Get your Child's Writing Right

Writing expresses who you are as a person. It is the best way to organize one's thoughts into a logical and coherent framework.

The ability to write fluently gives a sense of self confidence that goes a long way in defining your child's personality. This is not a trait; but a practice that requires some tricks.
How Parents can Help

There is a lot that parents can do to help their children improve their writing skills:

» Make writing a daily habit
» Make it fun by giving the children topics that interest them to write about
» Alternatively let them choose their own topics
» Allow them to use drawings to amplify what they write and over time talk to them about how words can be used to replace the drawings
» Ask them to rewrite their favorite stories in their own words
» Enroll children in age appropriate writing tutoring programs that will improve their abilities and confidence.

» Do not criticize if things they write about are not in agreement with what you think is right. The idea is to allow them to learn the pleasure that comes from expressing their thoughts. Correcting wrong ideas can be done at another time.
» Do not force your child when she/he has no mood for it as it is always an enjoyable exercise.

"Ever since I have been learning at Pinecone, I have very much seen an increase on my grades so far. I have advanced to Gold Honor Roll before but also AFTER I participated in Pinecone. Not only I improved, but I have kept the grades and kept my honor roll at the Pinecone Learning center. My name is Erica Nguyen and I am very thankful that Pinecone has lead me to many,many successes."

~ Erica Nguyen

"I am back in school again, senior year! It's pretty exciting to almost be done with high school. Algebra 2 went well this summer, I received a B+! I hope you are doing well, and thank you again! If it was not for your help, I know I would not have done too good."

~ Tracy
Pinecone Learning - Where Your Children's Tomorrow Begin

childPinecone's methodology is to run the two foundation programs of Math and Reading at a pace which allows the child to assimilate the subject matter and apply the newly acquired skills to practical problem solving. The coaching is structured so that the child is able to reason for him/herself to achieve the highest level of comprehension. Regular practice and support instill self confidence and stimulate an eagerness to progress to the next level. Each student is guided to anticipate and surmount hurdles consistent with present day education. The end result is a happy and confident child who is justifiably proud of his or her academic achievements.
