Grade 2 English Tutoring

Grade two students need to be able to stay focused on longer texts. They should be able to extract meaning from stories with more complex plots and multiple characters and events. Grade two students should be growing in confidence, expressing themselves and developing their vocabulary.

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.
