Course Concept

AP English Language and Composition is a college-level course that focuses on developing students' skills in critical reading, analysis, and writing. The course explores various forms of non-fiction texts, such as essays, speeches, articles, and visual media, with an emphasis on rhetorical analysis and effective communication.

AP English Language and Composition not only enhances students' reading and writing skills but also fosters their ability to critically engage with texts and communicate effectively. The course prepares students for college-level reading and writing tasks, and the skills developed in the course are valuable across a range of disciplines and careers.

  • Reading and Analysis: Students learn to critically read and analyze complex texts from a variety of genres. They examine the author's purpose, audience, and rhetorical strategies, as well as the use of evidence and appeals to persuade or inform the reader.
  • Rhetorical Analysis: The course emphasizes the analysis of rhetorical devices and techniques employed by writers to convey their messages effectively. Students study how authors use language, tone, structure, and stylistic elements to engage readers and convey their ideas.
  • Argumentation and Persuasion: Students learn to construct well-reasoned arguments and persuasive essays. They analyze and evaluate the effectiveness of different types of arguments, identify logical fallacies, and develop their own persuasive writing skills.
  • Synthesis of Information: Students engage in synthesizing information from multiple sources to develop well-supported arguments. They learn to integrate and cite evidence from various texts and evaluate the credibility and reliability of sources.
  • Writing Skills: The course focuses on developing students' writing skills in various formats, including essays, rhetorical analyses, and argumentative pieces. Students learn to write with clarity, coherence, and precision, while employing effective rhetorical strategies and organizational techniques.
  • Critical Thinking: AP English Language and Composition cultivates students' critical thinking skills by encouraging them to analyze and evaluate ideas, arguments, and evidence. They learn to question assumptions, consider different perspectives, and form their own informed opinions.
  • Language and Style: Students study the use of language and style in texts, including figurative language, syntax, and diction. They analyze how authors use these elements to convey meaning, create tone, and engage the reader.

    expand_more

    All our classes are live instructor lead classes. All our academic tutoring are only one-on-one.

  • When is the best time to get started?
    expand_more

    The earlier the better! When students come to us right before it is time to apply to college, there is only so much we can do. We can certainly help these students with score improvements and craft as compelling an application as possible, but we are given experiences and data points that cannot be altered.

    When students come to us early in their educational careers, we pair them with a counselor to help them develop as applicants, students, and people early on. We help students strategize early, build their profiles, and stand out from their peers. We help students explore and develop their academic interests, engage in unique and meaningful extracurricular activities, strengthen their personal qualities and leadership skills, and ultimately, position them to get into the best schools possible.

    It takes A LOT of hard work, strategy, determination, and self-reflection to get into the school of your dreams. At AP Guru, we are here, every step of the way, to help you get there.

  • Do test prep courses work?
    expand_more

    Yes! Standardized tests focus on a small, unique set of skills and topics. By knowing exactly what types of questions are on the test, a student gains a distinct advantage. Furthermore, a great tutoring company can build on this advantage by providing a highly individualized learning experience and a wealth of fantastic strategies for all types of students.  We have the evidence from thousands of students across 10+ years that great improvement is possible for nearly everyone.

  • Do you only help students who want to go to top schools?
    expand_more

    No. We know that each student is different and has unique goals and aspirations. Our focus is to help each student excel in the tests and exams they are preparing towards.

  • What kind of results should I expect?
    expand_more

    In terms of academic scores, for students not already at the top of the range, we typically want to see at least a 20 percentile rank improvement (the actual raw score this translates to varies across the scale). Going from the 50th to 70th percentile or from the 70th to 90th typically opens up a whole new range of schools for students.
