Proven High School English Help For All Levels

High school English is somewhat of a catch-all subject, as students study grammatical rules, writing, and literary analysis. Thankfully, a high school English tutor can help you with all of these areas.

If you struggle to differentiate between conjunctions and prepositions, your instructor can provide extra practice problems to help you out. Alternatively, your instructor can show you how to write from an outline to help you compose essays with a logical flow.

A private tutor can also teach to your innate learning style to improve your study efficiency. For example, a visual learner could get a lot out of infographics defining various rhetorical techniques, while a kinesthetic learner may get more out of using them in their own work.

Improve Grades and Test Scores In High School English

Federal Common Core standards mandate regular English assessments throughout a student's high school years, and a high school English tutor can help you prepare. For example, many English exams incorporate reading comprehension items based on provided passages.

Your instructor can demonstrate how to identify and highlight key details so you don't have to go through the entire passage whenever you want to double-check a response. Likewise, your instructor can show you how to rule out some of the incorrect answer choices on multiple-choice tests, potentially enabling you to deduce the correct response.

How much does a high school English tutor cost?

The cost of high school English tutoring depends on a myriad of variables, including what you would like to review and how often you plan to meet your tutor. For example, a student who establishes a consistent schedule with their instructor is likely to pay a different rate than someone who uses our Instant Tutoring option to connect with a new instructor every time they need assistance.

We can also enroll you in our live high school English class or sign you up for group tutoring, so we can help students on a budget as well. Contact us today for more information on each option available to you.

How does online high school English tutoring work?

We understand that it can be challenging to get to physical tutoring sessions, so Varsity Tutors has developed a Live Learning Platform that facilitates online study sessions that can be just as effective as meeting in-person. Our platform leverages powerful features like a virtual whiteboard that can make it easier for you to take notes on one of Shakespeare's plays or how to diagram a sentence.

Video chat also ensures that asking a question about unfamiliar vocab words is just as easy as it would be in-person. Best of all, every study session is recorded automatically for future reference.

Are high school English tutors worth it?

Independent research suggests that tutored students consistently outperform their nontutored peers academically. Furthermore, a private instructor can help you develop study skills that you can use in more challenging courses later on.

For instance, active reading techniques such as taking notes while you read a novel can also serve you well in college and beyond.

We are ready and waiting to find you a great tutor, but it's up to you to get the process moving. Reach out to a friendly Educational Director online or by phone for more information on the benefits of private tutoring!

Looking for "High School English tutors near me"? Varsity Tutors can help.

High school English may not always be the most interesting class on a student's schedule, but it is among the most important. If you or your child seem to be falling behind your peers in this area, Varsity Tutors can help you connect with a quality high school English tutor who can work on your schedule.

Here are some of the most important topics commonly studied during high school English tutoring sessions:

  • Reading Comprehension
  • Literary Analysis
  • Writing skills
  • English grammar

You may think that reading comprehension and literary analysis are effectively the same thing, but they're not. Reading comprehension is the ability to understand what you read and recall it later. This is the skill you need when trying to retain information from an assigned reading, and it may be reinforced by jotting down a few notes as you go along. In contrast, literary analysis is going beyond what is literally printed on the page to answer outside questions. Why did the author write this? What techniques are they using to get their point across? This is what your teacher is generally looking for when discussing a novel in class.
