I volunteer at a great nonprofit called @library twice a week where I teach super-motivated, funny, and smart adults, age 16-40. A few of my students are high school students, a few university students, a handful are college professors, and some are tour guides or service workers who have a passion for writing. We focus on writing; on one day, we do creative writing (poems, stories), and on the other day we do professional/academic writing (essays, emails, etc). I love teaching these students for completely different reasons than I love teaching my 5th graders...I can relate to them as adults and friends, and also I can teach an area that I'm really passionate about, and that I believe can really empower someone.
