About

Hi everyone! I recently co-hosted an Intro to Grammar series with someone, and many people requested for it to be hosted again at a different time, so here we are!

Do you want to master the basics of grammar and improve your writing skills? If so, join me for a series of fun and interactive tutoring sessions that will cover the essential topics of grammar. You will learn how to use different parts of speech, construct sentences, and express yourself clearly and accurately. Each session will include an objective, content, and exercises to help you practice and reinforce your learning.

✋ ATTENDANCE POLICY

Please try to attend as many sessions as you can as these sessions build off of each other. However, if you must miss a session, please message me so I can host a catch-up session!

About the Tutor

I’m a high school Junior from New Jersey here to improve in AP Chem, get advice/help from people who've already taken AP World, AP Lang (considering I'm self-studying), and prepare for the SAT. In my free time, I enjoy reading books of any sort, drawing at ungodly hours, learning new things, cooking, and tutoring people in Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Biology, and History here at Schoolhouse as well as tutoring people at my school with all of the classes I've taken already or am currently taking. Please feel free to reach out for any help! :)

Session 3: Subject and Predicate Every sentence has two main parts: a subject and a predicate. The subject is the person, place, thing, or idea that the sentence is about. The predicate is the part that tells something about the subject, such as an action or a state of being. In this session, you will learn how to identify subjects and predicates in sentences and how to make them agree in number and person. You will practice finding subjects and predicates in sentences and see how they affect the completeness and correctness of language.

Session 4: Verbs (Action and Linking) Verbs are words that show actions or states of being. There are two main types of verbs: action and linking. Action verbs express what the subject does or did, such as run, jump, sing, or write. Linking verbs connect the subject to a word that describes or identifies it, such as be, seem, look, or become. In this session, you will learn how to differentiate between action and linking verbs and how to use them in sentences. You will also learn about different forms of verbs, such as base, past, present, and future. You will practice identifying and using action and linking verbs in sentences and see how they affect the expression and variety of language.

Session 5: Tenses (Present, Past, Future) Tenses are forms of verbs that indicate the time of an action or a state of being. There are three basic tenses in English: present, past, and future. The present tense shows what is happening now or in general. The past tense shows what happened before now. The future tense shows what will happen later. In this session, you will learn how to form and use the basic tenses in English. You will also learn about regular and irregular verbs, which have different rules for forming the past tense. You will practice forming sentences in different tenses and see how they affect the accuracy and relevance of language.

Adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs, such as quickly, slowly, very, or extremely. In this session, you will learn the definitions of adjectives and adverbs and how to use them in sentences. You will also learn about comparison forms, which show how two or more things are similar or different, such as bigger, smaller, more, or less. You will practice using adjectives and adverbs to describe objects or actions and see how they affect the detail and interest of language.

Session 7: Articles (a, an, the) Articles are words that precede nouns and indicate their specificity or quantity. There are three articles in English: a, an, and the. A and an are called indefinite articles, because they are used with nonspecific or general nouns, such as a book, an apple, or a dog. The is called a definite article, because it is used with specific or known nouns, such as the book, the apple, or the dog. In this session, you will learn the definitions of articles and how to use them correctly. You will also learn when to use a or an, depending on the sound of the following word. You will practice inserting the correct articles into sentences and see how they affect the clarity and precision of language.
