RETAINER OPTION for KINDERGARTEN – 8th GRADE

  • ACADEMIC GUIDANCE
  • WRITING TUTORIAL

ACADEMIC GUIDANCE Retainer Option:

 

EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT

An advising support retainer, designed to compliment the efforts of parents and students who are navigating what has become a disrupted educational process during the time of COVID-19.

Pre-COVID educational expectations for students: pay enough attention in class, complete homework, commensurately compensated with good grades and college admissions, graduating into prosperity—where parents intervened rarely—are being challenged

Since March 2020, parents and students are bereft of essential information, and even a familiar school structure from which they can devise and execute an effective academic plan

When families retain Creative Marbles experts: 

√ Parents and students gain on-demand access to advisors, as well as timely, forward-looking guidance, tailored to each family’s specific educational needs.

√ Parents learn how to transform partnerships with teacher(s) to best support their students’ effort to learn from home. 

√ Students learn how to manage a digitalized educational process.

√ Students gain a sounding board to better direct their learning process to gain greater confidence in one’s inherent ability.

√ Families can either define or revise college admissions strategies, utilizing our nationwide network of university staff to support students’ higher education goals.

WRITING TUTORIAL Retainer Option:

 

WRITING TUTORIAL

To write, to express, is essential for beings to thrive, not just survive. Although in school they teach many ideas and skills, writing is seldom one of them. Many students write to survive academically, seeking to emulate the teacher's voice in order to meet the standards necessary to achieve the desperately sought after grade

Many students, although they learn to play the academic grade game, often lose their unique writing voice in the process and by default, the ability to seek truth and understanding. Some students unable to write in their authentic voice begin to suffer academically, becoming even more misunderstood as a result. 

We have been teaching writing and playing the role of editors for over twenty years and can help any aged student improve their written communication not only for academic assignments, creative writing, college or graduate school applications, but also so they can (re)discover their genuine sense of self, the internal compass that guides us all.    

We teach students the magic of the writing process which they can adapt to any type of writing they choose or are assigned, and through guided practice, learn how to format their writing in order to effectively convey their ideas. 

Additionally, parents gain detailed and expert educational insight about their student’s written communication, as well as recommendations to support their student in regaining confidence in their writing ability. 

To write is a gift that should not be wasted, set aside because tedium inherent in academia has consumed the student’s willingness to express their most intimate thoughts, feelings and desires, secrets of the soul essential to be exposed so as to guide their choices, enrich their understanding of the world, in the quest for peace of mind they were born to find.
