Need help with SAT essay formation, i.e. thesis statements, topic sentences, cohesiveness and expanding vocabulary. Grades are 8th and 11th. 11th grader is preparing for the Oct PSAT and 8th grader is struggling with writing in general, but mainly synthesizing AP World History DBQs. Both are math/science-leaning students and will probably need writing support throughout college, but we will cross that bridge when we get there. For now, I would like them to be in a somewhat progressive-type of writing help, where they can start out on an easy platform, then increase in difficulty. Their homework load is extremely heavy, so they will not be able to practice during the week-only on weekends. I am willing to increase the duration of the sessions to two hrs if needed. I am also okay with virtual sessions, as well as during school breaks. Hopefully, they can be tutored together. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
