Advanced Writing Lab
Advanced Writing Lab
Advanced Writing Lab is designed for students who have mastered Writing Lab or Literacy Lab, or already possess high reading and writing skills. Our unique curriculum gives high-achieving students the tools needed to maximize potential, and to increase levels of proficiency in writing.
In Lab, students critically analyze a variety of advanced texts with corresponding essay prompts. Students also engage in independent practice, guided by an expert teacher’s valuable, immediate feedback.
With increased confidence, proficiency and experience, our Advanced Writing students advance in the classroom, and achieve higher scores on college admissions exams.
At Advanced Writing Lab, we give students the right tools to become top writers. Our expert teachers guide students with key strategies, proven materials, and clear objectives to lead them to success.
We teach students expert strategies, skills and techniques to efficiently develop a high-scoring essay within time constraints.
All students are taught by dedicated teachers with professional degrees and extensive training in MEK Lab methods.
Students learn to craft a five-paragraph response to a text within time constraints, giving them an edge in English class and on future admission exams.
Students are given detailed brainstorming sheets, which lay out how best to organize a literary analysis essay effectively, logically and powerfully.
We offer prompts that are specific to a child’s goals and needs, spanning a variety of genres, including non-fiction and poetry, as well as examples from admissions tests like ISEE, SSAT, BCA and the SAT.
Our teachers provide reference materials for students to deepen understanding on key aspects of advanced writing, from annotations to figurative language.

I got into Princeton! I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you for all the hard work done on your part and the constant support I received. I would not be here had you guys not believed in me.
“With your professional and kind guidance, our son received a very high score in the writing part of the PARCC test. He has improved significantly since taking classes at MEK.”
Although it was an intensive program and it took up most of my summer, my improvements are clear, and I’m much more confident going in and taking the test than I was before the program.
Our Advanced Writing Lab session lasts 60 minutes total, efficiently and expertly guiding students through each stage of hands-on learning.
