Why Study English in High School?
Degrees in the humanities have long been on the decline, and you might wonder why you are required to study English and literature in high school at all. The Modern Language Association found that Ph.D.-level job openings in English fell for the third year in a row to 1,015 openings in 2015, which was a 3 percent decline over the prior year. With fewer people getting humanities degrees and a worsening career outlook, you might feel as if studying English isn’t a worthwhile pursuit. This is the wrong way for you to look at your studies, however. In order to get the top grades and the best scores, you must understand why the study of English is important for developing the critical, analytical thinking skills that your upper-level coursework and college classes will demand.
You might be good in English overall but also have a slight deficiency in one portion of it. With the help of one-on-one instruction and progress monitoring, you can hone in on the areas in which you struggle so that you can gain improvements. You need the type of reasoning and writing skills learned in your English coursework in nearly all of your other classes. For example, you will also need to identify key concepts and utilize critical thinking in your history, science and math classes. Good writing and a strong vocabulary are important as well so that you can become an effective communicator, conveying your ideas with the proper level of meaning and force.
A good approach to English learning will necessitate your willingness to take a break from your electronic devices and to delve into reading. By reading as much as possible, you will begin to see the nuances of language and to gain a better understanding of the human condition. Think critically when you read, asking yourself hypothetical questions about the material. Make sure to actively participate in your classroom discussions, and ask your teacher about anything you do not understand.
When you work with your Going Ivy tutor, you will receive one-on-one attention and help that is focused on building on your strengths while helping you to become proficient in your weaker areas. Tutoring can be very beneficial if you are willing to do the work. Your tutor will ask you to complete extra assignments that are structured in such a way as to address the areas in which you need the most help. By working hard, reading and writing, you can get the types of grades in your English classes that you have the potential to achieve. English tutoring can also offer you the foundation that you need to improve your grades and scores across all of your subjects, translating into better admissions test scores and higher AP scores later.
