Series Details


Once or twice a week, we'll go over the steps to writing powerful and noteworthy essays by breaking essay writing into chunks and engage in fun exercises to build stronger academic writing.

We will create an essay together with a topic of your choice and also sample a variety of topics through practice exercises.

There are 10 total sessions that span over 5 weeks.

UPDATE: There are 2 versions of this series. Version 1 is on Saturdays and spans 90 minutes. Version 2 is on Mondays, with a focus on lessons, and Fridays, with a focus on completing work. Version 2 sessions are 60 minutes each.

Let me know if you are interested in participating, but the times and/or dates don't work out for you. I may be willing to make an adjustment!


Please message the tutor in advance for any absences!

About the Tutor

Hello! My name is Amanda. I am a rising freshman student from Virginia. I specialize in essay writing here on Schoolhouse, as well as the development of creative narratives. I'm also introducing new topics in enrichment! My favorite books include mysteries, such as those by Agatha Christie, and dystopia novels like "Scythe," "Shatter Me," and "Divergent." I have a wide taste, so DM me if you need/have book suggestions or need writing help! Beyond reading, I'm a creative writer and I've won a Scholastic Writing Regional Silver Key award in my first year submitting. I also enjoy expressing myself through content creation and blogging. I love participating in school clubs. I had founded and presided over my school's Current Events Club. I was also a member of the National Junior Honor Society, second place for award rate in our top-ranked Model UN team, and I was a school new-student Ambassador.
