BA in Elementary Education, MA in Theatre Education. Experienced in primary grades in reading, writing and math. One on one helps bring the reading level to grade and more. I use the three modalities of learning: visual, aural, and kinsthetic.
My teaching philosophy is that every student learns differently and has different needs. This is why I don't believe in a one size fits all teaching method. I asses each student and create a lesson plan based on their needs and the subject matter being taught. I have found from my years of teaching that this methodology is what works best.
Instruction in the "Great Hearts" teaching philosophy. Primary sources (both books and short material) with guided Socratic discussion following the reading. Books covered might include Huck Finn, My Antonia, The Great Gatsby, Walden, The Grapes of Wrath, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, The Federalist Papers.
My degree in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics gives me the unique ability to help my students approach every aspect of the humanities as part of a whole, enabling them to both retain networks of information more easily and grow as critical thinkers. I love the diversity in how my students think, and finding the best way to make learning rewarding for each one.
Writing is not something you are either born "good" or "bad" at. It is a skill. It is a set of tools. If you have a hammer, it might be easy to hang a picture, but just a hammer won't cut a board in half. Writing is the same way, you may have the tools to write a great narrative, but just narration won't create a killer essay.

My teaching method is very hands on. I like to read the work together and get the students take on what it means and then try to see what was going on in that time of history to try and get a better grasp on the literature itself.
My teaching method is to help students find their own strengths and their writing voice. Each person has a unique voice in their writing style and mastering that is key to successful English papers.

Hello! I am currently a college student finishing up my BA with a major in English and minor in history while being in the secondary education program; to put it shortly, I'm two classes away from being an English and/or history teacher for 7-12th grade! Teaching is my passion and I love helping students explore their interests in the subjects I hold closest to my heart.
The study and interpretation of literature should be an opportunity to foster intellectual curiosity, sharpen critical thinking, and expand one's capacity for empathy through speculative discussion and writing exercises that are anchored in the details of the literary text.

When it comes to teaching and tutoring English, I generally adopt a Socratic approach. This back and forth, in which the tutor maintains an intense discussion with the student, allows that student to come to their own conclusions about difficult works, and to communicate those conclusions in clear, articulate responses.
My teaching methodology is individualized and tailored to meet each student's needs. With over twenty years of teaching and tutoring experience under my belt, I know that starting where the student is and moving forward from there guarantees the best results. For instance, learning how to write an Introduction, Thesis Statement and Outline are the building blocks of any essay, regardless of topic.
Each lesson would first review the previous lesson to ensure the student is understanding. Once both myself and the student are confident in their comprehension, we will move on. I want to create an experience that is both educational and enjoyable.
My junior year English teacher inspired me to go on to study and teach English. There is an entire world to discover in the pages of literature. My undergraduate degree is in English Literature and my graduate degree is in counseling. My style of teaching is to be conversational and contemplative. Lectures will involve both. When analyzing literature or poetry, there is a need to sit with the text.
Using my own interdisciplinary discussion-focused curriculum, and texts such as Aristotle’s Poetics, students and I discuss word connotation, etymology and French/Latin/Greek roots, grammar, and conceptual structure in order to expand their understanding of language and writing. Students will take away a new confidence in their writing and expanded expertise.
I simplify, engage and build, to make academic English and University-level poetry and literature relevant and accessible to students with learning disabilities or students from non-humanities backgrounds.
My teaching method involves many different lessons plans each covering what to expect and how to prepare for any test. I have helped people achieve A's on academic tests as well as have students receive high scores on the SAT. As always I do this for the student(s) that I am teaching and can alter my teaching method based on what the student feels would help the most in order for them to succeed.
I like to take each student, assess their needs and build my lessons around their most critical needs first. The student-centered approach is where I am able to coach and facilitate student learning and overall comprehension of material, and to measure student learning through both formal and informal forms of assessment, like group projects, student portfolios, and class participation.
Writing is an crucial skill in any field. No matter what you do, you have to be able to communicate to others why it matters. I approach my writing lessons by finding out how writing applies to your interests.
