Learning Center or Private Tutor?

Learning centers either do one of two things for people who try them:

  1. They improve your child’s grades in roughly 6 months flat.
  2. Nothing.

What if I told you that neither one of these results is completely desirable? If your child is not seeing ANY improvement after the 3-month mark, it’s time to look elsewhere.

I worked at a well-known learning center for years, and there were a few things that I found to be odd. I vowed to improve those things once I got my own tutoring business…and I have.

If your child has trouble with decoding words or with writing an essay, let’s schedule a consultation to talk about some possible solutions.

Why Essay Transitions Matter

Do your child’s essay assignments lack flow? Is the writing all over the place?

Not enough folks talk about essay transitions, so kids often don’t understand the basic anatomy of an essay and why transitions between paragraphs even matter.

This video will help them “get it.” Here’s one way to make a BAD essay GREAT.

Using the Right Essay Format

Essay format is one of those things that only gets trickier as children get older. Use this video as a guide to learning the most basic way to structure an essay.

Keep in mind that the expectation for essay format will change in the higher grade levels. For now, this should work for 3rd to 8th grade students.

30 Writing Prompts for Kids

When I was coming up (back in neanderthal days), writing prompts for kids were so vanilla that it made my head hurt:

  • Write about a time when you felt proud.
  • How do you get your day started?
  • What color are clouds? Why do you think that’s so?

That’s why I’ve come up with 30 writing prompts for kids that won’t make them fall asleep before they’ve even started writing. I’d love to see what stories your kids write based on these prompts! Let me know : )
