Leap into literature
We work with students on core middle-school reading and writing skills, standardized tests, and a variety of other extremely cool literary topics for school, enrichment, or even just for fun!
If your child is interested in learning an English topic that you don’t see listed here, check out our High School English page or reach out to us. No topic is too obscure for our team. And, if you believe your child requires English remediation, please don’t hesitate to reach out - we work with many students on foundational skills and conquering academic phobia.
