Writing Workshop

Tutor: Nancy Micklatcher

Age Group or Grades:

Middle School (ages 12-15)

Class Description:

This is a year- long class designed for middle schoolers. During the year we will meet weekly to practice different types of writing. My goal is not to take your place as your child’s teacher, but to show you how you can help your child become a confident, effective writer. Basic grammar and other mechanics will be addressed within the context of students’ writing assignments. Students must be able to read and take notes from a white board. Homework will be assigned each week. Parents are required to attend the first 10-15 minutes of class the first day.

Materials Needed:

3-ring binder

notebook paper


access to a computer, printer, and email

Tuition and Payment Schedule:

$330 for the year

$165 due on the first day of class in September

$165 due on the first day of class in January
