WHO DO WE TEACH AT WRITE CITY?
Communication skills have never been more important which is why our students range from elementary students to working professionals. At Write City we foster and develop the type of intellectual skills that prepare future leaders for the unique challenges of a rapidly evolving, globalized world. Students must be in grade 3 and above to apply.
WHAT CAN A SPECIALIST OFFER COMPARED TO A TUTOR?
Write City is a network of graduates who theorize learning. Our students are able to accomplish more on their own, and avoid learned helplessness, when they work through a program, in the process of acquiring valuable skills. Unlike tutors, Write City trains the mind to engage in reading and writing differently. Our talented group of MA and PhD writing specialists are intellectuals who work in dynamic mentoring relationships with students to build an exceptional degree of literacy and a strong faculty for critical thinking. The unique pairing of professional writing specialists with developing learners forms a powerful learning exchange unlike any found in the traditional classroom or in a homework helper, tutoring relationship.
WHEN CAN I BEGIN?
After we assess your reading and writing skills you select a program and we create a weekly schedule. Each program is created based on your individual needs. We consider psycho-educational assessment documents to adjust our system of instruction to your individual learning style. We design sessions to compliment our student’s strengths and passions. We empower them to find delight, satisfaction, and confidence in their learning journey.
WHERE DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Learn at our downtown Toronto office or online in the comfort of your home. In person one-on-one sessions are most popular or we can work in small groups.
WHY LEARN WITH WRITE CITY?
We provide our students with an understanding of how we engage critically with our world – and even shape it—by the way we communicate our ideas in writing.
HOW DO STUDENTS LEARN TO WRITE?
We begin with a carefully-crafted learning plan based on the student’s performance on our reading and writing assessment and then based on the results create individually tailored, skill-focused worksheets. Our worksheets set us apart from endless tutoring. We have created a system of instruction that teaches students what they need to review that's not taught in schools. Our approach is rigorous and it pays off long term. Once you know how to write, it cannot be unlearned.
