About the course

Welcome to Part 1 of Sentence Diagramming! Diagramming is logic applied to language. It REALLY REALLY helps when you start talking about the different types of clauses, and how to punctuate them, if you can visualize the pieces of the sentence and how they work together–that's all diagramming is. A visual aid for sentences. It's super easy to learn, and I'm super excited to be able to explore this topic with you all!

Hi, I’m Josiah! I’ve been enjoying helping students in areas of writing, English, and communication for four years now. I am a native of Virginia, where I obtained my undergraduate degree in international relations with a focus in public policy and Modern Standard Arabic. I received my Advanced TESOL certification (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) this past year, and I am currently working toward my Masters of Public Administration. As my full-time job, I have been working for the US House of Representatives for approximately one year now. As one has attempted to learn another language (Latin, Arabic, German, and Spanish), I have grown in my appreciation for patience in learning and in teaching. That has inspired my passion for helping others understand English and enjoy the thrill of learning!
