“Prachi has been working with my daughter for a few months. She is patient, caring, and makes the student feel comfortable. She is always open to new strategies and goes the extra mile to ensure that she is bringing her all to her tutoring sessions. I would definitely recommend her. My daughter loves writing after working with Prachi.”

“Both our children ( grades 1 and 3) now at NCCS have done Pen Stars for two years. To our surprise, the kids both love this class. And even our son has written stories about sports that are pages long. He loves to read them aloud to his peers with confidence. I give great credit to Pen-Stars for inspiring and creating happy writers, well done!!!”
Mother, New Canaan Country School
“Dear Sushmita and Himani,
Thank you for giving us a Pen-Stars book. I really enjoyed writing in it. I am writing a book already. I really liked it when you read to us. Because of you I am writing a book that is actually more than one page. I hope you come for the lucky third graders next summer. I hope to see you again.

“Pen Stars has been a wonderful addition to my daughters’ after school programming. Prachi and Sushmita have developed a system to make reading and writing fun for both my 5 year old and 8 year old daughters. My daughter’s love of writing and confidence in her writing ability has flourished under Prachi’s guidance and support.”

Join today to become a star, armed with the low-tech magic of simple pen and paper…
Studies have found that the emotional, social and physical development of young children has a direct effect on their overall development and on the adult they will become.
The Pen-Stars™ Creativity Club is a unique program of self-expression and creative learning in several private and public schools, libraries, and community centers.
Children learn in a low-tech space and a nurturing environment where they are able to connect with their true selves. They can feel comfortable expressing themselves since it is a judgement free zone.
Through hands-on and brain-stimulating games and activities, children discover their true talents and abilities which taps into their individual creativity. Activities include: writing, illustrations, arts & crafts, and performances.
Our program helps kids:
Be open to trying new things
Feel empowered to do what they enjoy the most
Build a sense of achievement
Develop their social skills and reduce social anxiety
Learn self-direction by taking the initiative to lead their project
The Pen Stars Program is an afterschool enrichment program in schools, libraries, and learning centers throughout Fairfield County. Our Mission is to leverage children’s creative and literacy skills and help them achieve their full potential.
