We are thrilled to have our Creative Writing Course reviewed and featured in West London Kids:

West London Kids

“My daughter absolutely loves her creative writing lessons and looks forward to them every week. It’s something she is very passionate about and does like to sit down to finish her stories straight after the lessons, making sure it’s interesting, she has incorporated the new techniques, phrases they have learnt about and she really enjoys going back to her work the day after to edit and improve it. Most weeks she makes time to work on the challenges the tutor had set her. Overall she says the course is really helping her to improve her writing skills, she enjoys the interesting tasks and has learnt quite a few new words, too.”

 

“My daughter attended the 12 week Creative Writing course and thoroughly enjoyed it. Her writing came on tremendously and I love that she saw it as a fun activity to go to rather than what is basically English tuition in small groups. The creative writing text book which goes with the course is great and between that and the course her writing is now a pleasure to read. She loved her course tutor as well and looked forward to going each week. I would highly recommend this course to all children between age 9 and 11 and I will definitely consider sending my son when he is the right age for the course.” (parent)

.

“I’ve been really impressed with Becky, hearing how engaging and energised she is in the lessons and her feedback as been amazing, very specific and detailed and very encouraging. [My daughter] has enjoyed the lessons and I can see how she is starting to think differently about how she writes.” (Helen,  parent)

 

“[My daughter] is very excited about her writing lessons. She’s really enjoying that time and she’s enjoying her writing with new skills. I can see her progress as I am the very first reader of her stories. That’s amazing. I can see how many new words and techniques she has learned.  She also like Becky very much. She is amazing too. Thanks for all she’s doing with the kids. [My daughter] can’t wait for new lessons and I can’t wait for more stories.” (Karolina, parent)

 

“[My son] has really enjoyed the course and says it has been good revision for him. He is engaged in the lessons and he gets good ideas from the other children. He definitely seems more confident and is hitting his stride in time for the 11+ exams! I’ve been in the background when Becky teaches and she is so warm and positive. I don’t know how she does it!” (Jen, parent)

 

“Many thanks for your wonderful course . Today was the last lesson and [my daughter] will miss Becky in the future. Becky is a wonderful teacher . [My daughter] liked her way of teaching the most and always enjoyed every lesson. We are very pleased with her progress and looking forward for some other course in the future.” (Faryal, parent)

 

“I wanted to let you know how thrilled I am at the progress [my son] is making with his writing doing your course. This week he had to complete a piece of writing for school and sat down to it without any meltdown, no fuss and wrote a great piece using all the skills you have taught and was very excited with the result – reading me out various descriptive sentences. Honestly it’s the best result of lock down for me.”(parent)

.

“My daughter is 9 years old and loves creative writing. She did the Bright Light Creative Writing course and absolutely loved it! The course started face to face and then moved online when social distancing measures began and both worked perfectly. The course gently introduces the children to different skills to improve their writing and as the course progresses, the skills are combined and the children begin to write their own stories. My daughter looked forward to her creative writing class each week and grew in confidence as the course progressed. She is able to identify the different techniques writers use to make their stories engaging and imaginative and to use these skills in her own writing. The course is well structured and suitable for all abilities.” (parent)

.

“My daughter has transitioned to the online creative writing lessons easily. The lessons are stimulating and she is always engaged with her learning. The Zoom platform makes it easy for all participants to contribute to the discussions and to share their ideas. Using on screen slides the children can follow the course and can also email their writing to the course tutor to provide further feedback. I highly recommend this creative writing course.” (parent)

“A big thanks to all of you. [My son] was so pleased and excited after his Creative Writing lesson. That was the first time when he was so relaxed and excited since he started taking online classes during lockdown. Thank you so much for your help.” (parent)

.

“My daughter enjoyed so much the creative writing course. The tutor was not only attentive and inspirational to her students but also provides very constructive and useful feedback for students’ homework. I have noticed a significant improvement to my daughter’s writing during and after the completion of the course. I will definitely recommend this course with its brilliant course structure and quality of tutor!” (parent)

.
“Could not be happier with this course, it has helped my son so much with his writing and equipped him with valuable skills and structure. I never saw a course so well designed to help children with their creative writing. My son gained a lot of confidence and felt more inspired week by week. His tutor is incredible, encouraging, clear and a delight to see every Saturday morning. A revolutionary course!”  (parent)
