English Department Classes

Each tutor in the English Department holds undergraduate/post-graduate work in English or Education, with a median level of seventeen years’ teaching experience.

Small class sizes allow for instruction tailored to the students’ needs.  Students should expect to spend 1-1½ hours of course work per day, four days a week.

While each course covers all areas of English instruction, students have the opportunity to focus on those topics that meet with their personal educational goals. We offer classes that concentrate on the formal writing process, creative writing, grammar, or literature.

All high school courses meet TN state standards for high school graduation.
