Our tailored writing tutoring services cater to students across all levels, and our coaches will accompany you and your family throughout your student’s academic career.

Hewes House offers a rare blend of knowledge, wit, resourcefulness, flexibility, and exigence. We came asking if they could teach my reticent 8th grader “to write.” With this nebulous instruction they have – somehow – created a year’s instruction covering not just how to write and revise, but how to read, ponder, research, think, plan, and surge forth into new and intimidating territory, whatever that may be. Five stars!

Thank you Hewes House for all your help and ongoing support for our two children, currently in middle school. It’s been a huge success having you work closely with both of the children, and we are seeing the results in their school grades. In addition to the regular sessions, we had our coach work with our son on high school testing prep, which also contributed to amazing results. Thank you for all that you do, we appreciate it!

I’ve had an excellent experience with Hewes House. My high school daughter has worked with her coach for multiple years on creative writing. Not only has the coach improved my daughter’s writing but she’s instilled a love of writing and creating stories. The coach has been wonderful in establishing a rapport with my daughter and motivating her to write. I appreciate the time and effort the coach has invested in tailoring the coaching to fit her needs and interests. A valuable coaching experience!
