1:1 Tutoring/Coaching, All Ages, All Learners


The importance of learning to write grows as children progress through school. Writing is a complex skill that students do not develop independently, from mastering grammar and sentence construction to organizing ideas and composition.

As a fundamental skill, effective writing enables individuals to learn and analyze new ideas, persuade, express thoughts and feelings, entertain, and record information and personal experiences. Writing is an invaluable skill in school because it allows students to demonstrate what they have learned using their own words and allows teachers to understand better what their students have or have not understood. It promotes creativity and critical thinking and is an essential tool for learning.

However, not all students in the classroom receive enough writing practice and instruction. While teaching students to be effective writers is a fundamental goal of education, research shows that not all schools can meet this need. Writing tutoring is an excellent way to ensure your child receives the necessary writing practice and guidance.

A private writing tutor can pinpoint your child’s weaknesses and devise a strategy to address them. Your child’s writing tutor can assist in focusing a student’s developing expression skills and developing them into articulate writing. You can avoid several ongoing writing issues by correcting early confusion or errors.

Our Manhattan writing tutor, Peter, specializes in teaching students the fundamental skills required to become competent writers and strengthening their writing knowledge as they progress through elementary and middle school.
