There are multiple reasons why you would opt for getting an English tutor. Perhaps since English is your second or third language and not your mother-tongue, you feel that you need that extra assistance. Sometimes you think that your English oral mark could use some improvement and you feel that by approaching a tutor, you can become more confident in learning how to speak the language. At Superprof, we can think of various ways in which an English tutor can work with you to plan, prepare, perfect, and present your English speech, debate or dialogue more confidently. Sometimes just getting to have conversations with an English tutor on a weekly basis can be beneficial in bettering how you speak and your grasp on the language. Remember tutors are well versed when it comes to the rubric requirements for the deliverance of a great oral presentation. Learning tips and tricks from them can ensure that you master the art of a great delivery whilst consciously paying attention to your tone, posture, body language, and message deliverance.
Certain authors like Phumlani Pikoli, Lebohang Masango and Nompumelelo Mqwebu have been transforming the literary landscape in Soweto and all over Johannesburg. These authors have been inspiring students to adore both literature and English creative writing. A private tutor can take your adoration for the language and foster it. A tutor can help blossom your life-long affection for the English language and for literary texts.
Remember English is not at all straightforward and every single reading passage requires a deeper analysis. Having an English tutorial will mean getting the added help with understanding the denotation and connotation of each word that you have read, analysing the text appropriately and being able to correctly comprehend what you have read.
Comprehension, in general, is an aspect of the English language that many students often struggle with. Reading an entire passage on its own can seem like an overwhelming experience. But having to read an entire passage thrice and then answer questions based on the passage within a certain timeframe is seriously like a difficult game of football. An English tutor will take on the role of a coach, providing feedback on what your weaknesses are and how to work with your strengths to better your results.
Remember when your teacher sets a comprehension question paper, he or she will set each question based on a different level of Bloom’s taxonomy. That is where your tutor can take the reins and help you understand which level you need to function on for each question in order to gain the full mark allocation for the question. Some questions are knowledge-based questions which simply involve remembering facts from the text. The synthesis aspect of Bloom’s taxonomy means that to adequately answer the questions, you will have to derive the difference between abstract ideas and communicate this uniquely. You could understand the text and what you have read, however, the reason for your low marks in comprehension could be that your answers are inappropriate and incorrect to the level of analysis required.
For opinion questions based on the text, there are no right or wrong answers. You may want a private tutor to stimulate your thinking and get your opinion voiced perfectly. The tutor will assist in helping you to relate the text you have read to real-life situations so you can better understand the writer’s tone, style, and point of view. Having a Superprof tutor is like having a superhero by your side that can ideally help you with developing your critical thinking skills. A dedicated tutor is willing to help you with all your exam preparation as well.
Mtshali Oswald Joseph is a famous South African poet born in KwaZulu Natal and currently living in Soweto. It is no surprise that Soweto with its rich history and heritage is the ideal place for poetic expression. Would you like to get your poetic fingers working too? Aside from Soweto being a poetic geniuses dream, there is also the ability to woo audiences with your remarkable skills in the spoken word through the enactment of plays and dramas. The Soweto Theatre for one has opened the world of theatre to the Sowetan community. If the theatre is what you love and you would one day love to bring Shakespeare to Soweto, then surely learning to speak English correctly, adhering to correct pronunciation, and bettering your understanding of literary works should be the foundation.
You could always team up with likeminded individuals who also have a love for poetry and plays. Have fun exploring rhythm, rhyme, and figurative language together. Host poetry jams and use verses of poetry to speak about social, cultural, and political issues openly. Work on developing modernised versions of Shakespeare’s plays. Talk to the peers in your group about what you have liked or disliked about specific Shakespearean plays. If you are looking for a more formal group to help you gain a true feel of Shakespeare, enrol in your local drama club. Taking part in drama groups helps tremendously with confidence and learning how to speak English perfectly.
If you feel that you require personal support and would love to be able to learn effectively at your own pace then consider private English tuition. By attending weekly English tutorials, you can gain lessons that are specifically structured to your needs. You will be able to work on your areas of weaknesses like comprehension, poetry, and even literature. Perhaps you struggle with reading certain words and require a recap on reading phonetically- this is where a tutor will step in and guide you. Personalised tuition is always best to advance your skills set.
If you are contemplating the idea of getting a private tutor, remember the idiom, “The early bird always catches the worm.” Catch the right tutor. You may search for the perfect tutor in your own school or university or simply attend an English support group after school.
