ACT English

I have written English curriculum and have experience tutoring and teaching students in English, reading, and writing. I have also studied logic as part of my Philosophy degree.

This is done by helping students to think through why they have chosen a certain answer, and be able to explain it., not just giving them the answer and expecting them to remember. They can then apply their critical thinking to all types of questions, and in cases where they don't know the exact answer, they can still make a logical choice.
