A talented writing tutor can seed good habits that will serve a student well and pay incredible dividends over the course of their life.
What Does a Writing Tutor Help With?
School class sizes in LAUSD are among the highest in the nation. With so many students’ needs to manage, even the world’s greatest teacher is going to struggle to provide the kind of one-on-one support that many students benefit from. A writing tutor can plug this deficit and ensure that your child learns the fundamentals of reading and writing, guiding them through any pitfalls or blind spots they may encounter. At this early stage in their intellectual and emotional development, some students can grow frustrated very easily and give up on school tasks they are finding difficult, such as writing. It is vital that these students receive the support they need to overcome their difficulties. With the right tutor, students can learn that writing is not only useful, but fun.
Writing skills are fundamental to learning. Especially at this grade level, study habits that become established can determine the trajectory of your child’s education; which in turn can set the foundation for their professional success. A Tutoring4Less writing tutor will ensure that their elementary-level student leaves the 6th grade confident and adept in the use of:
- Grammar including correct capitalization and punctuation
- Sentence structure
- Paragraph structure
Elementary School Writing Tutoring
When a Tutoring4Less tutor begins working with a new elementary student, the first thing to do is a skills assessment. This will ensure that the tutor and student understand the extent of the student’s writing skills, and what should be prioritized in the learning plan. As the rapport between student and tutor develops, it is likely that the preferred learning style of the student will become apparent. In most cases, the tutor should be able to accommodate this preference. This will further benefit the student and improve their learning outcomes.
From the fundamentals of simple sentence construction and punctuation, an elementary writing tutor can help a student develop and explore their creative and persuasive writing skills, learning how to use adverbs and verb tenses in their writing, how to convey character and plot, and utilize these tools together. In higher grades, essay writing is discussed and tutors support students in their compositions— though our tutors will never proofread or correct a student’s mistakes, only give them the guidance they need so that they can learn how to correct their own writing assignments. Proofreading is part of the writing process and a necessary skill to be honed.
Tutoring4Less provides writing tutoring services to students in the:
- 1st grade
- 2nd grade
- 3rd grade
- 4th grade

The Benefits of an Online Writing Tutor
With the changes that the pandemic has brought on us, more people are interested in online tutoring options. While Tutoring4Less has a writing center for students seeking in-person tutoring, we are also happy to offer online support for students of all ages. In order for the best learning to occur, students must have three things in place: social belonging, academic rigor, and emotional stability. Online tutoring can provide at least two of those, under the right circumstances. In addition, online tutoring offers these benefits:
- The ability to work remotely. For a growing number of people, the modern work environment looks like their home. Working remotely is not a fad, it is the future of office work. Students need to become comfortable with remote working, and elementary school is as good a time as any.
- Time saving. Instead of traveling to the tutoring center, then collecting your child after the session is over, your child can receive the writing tuition they need from home.
- Money saving. As well as saving time on transportation, there are fuel/public transportation cost savings and related costs for having your child away from home for hours at a time such as money for snacks and drinks.
- Recording sessions. With the student (and parents’) permission, tutoring sessions can be recorded so that they can be replayed for the benefit of the student.
