Why Children Struggle

  • Our brains are naturally wired to speak; they are not naturally wired to read and write.
  • Writing, like reading needs to be directly taught.
  • Limited or poor instruction.

How do we address these problems?

  • Using both the Montessori and Orton Gillingham approach, we help students master the mechanics of writing with studies of grammar, spelling, word study and punctuation.
  • We focus on the creative process of writing through the process of prewriting, drafting, editing and publishing.
