Best Ways To Prep For AP English Literature and Composition

AP English Literature and Composition is all about understanding and evaluating fiction and writing effective argumentative essays supporting your position. These skills can be difficult to develop on your own, but thankfully an AP English Literature and Composition tutor can help you out.

For example, your academic coach can show you how to work from an outline to give your arguments a logical structure readers can easily follow. They can also review the rhetorical techniques fiction authors use to get their point across, making it easier to interpret works. Unfortunately, software-based test prep options are ill-suited to the type of creative analysis demanded by your course.

The price of online AP English Literature and Composition tutoring depends on several different factors, including how often you meet your instructor and the specific concepts you'd like to review.

Online AP English Literature and Composition Tutoring review by Danielle
The student and I reviewed one of his essays for English. He is an extremely bright student, very impressive but wants to improve his grades his is earning on his timed essays. We thoroughly examined and dissected what he wrote and the areas he needs to focus on to earn a higher grade. He has some slight trouble with proper word choice and being able to identify an author's tone and how to write and analyze that. I went over that with him and told him he needs to keep in mind the global idea and vision of what the author is trying to accomplish, keeping in mind the genre and rhetorical strategies the author is employing.

The student and I worked through her annotated bibliography assignment, editing her existing sources and annotations as well as developing a number of additional possible sources. We discussed how the creation of the outline for her research paper influences the selection of her sources, and vice versa, and came up with a rough outline to guide her through the creation of the rest of her bibliography. We made plans to meet again on Thursday in order to edit the upcoming additions to her bibliography.

During our session, the student worked on his rough draft for his Personal Statement while I proofread his rough draft for his Frankenstein assignment. Once I was done proofreading and he had written his rough draft, we edited his Frankenstein paper. He is going to print off the paper so I can do a handwritten edit of the rough draft and we can finish the final draft at our next session.
