Are you a parent looking to improve your children’s writing skills with the help of tutoring? Or are you a great teacher with the drive to inspire literary creativity in our youth? A great answer to that is at 826 Valencia, The Writing Center. Ample opportunity lays at 826 for students ages 6 to 18.
826 offers tutoring, field trips, workshops, internships, volunteer opportunities and scholarships. On their website they have an events calendar for the whole month, so you can plan to attend what sparks your interest.
The tutors are educated and qualified. The Writing Center offers drop-in hours for each day of the week. Field trips take place up to four times a week and allow the children and teens one-on-one help in the writing centers.
For those that are a little older, approaching the age of high school graduation, there are SAT prep classes and scholarships available to two- and four-year universities.
Keep in mind that all services are free of charge because The Writing Center is a family of seven non-profit organizations. Therefore, if your child is somewhat behind or needs special attention focused on their writing skills, this is a qualified, honest organization that may give your child the jump start they need, the extra push, and the inspiration.
