As an MA in Linguistics, I teach high school students, college students and adults through a combination of dialogue and hands-on activities. My lessons are a conversation rather than a lecture. I teach through a combination of kinesthetic, visual, and auditory methods.
My teaching methodology is very inclusive. I have taught all levels (Kindergarden-adult) and have taught ESL students and students with disabilities. I am an artist so I use creative methods such as visualizations, storytelling, and improvisation to teach English/Writing. I am interested in collaborative learning so I learn as much from the student as they learn from me.
My teaching methodology is dependent on the needs of the student - be it an essay on Jane Eyre or an upcoming SAT - but I strive to give my students specific, easy-to-remember rules that help motivate them to write, eliminate the fear of writing, and unlock their creative potential in the essay format.
I employ an fast-paced, upbeat approach that guarantees an improved grasp of the subject matter and a greater confidence in approaching every writing. Many students who struggle with writing fear even getting started. My hands-on approach is designed to motivate students to write with confidence.
My teaching method is based on encouragement, accuracy, and deadline punctuality. It often helps to return to a difficult subject and repeat exercises in the area of that difficulty. It is important for questions from student(s) to make sure that each assignment begins and continues with clarity.
I am a writer with an MFA in fiction writing from Brooklyn College and a BA in History. From Rutgers University. I spent my junior year abroad at Trinity College and I have a teaching certificate from Depaul University in Chicago.
My expertise is in successful resume writing. In today's fast paced quick read environment keywords, short concise experience items are the key to writing a successful resume. Having 35 years of marketing copy writing experience going back to the basics of short concise sentence is still the fool proof way to write anything from a resume to a thank you note.
I approach each topic with enthusiasm and patience. I'm a very friendly and welcoming presence, and I always make sure to adapt each lesson to the particular student at hand. I enjoy working both with younger students and older students looking for feedback on essays.
My teaching philosophy is based on my belief that we learn by doing. This has proven most effective in the teaching of writing. We become good writers by reading, analyzing, and imitating in our own distinctive way. To communicate this view to my students, I practice a subjective approach to Composition derived in part from the Reader Response Theory.
I like to gauge my students learning styles by having them express their preferences. Some students will hear something once and learn it right away, while others may need 5 examples, a hands-on scenario, and reading material to fully grasp the learning. The more honest the student is about his/her needs and areas of difficulty, the better I can support his/her learning style to ensure success.
My name is Rebecca Grober. I have been teaching English/Language Arts and Social Studies at the Middle and High School levels for over 20 years. In addition, I have tutored students privately. I pride myself on being a successful educator by quickly identifying and analyzing the needs of my students.
I base my tutoring on what my student wants to get out of the lesson. I try to pinpoint the areas that the student needs the most help on and focus on that. The areas the student knows already we can review.
My teaching methods include Flashcards and fun vocabulary games such as bingo. I base my classes on English Vocabulary.
I will collaborate with students, and or the school staff members, parents to assess the student’s needs and how best to address them. I will work with all academic grade level, job preparation, and life experiences. I have the ability to any persons heart in the most professional , not forgetting a home life experience. Open schedule and your preferred area of learning.
I have my master in education with a focus on information literacy. This degree (MSEd: Instructional technology) and State of Illinois Certification (LIS) enables me to help students of all ages learn how to search for, evaluate, and share information. I also have a minor in English, so I am able to teach effective writing skills, as well as grammar, literature and literary argument.

I've worked with students in grade 4 through the Ph.D. level, and I'm always happy to work with anyone who wants to be a stronger writer. I think my job as a tutor is to help students think through problems or frustrations and come to their own solutions - I usually do a lot of asking questions and understanding what the student's own goals for his/her paper are.
I have a Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree from the University of Illinois and Chicago, and I'm certified to teach grades 6-12 English Language Arts.

I've worked primarily with undergraduate and graduate students. I believe that every student is different and every session will be different. Therefore, I believe in approaching each student in a way that they believe will work for them. It's important for the tutor to ask questions just as it is important for the student to ask questions.
I am a qualified teacher of foreign languages - English, German, French, Danish, Ukrainian, and Russian. I am Master of education, a linguist, and polyglot.

I have a Masters in English and have 20+ years classroom experience teaching high school and college students.

The English language becomes easier when you understand how it actually works.
BA (Deans List) in English Literature from Depaul University, current MA Student of Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Chicago. I offer intensive and in-depth tutoring in English, World History, and World Literature. I rely more on a personalized and critical approach than rote memorization; I want to communicate the WHY rather than the WHAT to my students.
My love of tutoring comes from the thrill I receive upon seeing a child on their way to success. I love sharing the knowledge I have acquired over my school days, as well as the knowledge I am still acquiring at university. Learning is one of the most joyful experiences in life, and there is absolutely nothing like treasuring a new piece of knowledge.
Hello there, my name is Walla. I'm an Early Childhood Education Teacher. I'm a per-school teacher. I'm also an ESL teacher. I just got my bachelors degree in Interdisciplinary Studies of Arts with an ESL minor. I'm fluent in English and Arabic. I'm welling to help anyone with homework, resume, essays, and anything else you need.
As primarily a college instructor, my teaching method is largely student-oriented, with an emphasis on discussion, workshop and practice. My objective is to meet my students on their level and guide rather than instruct in order to improve upon existing skills.
I have been tutored and taught in a number of different ways, and have adapted to create my own style of teaching based on what I've experienced. I take an initial soft approach to understand what my student is exactly struggling with, and what seems to be holding them back.
I graduated from Kelley School of Business at Indiana University Bloomington with a major in finance. I am hoping to help out students who need help in math, english or LSAT prep. I scored in the 99th percentile for my LSAT.
