writing is taught as a separate subject from reading at SMARTS. Texas curriculum has different skill sets that re tested in STAAR than reading. Writing program includes Grammar, Punctuation, Revising and editing and craft of writing.
We teach different strategies of writing tutoring depending on the genre of writing aught. The kids are given templates to help them brain storm and organize ideas and write. The five processes of writing are emphasized. Our tutors focus on the composition standards tested in school as well as writing skills they will need in everyday life beyond grade school. Our instructors go through meticulous training to make sure they are constantly up to par with the latest standards in both fiction, non-fiction and ad writing so that our students get the best education possible.
