Today was the first day of transitioning to all online classes. We have our first two documented cases of coronavirus here locally. I already teach several online classes for distance students. For my local families’ peace of mind and to support public health initiatives at this time, I have temporarily converted all local classes to online meetings as well. Hopefully we can get back to in-house meetings soon, but in the meanwhile I am so thankful to be able to hold classes using the outstanding Zoom meeting app!
One of my very special long-term writing moms posted this picture of her girls from today’s class. <3 Everything went very smoothly for this first Zoom class! I think we can finish the year strongly.

I wanted to know if your writing classes online are Free to anyone? Are they basic writing classes like introduction to writing or more advanced?
Hi, Sonja! Thanks for writing! I would love to talk to you about my classes! My online classes are paid classes that meet from September through April and are exactly like the classes I conduct in my home for local students; the only difference is that we meet together on Zoom instead of my classroom. Because of the virus, I had to transition all local classes to Zoom for the last couple of months. The Zoom app is free to install and use, but I charge tuition for the classes.
For all of my classes, local and online, I write and publish my own textbooks and other resources for my students, assign homework, grade homework with specific instruction for improvement, assign grades, send out progress reports, and award language arts credits for successful completion. I teach 7th-12th grade homeschooled students and everyone starts with the basics, then proceeds through the more advanced courses.

If you would like to discuss the classes, please send me an email through my Contact tab! I love teaching writing and I love talking about it, too!
