Jumpstarting your child’s skills and confidence

Ever feel like your 5th grader is turning you into a parrot? (“Did you write your paper yet?” “Did you write your paper yet?” “Did you write your paper yet?”) If your child is avoiding writing assignments, take heart. Many 5th graders struggle with writing skills.

Through our 5th grade writing tutoring program, Sylvan tutors can help. Each writing lesson, designed with your child’s needs in mind, develops your child’s writing skills and boosts their confidence with bigger writing assignments. As your child grows more relaxed and adept with writing, you’ll love watching your child flourish!

With our 5th grade writing tutoring program, your child will learn how to:

  • Apply the five steps of the writing process: prewriting, drafting, revising, editing and publishing
  • Master writing techniques, including paragraph and essay development
  • Sharpen vocabulary and spelling skills
  • Master grammar and punctuation rules

Writing programs by grade levels

We offer writing programs from 2nd through 12th grade to help students improve their writing in elementary, middle and high school.


What our parents and students are saying:

“Sylvan has been very supportive with my child’s needs and has greatly improved her grades and confidence.”
