The BRWI Difference
Our highest goal is to bring back the JOY of reading and writing to children. We specialize in transforming the stress of learning to read and write into something the student genuinely enjoys. Not only are we experts in all the current trends and contemporary methods of teaching reading and writing, but, more importantly, we know how to use those teaching methods to help any student develop a genuine and unique joy for reading and writing. Everyone has different likes and dislikes. Our curriculum can translate your child’s unique likes into the reading and writing process. Our two hour sessions have a warm, welcoming and comfortable setting. By ensuring that the students have the same teacher and the same group of two to four students at every session, a real bond and trust is developed between the students and teacher. Students feel at ease to be themselves, make mistakes and ask questions.
The Joy of Reading
This begins with captivating student interest through unique and thought provoking stories. Each story we read is hand-picked, reviewed and read by all the BRWI Instructors before being added into the curriculum. Written by our favorite authors who have their own unique style of writing, these stories have a suspense-driven plot, multi-dimensional characters and universal themes that will prompt students to think, respond and question what they read.
The Joy of Writing
We give students the opportunity for creative writing, something that does not happen enough in schools today. At BRWI, students write a variety of creative pieces such as fantasy fiction stories, mysteries, science fiction stories, autobiographies, reflective essays, poems or descriptive summaries. At BRWI, we want to pique students’ imagination and show them that they can be good writers. We teach them the power and the fun of choosing words to create tone and certain moods. We teach them how to incorporate a variety of sentence structures as a way of changing the pace and feeling of the story. We teach them the power of dialogue and how it can be a great way to cut through long narratives and make writing flow more easily and dynamically. We teach them to use figurative language as a way to create mental pictures for their reader and to emphasize important parts of their stories. We teach them to add Soda Pop, Pop!—the twists and turns of a story that leave the reader waiting to find out what will happen next.
Our reading and writing tutors specialize in teaching the JOY of reading and writing to students in preschool through 12th grade. We also have a homeschool program. Visit us online at www.brwi.org for more information.
