New Jersey English Tutor & Workshop Classes with the Scholar Tree

Is your child struggling with their English skills ? Or do you want your child to excel in ELA ? Well then our English Tutoring & Lessons are perfect for you.

English Tutoring Lessons Here at Scholar Tree, we have carefully designed the perfect ELA (English Language Arts) program to help your child develop their English reading and writing skills.

Concentrating on contemporary English & American development

To help bring the most out in your child we have categorized our ELA / English Program into 4 main categories. These categories include reading, writing, word study and test prep.

Our approach to English Curriculum

We focus on four disciplines during English workshops & tutoring sessions.

  • Reading – No matter what grade your child is in, we have suitable materials for every reading level. As part of developing your child’s reading skills, we will touch upon a number of topics to ensure they have a full understanding of reading.
  • Writing – We look at creating creative and formal written works in a professional way
  • Word Study – We expose the students to the 3 layers of English Orthography : alphabet, patterns and meaning along with the developmental approach to the teaching of phonics, spelling and vocabulary
  • Test Preparation – Our exam prep sessions are ideal for students with upcoming tests

Read on to learn about this curriculum further below.


While we cover a number of topics within this module we make sure we give your child a comprehensive breakdown of the following: Comparison between texts Passages and Graphic Informational Passages Narratives As well as our main topics we also cover the following area briefly to make sure you child is ready for anything.


Our innovative curriculum and teaching approach helps your child in developing a creative and structural writing skill set. It helps to strengthen their skills in producing clear and coherent writing for a range of discipline specific tasks, purposes and audiences.

Word Study

Our word study program has been carefully developed to accompany our reading and writing classes. In word study, your child will work with a group of students on a number of different tasks. Each group will receive a selection of word patterns that they have to work together so they can decode them. These word patterns have been developed to help your child distinguish, recognize and identify different English syntax.

Exam Preparation

As part of our English lessons and tutoring sessions, we help your child prepare for their exams by giving them a number of practice tests. As well as doing a number of practice tests we also have an “End of Course” of test that is very important for students to achieve a desired course grade/GPA. We also help with preparation for PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers), so your child can stay on top of their academic progress and eventually succeed in Advanced Placement (AP) or Honors courses.

English Language

We cover many aspects of the English Language during our lessons, and use the opportunity to assess your child’s needs. We then come up with a bespoke plan to help instigate development and improve overall comprehension of English.

English Literature

Throughout the school year children read iconic books throughout class. Some are commonplace, such as “Of Mice and Men”, others are less well known. We like to go over these books during The Scholar Tree and see if we can provide any assistance with learning.

We also talk and teach using short fictional works and stories that are often fun & educational.

Topics Covered by The Scholar Tree English Program

We ensure we give your child all the information they are going to need to excel.

Written & spoken vocabulary

We find that one of the most important English skills is not covered enough (or at all) in education. This is the ability to articulate your thoughts, feelings and ideas onto paper or into verbal form.

This core life skill is something we try to develop in all students, so they can properly express themselves through communication both spoken and written down.
