Current Levels/Courses

Elementary English (Reading/Writing/Spelling)

This portion of ELA will focus on basic reading, writing and linguistic / communication skills. 

Jr High English

Jr High Students will be challenged and asked questions that push them to refer back to what they’ve read. This stresses critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that are required for success in college, career, and life.

High School English

High school ELA students are required to read stories and literature, as well as more complex texts that provide facts and background knowledge in areas such as science and social studies.  Students will then be challenged and asked questions that push them to refer back to what they’ve read.

English 101

English 101 tutors will have a strong focus on high school students taking an Advanced Placement English course and first-year college students.  Primary focus is on the three stages of writing (prewriting, writing, and rewriting); writing essays in various modes; grammar review etc.
