Uplift Writing Learning Center Now Open!

December 5th, 2017 · No Comments

Uplift Writing offers tutoring and enrichment for elementary, middle, and high-school students.  Our mission is to inspire confident writers.  Uplift coaches are passionate educators and expert writers.  They work side-by-side with students on literary studies, creative writing, academic writing, critical thinking, and public speaking.  
What makes Uplift Writing unique?  
  • Highly individualized – emergent curriculum tailored to the child
  • Focus on thinking – students practice critical thinking before, during, and after writing
  • Messy and collaborative – students’ ideas are validated; they are encouraged to guess, to make mistakes, and to visually map ideas
  • Intrinsic motivation – students are inspired to be lifelong writers with publication as a goal
  • Session reports – detailed list of learning objectives covered and suggestions for home practice
  • Unique programing – designed to instill a lifelong love of reading and writing
  • The long view – Uplift Writing supports students at every stage of their development as writers and readers — from early literacy, to emerging academic writing, to advanced textual analysis
