The Importance of Strong Writing and Composition Skills

Having strong writing and composition abilities is vital for your success in high school, college and your future career. According to Brown University, writing helps people to advance knowledge and convey ideas across disciplines. Having the ability to write well is also important regardless of what you would like to be in the future. If your future job will require you to engage in any type of writing, including emails, messages, blogs, customer correspondence, memorandums and others, using proper grammar and spelling while also communicating what you have to say clearly and concisely is vital. How well you write can have an impact on how you are viewed by others around you. Unfortunately, many students arrive at college with poor writing and composition skills. When you are in college, making grammatical, spelling and syntax errors is simply unacceptable.

Good writing skills are also important for both the ACT and the SAT. If you are able to write well, you can obtain better scores on your writing tests, which many schools require. When you are applying to college, demonstrating that you have excellent writing and composition skills on your college admissions essays can help you make a better impression on the college admissions officers who will be reviewing your applications. Similarly, students who write poorly leave unfavorable impressions on admissions officers and may be passed over by the colleges that they want to attend.

The Going Ivy Difference with Writing and Composition Tutoring

There are many tutors who offer help with writing and composition, and finding the tutor who will offer you the most assistance can feel overwhelming. Going Ivy is the best choice with our world-class writing and composition tutors who are able to help you master the technical grammar rules while also learning how to improve your clarity and conciseness in your writing. Commonly, writing and composition tutors use identical approaches to teaching writing to all of the students with whom they work. This type of cookie-cutter instruction does not provide the most help to students, however. Going Ivy takes the time to get to know who you are so that we can understand your needs, your voice, your strengths, and your individual learning and writing style. Our writing and composition tutors are then able to take this information in order to create writing assignments and lessons that will address your needs and help to accelerate your learning process.

Our tutors are focused on helping to encourage your level of motivation and desire to write. When students are more motivated, they find it easier to apply their new lessons to their writing. Our motivation focus helps you to achieve your goals. We also recognize that your writing and composition grades are small components of your larger goals of achieving a high GPA, getting higher scores on your ACT or SAT, and gaining admission into your dream college. By viewing your writing and composition tutoring holistically, our tutors are better able to help.

Going Ivy recognizes that many students struggle to schedule in all of their various activities and tasks. We are flexible and work to be convenient for you. You can receive your one-on-one writing and composition tutoring in your home, near your school or elsewhere. We have a conveniently located academic tutoring center that you can come to for focused writing help. We also offer writing and composition tutoring via video conferences with our tutors who are currently at the nation’s top colleges such as Stanford, Princeton, Yale and others. With this option, you can learn a little more about what attending an elite school is really like.
