Good writing skills are critical to a student’s success, both in the classroom and out. Students who can effectively articulate their thoughts in written format, use grade appropriate vocabulary, and write thoughtful, engaging content excel not only in courses like English, History, and Social Studies, but also on state standardized tests and college entrance exams like the ACT and SAT. But unfortunately, good writing mechanics often go untaught in the traditional classroom. While teachers recognize their importance, the rigors of the curriculum and distractions of the classroom leave little time to work with students on writing skills for writing’s sake. That’s why Santa Clarita In-Home Tutoring developed its proprietary writing program, Power of Words®.

Why is the Power of Words program so effective? Because it helps students accomplish a number of important things, such as:

  • Improving writing skills and confidence
  • Gaining better writing mechanics
  • Enhancing style and flow for your writing
  • Learning how to write effective narratives, poems, essays & even research papers!
  • Preparing for SAT, ACT & college application essay writing too!

The Power of Words program is designed for students in grades 5 through 12. This 6 week intensive summer program introduces and explains strategies for efficient, effective writing skills. The book and workbook are filled with useful diagrams and illustrations, and a variety of engaging articles and topics of varying difficulty that students can use to practice their emerging writing skills. When the book introduces a new strategy, there is a “flag” to the corresponding workbook exercises that allow the student to apply their newly developed skills. The homework exercises have a real world application that students respond very well to, and involve hands on activities to help drive home important concepts from the book.
