PAVANI NUKALA

Story Telling / Writing
Grades: K-5

Hi my name is Pavani Nukala, and I am a rising junior at Case Western Reserve University on the pre-med track. I have more than 5 years of experience in tutoring students K-12, so I am very happy to be applying those skills to help other pupils.
I will be teaching the story writing class for elementary students. Eventually, as middle school, high school and as college students, your children will need to know how to share their points in their writing creatively, especially for their English classes and college admissions. It is important to build these skills now as young children, so that later on, their writing advances. For these classes, I will introduce and elaborate on topics like plot, characters, vocabulary, climax and verbiage, which are crucial elements in the development of writing. Each class will be spent delving into one or a few of these concepts, and the students will then learn how to apply those concepts in their writing.
Please feel free to reach out with questions!
