Alma Hoffmann, owner of north Raleigh's Write More Educational Resources, says it can take only about five minutes or so to get your child started on the right foot when she brings that big writing assignment home.

I introduced Hoffmann last week. The former teacher has created a series of books and products to help teachers teach kids to write and students to learn the skill. She offers writing programs, camps and workshops for kids in second to eighth grades.

On Wednesdays for two more weeks, she'll be offering tips for parents so they can help their kids improve their writing skills. Hear more from Hoffmann in the video. And check back on the next two Wednesdays for more tips.
