Tutor Doctor offers tutoring for all aspects of English Language Arts: for reading, comprehension, spelling, grammar, handwriting, vocabulary, composition and advanced creative writing.
Elementary students acquire language skills each at a different pace. Some read earlier than others; some early readers do not learn writing skills as quickly as others. Teaching language skills is best when tailored for the individual student’s need. Tutor Doctor is helping many elementary students in Vancouver to read. Whereas some are reading and writing at a level above their grade, most have struggled to keep up with the grade “standard”. Others have a learning difference which we help to overcome.
Regardless of a student’s level of ability in Language Arts, he/she will progress more quickly in other subjects and will have more career options later if Language Arts skills are developed at an early age.
For students who will progress to be successful at a university level, the ability to express themselves clearly in a written English essay is critical. Students who write good essays progress further. So Tutor Doctor emphasizes essay writing as a key skill throughout high school. We believe that the ability to write essays should be introduced earlier in our schools and the standard should be higher. Too many students progress to universities without this key skill, and they struggle later.
This is an ideal subject area to combine with exam preparation and study skills development to ensure rapid progress in high school years.
