We believe that all students can be successful and proficient at reading, writing, and communicating. We enjoy challenging those students who seem to be natural-born writers, who love to read the classics such as Dickens, and who aspire to a career in writing, journalism, or communications.
We also loveSeeing progress in students who currently read at a lower level than their peers, students who prefer comic books to novels, and those students who may have difficulty constructing a well-written sentence or paragraph. We take pleasure in encouraging students who already enjoy reading and are writing well and those who would benefit from positive classroom interactions such as peer editing, group and class discussions.
All levels of instruction geared to individual needs. We offer the benefits of group discussion of literature as well as social interaction. By meeting our objectives, we hope to lighten the load of the home-educating teacher and lend support in this vital subject.
