For parents of K-12 English Language Arts students: Does your child have a writing assignment due? When students see that reading provides a model for their writing, they begin to see the structure of how ideas are presented. Kids are expected to produce simple paragraphs in second grade, so they must master basic reading comprehension first to know how to have a clear topic sentence and main idea. Syntax, grammar, vocabulary, punctuation, spelling, and handwriting are also important at this stage. By the time they finish fifth grade, they should be able to do basic research and reports, write narratives, make persuasive arguments in compare/contrast essays, and develop ideas in a clear way. In middle school, they are introduced to writing for specific topics and audiences. They learn how to make persuasive arguments using the appeals (pathos, ethos, and logos), preparing for the critical thinking that takes place in high schools and universities. In high school, reading comprehension goes beyond identifying main idea, point of view, and purpose to connecting themes, motifs, and events, sometimes tying in historical events. In the past two years, I have been helping students from kindergarten to eleventh grade make sense of the different types of writing and how they can approach their reading and writing assignments. This includes study skills like planning and prioritizing as well as how to read for gist and for specific information. I am familiar with the state English standards for DC, MD, and VA and explain to students what they will be studying that school year and why it is relevant. I will keep your student on task, I am always patient and encouraging, and I keep my sense of humor at all times. I am committed to your child's success!

For university students: Have you got a research paper due? Do you have to use MLA or APA style? I'll show you how to do it from planning to final draft. What about your first-year English class? Have you got to write a Rogerian argument? Maybe you have to analyze how someo

knowledgeable and nice tutor

Patricia helped me prepare a presentation in English and she was very patient, providing useful advice on the grammar, spelling mistakes, punctualization, and pronunciation. She is also very nice and friendly, which makes it easiest enjoying the class.
