The W.R.i.T. Method ©
The W.R.i.T. Method © is a four-to-five-session program that helps high school seniors (and juniors) prepare their college application essays for submission. Whether it’s a personal statement or a targeted question, The W.R.i.T. Method © gives students the tools and confidence they need to ensure their contributions stand out among their peers.

*Please note, I DO NOT write student essays for them. My role is to coach them toward their best essays and offer them foundational grammar and punctuation conventions as needed.
The W.R.i.T. Model ©
The W.R.i.T. Model © is a customizable teacher-coaching program to help individual secondary (7-12) Humanities teachers or a group of teachers embrace the "human approach" to teaching. The model rests upon a foundation of resonance and connection with content, students, and self. Teachers may participate individually or as a cohort of up to four colleagues.

Four Sessions - 1.5 hours each

Who doesn’t love a good story? In this session, we discuss how to use the power of storytelling to include and inspire students to participate in their education.
