Discover the power of the written word

I love reading along with my students’ English class homework. Whether it’s To Kill a Mockingbird or Crime and Punishment, I get to help them understand and draw real meaning from literature – which gives them a huge advantage going into college.

Our approach to English & Literature Tutoring

Evaluate reading and study habits

English and Literature classes can amplify reading issues and poor study habits. If your child is falling behind on their reading assignments, we will assess their reading skills and reading speed, and work to develop stronger organization and study skills. Reading faster can mean hours of time saved on homework assignments – in high school, and especially in college.

Develop a 2 track mind

When reading a passage, you perceive the letter forms, you recognize words and phrases, and your mind constructs the concept of what happened. Understanding what happened is the base level of reading comprehension. Understanding what the passage is about, what it really means, is an important distinction to learn. Our Professional Tutors will help your child to develop a higher level of critical reading, while optimizing reading efficiency and speed.

Find their voice

Writing clearly and persuasively is a skill that will benefit your child throughout their life. A Professional Tutor can help your child develop an argument for a term paper, craft a winning college essay, and most of all find a tone and voice that is all their own. The ability to write well is the ability to communicate well.
