High School Reading & Writing

Our reading coaches are prepared to close vocabulary gaps, review the mechanics of literature, and teach students how to unveil the intentions of authors. With the learning gap closed, students can manage college-level text and perform their best on the ACT and SAT. Our writing coaches help students maximize the impact of their literary works by reinforcing the effective use of rhetoric, emphasizing the importance of well-chosen words, and encouraging students to get creative while they meet the criteria put forth in each assignment.
