American Literature Tutoring FAQ

Drawing on your knowledge of numerous historical events, poetic forms, and literary genres that span several centuries may be difficult. As it concentrates on all of the aforementioned ideas in the context of poetry, prose, drama, and essays, American literature can be an overwhelming subject to face altogether. But first, what is American literature, exactly? American literature is the literature written or produced in the area of the United States and its preceding colonies. Whether you are preparing for an Advanced Placement exam or feeling apprehensive about a college seminar, Varsity Tutors can help you connect with an able and brilliant American literature instructor. These professional tutors can efficiently help you to make sense of the literary elements that confuse you by providing exceptional one-on-one tutoring.

The names Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, Herman Melville, Henry David Thoreau, and Ralph Waldo Emerson may all sound familiar. These men and women are just a few of the greatest authors and poets of all time, and the key people who have significantly impacted American literature. Their work can be seen in today's classrooms and is often worked into today's curriculum. Certainly, these are some of the public figures that you may be expected to analyze in an American literature class. Each author or poet brings to bear different experiences and historical perspectives with his or her works, which pose distinct challenges to readers. Whether you are having a hard time making sense of Henry David Thoreau's contemplative essays, Emily Dickinson's concise poems, Herman Melville's compelling novels, Edgar Allan Poe's mysterious tales, or Nathaniel Hawthorne's dense short stories, an experienced tutor can provide feedback and guidance. Each tutor's instruction is tailored to the specific aspects of American literature with which you struggle.

Recent American Literature Tutoring Session Notes

Online American Literature Tutoring review by Jessica
The student and I edited an essay that she had started to write. The essay is an opinion piece on genomes that she based off of several articles provided in class. We re-worked the copy to better organize her writing and convey the argument that she was making. The student understood how to finish the essay. I'm certain that she will receive a good grade on the essay, and I hope that she feels more confident in her writing skills as we continue to work together.

Online American Literature Tutoring review by Cameron
Today, the student and I continued our work on a homework packet covering clauses, complex or compound sentences, and punctuation. The student continues to grasp new English concepts easily, and in our hour and a half, we finished nearly the entire packet. As part of the assignment was to supply proper punctuation for some of the sentences, we also took this opportunity to discuss the proper use of punctuation when separating independent clauses, including semi-colons, hyphens, and comma/conjunctions.

The student and I worked on his reading comprehension with story and poem worksheets. We also talked about his previous math test and the struggles he faced with the problems. I discovered that he struggles with some of the word problems of his math units and deciding where to start. We will try to begin working on how to conquer math problems and what steps to make first, no matter what the questions are asking.

During this session we focused on studying the student's vocabulary words. My goal was to teach him different ways to study his words. We talked about the words and their definitions, we made stories up to put the words into context. I also made him use the words in different forms, such as nouns, adverbs, etc. We also came up with a detailed study plan for the week.

Online American Literature Tutoring review by Jon
We worked on an assignment due on 11/14: writing a paragraph answering questions about Flannery O'Connor's short story "The Life You Save May Be Your Own." The student said they read the story in class. We read it together and I asked her questions about the plot, characters, imagery and symbolism. She started working on her assignment just before the end of our session.
