1-on-1 sessions or small group sessions are a great way to receive individualized attention outside of the classroom. Well-Turned Writer provides reading and writing support for all grade levels.
What outcome should your child have as an active reader? They should be able to:
compare and contrast characters and themes
make prediction and inferences that lead to drawing conclusions
recognize cause and effect
understand main ideas and details
summarize what they've read in their own words
What outcome should your child have as an active writer? Well, first we need to understand that writing is a four-step process. We brainstorm an idea, we draft our piece, we revise by adding or eliminating details, and THEN we edit for grammar and spelling.
We also need to consider what we are writing. From there we can define our goals. Is it to clearly state our opinions in a persuasive piece or is it to flavor our sentences with figurative language and descriptive imagery?
Whether your child needs help with homework or a lesson plan, 1-on-1 instruction provides a space for them to work out any academic shortcomings with thorough end results.
