How Learning Works helps English students at school

English requires a range of skills such as spelling, punctuation and grammar as well as the ability to write descriptive paragraphs which conveys a specific point or build a persuasive argument. It is also crucial that students can show that they comprehend what they read.

Developing better writers

We develop our students’ writing skills so they can confidently write about the texts they are studying at school. We focus on comprehension and vocabulary. We teach students the skills to interpret, analyse and join together their ideas. We read the novels students are studying at school so we can prepare work relevant to them in relation to that text.

We focus on developing better writers and teaching the elements of an essay in a structured way.  From Year Seven through to VCE, Learning Works can tailor a high school English tutoring program that will focus on key skills relevant to the school curriculum for your child.
