English Grinds and English Tutors
English is a varied language with complex rules and often has words with the same spelling but different meanings. It can be a difficult subject for children to understand, and falling behind even a bit can lead to difficulty in later years. It’s essential that children have the ability to read and write clearly and confidently.
Here at Tutor Doctor, our English grinds have years of experience in helping children get past any challenges they have in studying English. We start with an assessment to establish where the student may have weaknesses. Our English tutors then work with the student to equip them with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to improve.
