Getting into Grammar
The Getting into Grammar tutoring program is designed for students who want to enhance their writing skills by learning and understanding the basic building blocks of grammar. Students examine the eight parts of speech and how they function in a sentence. Students learn sentence types, sentence structures, and sentence patterns and then use words, phrases, and clauses to build increasingly complex sentences.
Writing an Essay
Our academic coaches teach students how to enhance their writing skills, better organize paragraphs and essays, and improve editing skills. During these tutoring sessions, students examine the elements of a five-paragraph essay and practice writing both the parts and the whole. We also provide students a template to make just about any writing assignment easier to tackle.
Along the way, students will examine sticky grammar problems that weaken writing and learn to develop their voice to strengthen these problems.
Our persuasive writing tutoring introduces students to the basics of persuasive writing. Critical to success in high school, college, and beyond, we cover how to narrow down interest in any topic to a convincing, defendable argument. We consider how to effectively target different audiences, conduct academic research, organize and defend original arguments, correct citation practices, and revise an essay.
Our persuasive writing tutoring is hands-on and students complete several short assignments to refine these critical skills.
