My lesson plans are specific to the topic and the individual students' abilities, talents and interests. I have favorite materials and methods from my 7 years teaching. I devote hours of preparation for my lessons, particularly on research, also reviewing my resources from my teacher membership in educational websites.
I as an educator know that student engagement is the key to learning retention and having a great overall classroom experience. With changing times, education requires adaptation and evolution. Students are not as easily captivated as before by simple colorful animations in textbooks and monotonous songs to correlate with learned concepts.
I base my teaching on what my students need to learn.
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 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.
My approach to reaching is to make it as fun as possible! Start by breaking down each paragraph, sentence and word so you can focus on one thing at a time. To learn the rules of the language, use mneumonic devices- the sillier, the better! And remember, the English language is FULL of words that don't follow any rules at all. We can work together to find ways to remember them.
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 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).
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.
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 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 have experience with elementary and secondary students who have had negative learning experiences in the classroom and often have poor self esteem due to learning difficulties. My Psychology degree has provided me a deep understanding of principals of learning, motivation, behavior modification, etc. Small increments of success are cumulative.
I believe that if students are taught critical thinking in a skill based environment with annotation techniques, they will be able to tackle any standardized exam place before them and achieve. Therefore, I provide all areas of the learning styles method ie (visual, auditory, kinetic) as a way to address the type of learning the student prefers.
I hope to make fun an integral part of each of my lessons and tutoring sessions. My goal is to understand each of my students learning styles to adjust my lessons accordingly. I want to encourage confidence and passion in my students.
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.
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 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.
I have studied Teaching Methodologies and I am able to teach using various modalities. I begin my program with an observation of a student's learning style, and often use an eclectic teaching style. The most powerful tools are flexibility, listening and patience without judgement.
My teaching method is always student-centered. I use modeling to demonstrate the skills being taught and then the student practices the skills. I follow-up with constructive feedback but never in a harsh way. We continue until the student feels comfortable.
Recently I have been designing lessons based on the specific needs of each student. Whether they are getting ready to take one of the National Exams or just trying to spruce up their email style, I have given them problems and practice tests, complete with in-depth error analysis.
