English tutoring can enhance your student’s understanding of grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing.

An excellent English tutor will be able to help your student by reinforcing the concepts listed below.
Common English courses and concepts
This component of English includes the 8 common parts of speech (nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections) and how they interact with each other in relation to comprehension and writing. Grammar can also focus on punctuation rules for sentence endings, commas, semicolons, quotation marks, and capitalizations. Basic grammar rules are usually introduced in grades 2-5; but advanced grammar rules and usage is taught in middle school and high school.
This component of English includes the study of the meaning of words. Areas of focus in grade school may include concepts such as synonyms, antonyms, homonyms, prefixes, suffixes, and compound words. In middle school and high school, students usually study Latin and Greek roots to enhance their overall understanding of language and meaning. Analogies are often taught at this level to show relationships between words and meanings.
This component of English begins with phonics and decoding of words for basic reading literacy. In grades 2-5, students will learn to read paragraphs, passages, chapters, and books for understanding and analysis. Concepts such as character comparisons, main ideas with supporting details, cause and effect, order of events, genres, and inference are introduced at this age. In middle school and high school, students will study literature from different cultures and time periods and read for understanding and analysis. Courses may include: American Literature, British Literature, Poetry, and Modern Literature. Students will often read and analyze classic books and written works from famous authors from different time periods.
This component of English is the most advanced as its applications include the incorporation of the other English components – grammar, vocabulary, and comprehension. In Kindergarten – 2nd grade, students focus on developing basic sentences, paragraph indentation and development. Grades 3-5 will usually focus on writing techniques such as comparison/contrast, main idea with supporting details, introduction/conclusion paragraphs, and summarizations of passages or books. In middle school and high school, students will learn outlining, parallelism, paraphrasing, citations, argumentation and support, and thesis development.
Applications and Career Opportunities with English
Literacy strength greatly affects most areas of daily life from online reading to resume writing. However, some professions heavily rely on English and writing. Students with a high level of mastery in these areas may excel in a profession as a: journalist, script writer, English or Literature teacher, editor, author, curriculum developer, librarian, lawyer, paralegal, or psychologist.
