How Hiring a Writing Tutor Can Benefit Your Child
For many children, English class can be frustrating. Learning grammar is challenging, and they don’t enjoy their reading or writing assignments. Inevitably, their school grades start to slip. Some children struggle with learning disabilities that make the writing process more difficult; others just don’t think that their classes are worthwhile. Every parent and English teacher has heard “When am I going to use this in real life?” more than once.
Usually, if they don’t receive help when they’re children, their struggles with writing will continue into adulthood. Many adults and college students have discovered too late that writing classes are, in fact, applicable to the real world. College essays make up a massive part of the curriculum. And once they leave college, adults are faced with writing cover letters, work emails, presentations, resumes, and other projects. Writing is an essential skill that everyone should learn and yet, many children fall behind and never get the chance to get caught up.
