Learning Words, Increasing Application

One of the greatest pleasures of being an English teacher is seeing the magical glint in the eyes of a student who finally “gets” what objective or strategy is being taught in class—the “a-ha” phenomenon. The objectives are plentiful: rhetorical strategies in an argumentative essay, vocabulary decoding in newly-encountered texts, literary elements such as hyperbole and personification, the perfect thesis statement, the effects of diction as it pertains to characterization, theme recognition,…

Tawanda B. from Charlotte, NC Granville is an EXCEPTIONAL tutor!!! His breadth of knowledge, patience, and delivery of material is phenomenal! Granville tutors my 16-year-old son who has struggled academically since he was a little boy. My son has had numerous tutors and all of them have made positive contributions towards his education; however, none of them have been as effective as Granville. Holding a doctoral degree, I was astounded to learn that my 16-year-old son didn't know how to make a sentence, yet, he's in Honors English! I knew he had difficulty with grammar but not to this degree. I definitely had to self-reflect; I felt like I'd failed him. What really puzzles me is how he made it to the 10th grade without demonstrating proficiency with these basic concepts. Granville has a way of pointing out a child's weaknesses without chastising him, preserving his self esteem. My son is very receptive to his teaching and even welcomes his suggestions. What I can't say to my son, Granville can. Granville's goes out of his way to ensure my son is grasping the material. He is resourceful, as he directs me to several study aids to assist with my son's learning. Since working with Granville, my son's speech is even more elaborate. The way he expresses himself is totally different. He read a presentation speech to me the other night and I asked myself, "Did you write that?!" I couldn't believe it! With Granville tutoring him, I'm confident that my son will not only be proficient but will master these and other concepts required throughout life and his high school career. If you want an effective tutor who sets the bar high, I highly recommend Granville!!!
