“The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference
between lightning and a lightning bug.” - Mark Twain
Writing One to One Instruction


One-to-One Instruction: Grades 4-12.


Schools require students to demonstrate knowledge of concepts through concise, well-organized expository writing. Dynamic writing is a developmental and sequential process. Emerging writers are coached to express their unique ideas in clear, cohesive writing.  


Individualized instruction focuses on structured expository writing:

  • The writing process – brainstorming, drafting, revising, editing, publishing

  • Sentence structure – simple, compound, complex; active voice

  • Paragraph structure – basic, expanded, five-paragraph essay

  • Paragraph types – example, reason, process, compare/contrast, classification

  • Grammar, punctuation, and capitalization rules

  • Essay writing
