“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” – Charles William Eliot, President of Harvard University
An awareness of linguistic usage, of rhetoric and of different kinds of discursive practice is essential for young people developing their careers in this era of mass communication and social media. At LCC Learning our expert A Level English Language Private tuition covers everything from the basics of English language usage (spelling, grammatical awareness) to more advanced skills (linguistics, discourse analysis, prosody). At LCC Learning we help students to become both proficient and imaginative users of the English language through private tuition. Our tutors are fully up-to-date on recent changes to the curriculum in A Level English Language.
The A Level English Language private tuition that we provide at LCC Learning encourages students to express themselves clearly, accurately and concisely, while tailoring their language to the audience they are addressing and making full use of the resources of the English language. Our students learn how to present balanced arguments on a variety of topics in their writing. Through private tuition, we aim to enhance students’ ability to write fluent and vivid English prose and to help them to enjoy a wide variety of texts with a view to broadening their vocabulary and their knowledge of linguistic conventions. We also work to extend their English language comprehension, so that they are able to understand difficult texts and explain their implications and nuances. By encouraging students to read and discuss a wide range of fiction and non-fiction, our expert tutors ensure that they understand the diversity of writing in the English language and the differences between various genres. This directed reading also helps students to develop their own craft as writers.
