This is an interactive, introductory IEW based class geared towards middle and upper elementary level students. In this class, students will focus on brainstorming, note taking and writing both fiction and nonfiction pieces. Writing structures will include: summarizing nonfiction, narrative summaries, beginning story writing using narrative summaries, beginning report writing, writing from pictures, and beginning essay writing. Simultaneously, students will also learn how to implement various stylistic techniques to increase description, as well as remove “banned words” (overused, boring words) from their writing.

Each week, Eva will review past lessons to encourage mastery. Parents are encouraged to actively participate in the homework process. Scribing for your child is acceptable (however, don’t change their words!).

Students are encouraged to repeat this class twice. The first year tends to be overwhelming, and in most cases the second year is when their internal “light bulbs switch on” and writing happens!

Please note this section is a larger class.  Jonathan Meola offers a smaller group version of this class.

Homework is approximately two hours per week (30 minutes daily).

NOTE: Registration deadline is September 15, 2021.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.

A blessing to our family!

Open Tent Academy has been such a blessing to my family!
My 9th grader enrolled in a year-long Writing course, All About Essays, this year with Ms. Eva and has thoroughly enjoyed the class. His writing has improved ten-fold! We couldn’t be more pleased.
This spring, his sisters have joined him, taking Starting IEW From the Very Beginning and Profiles of History. Both girls love their classes and look forward to each week.
All three of my children have learned so much!
Thank you, OTA!

Much more than just a business - you've changed my son's life and future!

If it wasn’t for Eva’s Writing Classes, which my son has taken for the last five years, J would, without a doubt, not be where he is today. The graduation speech as salutatorian that he wrote is a direct result of your teachings.
I thank God every time he tackles a paper. He uses every skill he has learned from your classes. Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
I know it is a business you run, but it is much more than that. You have truly changed my son’s life and future.

Making the rules of writing so easy!

In middle and high school, I took IEW writing classes with Mrs. Goldstein. Her teaching style and passion for the material made learning the techniques and rules of writing so easy. Today, as I am preparing to graduate from George Mason University, I still apply what I learned from Mrs. Goldstein in every paper I write. I’m so thankful I took her classes many years ago, because it has truly helped me succeed in my current academics!

Responsive and Meaningful

Eva is a very experienced teacher who does not just ‘grade papers’ writing papers but gives meaningful feedback that helps the student learn and improve. She is very responsive by email. The learning management system used by OTA (called CANVAS) is very user friendly and easy to navigate. Eva is kind, reasonable, and has the students’ best interest at heart.
Please – do not miss out on Eva Goldstein-Meola’s IEW Writing classes – you will regret it!

Truly a gift...

I hesitated long and hard about Open Tent Academy and my only regret is not trying it sooner. Both of my kiddos are taking math and writing classes. These classes are truly a gift. Ms. Eva’s IEW Writing Classes and literature are out of this world. Eva might be a tough writing teacher; however, she is fair and loves the children and her work. I couldn’t be more pleased with OTA and plan on having my children take classes for years to come!
