As an educator and mother of two, MJ Gleichman brings over 30 years of experience developing curriculum and teaching students to think, write, and speak critically. MJ holds a Masters degree in Curriculum and has dedicated her career to helping students of all backgrounds and abilities become effective, articulate communicators.

While homeschooling her own children, MJ discovered that the most challenging and time-intensive subject to teach was writing. She researched a variety of curriculum options and  was surprised by the lack of high-quality, engaging writing programs - especially those designed for the reluctant writer.

Recognizing this gap, MJ began to offer writing classes using her own systematic, practice-based method. Her students saw such clear improvements that their teachers began commenting on the superior quality of their work. Many improved their grades in English Language Arts by 1-2 levels. The word spread quickly and within one year, MJ’s writing program grew to over 150 students. Today, MJ’s classes are highly sought out by both parents and students themselves.

Because of this success, MJ’s dream is to bring her teaching methodology to as many students as possible through Writing Symphony.
