Why is English Important?

Our learning specialists and academic tutors provide 1:1 individualized tutoring in English for students of all ages.

 

The English language is the official language of 55 countries and spoken by an estimated two billion people across the globe. As the language of international communication, it is not surprising that English is the most common second language in the world.
 
But English tutoring is not only for international learners who wish to improve their English skills. Having a good grasp of the English language is important even for native speakers.

How can English Mastery Improves Your Writing, Speaking, and Reading Comprehension Skills?

 

Effective and successful communication in English does not stop at being able to speak and understand the language. It also involves learning the rules of grammar and its many complex rules, developing a robust vocabulary, and enhancing spelling skills.
 
Mastery of English grammar, vocabulary, and spelling helps you become a more effective writer and speaker. This means being able to express your thoughts and ideas—whether through speech or in writing—in a clearer, more concise way.
 
It also helps students improve their reading comprehension skills. They learn to break down complex sentences and use context clues to understand unfamiliar words. And even for native English speakers, these skills need to be explicitly taught and practiced in order to become proficient communicators.

Do You have Difficulties and Problems in Learning English?

What is Grammar?

 

English Grammar is complex making it difficult to remember and use logically. Ensuring you use the correct grammar can be tricky, especially when you are in conversation with someone and they are speaking at a fast pace. Learning grammar is like learning to drive. You can learn all of the theory, rules and regulations, but you won’t master it unless you practice it and it starts to become second nature to you. Grammar is extremely important. Incorrect use of grammar can confuse the person you are speaking to and even change the meaning of what you are communicating.

 

 

What is Vocabulary?

 

It is often a challenge to learn vocabulary particularly when it comes to verb variations and understanding which tense should be used in various situations. English has one of the biggest vocabularies of all languages and it can be very confusing for non-English speakers to master.

What is Slang and Colloquialism?

 

The English language has an extensive vocabulary and complicated grammar. There is a lot to teach students and rarely are they exposed to the slang words used by English speakers in everyday conversation. Sentences can be predominantly filled with slang words so maintaining a conversation can be difficult for anyone who doesn’t understand what they mean.

 

 

What is Pronunciation?

 

Knowing how to pronounce words in English can be very difficult. English speakers have been taught these from an early age which is how they know not to pronounce the ‘k’ on ‘knight’. They are taught the subtleties in how to pronounce something to communicate the right message. Furthermore, depending on the first language of the English student, it can often be difficult to pronounce certain words properly, having not ever had to create that phonetic sound before.

 

 

What are the Variations in English?

 

The variations in the different forms of English can often be difficult to understand. For example, the difference between using formal and informal language or the differences between spoken and written language. This leads to students writing words phonetically. For example, how they would say it rather than its spelling.

My son was tutored for the ACT by Jake. Jake was able to find the most efficient way of getting the work done. What impressed me most was the interest he took in lowering the test anxiety, making the test if possible more enjoyable. He was able to take on the issue of test anxiety and it worked!

 

-L. Edelstein 

My son who has dyslexia enjoyed working with Jeffrey on his math skills so much that he didn’t want to stop at the end of sessions. Jeffrey connected to my son. He was gentle with his teaching approach and helped to build his self-esteem and confidence.

Matt tutored my son for the SAT & ACT this fall We liked his positive approach to help learn the necessary testing skills. He is friendly, thoughtful and points out strengths while emphasizing areas that need extra work. Thank you for sending him to us!

 

-Colleen Donohue  

I’ve had many tutors come thru my door over the years and feel there is something very special and extra professional about the tutors from Themba. They all understood my son s needs and had an amazing way of working with him. Kadyn tutored my son last year and I feel she contributed to his growth in all areas of learning. Her level of education was high and she had a very kind and calming personality that made it easy for my son to connect with her. I asked him what he thought of Kadyn. He said she helped me read articles, pull out information, organize my thoughts and put my ideas on paper. It made me feel more successful as a student.

 

-S.F. 

My son, a junior in a private high school worked, with a wonderful tutor from Themba to get ready for his SATs. I spoke with Blythe and she asked detailed questions about my sons strengths and weaknesses. She put me in touch with Don, who worked beautifully with my son. Don immediately understood where my son needed help and focused their time together on specific areas of need. He also recognized my sons strengths ( math )and was able to accelerate his understanding in those areas. My sons score jumped 190 points! The individualized instruction he got from Themba and Don was amazing! I highly recommend these wonderful people.

 

-Marie W.  

Having been through the SAT/ACT tutoring process before with my older daughter, I knew we d need something less conventional, more tailor-made, for my son–someone who could adjust and meet the needs of my son s specific learning needs. My son has ADHD and easily becomes overwhelmed and anxious with regards to test-taking. After his first tutoring session with Dr. Brooke, we knew it was a “good fit . She was able to quickly develop a great working rapport with my son. She understood that he needed to be gently challenged, praised and continually encouraged to keep him from becoming overly frustrated. His original PSAT score was a 26. Dr. Brooke helped him to bring his ACT score up to a 31. We can’t thank her enough!
