Free Writing Assessment 

There are so many building blocks to become a successful writer that it is often difficult for parents to identify what is causing a child to struggle. Children are struggling today to find enough time to master the writing skills being taught. It is common for children to skip essential building blocks that cause them to struggle in every subject. It is critically important to properly identify the ares of struggle and prescribe the appropriate instruction needed.

The free writing assessment will test students in the following areas...

  • Ideas - The main message
  • Organization - The internal structure of the piece
  • Voice - The personal tone and flavor of the author's message
  • Word Choice - The vocabulary a child chooses to convey meaning
  • Sentence Fluency - The rhythm and flow of the language
  • Conventions - The mechanical correctness
  • Presentation / Handwriting - How the writing actually looks on the page


Private Writing Tutor  

When a child is struggling with writing it effects every area of the life. Your only choice is to sign up for a writing workshop / class or hire a writing tutor. At Arden Reading Center, we encourage you to do both. The writing workshop allows the child to practice their writing while a private writing tutor helps narrow in on the areas that the child is still struggling. The combination of the writing workshop and private writing tutoring is the most effective way to improve a child's writing.

The benefits to private tutoring include..

  • Private individualized attention
  • customized problem solving
  • Individualized motivation
  • Personal accountability
  • Increased self esteem

Private Writing Tutor Fees: 
$50.00 per hour or $25.00 per half hour


Parent Participation - Parent Resources

The most important step to helping your child improve their writing is to have them take a writing assessment. The writing assessment will help identify what areas of writing you need to focus on. Once you are aware of the proper area of writing to focus on then you will be able to select the proper resource.
