A perfect blend of academic and creative curriculum across all areas of English Language Literacy and Enrichment.
This PSAT prep workshop is intended for students in Grades 7 – 10. Depending on the grade that your student is in or will be going to, he/she will be required a state mandated PSAT test. This could be PSAT 8 , PSAT 9/10 , and PSAT/NMSQT.
While all the PSAT tests cover more or less the same concepts and similar kinds of question types for the Reading and Writing sections, the number of questions, the time required to complete the test, and the complexity of the reading material and questions varies (increases) for the various grades.
Schools that administer the PSAT 8 (during Oct of eighth grade typically) will use the scores (typically arrives in Dec) for placing the students in the various Honors level classes in high school, so it is in the best interest of the student to secure a good score in this test.
PSAT 9 & 10 (usually administered in the spring of grades 9 and 10) is used as a practice test for the SAT and usually provides a good estimate of how the student will score in the SAT
PSAT/NMSQT (administered in the fall of junior year) is an important one which allows a student to compete nationally for a National Merit Scholarship and a good score on the PSAT/NMSQT is an important pre-requisite for the same. (We recommend students preparing for the PSAT/NMSQT to enroll for the SAT Prep course since the content and rigor of both the programs are exactly the same, although the students will get an opportunity to test with official PSAT/NMSQT tests as part of their prep.)
“Our daughter did the writer’s workshop, a grammar/vocabulary workshop and then the PSAT workshop with Learn To Write Now. We are happy to report that she was one of the National Merit Scholarship finalists during her senior year and we look forward to enrolling our son for this program too.”— Happy Parents
At Learn To Write Now, we believe that learning through writing helps students...
LTWN’s motto is Write. Learn. Succeed and our overarching goal is…
“For every inspiration…every journey to begin…there has to be a starting point. And that starting point for us is our recent workshop with "learntowritenow". Ms. Aruna Davis….you have been the road marker for this beginning, your expectations have set the goal, your energy has fueled the enthusiasm and your faith has set the belief that he can be a writer. You have given him wings to fly into regions of poetry and prose and haikus and illustrated pieces. Now I know every workshop he attends will just be a step up. We can’t wait to explore more of the lengths and breadths of writing with you.” — Tara D.
“My husband and I would like to thank you for the wonderful writing program you are providing. We knew our daughter who was always interested in writing will do very well, but we were doubtful about our son who pretty much hated any writing tasks. However, we were so pleased to see how you understood each of our children’s strengths and weaknesses and coached them accordingly. Although Varun resisted the program and the weekly writing tasks initially, we saw that he was more willing after the first few weeks. During a conference, his class teacher specifically pointed to some of his writing samples and said that she has seen a remarkable improvement in his writing work. We are also thrilled to share that he got accepted into PA Reading for Middle School and we thank you so much for all the special guidance you provided us for that. Our kids are really fortunate to have you as their writing teacher and we hope they will continue to keep writing well.” — Lakshmi V.R.
“I wanted to take a quick moment to extend my sincere thank you for helping Sneha with her SAT prep and making her confident to take the June 2nd SAT. I still remember the exact conversation I had with you last December discussing about her situation in spite of her taking SAT prep classes with a different program where she hardly learned anything and did not see any improvement in score and how it affected her overall confidence about SAT in general. Although she came to you only for a group class, I could see how invested you were with her individual performance and practice week after week pointing all her strength and weak areas, so she was able to understand all the strategies and improve her test scores dramatically. I also wanted to point out that the SAT resources you have put together for class, home, and online practices are beyond par and it gives a whole 360 preparation for any student. It is for the same reason I have referred both my neighbors to your program and I hope their kids have the same experience similar to Sneha’s. A very sincere thank you again!” — Shoba P.
“Thanks so much, Mrs. Davis for helping my son with his college admission essays. He was quite nervous and so were we before the start of the application process, but your immense help and guidance on the admission essays truly brought out the best in our son and his writing.” — Jaya T.
“Thanks, Aruna for your dedication and enthusiasm for this program. I have seen incredible changes in my son’s vocab and creativity. This course was clearly a difference maker. Not sure how you do it….but wanted to say “HATS OFF”! ” — Lakshmi P.
“The workshop helped my son recognize the writing process and got him into thinking about what it is to plan a composition. It also exposed him to a couple different writing styles and served as a good introductory course. We are hoping for him to engage more actively, consciously and willingly in this process. Thank you for your sincere efforts and encouragement in this direction. Overall the course content was very well-prepared and quite interesting. There was a tremendous opportunity provided to work at home which was great – although we know we probably did not make the most of what we could during this session.” — Radhika.
“Aruna, I remember enrolling my son in your Session 1 workshop with so much uncertainty. I wasn’t sure how you were going to make such a reluctant writer into someone who could write a few sentences or a paragraph. I am completely thrilled to admit that you have made a writer out of my son, and I can’t believe that he has written 3 full composition books in just two sessions. Looking forward to your future workshops.” — Pallavi
“Thanks, Aruna… your periodic resources for parents always help me and encourage me. My son had a great time in your class and learned a lot. Looking forward to attending more writing camps with Learn To Write Now in future where learning seems fun and easy.” — Sirisha
”Mrs. Davis, I am so happy I learned how to write so many different kinds of poems in the workshop and one of my poems is featured on the Facebook page. Thank You!”— Anonymous

”Thanks for your thoughtful feedback to all the essays. Although I can see that my son is frustrated to see so many suggested edits on his essays, I can tell he is getting better as a writer and gaining more confidence in his school work too. Please let us know how we can continue to keep him encouraged at home.”
”Aruna, I am so glad that I enrolled my kids in the writer’s workshop this summer. Hands down, this is the best program they have done this whole year. And thank you for the handwritten father’s day letter from my kids. It is now a family keepsake.”— Anonymous
”Mrs. Davis, I am always waiting to see what comment you write in my journal for each of my journal entry. I can’t believe you have so many stickers. He is doing his writing work on a daily basis and I have never seen this before. I am very surprised to see him like this.”
”Aruna, thank you for the performance report and everything. I think the classes provided great value to my kids. I am really hoping you can do a one on one session with my daughter this year if possible and I have my fingers crossed for that.”
”Mrs. Davis, I really liked the Olympic week. I like the synchronized sentence swimming and word wrestling a lot.”— Anonymous
”The seven-day journal prompter” is such a creative idea. My kids didn’t miss a day of journal writing. I personally liked the way you handled grammar in such a fun & engaging way. This is a fantastic performance report. I am happy for my daughter. I am very impressed with the details that you have captured. Do keep us informed on the next sessions.”
”My older son loved the first session and wanted to continue session II, I also wanted my younger one to join the second session. I already mentioned your sessions to a couple of my friends and will try to forward it others who are interested.”
”Thanks so much for the detailed performance report. Your insights are absolutely right on and are very helpful in planning next steps for both my kids! They had fun in the workshop and it gave them a structure to their day. Very nicely done, I will definitely enroll them back.”— Anonymous
“Mrs.Davis, My wife and I sincerely appreciate your efforts in helping my daughter publish her first short story. Your insights into the plot and overall content were very helpful and it helped fulfill her dream to be a published author by this summer.”
”Actually, I was so impressed by my daughter’s reaction last night. Not only she said she loves this class, but also she couldn’t stop writing. She started to give some means to the words, even started to use an electronic dictionary which we bought months ago for her. Hope she would keep her enthusiasm and have fun with writing.”— Anonymous
