English classes, at the high school level, cover reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing. These five categories are required by the National Council of Teachers of English to develop skills to enhance analytical reading of literature, writing essays, reading out loud, listening to well-written prose, and previewing assignments. The focus becomes a proficiency in learning how to understand how writing is assembled and how themes, characters, and plots work together to create meaning. In high school, English equates to a study of combining language arts to give value to important skills that will prepare students for higher education. Tutoring offers the benefit of professionals supporting students to develop and reach higher learning potentials at their current grade level.
