Hi, I have a BA in HIstory around have around 2 to 3 years of tutoring experience. I look forward to helping you.

My philosophy to tutoring is to have the student set the pace and to encourage the student to not be afraid to say "I don't know" or to feel embarrased when they make a mistake. I feel that mistakes are bound to happen and can be a great learning experience.

Why You Need a High School Level English Tutor

If your child’s high school English teacher just isn’t getting through to your child, their grades are not great, and your kid doesn’t want to go to class, it may be time to try something new. English is a very important part of the high school curriculum, and it’s important for your child to read as well as comprehend classic literature and have a good grasp on essay writing before college placement tests. Over the next few years, it will be important for your child to build a strong foundation of vocabulary words, essay writing ability, and reading comprehension skills. If they are struggling with any of this now it will make their transition to college or the working world that much harder. The best thing to do is create a plan of action with a high school English tutor.

A lot is covered in four years of high school English, everything from Shakespeare to advanced grammar techniques. Somethings are more enjoyable than others and often this is a class that most kids zone out of due to lack of interest. When this happens it is mainly because there is a disconnect between what the teacher is saying and what the child is picking up. It is not that the child is incapable of learning the material or that it is even boring, rather they are not meshing with their teacher's style. In order for them to be able to see things differently, it is time to get the high school English tutoring. Sometimes all that it takes is for someone else to come in and shake things up a bit. English is a very interesting subject that is filled with stories and skills we will literally use for the rest of our lives. It is important that your student not only understands what they are learning but also that they enjoy the subject materials. There should be nothing that is holding your child back, so put get them the help of a professional private high school English tutor.

High school English is also a time of transition from middle school. Things start to get harder and there has to be a certain balance that students need to perfect in order to get through a semester let alone all four years. The first year is one of the hardest due to the fact that most students are struggling to find this balance because they have never had to do work like this in their life. If this is one of the things that is troubling your student and it is affecting their English grade, then they need to get assistance. The workload increases and the difficulty level also is a lot higher. Also, now there are a lot more essays that your child has to write. This is not something they probably had to do when they were in middle school and now they are having to do it so it can be an overwhelming feeling. This is where you need to start your search for a “high school English tutor near me.” They will be able to help your child in ways that their teacher simply cannot do because of the circumstances. Your child will be getting direct feedback on their paper from certified individuals when you find a high school English tutor from HeyTutor.


Another thing that students often have trouble with is the vocabulary that they have to learn. I can remember being in high school and having vocabulary tests almost every week and then exams at the end of each month. These were incredibly stressful but a major part of our grade. A high school English tutor will be able to go over all of this material with your child and give them ways to study so that they can ace their tests and learn their materials. They are going to want to remember this vocabulary so they have a lexicon to pull from now and later on in their life. One day they will thank you for finding them “high school English tutoring near me.” Having an English tutor who is dedicated to the success of your child is something that you will not want to miss out on. Our tutors do more than is expected of them to ensure that your child is in the best hands and ready to take on anything that is given to them by their teacher.

Benefits of Hiring a High School Level English Tutor

One of the benefits of our tutoring is that each tutor has a real desire to share their passion for English with their student. High School English tutors share a thrill for learning English and can pass on interesting books and assignments that your child will enjoy. They also have the ability to accelerate the assignments for the students who are looking to be pushed further. With a professional tutor, your child will learn from an English tutor who will be able to spend more time with them than their current teacher. Since our expert tutors are truly passionate and knowledgeable about the subject matter they will have a stronger impact on your child’s learning experience. This is especially true since they are able to create a lesson plan entirely around the needs of your child.

“I need a high school English tutor” has probably been uttered by your child when they start to see all the work that is offered in this class. The older they get the harder this subject matter becomes so it is important that they take the time to get it right. With all the readings, new vocabulary and essay writing it is a time that can truly break your child. On top of this, they have social gatherings to attend and any extracurriculars that they are involved along with other classes. With so many things going on can get out of hand quickly. Do not let this happen by allowing your child to meet up with one of our tutors. When you take this step your child will be able to sit down with a language tutor and truly go over the course materials. Our tutors will look at the syllabus along with all of the graded materials that they have been struggling with during the class. From there they will create a lesson plan based on what your child is going to need to find success in the class. This is the type of tailored attention that your child will not get while in class but is offered through HeyTutor.

With a teacher of their own, there is nothing that your child will not be able to handle when they walk into the classroom. The readings, which get more difficult with each book, give a lot of students problems. Either they simply do not read them or they do but they do not understand what they have read. Because of this, they might not get the participation points that they need to pass the class or they could fail crucial exams or quizzes. To eliminate this problem from getting out of control, our tutors will go over the work with them. Ask them what they have understood and help them with anything that is not particularly making sense. All of our tutors are college educated and understand this subject material in depth. They will be able to pass this on to your child in a way that benefits them in the long run. It might even open their eyes to seeing that they actually enjoy some of the books they are reading.

These are classics and actually fantastic stories but currently, your child thinks they are dry pieces of literature that they have to read. It is just being presented to them in the wrong way, they need to see how much fun it can be which will happen with one of our tutors. If your child is currently failing the course then you are going to need a tutor who can come in and provide failure intervention. We have tutors who specialize in this but you have to make sure you do not wait until it is too late. The moment your child’s grade drops into that failure zone you need to get in contact with one of our tutors. They will able to pull your child up from the depths of this horrible place and get them back into a comfortable position. But they will not just do the work for your child so that they can turn it in and get the grade. They will give your child the skills they need to succeed in this class and any other that might come in their way. All you need to do is reach out to one of our reps at HeyTutor today so they can put you on the right path toward success.
