Private High School English Tutors

  • High school English was the single most difficult
    class for me. There is something about the fact
    that everything is so subjective that just makes
    it an annoyance. I was never one to need private
    K-8 English tutors, but that definitely changed
    when I got to high school. There are a few things
    that step up the difficulty level and make
    English a bit more complicated. Here is an
    overview of some of the stuff that you should
    target with private high school level English
    tutors.

Annotation
  • Admittedly, this is not a skill that is required
    of all English students when you are in high
    school, so this may not apply to you. In my high
    school, you had the choice toward your junior and
    senior year of bumping up to honors English or
    even AP English. If I remember right, it was AP
    English that emphasized annotations. Now, I am
    not someone who likes writing in a books margins
    and to dog-ear a page looks so sloppy to me that
    my OCD kicks in and tells me that I need to stop,
    but these are the essential skills with
    annotation. The point is that you are taking note
    of things that strike you as you go, so you can
    go back to those points later when needed. If you
    look at a high school English teachers copy of
    the same book that you are reading, you might
    notice that they have deeply annotated their copy
    to help guide the class. As much as you note what
    you feel is right, knowing what is important and
    what is not takes practice and that is something
    that you can learn with a tutor. You might even
    bump up to private college level English tutors
    because they tend to have more experience with
    annotation.

Shakespeare
  • Another of the most difficult parts of English
    class is Shakespeare. As much as people say that
    his works were written in English, the language
    is so old fashioned and out of date that it is
    almost impossible to understand. I would have to
    read and reread over and over to make sure that I
    understood what was being said. Only when I was
    about to graduate did I find No Fear Shakespeare,
    which is a service provided by Spark Notes that,
    instead of summarizing like they usually do,
    takes advantage of the lapsed copyrights on
    Shakespeares work to publish the full play, but
    translated into modern English. It is a life
    saver that I did not find until way too late.

Research Papers and Citations
  • Finally, high school brings a new set of
    challenges when it comes to research papers. At
    the lower levels, you are just learning how to
    write and how to structure your ideas, but you
    are not quite ready to get into citing your
    sources. Proper attribution is key in this day
    and age, so you need to learn how to create a
    citations page and cite sources throughout your
    writing. MLA, APA, and Chicago formats are all
    things you might need to know.
