Core

As part of the EWC's English Enhancement Pack, we offer 8 classes divided into 4 different levels.

Writing is not easy to teach: it is so personal to every student. We want to change the way writing is taught by providing students by focusing on the FOUNDATIONS:

  1. Learning How to Read & Engagement

  2. Making Sentences "Pop" & Applied Grammar

  3. Building Paragraphs & Logical Connections

  4. Constructing Cohesive Pieces of Writing

What is the minimum age for core?
The suggested age for participation is 4th grade and above; however, we recommend taking our placement test for a more tailored assessment.

What reading materials are included in the Core program?

You can find detailed information about reading materials on our website.

 

How do I find an appropriate level for my child?

We recommend that your child take the Core placement test for an accurate placement.

Do you provide discounts for siblings or multiple family members participating in the program?

We provide a sibling discount applicable only to our full-priced offerings. It cannot be combined with any other promotions.

What happens if my child misses a class?

If your child misses a group lesson, they can access the lesson materials and recordings available on our Notebook Learning Platform to catch up on the missed content.


What background do your instructors have?

Our team of instructors is comprised of graduates from top 25 colleges with extensive experience. Approximately 80% of our instructors have graduated from an Ivy League school.

Having just finished up my freshman year, I am delighted to announce that English II was a breeze thanks to you. After taking all the different levels of EWC, I gained the confidence to take the exam to skip a grade in English the very same year I took your classes
“In school, I just read a passage and answer multiple choices ... at EWC, we do more reading, annotating, and writing. We learn how to make it stronger using conjunctions, clauses, and more. We then learn how to use these methods in our writing."
