    Hi all!
    I'm a teacher for an accredited private "school" that provides one-to-one instruction. I have a large variety of students, but I'm struggling the most with teaching essay writing to my two 4th graders.
    I have a background in K-2 and middle school. My school has a large variety of curriculum available for me to choose from and I don't know where to start here. I've been using the hamburger model for creating an outline, but I know I should be providing more.
    One of my students is going into a competitive private school in the fall. She is at grade level and very bright, but the school informed the parents she's weak in essay writing (after their testing). They specifically enrolled her with my school for help improving before starting this school.
    Do you know of a program that is straight-forward and specifically focuses on essay writing? I don't have much time to learn a whole, complete curriculum and need to focus on just the writing part.
