Research in the field of Rhetoric and Composition overwhelming indicates that the level of confidence a writer has in their own writing is the greatest indicator of success and the most reliable factor in determining the quality and merit of the writing at hand. I tutor writers with this research as my guiding philosophy and have found that it is remarkably accurate.
I tailor feedback to your writing strengths and challenges. You send me your paper, expressing your concerns and areas of weakness. I give feedback in these areas and general feedback. My comments are thorough, specific, and specialized to your situation.
I believe in building a rapport with my students. This puts them at ease and makes tutoring so much easier, since they aren’t stressed or nervous. I find that I have a lot of similar interests as my students which allows us to bond.
My teaching methodology is based the development of four keys to sucess. Helping students form positive academic habits. The use of positive suggestion. Sharing and promoting enthusiasm. Lastly the encouragment of curiosity. These are the four basic tenets of my teaching methodology.
My teaching methodology is student-centered. I focus on inquiry-based learning where the "I dunno how" is re-generated into a strong, enthusiastic "Whaaat?! That's fascinating!" This approach encourages teachers and students to investigate why well-covered topics are relevant to our personal present.
I believe wholeheartedly that my role as your tutor is to empower you to not need me! I will provide you with the background knowledge and tools you need to walk away from our lesson feeling confident enough to teach the information yourself. I was a student who needed the "why" before I could commit a lesson to memory, and I teach along that same vein.
I am patient, creative and friendly. Many of my students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. In addition to teaching in person, I also use Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Appear.in, interactive whiteboards, attachments (PDF, Word, Excel), and Slack, a remote desktop program.
My teaching style is skill-based. In my teaching, I get the most out of students by emphasizing how each subject builds and develops useful skills - skills that will prove valuable to students in both their academic and professional lives.
Each student has unique needs and I try to focus my sessions on meeting those specific needs in a thorough yet encouraging manner. I teach a wide distribution of levels from Junior High through Graduate School. Over the years, I have taught a number of students for whom English was not their first language.
Listening is a part of learning, and that goes for instructors, too. I listen to the needs of my students, and then ask them questions to help them map out their issues better.
First, and most importantly, I believe in making learning FUN! We remember things we enjoy! I like to always have a clear understanding of the needs of the learner. I will talk to students about the areas of frustration, and also the parents (when possible for younger learners) to get as much information as possible.
After receiving my help, all my former students received either an "A" in the subject they were struggling with or boosted their grade by at least 2 grade levels. I have also helped students earn admission to the colleges of their choice by assisting with admissions essays.
I most often work with students who struggle to respond to writing prompts from their English classes. Literary analysis and arguments (researched or not researched) are my specialties, though not the only types of academic writing I can help with. My approach is collaborative.
I am committed to delivering high-quality, individualized instruction. For tutoring in reading and writing, I assess students and then create informed lessons to best help them improve their skills. I include phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension, spelling, and vocabulary in reading lessons for struggling readers in elementary school.
Using the principles of observation and inquiry, I lead you to your own best ideas and help you express them so that what's on the page matches the vision in your imagination. I help you cultivate creativity and analytical skills.
I teach transformative education and experiential learning to young adults and professionals, as well as theories and practices related to phenomenology and hermeneutics. I edit and grade academic papers according to professionalism and academic formatting. I am fun and fair.
I give exciting instruction in multiple disciplines with emphasis on English and language disciplines, to all who seek help: grade school, high school, and into undergraduate study. I can teach in any style from casual and friendly to more structured and formal. I am adaptable and flexible so I can modify my teaching style to your needs and to the way you learn.
I believe that literature and writing are first and foremost supposed to be fun! Even with less exciting subjects like grammar and test prep, I still try to bring a down to earth attitude and a sense of humor. I'm particularly familiar with homeschooling and classical education, but I'm adaptable and will adjust to the needs of your student.
I use a variety of teaching methods, depending on student's learning style, level of progress, and his/her preferred strategies and activities--most important are ways to motivate and inspire each student according to his/her special talents and interests. I have taught all levels from Middle School to Ph.D. students and adult lifelong learners.
I have a friendly hands-on approach that assesses a student's strengths and weaknesses and, through practice and review, help the student achieve goals. I have a good rapport with students of all ages and find that they want to learn.
Hello fellow students! I feel we are all always learning, including teachers. My name is Randee and I love to teach. I currently work with Title 1 students tutoring in Reading and Math (ages Kindergarten-5th grade). I graduated from Eckerd College. I would say my philosophy on teaching is that every student learns differently.
My teaching methodology is very personal to each student! I, first, lay out the client's goals, their learning style, and their current experience to cultivate an experience and lesson plan for them. I am a very motivational tutor that can help a student succeed.
My teaching method is hands-on and interactive. I like to use games to help a child learn, as well as diagrams, real-life examples and to correlate the knowledge with something the individual student can relate to in order to help their interest/understanding.
I base my classes on the Lesson Plan to be followed and own and shared knowledge of the world with the students: to associate what they are learning with the world. I try to make students communicate in the best possible way, with patience and once the pattern is established, I give them the opportunity to express themselves.
I always adapt my teaching method to the student and context. I believe in meeting individual students at the level they've already achieved and affirming, naming and congratulating them on their current skills sets. I present myself as a compassionate co-learner who just so happens to have the knowledge the student needs.
I am highly motivated and enthusiastic and teach in a passionate and practical way. I love to see students excel in confidence and content knowledge. I am patient and will meet you where you are at. Through tutoring, we will explore your learning style and exploit your strengths to be successful.
I approach each lesson by first allowing the student to explain what they already know and what they expect to learn. From there, I design a customized plan based on the student's specific needs. I try to engage students and make sure their questions are answered sufficiently by the end of the lesson.
My teaching method is interactive. I use lessons and activities to get the student engaged and active in their learning. I willing to cater any lesson to the subject or students best learning strategy. I am always willing to come work with the student and help them be confident in their learning and work.
My teaching method is to make sure the student's needs are being met. Before I begin working with a student, my desire is to understand what needs they have first to prevent from waisting time. After that is established and I know what is needed, my goal is to provide a structured but fun, successful learning environment.
My teaching uses story-telling to grab interest and dramatize material. Attractive visuals with PowerPoint and video are helpful. My talks involve asking students/audience members a lot of questions draw them out and evoke conversations that serve as springboards for material.
