The first thing that most people think of when they think of English class is some old smelly novel that teachers swears was written in English but the student just can't seem to quite understand. English class, however, also includes many varied disciplines including reading comprehension and learning how to write. The fact that English class is made up of many smaller disciplines is what gives many students problems and causes difficulties leading to the need for an English tutor. This can be especially true for students who do not speak English as their first language.
A good English tutor can help your child by allowing him to work at his own pace while teaching him the skills necessary for successful completion of the class as well as skills that are needed in everyday life. If your child talks about how much they hate English class or you notice that you never see them reading anything then it is probably time to start considering getting them an English tutor.
Writing assignments give many students problems when they get to high school because it something new that they must tackle, the ability to express themselves in the written word rather than verbally. An English tutor is also an excellent choice if your child is attempting to overcome a learning disability such as dyslexia. The skills that a good tutor will teach your child for English class will also carry over into other classes as almost every class will at some point involve writing a report. The varied skills taught by an English tutor will provide an outstanding foundation on which to build a growing love of learning.
