I work 1:1 with students of all ages, supporting them in the realms of writing and executive functioning. I also support students with high school and college personal statement writing.

My passion is to foster self-confidence in writers. This is very relational work. There's no other way to "get in there" than to be bold, trust, and step into the self. This alone is difficult, but faced with any obstacles along the way, and there are many- difficulty with reading comprehension, organization, clarity, sentence structure, lending depth and detail, to name a few - and writing can feel like a trap! Tapping into joy, scaffolding projects into manageable chunks, and practicing the writing process can free up any style of learner to be curious, confident, independent and process oriented in their approach to writing.

Silver Bell Nursery is a completely outdoor program with days spent in the park and green areas in San Francisco. By choosing to have an outdoor program the children become awakened to their natural surroundings and more in tune with the rhythms of the earth and thus more in tune with their own natural rhythms. Children learn through their senses, from things that they can hear, touch, smell, see, and taste and also through their vestibular system (balance) and proprioceptive system (joints and muscles).

While outdoors, the children learn through exploration using their bodies and senses. They also learn about the natural world around them through songs, poems, rhymes, stories and movement and are nurtured through these daily activities at school. Through oral storytelling, the children develop their imaginations by creating their own inner pictures. This also strengthens their listening skills, memory skills and vocabulary. During the day, we work with the children to teach them how to complete tasks and follow through on directions in order to promote independence and positive self-esteem. Providing guidance to the young child through an understanding of their temperament needs. We try to have a mixed age group, children 2 1/2 to 5 years of age. This age range helps to develop awareness of others who have either mastered or are learning certain skills. This striving together helps promote responsibility, compassion and pride within the group. When working with children during their foundation years, we see it as our responsibility to encourage and prepare them to embrace the challenges in their lives and give them the confidence to over come them.

Writing Tutor, Grades 6 - 12

Lesley Fisher (Parent)

I have been teaching writing extensively for nearly 30 years, in narrative, informative and persuasive formats. I provide scaffolding for brainstorming content, organizing ideas, composing an outline, bridging to writing a rough draft, strategies for revision, and review of editing conventions. This step-by-step process reduces stress and writer' block, allowing the child to relax and focus on one simple task at a time. Best of all, these skills will deepen the student's understanding of the writing process in general, and can be applied to all future assignments.

I can coach and support your child through brainstorming, note-taking, and creating an outline, writing a rough draft, revising and editing with specific attention to syntax and grammar, punctuation and spelling, and overall essay structure. We can work in person at a home or school. I am also available for skype/facetime sessions. I also assist high school seniors in writing college application essays. Colleges are looking for very specific content and style in these essays, and I can provide assistance throughout the process. Please contact me directly for additional information.
