Better phrasing?

1

I need help rephrasing the following sentence.  It sounds really awkward to my ears...

"For the past 5 years, I’ve taught a rigorous College Writing course to seniors with tremendous success."

For all the reasons Jeff laid out, I recommend switching your sentence around to this:

 

For the past 5 years, I've had tremendous success teaching a rigorous College Writing course to seniors.

Jeff's analysis is correct and I agree with Holly's transformation.

"I’ve been teaching rigorous College Writing course to seniors with tremendous success for the past 5 years ."

 

Or maybe,

"With tremendous success, I’ve been teaching rigorous College Writing course to seniors for the past 5 years ."
