I received both my BA in Natural Sciences and my PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Cambridge, UK. For every student I tutor I devise an individualized learning program which is designed to meet the student's specific needs and learning style. I am a full-time tutor and I devote a lot of energy into ensuring every student I teach reaches their full potential.
I base my teaching on what my students need to learn.
I base my lessons on individual need and learning styles and try my hardest to accommodate my lessons to the unique student that I am helping. My teaching methodology is student oriented. My approach to students is that each child is capable of learning and understanding. This just might happen at different levels.
i had trouble has a child with reading and hated books now with a BA in English i want to help someone else. I want to encourage and give confidence. I will apply my lessons from long ago. Or even enrich my own set of learning skills.
I enjoy working with students in grades K-8. I believe that all students are entitled to learn. Each child is unique and is at a different reading level. There is much to learn in life. I look forward to meeting you.
I teach clearly and thoroughly with patience and kindness. I instill confidence and teach accordingly to the type of student you are. I also work patiently with ADD and ADHD students. I simply love to teach and love the subject of reading.
I adapt instruction based upon curriculum-based assessments and address individual educational plans and goals to meet the needs of my students. I provide all students with a positive learning experience through verbal praise and encouragement in order to enhance self confidence in their abilities to learn new skills.

I base my tutoring methods on the individual needs of each student. I create a teaching plan based on these results. Once I am able to assess the students strengths and weaknesses. I am able to get them to the progress they need.
My teaching method is very hands on. I start by taking an interest survey to see what my student is interested in and what they find easy/difficult about the subject(s) I will be teaching them. This allows me to do two things. One, see what my students enjoy and like to learn about. Two, it tells me what their confidence level in the subject at hand, and what they may need to work on.
I am a retired teacher/case manager and a Grandma. My grandchildren are the light of my life and I have always loved working with children. I enjoy camping, traveling, movies, reading, cooking, baking and most of all, my family. I Graduated from WSU River Falls with a Bachelor of Science degree (elementary ed. major and music minor).
I try to tailor my lessons to best fit students' individual learning styles, strengths, and interests. I like to work collaboratively with students and their families to ensure our lessons best reflect the students' needs with classwork, homework and tests.
Establishing a positive relationship with students is the foundation for productive learning sessions. Finding and building on student's strengths is the key to maximum success. Students learn best when they are motivated by stimulating lessons and hands on activities that keep them engaged.
My teaching methods will be based in part on diagnosis, in part via assessement of how well children can learn, strong and weak areas, teaching study skills and building on current strengths. Teaching methods are based around a variety of modalities (including Kinesthetic) and are solultion focused and aimed on positive growth.
I shape my teaching methods to each child, since every child is unique! I tutor elementary to middle school students, specializing in teaching ADHD and Autistic kids. I use techniques such as engaging in the child's interests and highlighting their strengths in order to improve the areas they need help in.
I believe that reading is the key to a successful life. I also believe that reading should be fun, and that students should be able to read about things that interest them. I follow a gradual release approach of I do, we do, you do, to build student confidence, while giving them ample space to grow.
In a classroom setting I strive to identify the learning style of all my students. I have used small group settings in Reading and Spelling based on student achievements and past grade level assessments. When teaching Title 1, a federally funded program for at-risk students in grades K-4, I met with a small group of 3-4 students or one on one student instruction.
I approach teaching through a student-centered approach. Every living thing on earth is unique and that definitely goes for my students. I start by briefly administering a learning styles inventory to establish learning modalities and individualized lesson planning based on strengths. My lessons are flexible and adaptable to every learning style and frustration level.
I love working with students with exceptional needs, great interpersonal skills. love to integrate your interest into the learning experience. Teaching experience pre-K - 8th grade (classes will be for pre-K to 3rd grade).
I have a Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education and I am in the process of persueing my masters degree. I hold a Missouri certification in grades 1-6 & K-12 Special Education. I am currently teaching at the 3rd-5th grade levels in a public school. I look forward to providing one-on-one online tutoring to elementary students needing some extra help.
I do a lot of interactive activities in my classroom in order to promote idea sharing and peer tutoring. I believe we have to be ACTIVELY ENGAGED (even as adult students) in order to retain and retrieve knowledge.
I base my teaching method on informal testing to determine skill level of my students. I also talk to parents to find out their goals for their children. I believe that learning can and should be fun, and I use a lot of teacher made manipulatives.
I teach each class with a multi-disciplinary and a multi-sensory approach to ensure all learners and learning types receive an appropriate lesson for maximum understanding. I have a structured approach in my lessons while maintaining the flexibility to capture unplanned teaching moments.
My teaching style demonstrates dedication to fostering a positive learning environment and maximizing individual student performance. I teach according to the learning style of the student, and I will incorporate other teaching styles to expand on the style of learning.
I use a balanced literacy model in my classroom including but not limited to interactive and shared reading, phonological awareness, guided reading, word knowledge, shared writing and more. I like to think of myself as organized and structured but laid back. I have high expectations for all of my students.
Hello, I’m a 30 y/o college graduate and I took all AP classes in high school. I will teach ANYONE who needs help up to college level (unless it’s more advanced material than I can do) lol I will never charge you if I know up front that I can’t help you out bc I don’t understand the material. If I can help you though you will get 100% of my focus and effort.
As a licensed and highly-qualified Exceptional Children’s teacher with ten years of teaching experience in the field of Special Education, I have a passion for creating and implementing intervention strategies for students with exceptional needs and diverse learning styles.
I begin by getting to know the students that I'm working with and how they learn best. I utilize their learning styles to craft lessons that will meet their needs. When introducing a new topic or skill, I usually start with a hands-on activity as a hook to excite students about their new learning.
My teaching method is based on each individual student and their needs. Everything is approached with calm and patience, along with happy enthusiasm to engage the child and shine a positive light on learning. I like to learn a bit about the student and I share appropriately about myself in order to establish a trusting and comfortable relationship.
As I entered the study area at Tutor Topia, I put the fresh fruit in the mini frig. I asked the girls to select a book of their choice in their grade level. After they read, I asked them to take their Composition Books to write in their OWN words what they had read. I asked them to PROOFREAD their work before I corrected what they comprehended.
