensure that they have done a solid job editing their work. This class is high paced with the emphasis on EDITING – TRULY EDITING using their COMPOSITION CHECKLIST. 

The goal is for the student to understand that writing takes TIME and cannot be done in one or two sittings. It is expected that the students work a minimum of 45 minutes per day on their assignment; a minimum 7 – 8 hours over the course of two weeks to produce a well written paper.

While working on homework, students are expected to repeat the writing process with some degree of independence. NEW (first year) students might need parental assistance, but, over time, ultimately, we are striving for them to establish independence as writers.

In addition, after multiple years studying/using IEW methodology, it is often during the second year of this class that a student will begin “finding their voice” and given freedom to use stylistic techniques as they feel needed.

Students are expected to be present in class, with class notes in front of them, participating actively and asking questions when they arise.   

Students are expected to USE their CLASS NOTES (provided by instructor) while writing.

Students are expected to USE their ASSIGNMENT PLANNERS while writing.

Students are expected to USE their COMPOSITION CHECKLIST while editing.

All About Essays is an interactive, fast paced class.

If the student participates in class and does their homework to the best of their ability using the tools provided, it is expected that by the end of the year in All About Essays, students should feel comfortable writing a 5-paragraph essay.  Often, students repeat this class twice. The second year ensures that students can write 5-paragraph essays comfortably, so that they are prepared for college level writing.

High School Students can take .5 (1/2) credit of English.

NOTE: Registration deadline is August 15, 2022.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.

There are no reviews yet. Be the first one to write one.
