The course will cover grammar and writing conventions, and students will be required to practice writing one essay during each class session and another essay between sessions at home. The instructor will provide students with individualized feedback designed to help each student to improve his/her writing skills. Students will also spend considerable time reading non-fiction passages to prepare for the verbal section. The teachers teaching TJ prep. in spring will continue teaching TJ prep. during the summer. The course will cover:
ACT Aspire reading comprehension

Instruction will focus on the students’s specific mistakes and deficiencies, and the lessons will be tailored to the participants.
