Advanced Writing Program- Prep for Next Grade

Writing is an important life skill. It is not only important for academics but is a requirement for college admissions and for a successful professional life. Current school closures have made it even more critical.
Do not take it lightly. Parents SPEND thousands of dollars during high school years for SAT Prep and College Essay Counseling. That is a quick bandaid fix. Every parent should think of writing as a foundational skill that needs to be nurtured from an early age/grade level. You can INVEST a few hundred dollars now and help your child develop a skill that they will reap benefits from for the rest of their lives.
My name is Eileen Mammen and I am an ELA educator with over 25 years of experience mentoring students from all grade levels in English Writing, Reading Comprehension, Grammar and Vocabulary. Contact my office today at 925-973-8087 or email [email protected] to get started. I have developed an 8-week advanced writing and reading comprehension summer program that helps students prep for the next grade level. I promise you’ll not just see an improvement in ELA but an overall improvement in grades as my curriculum focuses on success for your child.

Summer Prep for Grades 1-3 Reading & Writing

Dear parents,
My name is Sarah, an elementary school teacher and I am heading into my fifth year of teaching. Michigan State University is my Alma Mater, (go green!) I graduated with a major in Elementary Education and a teaching focus in Language Arts. Additionally, I minored in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.)
This summer, I plan to bring my love and expertise in reading and writing to the incoming students in grades 1-3.  Early focus and mentoring in reading and writing helps children develop phonological awareness, alphabet knowledge, and print awareness, which are skills associated with future reading and writing proficiencies.
I have taught reading and creative writing courses across elementary grade levels. I pride myself in fostering a fun, meaningful, and safe environment to flourish these skills and develop more assurance in one’s abilities. I am looking forward to the opportunity to share my expertise, and in turn, have students discover their own.
For enrollment or any questions about the summer program, please call or text my helpful team at 925-973-8087. Classes will be conducted online. I look forward to helping your child this summer!
-Ms. Sarah
