Reading & Writing Support
READING: Students at the Corner reignite the energy and passion of reading for pleasure that was felt when we were little and books were secret doorways to all kinds of adventures. Sandra helps her clients to "engage on the page" by bringing characters to life and teaching tools of active reading, which she has lovingly nicknamed "FIREWORKS," because making connections in the text literally lights centers of our brain with color and light!
Sandra's special method of reading support has been taught to hundreds of students in both middle and upper school classes, with all kinds of readers and wonderful results. Her work is based on the latest research in neuroscience, which studies the pathways of learning in the brain and taps into our best resources for creative intelligence, critical thinking, and innovative reasoning.
Your son or daughter will learn how to leap back into books with the imagination and enthusiasm that was enjoyed when they were little....Come to the Corner and enter a world where the magical kingdoms of your mind come back alive~!
WRITING: Drafting essays can feel daunting and disappointing, especially when the only comments you get from teachers are criticisms....School might seem a bit like a never-ending tunnel of revisions without rewards--but Sandra inspires students to discover a wisdom inside that is authentic and original.
Students who work with Sandra learn that writing is a process of discovery--and that all authors go through many steps to arrive at an organized, expressive, innovative essay. By helping clients to see their ideas of originality clearly, Sandra helps students to develop the confidence to risk new angles of analysis and assert a unique perspective that teachers love!
Sandra's students discover that writing offers a doorway to personal power as they learn to articulate a VOICE that's one-in-a-million: their own.
