As a writing teacher, I find it best to work with students on a completed draft they bring to me. I ask a lot of questions to make the experience enjoyable for students, but also attend to lots of concerns of grammar and style. I have a PhD in literature as well as in composition.
I've been teaching in colleges for over 30 years, but also in high schools. I've tutored in several college writing centers and directed one of them. I wrote books for a children's book company, worked for a newspaper, and also worked extensively with job and college application materials. I've also taught both fiction and poetry writing.
