How can an AP English Language and Composition tutor help you?
The Advanced Placement (AP) English Language and Composition exam tests a student's mastery of the style, grammar, and rhetoric of the English Language, in addition to the sophistication and rigor with which they can analyze passages of nonfictional prose. Unlike other standardized tests in reading or English you may have taken, the AP English Language exam seeks to measure your ability to succeed in a freshman college writing seminar. Due to the complex analysis of prose required by this course, as well as its emphasis on having a clear, mature writing style, you may consider employing a guide to help you through your AP English Language course and AP exam preparation. Varsity Tutors can help you connect with targeted AP English Language tutoring, designed to address the unique facets of this course.
Your tutor can help you learn to read a text closely, paying attention to the structure of the prose, as well as its content. Bolstering such skills can help you achieve success on the AP English Language exam, as the multiple-choice questions are based on passages that require a nuanced and deep understanding of the author's style, purpose, and audience. Not only can your tutor teach you how to read critically, a tutor can help you learn how to combine active reading with proven test-taking strategies that can give you an edge as you head into your AP English Language and Composition exam. Your tutor ensures that your sessions are focused on the content that you need to learn, rather than information you are strong in, to streamline your tutoring process and use your study periods efficiently.
The tutor you select can also teach you effective essay-writing techniques specifically tailored to the AP English Language and Composition exam writing prompts and grading rubric. Tutors have a wealth of experience in helping students improve their writing, and the AP English Language tutors, in particular, can focus on developing your personal voice through your writing during the course of tutoring. The AP English Language exam requires successful students to write with the prowess of an articulate college freshman while synthesizing evidence from multiple passages or providing evidence to support a thesis statement. A private tutor can help you do just that.
A personal tutor who has the experience and knowledge of your subject can be difficult to come by. That is why you work alongside the Varsity Tutors educational director to create a detailed student profile that displays your schedule, academic needs, personality, and learning style. With these, you can be matched with a tutor, either locally or that you can meet with face-to-face online, that can teach in the way that you learn. During your tutoring sessions, you are free to ask as many questions as you like. Your tutor can tailor the lesson if you master the concept faster than expected, and also if you end up needing a bit more time with it. With a specialized, flexible learning plan, you may be amazed to witness the amount of academic growth that can come from one-on-one teaching and ongoing feedback.
It's easy to get overwhelmed with the amount of work it takes not only to complete the AP English Language and Composition course successfully, but to prepare for its corresponding AP exam as well. Your tutor is dedicated to your success and can patiently guide you toward your academic goals. We want AP English Language tutoring to be a positive part of your week that helps you gain confidence as your test date approaches. Your tutor can cater to your scheduling preferences, making sessions as convenient and hassle free as possible.
