Poetry for Readers Who Dislike Poetry

This class is intended for high schoolers who have been taught that poetry is a puzzle to solve or a code to crack — a daunting trap with only one right answer forever floating out of reach. Rather than memorizing lists of literary devices, we will find authors of all eras and identities whose work moves us — then set about figuring out why. Note that you don’t have to hate poetry to take this class — but even if you do, it will at least make you sound thoughtful and sophisticated. What do you have to lose?

Poetry can be intimidating to learn and understand, especially for first-time students who may find it boring or uninteresting. But Miles believes poetry is more than a puzzle that one has to solve; it can be for anyone! Let your child discover the wonders of poetry in Mile’s online poetry class!

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!

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!

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!
