Private Online ESL/ELL Tutoring in Ottawa

If you're interested in an English tutor in Ottawa but aren't sure how to get started, Varsity Tutors can refer you to a private instructor who meets all of your scheduling and academic needs in as little as 24 hours. English is an important subject taught at all levels of the Canadian education system. It allows students to more clearly express themselves through speech and the written word, draw logical inferences from the information they have, and improve their reading comprehension skills. If you or your student could use some help with your English course, reach out to us today for more information on how Ottawa English tutoring could help you.

Students of all ages can benefit from the individualized attention an English tutor in Ottawa can provide. A private instructor is responsible for only one student at a time, so any questions you have can be answered quickly. In fact, some students find it easier to ask an instructor they already trust for assistance than a classroom teacher they may not have the same personal connection with. A private instructor also doesn't need to grade 20 or more papers before returning their pupil's work, allowing for prompt feedback on all completed assignments.

An English tutor in Ottawa can also adapt sessions to cover exactly what a student needs to go over. For example, the average middle school English curriculum consists of learning new vocabulary words, identifying key elements of a novel, and the intricacies of English grammar. If your student already excels in these topics, they can spend their Ottawa English tutoring sessions going over secondary school topics to make study sessions more engaging. Indeed, this freedom to study at your own pace is one of the most important benefits of working with a private instructor.

Common secondary school English topics include comparing and contrasting literary works, composing effective essays, and more advanced English grammar. If you need some help analyzing literature for an assignment at a local school such as Canterbury High School, your instructor can encourage you to make a quick Venn diagram to make it easier to visualize points of commonality and difference. You can also review how to create an outline to make writing assignments feel a little bit less intimidating.

Similarly, English students at schools such as the University of Ottawa are expected to effectively use evidence to support their arguments, properly cite sources, and effectively edit their own work. If you're asked to draw evidence from a dense academic journal, you might want to utilize active reading strategies such as note-taking to help you retain more of the information in each article you plan to use. You can also practice your proofreading skills during Ottawa English tutoring sessions to help you learn how to edit your own work.

Varsity Tutors also makes working with an English tutor in Ottawa as convenient as it can be. We take care of all of the logistics associated with finding you a private instructor who meets your academic and scheduling needs, sparing you the hassle. We also offer a proprietary online classroom called the Live Learning Platform so that you can meet your instructor on your favorite mobile device instead of traveling someplace. Cool features such as video chat functionality ensure that digital study sessions are just as effective as meeting in-person, so you're not sacrificing quality for convenience by studying online. You're also in control over when your sessions take place for maximal flexibility.
