English Literature student gives literature and essay writing classes for high school students in Toronto

Methodology

My teaching methods are to assign books and form a discussion group around the books. As well, I will assign short essays in order to determine the level of the writing of the student to better assist them. My classes are meant for any level of high school.

Background

I am an English literature student in my last year at York University. I have a huge passion for fiction and copyediting. I would love to help high school students gain a passion for literature, while also refining their writing skills
