Small-Group Classes Description

Small-group classes meet once a week for 90 minutes throughout the trimester and are limited to 8 students. A healthy snack is provided before we begin because so many students are coming straight from school. Although I design curriculum for each day’s session, the small class size guarantees that each child receives ample attention and feedback.

Before I begin working with your child, I offer a complimentary goal-setting conference so we can meet and I can hear from you what has been most effective for your child in school in the past.

This class is all about laying a strong foundation as a writer. How do I start an essay? How do I organize my writing in the first place so I don’t have a big tangle of sentences when I’m done? Am I skilled at the nuts and bolts that make language shine? This class is about picking a great idea, writing a winning first sentence, and polishing your conventions as you go. We’ll use creative writing topics to develop good writing habits not just for better grades at school but for confidence on required essays for life!

This class is designed to make school magically easier for middle schoolers by providing support in homework and basic writing skills throughout the week. We will start each session with a discussion about how to prioritize homework for the night, and then I am here to lend a hand (in any subject but math!) I will provide writing mini-lessons as needed to clarify or expound upon the night’s assignments. To get a jump on homework and enjoy a more peaceful evening at home, join the Magic Study Hall.
