How can a AP English Literature and Composition tutor help you?
The AP English Literature and Composition exam is one of the most difficult exams on which to achieve a perfect 5. Not only do you have to be well versed in the traditional canon of English literature, covering everything from Chaucer to Fitzgerald, but you have to be ready to tackle both essay and multiple-choice questions that test your ability to recall, interpret, and expand upon key concepts, themes, motifs, and character traits. Although you may already be enrolled in an AP English Literature class at school, preparing for the AP English Literature exam with a private tutor could further help you boost that score toward a coveted 5.
Varsity Tutors helps you select a tutor based on your unique student profile, which accounts for your specific difficulties, strengths, learning habits, and concerns about the exam. Your instructor can help you become familiar with the types of multiple-choice questions on the AP English Literature exam, gaining the ability to answer with accuracy and speed. Each tutor has extensive experience in teaching effective test-taking strategies that are tailored to the AP English Literature exam. They have aced the exam, and regularly use the skills they gained through AP English and Literature. These tutors have hands-on experience that you can't get through a textbook.
Your personal tutor can help you learn how to actively read a passage while highlighting the most important concepts and identifying material that is likely to show up in the questions. You will also learn how to eliminate nonsense answers, how to find evidence that supports an idea in a passage, and how to select the correct answer choice in the most efficient manner, ensuring you do not run out of time on test day. You can even set goals with your tutor on your time limit, such as making sure that you have ample time remaining for the written or multiple-choice sections, depending on the one that you are the most challenged by.
AP English Literature tutoring can also help you prepare for the essay portion of the test by teaching you proven essay-writing techniques, adjusted to your own unique writing style. Your tutor can teach you how to draw upon material from books that you have already read in order to answer the essay prompts effectively. You can also learn how to successfully plan out an essay in just a few minutes, as well as how to execute that essay in a coherent and concise way within the given time constraints.
