Writing Tutoring

Elementary, Middle and High School

Our writing program ensures students have a firm foundation for structural writing and covers narrative writing, informational writing, and expository writing. Our certified teachers start from the ground up to make sure students have a solid understanding of the structure of a written response. Once this structure is in place, our teachers then move the students beyond the gaps and extend learning.

 

Elementary School

Elementary school is the perfect time to address learning gaps before they get out of hand, and an even better time to get ahead of expectations while teachers are still covering the basics.

Our writing program for young students focuses on the development of language skills such as parts of speech and sentence structure, along with building the foundation for structured writing.

Middle School

Middle school begins to cover a vast array of skills related to the English language. These include more complex clause usage (which also requires a more in-depth knowledge of the parts of speech), sentence diagramming, and more sophisticated sentence structure. Spelling is more heavily weighed, and grammar and mechanics are expected to be more intact.

Written passages are longer, structurally-sound, and enriched with details and enough figurative language to make writing both interesting and accurate.

Our writing programs teach students to:

  • Write short, text-based constructed responses utilizing various strategies for writing
  • Practice a variety of brainstorming and pre-writing techniques
  • Establish and maintain a tone appropriate to the writing task
  • Write a cohesive essay utilizing strategies for various modes of discourse including narrative writing, informational and expository writing, and argumentative writing
  • Cite clear and relevant textual evidence
  • Acquire strategies for successful introductions and conclusions
  • Respond to creative writing prompts

High School

High school students should be able to apply themes from texts and utilize textual evidence in discussion-based questions. Writing should accurately convey intention and reasoning within a well-structured and highly-interesting piece of work.

Our certified high school teachers help students maximize the impact of their literary works by reinforcing the effective use of rhetoric, emphasizing the importance of well-chosen words, and encouraging students to get creative while they meet the criteria set forth in each assignment.
