"Our daughter's writing is displaying organization and is progressing logically from one idea to another. She is now using vocabulary that is in line with her intellectual abilities. I just received her standardized scores from school, and she went up markedly in all areas. "

Writing

student writing homework Effective writing is essential as a lifelong communication skill. Students must describe orally before they can capture their ideas in writing. In the primary grades, children must master letter formation and be able to present their thoughts on paper with relative ease. They need to acquire a broad vocabulary before concise summaries can be recorded, and descriptive passages can be composed. Children need to produce a variety of passages - descriptive, expository, creative, persuasive etc. We create opportunities for planning, drafting, revising, proof-reading and finally producing the finished copy. Individual needs in mechanics (punctuation and capitalization), grammar, usage, and written expression are identified and strengthened.

mother and daughter doing homework together on a computer We address the wide range of each school's expectations for writing, including paragraphs and multi-paragraph essays, common grammar errors and the complex topics included in the high school English curriculums. We serve students in regular classes, the accelerated public school programs (GATE classes including I.B. and Honors), and those attending private elementary, middle schools and high schools. We assist students to engage in internet research in support of their writing projects.

Spelling is an integral part of successful writing. All students can improve their spelling skills, even those who are convinced that they will never conquer spelling. The latest techniques for teaching spelling are employed.

Some of our students have won writing contests, and have had their written pieces published in school magazines.
