Strong writing skills are an essential part of academic performance in almost every area of study—not to mention how critical they are in the workplace. Writing is much more than the ability to put words on a page: it's a primary communication tool. Many students who fall behind on writing, especially those in middle school (when they are first expected to write essays), feel self-conscious, and may come to hate writing—an attitude which may prevent them from fulfilling their true potential.
That's why Study Wizards Tutoring in San Jose has some tips for parents who want to help their children develop stronger writing skills:
Talk to your child's teacher to find out what their expectations are, and in which specific areas your child can improve. After writing, have your children read their work aloud, either to you or by themselves. This technique helps reinforce the relationship between the written word and everyday speech.
Remind your child that writing is a process, so after they finish a draft it may need a few revisions until it's done. Encourage any reading activity. The fastest way to become a good writer is to become a good reader.
And don't hesitate to ask for help. A professional writing tutor will have extensive experience helping students of all skill levels become better writers.
