English is the Most Important Subject
English is arguably the most important subject, as it forms the basis of our ability to use language to communicate, as well as being able to express and understand ideas and concepts. Even if a person has a good conceptual understanding of something, their ability to explain, describe, understand and communicate anything about it all comes down to their ability to use and interpret the correct combination of words. At all stages and levels of schooling, your child must demonstrate a good understanding of their English language skills through reading, writing, speaking and listening. Many studies across the world have even found that one of the strongest markers for a young person’s success in life comes down to their literacy and language skills.
English Results and University Admission
The literacy skills taught in English are considered so important that the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authoritie made English a compulsory subject in the Higher School Certificate (VCE). Regardless of what your child is planning on studying at university, their English marks contribute enormously to their final ATAR mark.
Developing English Skills Early
English language and literacy skills take many years to nurture however, which is why home English Tuition in Merricks should commence from as early as possible. Being able to use words to communicate effectively and understand communication successfully empowers a child to feel confidence about their ability to understand more in any context and all areas of their life. At the younger ages (primary school level) the areas your Merricks English Tutor will specialise in include spelling, report writing, hand writing, creative writing, reading, comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, punctuation, phonics, analysing literature, essay writing and exam skills to name a few.
English Tutoring Merricks: What to Expect
Our Professional Private Tutors Merricks will provide an assessment of your child’s literacy skills and English competencies to identify their areas of strengths and weaknesses.
They will ask to see report cards, work books, past assignments and any feedback from your son or daughters English Teacher at school.
They will work with you and your child to provide a program centred on your child’s individual needs, based closely around the work your son or daughter is doing in their English class at school.

THE BEST APPROACH FOR THE BEST RESULTS
LEARNING...Everybody learns in a different way. To make sure your child learns most effectively, our private tutors cater to their own unique individual learning style.
UNDERSTANDING...English concepts can often seem more complex than they need to unless they are presented using a constructivist approach to teaching which is what our tutors use.
THINKING...Learning to learn requires more than just memorising, but the application of Higher Order Thinking skills such as analysing, evaluating and creativity.
APPLICATION...Many students have the right knowledge, but their grades fall short because they lack good exam taking skills, literacy skills or other assessment skills.
STRENGTHS...Your child's personal tutor will help them overcome their learning barriers and weaknesses by strategically capitalising on their personal strengths.
PASSION...Learning happens automatically when a student is completely engaged in something they feel passionate towards or something directly relevant to their interests.
CONFIDENCE...Our home tutors receive specialised training to teach them how to build your child's confidence towards learning to help them break through limitations.
AUTONOMY...Your child's private home tutor will not only teach them knowledge and thinking skills, but teach them to learn autonomously so they get more from school time.
