As a former English teacher with years of experience and a retired licensed social worker, I believe developing a student's confidence goes a long way toward success.
Because the ACT carries so much weight, students are often intimidated by it. The English portion of the ACT––English, Reading Comprehension, and Composition––counts for more than any other subject tested.
Therefore, I use the Kaplan Test Prep method. Kaplan has been proven the world leaders in test preparation for more than 70 years. Success comes from two techniques:
* using the right strategies and tools to succeed
* using the most personalized approach to meet individual
I make certain to create a supportive learning environment, so your child has the best chance of experience learning as fun and effective.
Technically, science is a system of acquiring knowledge which uses observation and experimentation to describe and explain natural phenomena.
But that doesn't mean studying science has to be hard, scary, or uninteresting.
I use many fun and effective ways to help your child enjoy scientific learning and increase individual confidence.
When many of us think of English class, we fear that dreaded red pen and tedious grammar rules. No worries. I'm prepared with a bag of tricks to banish these concerns.
So, what is English as a subject? In short, the study of English includes four parts: literature, grammar, composition, and speech.
Literature is the study of reading/analyzing/enjoying stories, poem, and other written works. Grammar is the study of the mechanics and usage of the language. Composition is the study of writing stories, poems, reports, and other written forms. It also includes how to do research. Speech is the study of preparing announcements and presentations.

Let's face it. French is one of the most romantic languages in the world, but it's also the second most influential one.
I have taught French as an Intern in the Louisiana State University Foreign Language Department and travelled extensively in France where I learned to appreciate the culture as well. I also lived with a French couple for a year.
The basic components of the language––vocabulary, spelling, conjugation, punctuation, and sentence structure––are all part of the learning experience.
However, there are also three levels of mastering a foreign language which are learning to read, write, and speak it.
Some of us get a little nervous about the speaking part, but as a retired social worker and teacher, I believe developing a student's confidence goes a long way toward acquiring success.
I am careful to create a supportive learning environment so your child has the best chance of experiencing learning as fun.
Grammar is the study of the way the sentences of a language are constructed.
Phonics is a highly successful method of teaching reading. It involves understanding how letters and sounds go together.
It also teaches how to break down words into syllables (parts) and how to recognize which syllable is accented in speech.
Armed with these skills, your child can become an independent "word detective" by learning how to "sound out" a written word to know how to pronounce it.

Proofreading involves combing through a work looking for any glitches. These include spaces, punctuation, spelling. This can involve comparing the final marked copy with the final trail print.
Reading is one of the four main language arts skills along with listening, speaking, and writing. It's basically a way of looking at symbols (letters, spaces, punctuation) and getting meaning from them. Reading aids vocabulary, written and spoken English skills.
Spelling matters––no matter what subject or task is involved.
Did you know computer spell check programs often overlook misspelled words?
Without the correct formation of letters to form words, writing can be unclear leading to confusion about the topic involved.
Besides, good spelling skills are a great way to let others know you are well-educated and sincere.
But, learning spelling doesn't have to be boring. I use many fun ways to improve your spelling skills.
