Say Goodbye to Writing Formulas and Hello to Writing Wednesdays!

I never really focused on my writing and I never felt like my teachers pushed it enough for me to understand how I can improve it. This was probably the first year where I felt like I understood how to write and know what to write. It has changed my outlook on writing and now, I not only feel more confident in my ability as a writer, but I also enjoy it.” Mariam (student testimonial)
