I tutor by attempting to work myself out of a job. I know that people learn by connecting new novel information to information that they already understand. I teach through finding what it is that someone knows and trying to figure out the disconnect between what they know and what they don't. I focus on helping them understand the disconnect as a means of learning how to learn.
My teaching method is based on a blend of communicative approach and real-life interaction. It uses drama techniques that help with pronunciation and accent reduction and explains grammar and idioms in context so as to fix major notions like a native.
I base my courses entirely off of the student's main goals. I can tackle more classical approaches, modern curriculum, learning for hobby's sake and everything in between. That's not to mention that I will bring in outside knowledge to broaden their horizons as well to make them a more well-rounded player.
I base my lessons on the student's goals. From there, as I get to know them, we start by gaining a solid grip of fundamental English grammar laws, then leveraging them to allow the student's authentic voice to shine through in their writing.
I can work with students on any level. I base my lessons on what you need most. First, I find out what you know and are comfortable with and then I build from that helping you to think about the subject matter effortlessly.

Teach Mississippi Institute, Kelly Educational Staffing, Wyzant, and my own past as a student are a wealth of experience that I utilize when disseminating information in lessons to students. My students are anyone seeking academic improvement. I augment classroom lessons furthering what is brief in the day to a detailed explanation.
B.A. Loyola New Orleans. 30 years experience in highly successful Sales and Sales Management. Started my own Sales Representation and Management Firm in 1992. Retired at age 53 but still advise occasionally. I have time to instruct only serious individuals.
I am a retired French and Spanish teacher. My lessons include basic conversation, grammar, reading and writing. Instruction is adapted to accommodate individual needs, such as conversation for traveling, social and business situations, test preparation, or homework help. You can choose lessons in person in the New Orleans area or online.
Obviously, we will address your personal goals first and foremost.
I am fairly laid back, but expect focus and concentration when delivering a lesson to a whole class or working with a student one-on-one. I have worked with students of all ages. I figure out what makes each person tick and use that to help them learn.
I love giving back to the youth of New Orleans. Teaching for me has become about so much more than achievement and test scores. When my scholars leave my classroom to move on to the next grade, they leave with a sense of identify and understanding of what it takes to be a contributing citizen in their neighborhoods, city, state, and country.
My style of teaching involves giving a short lecture about the fundamentals of the topic, then gradually covering advanced topics. I continuously question my students in order to help them reach the answers themselves and to make sure that they are keeping up with the material.
My teaching method promotes self-learning and critical thinking. I allow students to integrate their own passions into common core topics. This integration keeps students enthusiastic about broadening their personal knowledge. Helpful composition critique and literary analysis conversation are central.
I am open to giving lessons to anybody willing to dedicate time to learning something new. I am a very visual person, so I will be using a lot of graphics, detailed power points, and a variety of other methods to instruct.
Experience has shown me that a great teacher serves as a facilitator--not a smart device spitting out answers. It may take different periods of time, multiple modes of learning, various texts, Socratic conversations, etc., but every student can definitely succeed. When a student learns the different paths to figuring things out, they use those tools in every setting (not just for one assignment).
Because I do not only teach spanish to foreign students, but I am also a playwright, director, actress and "Oral expression" teacher, my classes are super interactive and fun, I believe that in order to learn in a healthy way students must enjoy the process.
I provide lessons to students of all ages and levels. My lessons are based on real-world application. My goal is for each student to be able to use their knowledge of Spanish on a day-to-day basis. Lessons are created specifically to fit each student's personal learning style.
I am currently studying at The International High School of New Orleans and am hoping to practice medicine in Britain. I am currently a high school sophomore taking honorary junior classes. I have gotten perfect scores for my detailed and thoughtful essays whether it be persuasive or a literary analysis piece.
I am currently a sophomore at Xavier University of Louisiana. I major in Music, with a minor in Education.
I am a School Counselor who has experience with both middle school and high school students. I have also taught online Psychology lessons at the Associates degree level. So, I have experience working with all age groups and in multiple formats; I can individualize my approach and my lesson format to help each student be successful.
I help students with classes they are currently in, reviewing presented material to be able to master it as best as possible.
I believe that learning should be both fun and structured. My teaching philosophy is that no one should ever feel stupid when they are trying their hardest to grasp a concept and learn something difficult. I also recognize that people are good at different things and it is essential not to patronize learners.
My main goal is to keep my students engaged and motivated. I try to keep classes as fun and dynamic as possible and give my students the opportunity to practice speaking as much as possible. I believe the best way to learn a language is to practice and I do my best to mix grammar and vocabulary lessons with fun speaking or reading activities.
My teaching method is project based. While I will absolutely prepare engaging lecture/presentation of lessons, the real heartbeat of learning this craft is by jumping in! I will facilitate your learning using a hands-on approach coupled with an on going conversation about not only the technical skills of photography, but also the subjective nature of the medium and how best utilize it.
My teaching method is based on my experience. I believe it is important to show students that it is okay to make mistakes as long as they learn from them. Also that all students should have equal opportunities to get the best education possible. I want to make sure that my students are getting the right education while having the best possible time.
I am a yogi and educator with a background in health education and behavior change. I have experience working with young people and adults in classrooms and on the mat. As a native Spanish speaker, originally from the Dominican Republic, I love to share my culture and the Spanish language with students.
I use tools like writing and critical thinking and questioning to engage students in conversations. I think it's important to encourage creativity and focus and use meditation and breath work to set a relaxing environment. I enjoy working with students of different ages and backgrounds.
My teaching method varies by student. Education is adaptable! Some students work best having lessons first and working after, some prefer to work on their own first and come to me for corrections. Some learn by seeing, some by hearing, some by doing, and some by a combination.
I believe that academic success is possible for all students, no matter what their background. Specifically with math courses, there are three key elements. First, I work on securing the foundation of basic arithmetic skills: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Second, I push for my students to understand the concepts rather than just the methods.

Perfect! Ms. Léna is a wonderful teacher! She gives very clear advice and is a kind person. I not only felt like I was getting quality teaching from someone who really knows her technique, but also like I was spending time with a friend I could laugh with....
