Are you concerned about your tenth-grader's writing? It is not too late to strengthen the foundations that are necessary for your student to develop mature writing skills for the future. In tenth grade, your child will continue to apply his or her writing skills to a range of tasks and topics that grow increasingly difficult and involved. His or her literature classes will require a growing emphasis on analysis and insight, as well as the ability to coherently translate their ideas onto paper.
Likewise, in preparation for the ACT and/or SAT, it will be necessary for your child to develop a focused ability to argue consistently and logically in response to a provided prompt. Such skills frequently require further development and adjustment at this point in your child's studies. Instead of being distressed by such a need, let Varsity Tutors help you connect with the perfect tutor to help your child strengthen their writing skills and move on to future success.
It is very difficult to provide adequate feedback about a student's writing abilities in the context of a group class or in the limited time available during after-school tutoring programs. It takes a significant period of time for a tutor or teacher to read, critique, and develop feedback in response to a writing passage, even if it is only several pages long. This process requires one-on-one interaction and careful evaluation of all the details of your child's written work. A personal tutor is thus the best option for helping to improve your child's writing. Given the importance of standardized tests, as well as the admissions essays that your child may soon be writing for college, it is critical that you provide adequate support for his or her writing abilities.
The ability to effectively communicate is an important factor by which your child's intelligence and maturity will be measured by future colleges and employers. Many students will have high GPAs and be able students in quantitative and verbal reasoning. However, real distinctions emerge when administrators read an applicant's written words. Writing is such an important skill that not being able to write well can have an extremely negative impact on your child's future. Your child's writing ability will determine everything from whether they get into college to what college they can get into and the type of job they can obtain in the future.
Writing can be a long and arduous process. It is easy to get frustrated at any point along the way, but a private tutor can help encourage and guide them.
