Quills and Quotes graduates persuasive writers, confident speakers, and critical thinkers. We give students an academic advantage with enrichment classes in essay writing, public speaking, vocabulary development, literary analysis, and reading comprehension.

What makes us unique? Our specialized teachers provide detailed, weekly feedback, we give students extensive writing resources, and we offer online office hours for extra support.

The after-school program is a 30-week after-school course for students in grades 4-10. A free online assessment is used to determine the course level for new students. 

The Writing Curriculum: Students learn to research topics, critically analyze information, and generate essays that stimulate, engage, and persuade. The finished essay has an engaging introduction, a memorable conclusion, and a body of strong supporting ideas. Students learn to edit and proofread for sentence structure, grammar, and punctuation. Additionally, students complete weekly vocabulary and reading comprehension exercises. By the end of the year, our students can write powerful essays and have an advanced vocabulary.

The Public Speaking Curriculum: Students master communication and speech delivery. They are taught how to use effective body language, project their voice, and engage the audience. Plus, they learn how to compose a speech with proven speech writing techniques. They practice public speaking in various forums including formal and impromptu speeches, slide presentations, debates, soapbox rants, and mock interviews. By the end of the program, our students have the skills and confidence to speak deliver a QUILL Talk (our version of a TED Talk) with passion and polish.

Our Teachers

We have carefully selected teachers who specialize in English and with expertise in public speaking. They have classroom and online experience and know how to inspire students. Our teachers know that students learn best when taught material in a variety of ways. We reinforce knowledge through engaging visual aids, class discussions, debates, writing resources, sample essays, quizzes, and more. Our teachers are committed to ensuring each student’s success and are available for extra help or even one-on-one tutoring if needed.

Our Students

We are proud of our students. They genuinely love coming to class and participate with enthusiasm. Our greatest moments come when we see our students succeed – when they conquer their public speaking anxiety, win class speech competitions, enter international writing contests, create blogs and podcasts, write short stories, and proudly show us their report cards – those moments are awesome.
