At-home Curriculum to Help Your Student Learn
to Write Well at Grade Level
What is Essentials in Writing’s Supplemental Writing Program?
Essentials in Writing is a complete video-based writing curriculum for students in grades 1-12. We have designed a concentrated 18-week supplemental writing program that will act as an online writing tutor to your child and give them the tools they need to catch up to grade level.
Are you concerned that your students may not be writing at grade level? Are you looking for an after-school writing coach or tutor because your child is struggling? You are not alone! According to a recent survey conducted by Horace Mann, more than half of public school teachers are reporting significant learning deficits in their students as they return to school this year. Essentials in Writing is here to help students close the gap and get their writing skills back on track!
We are pleased to offer our new 18-week writing programs that are designed to help your students master writing, from just the basics to help with writing essays, narratives, and research papers, in 30 minutes or less a day, four times a week. Perfect for accelerated homeschool learning, after-school tutoring at home, or as a supplemental part of a remedial program within a school, our 18-week online writing programs for elementary, middle school, and high school students will help your child succeed in areas where they previously struggled.

Which Level is Right for My Student?
If your child has always struggled with writing, simply choose a level below your child’s grade (e.g. If your student is in 7th grade, select Level 6 or lower). This will allow your child to really focus on writing with less complicated prompts. Our goal is for your child to gain confidence as they master the basics of good writing.
Still unsure? Use our handy Level Selection Wizard as your guide or schedule a call with us to help determine your student’s placement.
If your child is just slightly behind or you feel as though they could use more writing practice to perform at grade level, simply choose a level that coincides with your child’s grade (e.g. Level 7 is appropriate for a student in 7th grade) to compliment what they are already learning in school.
