Description: Writing 3/4 is a class designed to help students enjoy the process of becoming confident, creative, and independent writers. Exposure to a variety of inspiring authors will allow students to enter the magical world of words, sentence structure, and inspiration that can be adapted to their own writing assignments. Weekly assignments will cover grammar, basic writing mechanics, and literature comprehension.

Tutor: Bonita Jerome fell in love with teaching while working as an administrator and tutor at a small missionary kids’ school in the Philippines just after graduating from high school. Returning to the U.S. in 1990, she pursued a career in elementary and middle school education with an emphasis on language arts. She then spent over a decade teaching elementary and middle school students at private Christian schools. Bonita is excited to have the opportunity to continue using her teaching experience in the homeschool community as she homeschools her own three children and begins her second year of tutoring at CHAT.
