English Tutoring for Elementary Students

Thisincludes primary, middle, and intermediate grades, covering kindergarten and grade 1 up to grade 8 language. Support in these early grades provides a solid foundation for the learning that takes place in later years.

Elementary students benefit from educational exercises and engaging games to support the four strands of the language curriculum: reading, writing, oral communication, and media literacy.

Focus and attention is provided in the areas of reading, writing, spelling, grammar, language arts, research and report writing, as well as vocabulary building. Students are equipped with the tools to understand and appreciate a wide range of texts covered in the language curriculum.

English Tutoring for High School Students

This includes intermediate and senior levels from grade 9 to 12 English. Students are required to earn 30 credits to graduate high school in Ontario, including 4 compulsory credits in English (1 credit per grade), as well as passing the Ontario Secondary Literacy Test (OSLT) or successfully completing the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course (OSSLC).

High school students benefit from additional support to understand topics and principles covered in class to prepare for projects and exams, develop written and oral communication skills, as well as critical and creative thinking.

Students find it advantageous to get additional support to understand core concepts related to literary analysis, public speaking, interpreting informational and graphic texts, as well as writing reports, literary and persuasive essays. Mastering these skills are essential to helping students succeed in high school, post-secondary education and beyond.
