Is your child struggling with English and doesn't understand how it works? Are low grades becoming the new normal? Then read this! Throughout the year of group lessons, our students develop language skills in reading, writing, speaking, and grammar to achieve their full potential and accomplish their academic goals. If you join our classes today, your child will:

  • write paragraphs and essays
  • discuss and deduce text meaning
  • learn vocabulary and idioms in the context of listening, speaking, reading, and writing
  • learn grammatical skills such as parts of speech, capital letters, punctuation, sentences and phrases, direct and indirect objects, subjects and predicates, types of sentences, verbs, passive and active voice, types and uses of pronouns, subject and verb matching, tenses of irregular verbs, repeating sentences, passages, synonyms, antonyms, comparative and superlatives, and much more!
  • check writing for grammatical errors
  • explore units such as poetry, storytelling, nonfiction, and fiction
  • read a variety of texts, analyze them, and answer comprehension questions.

During our lessons, students will learn the elements of fiction used to create a novel. With an understanding of these elements, students will thoroughly analyze, criticize, and write fiction. We will be reading a selection of stories by different authors to explore the point of view, plot, characteristics, setting, symbolism, theme, style, tone, irony, and difference between reliable and unreliable narrative perspectives.

We will also guide students in finding sources for research papers by explaining the difference between scientific and non-scientific sources. This will ensure students can determine which sources are suitable for an academic article. Our class will also look at the difference between primary and secondary sources and discuss how each can effectively research work. Abstracts are critical for presenting original research and creating an article that is not just a book report, so we will also focus on this aspect of research writing. Further, students will learn how to cite the sources in their papers by exploring citation basics and various citation tools.

To effectively communicate an idea, students will work on constructing paragraphs and practice writing descriptions of multiple subjects - for example, art, historical events, and learning processes. Although learning to write a five-paragraph essay can be confusing and frustrating, students will learn to break down each step by working together on an essay in our classroom. We will analyze several theses in class and discuss what makes them strong.
