Writing Tutor Tips on How to Improve Your Teenager's Writing Skills, Cambrian Park, California

Your child’s years during middle and high school are a crucial time, especially for reading and writing: it's at this time that they develop the language, vocabulary, and writing skills that will serve as a foundation for the rest of their lives. The reading and writing tutors from Study Wizards Tutoring in San Jose, CA, want to help your child succeed, so here are some helpful writing tips for you and your student. 

Practice Makes Perfect: To write well, the first thing you need to do is encourage them to write! Have your child practice writing regularly, even if it’s only small exercises like paragraph construction or creating an outline for an essay. These are the building blocks that make great writing, and having them do these exercises will get them thinking about the big picture. You might want to even suggest they start a diary or given our times, a blog. If your child has opinions and observations and wants to tell the world, a blog is the perfect vehicle.
 
Revising Work: If your child is struggling with writing, one of the best ways they can improve is by revising their work, either with you or a writing tutor. Writing is a process, and not many people get it right on the first try — even professional novelists go through a countless number of drafts before publishing their work. A famous example: Ernest Hemingway rewrote the ending of A Farewell to Arms 47 times!  

Reread It Out Loud: One of the best ways to help students improve their writing skills is to train them to teach themselves, and reading out loud can be a great way to do this. Teaching your child to reread their work out loud will help them pay better attention to funny sounding sentences or improper language, and it's a great way for them to get ahead.
