Grade 3 English Tutoring

Grade three students need to be able to stay focused on longer texts and begin to use more complex vocabulary. There is more focus on form and tone, punctuation and personal style come into play in reading and writing.

We work with the local curriculum which enables us to create a firm foundation which your child can build their language skills on. During grades one through three, students must develop oral, writing, reading and media literacy skills.

They will utilize books, songs, poems, discussions, soundtracks, posters and signs, cartoons, movies and television to develop the requisite skills. Grade two students should also have access to friendly letters, factual recounts and folk tales.
