Course instructor

Jennifer Chutter

Jennifer Chutter has had a long and varied career of teaching writing to elementary, high school, and undergraduate students. She has years of experience teaching students with learning disabilities, ADHD, neurodiversity, and mental health issues. She believes that everyone can write more successfully and with less stress because it is a skill that needs to be practiced. In her experience, many students have not been given the emotional support or the understanding of academic conventions to develop their skills as a writer. This course will help you to identify your strengths as a writer, and to give tools and strategies to remediate your writing. It is designed to meet you where you are at, whether you are first semester or last semester.
