Company Overview:

The Writing Studio has been in operation since 2010. We have a proven record of success. We help students develop writing fluency, confidence, and competence. Students have come to love writing, and as a result, they have excelled in their English/Language Arts (ELA) Classes, as well as ELA exams.

City Kidz World Writing Studio loves helping children develop a relationship with writing! Our commitment to that idea has led us to sponsor a tri-yearly children's literary magazine: City Kidz World magazine.

There are many skills that can be developed with drill and skill worksheets or repetitive practice, but writing is not one of those skills.

Our program uses a variety of methods to help students become accomplished writers.

Students come to the Writing Studio at least once a week to work with accomplished, language arts tutors. They complete various types of language arts and writing assignments over the weeks, months or years. All children who join our program have a transformative experience.
