Writing Coaches

Effective writing matters! But we understand that writing is a process, and often a scary one for teenagers. We believe effective writing is possible through coaching, modeling, and lots of practice. Our writing coaches help students develop lifelong writing skills and strategies as they work through composing school assignments, personal statements for applications, and resumes and cover letters. Additionally, as a result of their work with our writing coaches, many students see a measurable improvement in their English and other writing-based course marks, as well as in their executive-functioning skills and study habits.

Students seek our assistance for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Assistance getting organized
  • Guidance with academic writing
  • Brainstorming and getting started in a positive direction
  • Understanding the difference between academic writing and subjective, personal essay writing, and succeeding at both
  • Conquering the challenging task of writing and writing about themselves
  • Support dealing with the sheer volume of work required

Our writing coaches can help students brainstorm appropriate writing topics, plan essay outlines, and expand draft documents. They also can offer ongoing feedback and editing advice to ensure students stay on topic and answer essay prompts concisely and effectively. They specialize in turning drafts into polished pieces. Our writing coaches’ goal is to help students maximize their personal and writing strengths and gain confidence in their written communication abilities.
