All you need to know about English tutoring

Personalized English Tutoring Near You

Reading and writing skills are essential to living a happy and full life. They are two things we do every single day, both in our professional and personal lives.

However, many students struggle with reading and writing. As they are such essential abilities, having difficulty with one or both can be quite upsetting for a child.

Learning reading and writing in school can be difficult, but they don’t have to be. If your child is struggling in their English classes, English tutoring will help your child not only better understand the subject, but gain confidence in their abilities. (And maybe have a little fun along the way, too!)

GoStudent has the best English tutors around. Whether your child is just learning how to read or writing ten-page papers, our expert, hand-picked tutors are equipped to help your child succeed in their English classes. With GoStudent, English doesn’t have to be intimidating or overwhelming. Instead, it can be an exciting opportunity to learn something new. Your child has all the skills they need to excel in English already. They just need a little help finding them, and that’s what GoStudent is for.

English classes are important for a well-rounded education

English is one of the most important school subjects and one that your child will have at every year of their education. These classes can cover a number of different studies of the language:

  • Grammar - Your child may be a native English speaker, but it’s important to fully understand how the language works. Grammar teaches verb tenses, punctuation rules, and sentence structure. Understanding grammar in your own language can help make learning another language easier, too.
  • Spelling - In the age of autocorrect, spelling lessons can feel less essential. However, learning how to spell words is very important for effective written communication. Learning how to spell complicated words is also a great way for children to gain more confidence in their intellectual abilities.
  • Handwriting - As a society, we type more than we write these days. Understanding how to properly write, though, is still essential. Handwriting lessons too help children develop their fine motor skills as well.
  • Reading Comprehension - Knowing how to read is more than just knowing what words on paper mean. It also involves being able to take deeper meaning for words, and understand any complex topics or ideas being shared.
  • Literature - Studying literature, whether classic or contemporary, is an important way to make sense of the world around us. Through studying literature, students can also learn about different cultures and about history as well.
  • Writing - Being able to clearly communicate through the written word is an essential life skill. Any job will likely require some sort of written communication, even if just through basic e-mails. Creative writing may not have as many practical implications, but it’s an important way that children can express themselves--and the world can always use more art and creativity, too!

Some learning disabilities make reading and writing challenging

There are many different aspects of studying English. Some neurodiverse students, though, may especially struggle with reading and writing. There are known learning disabilities that make reading and writing more challenging for some students.

Dyslexia

Dyslexia affects the part of the brain that processes language. Children with dyslexia struggle with reading comprehension. They often misspell words and have a difficult time connecting a letter to the sound it makes. Dyslexia can make reading fluently a challenge, and those with dyslexia read quite slowly, and often avoid reading aloud. A child with dyslexia is no less intelligent than their peers, but since they can struggle with reading and writing, they can often feel insecure about their intelligence and academic abilities.

Dysgraphia

Dysgraphia refers to difficulty writing. A child with dysgraphia may know in their head exactly what they want to write, but be unable to put those thoughts on paper. It often impacts the motor skills related to writing, such as writing in a straight line, knowing the shape of letters, holding a pencil, and knowing sentence structure. Many children with ADHD experience dysgraphia as well.

GoStudent is here to help

Reading and writing can be challenging for students, making English classes a source of anxiety.

However, understanding and succeeding in English is important for any child’s academic progress. It’s one of the fundamental subjects throughout schooling, as well as a subject students are most frequently assessed on. Most yearly standardized tests have a reading and writing component, as do both high school and college entrance exams.
