• Grasping Rhetorical Devices

    It can be challenging to understand and identify various rhetorical devices and techniques authors use. At our tutoring service, we use engaging lessons and ample practice exercises to help students comprehend and recognize these devices in various forms of prose.

  • Writing Effective Essays

    Many students struggle with structuring their thoughts and presenting persuasive arguments in their essays. We provide targeted guidance on essay organization, clarity, and the use of compelling evidence. We also offer practice with real AP test prompts to enhance their argumentative writing skills.

  • Understanding Complex Texts

    AP level texts can be complex and intimidating. We use close reading strategies and guided discussions to help students break down these texts, understand their context, and appreciate their depth.

  • Applying Grammar Rules

    Even proficient English students can sometimes falter with advanced grammar rules and their application in writing. We provide comprehensive grammar lessons and corrective feedback to solidify their understanding and application of grammar in their writing.

  • Analyzing Purpose and Tone

    It can be difficult for students to determine an author's intention, tone, or point of view. We conduct focused exercises and in-depth text analyses to develop these critical reading skills.

  • Time Management During Exams

    AP exams are timed, and students often struggle to complete the test in the allotted time. We conduct mock tests under real test conditions to help students pace themselves and develop effective test-taking strategies.

  • In-depth Text Analysis

    We don't just read the text; we dissect it. This involves studying the author's purpose, tone, and stylistic choices, as well as discussing rhetorical devices and their effects. We frequently use Socratic questioning to encourage independent thinking.

  • Rhetorical Device Practice

    To help students become familiar with various rhetorical devices, we use sample passages for identification and analysis practice. We then discuss how these devices contribute to the overall message of the passage.

  • Argumentative Writing Exercises

    To enhance argumentative writing skills, we provide students with a variety of prompts and guide them through structuring a strong, evidence-based argument. This helps them learn to develop a thesis, use persuasive rhetoric, and structure a cohesive essay.

  • Grammar Mastery

    Proficiency in grammar is essential for effective communication in writing. We use targeted exercises to reinforce complex grammar rules and their application in writing.

    We believe in diversifying our teaching methods. This includes using video and audio resources to complement textual learning and to provide varied perspectives on the topics at hand.
