World Literature (Grades 9-12)

World Literature explores how stories shape humanity and how humanity has shaped our stories. This full-year group tutorial covers time-honored classics of Western literature and polishes students’ literary analysis skills. Grammar and vocabulary are discussed in context.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, we will study The Iliad, Antigone, Don Quixote, Much Ado About Nothing, The Pilgrim’s Progress, The Inferno, and Les Miserables. Each novel is broken down incrementally to ensure complete understanding. Highlights and key points for each work are discussed in class. Students who prefer audio versions are welcome to use them.

The tutorial uses the flexible Google Classroom interface along with Zoom for live class meetings. World Literature will meet on Thursdays at 1 p.m. ET, beginning on August 20, 2020. The 2020-2021 Academic Calendar is available here.

The group tutorial price is $450 plus a $15 non-refundable registration fee. It meets weekly for 90 minutes over two 15-week semesters. The tutorial will run if at least five students enroll.
