Writing Accelerator (for Pri 2 to 6) - 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 (lower Pri) or 35/40 (upper Pri) 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 children improve their writing by leaps and bounds!
Our structured and powerful programme is specially designed to help students learn to craft coherent compositions while developing their individual writing voice.

How does it work?

1. Students attend a 45 min group lesson, conducted LIVE via Zoom. Learn skills and techniques. Write draft 1 after lesson and submit within 2 days.
2. Draft 1 is graded and returned with detailed feedback for students to write draft 2.
3. A one-on-one Zoom coaching session is arranged for the first 3 topics. Duration is between 10 and 20 min depending on child's needs. In this session, students will be guided to IMPROVE his writing STYLE, further DEVELOP his IDEAS before he writes draft 2.
5. Student writes draft 2 independently and submits within 2 days.
6. Draft 2 is graded and returned with feedback.
