I am to work with students closely in order to provide them with knowledge that will be useful to them throughout their lives. My focus is on giving students needed skills, as well as improving their critical thinking skills so they can help themselves in the future.
My method is to improve skills by focusing on areas of greatest weakness. In writing, I use individual conferencing. In reading, I teach fluent efficiency. In poetry, I use the workshop method. In test preparation, practice tests help the most.
My teaching methodology is dependent on the needs of the student - be it an essay on Jane Eyre or an upcoming SAT - but I strive to give my students specific, easy-to-remember rules that help motivate them to write, eliminate the fear of writing, and unlock their creative potential in the essay format.
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 am currently a second year English student at the University of Georgia. I offer tutoring in essay writing, reading comprehension, and critical thinking skills for middle school and high school students. I am available via Skype, or in person for families in the Athens-Clarke County Area.
I have a very particular reading comprehension and writing process that I have developed over the years. It can work for anything from a Comparative Lit paper to a full blown thesis to a one page resume. I focus on flow, keeping the reader engaged, with an emphasis on strong beginning and ending paragraphs.
Since I have my master's degree I prefer to teach higher level students like AP high school, dual credit students, early college high school, or college-level students. I prepare lectures based on readings, reading assignments, short quizzes on the reading assignments, and I prefer to have short discussions at the beginning and end of class about the current and future reading assignments.
Most of my experience teaching others is on a one on one basis with me critiquing a student's writing and showing him or her, by personal example, the skills and rules required for good writing for a variety of end uses.
I am an Elementary Education major at the University of West Florida who anticipates graduation in 2018. I tutor in all aspects of Language Arts including Reading, Literature and Phonics and basic Elementary Math. Two one hour lessons given per week.
I am a writer and editor currently working towards my bachelor's degree in English at the University of Colorado Denver. I have over 5 years of experience tutoring and editing the work of both high school and college students at the undergraduate and graduate levels in such subjects as English, writing, mythology, literature, and other liberal arts-related courses.
It depends on the situation. If a student is a beginner or is struggling, of course I would scaffold and make sure the student has all of information necessary not only to move forward, but to move upward! The more advanced a student is the faster we can move and the deeper we can to into a subject, but if there is one thing i have - a HUGE abundance of it's PATIENCE.
My teaching method is based on patient attention to individual needs. I offer support and mentoring. Course instruction includes creative assignments, emphasizing interaction among students and with me. I do not rely on strict lecturing nor on grading without extensive feedback to students.
My method is to bring literature to life and applicable to each student's life. I help students find their voices to enable them to express their thoughts and reactions to the world around them, as well as to articulate their responses, thoughts, and views so as to persuade, explain, and define themselves.
Feedback is essential for improvement, regardless of a student's age or education level, especially for writing and speaking. I assign different types of rhetorical modes or essays designed to increase both critical thinking and communication skills. As an author of both academic and non-academic work, I understand the appropriate requirements for each.
My teaching method is student centered. The more talking you're doing (asking and answering questions) the more you are learning! I start my lessons with a pre-assessment followed by a quick review. Then we learn how to use new tools and frameworks to create stronger reading and writing skills. I will offer as much modeling as you need.
Typically, I give lessons to undergraduate college students (mostly Freshmen and Sophomores), but I have occasionally helped High School students and graduate students with writing assignments. Regardless of student age or education level, however, my teaching method always involves brainstorming and asking critical questions.
I teach college-level courses using a seminar-discussion method which balances my lectures with class discussion and individual and group learning. I prefer to teach from notes and respond to student questions as part of the education experience. I like to involve students in hands-on and thinking projects to stimulate original ideas and questions.
I have been a teacher across middle school to college level for over 7 years. I have a Master's Degree in English Language and Literature and a great knowledge of standards and college readiness.
History is often difficult for students to grasp because it usually understood by students as a pack of random facts that need to be memorized. History is best taught in contextualized form, where the student understands everything that happened, and how each person or event affected the others. History can be a memorable story.
My teaching method is very learner-centered and includes experiential and arts-based learning. I believe that learning should be fun and accessible and not boring. I want to make the learning relevant by making it meaningful to each student.
My favorite professors and teachers made class-time into discussions. Students contribute rather than sitting quietly and merely listening to a lecture. If I were to teach or tutor a student, my style of instruction would be conversational, but pointed.
I am aware that professors require quality work and I aspire to provide a custom essay that is unique and detailed. Thorough research is paramount for all of my essays, as I have realized that this is the most important aspect of an essay. Additionally, the essays that I present to my clients are free of grammatical errors and are correctly formatted.
When tutoring, I take time to assess the areas that need improvement and personalize my lessons to each student's specific area of struggle. This way, lessons can be productive, effective, and focused solely on what the student needs. I am also a strong believer that fun and patience are the keystones for any good tutor! When you put fun into learning, it no longer becomes work.
