(previously held at 309 Washington St., Wellesley, MA)
Writing classes are focused on expository/analytic writing strategies - developing and proving a claim or thesis statement. The curriculum follows an evidence-based teaching methodology whereby students cycle through the full writing cycle. Each cycle includes explicit writing strategies, tools and processes appropriate for the age-level. Students typically complete an essay every 4 classes. For additional information please see class descriptions at the bottom of this page. Max of 10 students/class.
For grades 6 and up included in the cost of tuition is feedback on any outlines and drafts of school assignments with the one condition that an outline is created and submitted for feedback prior to a draft being submitted.
The ISEE/SSAT class is a comprehensive test-prep class that covers math, verbal, reading comprehension, and writing. Classes will cycle through presenting strategies for how to approach each section and different types of problems, practicing problems, and reviewing concepts missed. Progress will be measured by comparing a pre-class test (we will provide) to scores on sections and practice tests throughout the class. Students will have homework plus be asked to learn new vocabulary words each day. Max of 8 students per class.
