The enormous reservoir of English literature offers a vast array of fun and exciting stories from which we learn about the world and about ourselves. There are so many awesome and exciting books and plays in all the various literary periods that it is almost impossible to choose a favorite era or author! Together we can explore the great works of William Shakespeare from the Elizabethan days, or of Charles Dickens from the early Victorian period, or perhaps one of the many great authors from the nineteenth or twentieth centuries and beyond. Read to understand; learn to study and analyze great works of literature, but first and foremost read literature to enjoy life.
Proofreading is one of the most natural things for me to do for people simply because I have always been the default proofreader for family and friends before I began to do it professionally. I offer corrections as well as explanations to help you understand the applicable grammatical rules at hand. Learn the many common mistakes people make when writing and learn to avoid them in the future.
Reading offers so much to the reader. We read for many reasons; to gain knowledge, to relax and enjoy ourselves, to be entertained, to satisfy a school requirement, to learn about the world, to learn about ourselves. Reading skills vary greatly in students, and comprehension is vital. Learning to identify the most important parts of discourse is the key to success for reading at any level.

Vocabulary is of paramount importance. Not only does vocabulary comprise the building blocks of effective language, it also aids in expression, communication, and reading comprehension.
