English/Language Arts

Mastering English/language arts is a fundamental aspect of academic achievement and a critical part of any student’s education. Academic Approach is here to support your student in developing their reading comprehension, writing skills, vocabulary, and understanding of grammar, thereby improving their overall literacy and communication skills.

Our Approach

Whether your student is in middle school and learning foundational literacy skills, or in high school and engaging with advanced literature, our tutors help students enhance their reading comprehension, writing skills, vocabulary, and grammar, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of the English language and literature.

Academic Approach’s English/language arts tutoring goes beyond simple content knowledge; it’s about cultivating an appreciation for the power of language and literature. Our tutors focus on building critical reading and writing skills, aiding students in interpreting and analyzing diverse texts, constructing persuasive arguments, and effectively communicating ideas.

Our tutoring aids students in making meaningful connections between what they read and write in the classroom and the world around them. With a better grasp of English, students can improve their performance in standardized tests, essays, presentations, and more.

Tailored to Individual Needs

Academic tutoring, even more so than standardized test preparation, is driven by the student. Before beginning an English/language arts academic tutoring program, our instructors will try to find out:

Your student's course syllabus, including any important test deadlines
The textbook(s) your student is using. We make sure that our tutors have access to the same textbook from which your student is working
How your student feels about the class and their teacher. What do they like, and why? What do they dislike, and why? What topics are most and least interesting to them? What assignments have been the easiest or most challenging for them? 

Don’t worry if you (or your student) don’t know the answers to these questions. Our instructors are well-versed in the material they teach, how to read students, and how to determine the best place to start. That said, the more information you and your student can provide about the English class, the better.
