Over our past 20+ years of working with students, we can tell you that writing is one of the most important skills students can develop for success not just in high school, but also in college and professional life.
Our writing tutors work with students in middle and high school to foster their academic writing abilities. We develop customized programs for each student, tailored to their individual strengths and weaknesses. Although we specialize in the types of writing most often required at the secondary level—essays, book reports, research papers and reader responses—we’re happy to work with students on other types of writing projects as well.
The Academic Writing Program includes a 15-minute introductory call and 5 or 10 hours of one-on-one guided writing instruction, along with personalized writing exercises and essay feedback from your tutor. This program—conducted via phone, email, and video chat—is intensive, and it is designed to run over the course of 1-3 weeks.
Our Academic Writing Program includes:
- Personalized Writing Analysis: Our tutors will review samples of your work and develop with you a game-plan for improving your writing.
- 5 or 10 Hours of One-on-One Guided Writing Instruction: You’ll work with one of our tutors by phone, Skype, and email to learn approaches and techniques to better your writing. Instead of working out of a textbook, we’ll create customized strategies and exercises specifically for you, and we’ll go over them with you on a one-on-one basis.
- A Polished Piece of Academic Writing: At the conclusion of your program, you’ll put your new skills to use by producing an essay, research paper, book report, reader response, or other writing project that allows you to showcase your new skills. We’re happy to help you develop a piece of writing that suits a school assignment.
Our counselors are accustomed to tutoring over the phone and reviewing drafts by email. They can work with students from anywhere in the world, at any time.
