Being a good writer can change your child’s life: it gives them a way to communicate, it allows them to express themselves better, and even makes them a stronger competitor in the business world. However, in order for your child to become a good writer, they need to follow a few tips. In this post, The Tutoring Center in San Ramon will share them with you so they can improve their writing skills.

How to Help Your Child Become a Better Writer

  1. First and foremost, you should encourage your child to write, write, write! Practice makes perfect, so ensure that they lay down their thoughts, feelings, their experiences, a story or poem they’ve made up, or anything else they may like.
  2. Reading is a basic activity your child should engage in if they want to improve their writing. Reading great writers and books will give them a chance to work on their grammar, their vocabulary, their structure, and more.
  3. Practice the rules! As you know, in order to write well, your child needs to follow certain grammar, spelling and writing rules (depending on what type of text they’re going for). You can look for examples or practice sheets online so they can complete them at home.
  4. Provide the right conditions for your child to write and/or read. This means allowing them to have a comfortable, well-lit space, that’s free of distractions and in which they’ll have all of the supplies they need to write (a dictionary, for example).
  5. You should also help your child create a strategy and a routine for when they write. For example, if they’re writing about a specific topic, motivate them to research it, and to formulate their thoughts into an extensive outline where they can organize their ideas. 
  6. Lastly, show your support by reading what they’ve written, and providing constructive criticism so they can improve. By sharing, proofreading and giving feedback, your child will feel more confident in their abilities, and will consistently get better at writing.
