Writing Accelerator (for Primary 2 to 4) - 4 Weeks only

Do your children have the following difficulties with writing? 

- Lack of ideas to write an original story
- Too many ideas and ended up writing a confusing story
- Not able to express their ideas clearly and coherently
- Writing out of topic

Our Writing Accelerator programme will address those issues and teach your child effective techniques to significantly elevate their writing scores!

Common Issues that Baffled Parents


==>> Your child may read a lot but is unable to write a good piece of composition independently.
==>> Your child may enjoy writing and practise writing compositions diligently, but he/she still scores below 17/20 consistently.
==>> Your child may read and memorise a lot of model compositions, but he/she struggles to write outstanding pieces on unfamiliar topics.

At From Tiny Acorns, our tried-and-tested Writing Accelerator programme will help your child improve their writing by leaps and bounds!
We have crafted a structured and powerful Writing Accelerator programme designed to help students learn to craft coherent compositions while developing their individual writing voice.

How does it work?


1. Each week, students attend a 30 min Skills and Techniques group lesson, conducted LIVE via Zoom.
2. Weekly Composition topic is emailed to parents.
