Learning Linkz offers private and group writing classes as well as private sessions devoted to spelling. These are led by Martha Akers Shadle, who has formal training in writing skills, more than 10 years of private tutoring and more than five years of group classes under her belt. Martha's objective is to have students learn paragraph and essay formats and use writing that is indicative of their ideas and vocabulary.
Writing Classes - Group
Martha's writing classes are fun and interactive. She uses the Oreo cookie to help students remember the format of a paragraph and shows weekly videos starring students who review last week’s concepts and preview the session’s topic. Students practice concepts in class and have weekly homework. She holds classes for 2nd to 5th grade and middle school. The classes focus on paragraph and/or essay writing and incorporate grammar, subject/predicate, sentence types and structures, and run-ons and fragments. She offers introductory and intermediate classes. Please see Register Now for classes being offered or complete the Contact Us form if you have questions.
Writing and Spelling - Private Sessions
Martha Akers Shadle offers private writing classes and covers the same concepts as in her group writing classes. The private sessions allow her to work solely on the student’s needs. She also teaches spelling rules using the Orton-Gillingham Approach.
