About the lesson

As a non-traditional student who returned to college at the age of 36 and graduated Summa cum Laude and went on to take a Master's degree, I appreciate the value of a good education more than most. High school and college level writing is often the most challenging of tasks facing students, so I teach these from the point of view of clear communication. We start with simple assignments and build grade A papers through multiple drafts and careful construction - thesis paragraph, context, support and evidence, conclusion.
By breaking each of these components down to their simplest form, composition writing (for literature or non-fiction or any topic) becomes easier, as the student realizes that errors are the way to learn and mistakes are the best path to great grades.
In the end, the student learns that he or she can writing clearly and persuasively about any topic. Writing becomes a powerful tool in their quest for success in school.

About Robert

After many years in the work force, I returned to Worcester State College and obtained my BA in English, then went on to take my Master's at the University of Connecticut. I then taught high school English for eight years at Wachusett High School and taught as an adjunct at Worcester State and at UConn.
In high school, I taught hundreds of students all levels of English and literature, from Grade 9 through Grade 12. My focus on composition, with its emphasis on multiple drafts and gradual improvement through learning from one's mistakes, resulted in high scores for my students in standardized tests focusing on writing.
In addition, my students studied everything from poetry, non-fiction, creative writing to the classics and modern works. Our work together prepared them well for their academic careers ahead.
