Does your student know the difference between ‘Let’s eat, grandma’ and ‘Let’s eat grandma’? If not, they will after taking Biltmore Tutoring’s fun and educational, too-cool-for-school, ‘Good Grammar Saves Lives‘ summer grammar workshop.
Did you know that in North Carolina’s public schools, grammar is required to be taught in the fourth grade and then never again?
Designed by our Language Curriculum Coordinator, Melissa Myers, this grammar workshop will refresh students on basic grammar concepts, taking them into the depths of the ‘they’re/their/there’ conundrum, and then return them safely through the building blocks of usage and the mechanics of English grammar.
Students will cover a wide variety of topics, from punctuation to agreement, and they’ll have fun doing it!
Sound terrible? It’s not! Students in middle school and high school need to be able to read and write effectively, and this refresher will help reduce stress with both. Biltmore Tutoring’s techniques focus on the simplification of grammar to key points that are consistently tested on various standardized tests – such as the SAT and ACT – and are crucial to good essay writing. Good writing skills, as we all know, are essential in order to do well in college and especially in graduate school.
Your student will emerge from this fun and energizing grammar workshop as a better writer and a much better test-taker!
