Write and Bloom Eight-Week Live Online Writing Course

Are You Worried Your Child’s Creative Writing Will Lead to 11 Plus Exam Failure?

Children learn so much about writing when they can bounce ideas off each other!

The 11 Plus can be a lonely journey – paper after paper after paper. It can be so competitive that the enjoyment is sucked right out of it.

Creative writing is an essential skill for your child’s 11 Plus success, and with so much ocmpetition to get into top grammar and independent schools, you need an experienced tutor to get your child on the right track!

Yes, ideas generations skills can be easily taught to children, but they can also be learned from their peers. That’s why small groups can be an effective way for children to learn how to improve their writing while making it fun along the way!

The Write and Bloom course has been designed by Joycellyn Akuffo, the managing director and journalist at Geek School Tutoring, after a decade of supporting children in their competitive 11 Plus journey. As a seasoned writer and tutor of the 11 Plus, she has developed her unique teaching method that helps children learn to engage effectively in the writing process. This means they can learn how to write with confidence and clarity, generate ideas to write about on all subjects and purposes, and express themselves creatively through the written word.

By the end of the Write and Bloom course, your child will be able to understand what makes good writing great. They will also learn about sentence structure, grammar rules, and punctuation marks, which make them an effective writer. They’ll also learn how to plan out their ideas before putting pen to paper, so they know exactly what they want to say before they start writing it down on paper. And finally, your child will have access to a renowned tutor who has more than a decade’s experience coaching children through grammar and independent school exams, who will be throughout the course!

You won’t find another online tutoring service like ours anywhere else! So why not sign up today? It only takes a few minutes, and we guarantee results before the end of the course!

Spaces are limited to 10 students per course, which is a great group size for students to bounce ideas off each other and learn from one another without getting left behind.

Working in small groups of no more than ten children, this weekly group will cover the 12 areas of writing in the 11 Plus – for grammar and independent schools tests.

From the success of Geek School Tutoring’s Creative Writing Crash Course, the Write and Bloom Course does everything that our celebrated Creative Writing Crash Course does in terms of teaching and the provision of materials. However, it has the added benefit of a live weekly 75-minute tuition session with our founder, Joycellyn Akuffo.
