Sassy Mama: English Creative
Writing At The Writer’s Place
Posted on 27 November 2017
Got a budding Hemingway or Austen on your hands? The Writer’s Place is the perfect English reading and writing programme for young writers, mama!
Whether your children enjoy writing or are looking to discover it in a fun and exciting way, the classes at The Writer’s Place are a great option to pursue! As specialists in English creative writing, their teaching methodologies are proven to help children learn effectively and most importantly, while having fun.
From using games and movement (no wonder they have fun!) to engaging children through a step-by-step learning process, they foster a love of reading in kids while they are still young. Not only does this help in greatly improving their vocabulary but it also enhances their story writing technique – double win, mama!
“Personally, I think that the most important thing is that my child enjoys attending class. The stories taught in class are a break from the norm and have interesting twists in them. I appreciate that the teachers give constant feedback regarding my child’s progress and behaviour in class. Worksheets are well structured, interesting and give sufficient practice in the 1.5-hour class. They are also excellent for easy quick reference and revision,” says one of their many ardent fan parents.
But it’s not just fun and games. With nearly the entire PSLE student cohort scoring A’s in English, The Writer’s Place is focused on results and is exam-oriented, too.
And parents play as important a role as their attending students! “I appreciate how the lessons are conducted and guide children in developing content for their compositions. Most importantly, they engage with parents! Explaining the strengths and weaknesses of my children and how I can partake a role in helping them. The teacher has really guided my daughter well, not just as a teacher but also as a mentor. I like the energy that the teachers have exhibited – in a way, it motivates the children to learn even better,” says another elated parent!
With two well located branches at Choa Chu Kang or Woodlands, there’s reason for celebration, as The Writer’s Place expands further, mama! These English composition stalwarts are opening a new centre soon (April 2018) at Pasir Ris, adding a third convenient location under their wing.
And if you are looking to engage your mini- authors during the December school holidays, there’s still time to enrol in their 2017 December Holiday Programme. A 5-day Creative Writing programme (4 – 8 December at Choa Chu Kang or 11-15 December at Woodlands) that caters to enhancing English writing in students – these holiday lessons are great to try out The Writer’s Place, before enrolling in their regular Creative Writing classes.
Ready for your young author to take on his or her love for creative writing to the next level? The passionate and qualified teachers at The Writer’s Place look forward to meeting you and explaining more! Sign up right away!
