INSTRUCTION

WRITE/RIGHT tutoring is a home based, individually own business in SW Rochester. We provide customized handwriting instruction for preschool through elementary age children including pre-handwriting, printing and cursive writing. We utilize Handwriting Without Tears curriculum and other developmentally appropriate, hands on, fun activities to promote legible handwriting. Tutoring in handwriting can provide the extra instruction that children of all abilities may need to keep up with their classmates and meet their educational handwriting goals. To meet individual needs of children additional handwriting techniques and materials are used from handwriting programs such as,First Strokes, Size Matters, Callirobics, Write from the Start, Fantastic Fingers, Let's Do It-Write and Loops and Other Groops.

Operating hours are flexible. You can schedule your child's instruction before school, after school, evenings or Saturdays. Individual instruction is recommended for a 60 minute session one time per week. One to one instruction includes review of homework, building, tracing and writing letters. Movement activities are encouraged to promote alertness and attention as well as to increase upper extremity strength and awareness. Instruction, also includes parent consultation and daily 10-15 minute homework assignments.
