Rory is a math whiz who enjoys helping his friends complete difficult equations on their homework assignments. His sharp thinking and happy-go-lucky nature also helps him in his role as a young swimmer. Since he takes his sportsmanship seriously and trains everyday, Rory's parents decided to enroll him in an online high school that will focus on his personalized education as he completes the rest of his studies.

The number one subject that challenges Rory in school is English, as he's not a book lover and isn't confident about his essay writing skills (we're here to help with that). As a result, his vocabulary skills suffered until his Personalized Education Coach suggested downloading some applications that would strengthen his vocabulary. Take a look at some sources that are beneficial to students who have trouble in this area.
