Description

Is your son or daughter always (or are you) struggling with long or difficult books? Maybe you are having a tough time getting through the reading. Do you know a college or high school student who is unprepared for the difficulty level of the things you need to read to succeed in class?

Literacy Boot Camp will fix all of that.

Here are the exercises you'll need in order to become more literate and capable with English. These are the things that your grandparents did. They hated it, but this work is what they did back in the days to become not only LITERATE, but CONFIDENT when it comes to reading and writing. It isn't always fun, but it's the 'bad tasting medicine' that works best.

Who this course is for:
  • Students who want to both write and speak with skill and complexity.

There is no better way to improve than by doing.

If there's only one tip you take from this tutorial, this is the one:

· "I hear and I forget.

· I see and I remember.

· I do and I understand."

Practicing the Phrase exercise is the best way forward.

You know what really helps? studying with a friend.

Working with people on improving your score is the ultimate way to measure your growth. We’ve studied together here on this site. Now sit with someone else and prep together. I have found that it really works, as people motivate each other better than they do internally.

Thank you for choosing this prep class. Best of luck on this, and on everything else you do!

Final Thoughts and a sincere thank you.
