I came from Brazil to US six years ago, English is my second language and I really struggle when I need to write. I have learned a lots of English since I arrived here. Last year I assisted English classes at the community college near my house that helped a lot with grammar, got A, B, but couldn't pass the writing class. The grammar teacher was sweet as mash mellow, but the writing teacher was awful, she was picky, really sad, miserable person. The college requirement to pass to the next level was 70% but she required 80%, since my final tests results was 76%, I failed. Unlike grammar class that I passed with 94% score. I'm thinking about go back to college and take English classes again, but I get scared every time I think it. The awful teacher left me with bad memories that push me back. A good teacher make difference. Hoping to find a good one in my next class. While I wait to make a decision I'm searching the best way in how to improve my writing skills.
God bless you!
