I dismiss my students by saying "go make mistakes". I believe that students are taught to adhere to social norms thus causing them to suppress their voice. Making mistakes provides opportunities for self-exploration and growth. During my time as a teaching assistant and public speaking instructor, I have found that students are typically driven by grades.
I view reading and writing as a complex set of skills encompassing everything from spelling and phonetics to critical analysis. Reading and writing are skills that can always be further developed - I become a better reader every time I practice and it is my goal to help you do the same. I provide tutoring in reading and writing for students grades 4-12 and adult English Language Learners.
I am an experienced social science instructor and adult education facilitator/trainer. I have performed conflict resolution, lectured, and evaluated adult, nontraditional students; traditional graduate and undergraduate students in addition to creating, facilitating and updating public policy, political science and social science courses.
I've worked primarily with undergraduate and graduate students. I believe that every student is different and every session will be different. Therefore, I believe in approaching each student in a way that they believe will work for them. It's important for the tutor to ask questions just as it is important for the student to ask questions.
I like to gauge my students learning styles by having them express their preferences. Some students will hear something once and learn it right away, while others may need 5 examples, a hands-on scenario, and reading material to fully grasp the learning. The more honest the student is about his/her needs and areas of difficulty, the better I can support his/her learning style to ensure success.
I am a final-year PhD student from the UK, with two teaching certifications (PDHEP and Cambridge CELTA). I teach using a method called 'guided discovery': in other words, minimising me talking at you, and maximising problem-solving through an exploration of the issues that you specify.
My general area of research is in teaching French and Francophone literature and grammar in a second language context to adults but I have also a four year experience in teaching French as a foreign language and a seven year experience in teaching techniques of expression including rhetoric and communication. No annoyance in the classroom, neither for the students, nor for the teacher.
A B.A. in English and Masters of Library Science do not explain why I excel as a tutor: it is because I have deep experience as a writer and editor, plus experience teaching and tutoring. I know the subject and I know the students.
I have lots of experience teaching high school and university students, as well as adults learners. My PhD is in Comparative Literature from the University of Chicago. I focus on critical thinking skills and the ability to write clearly. Working together will be both challenging and fun. You can be sure you'll also get your money's worth.
I have Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a Masters degree in Reading Specialist. I am currently an English as a Second Language teacher in an elementary school in the suburbs. I am hoping to help students with their college application essays and scholarship essays.
I have taught at four different Illinois colleges. In addition, I have taught as a Tutor, Substitute Teacher, Tour Guide, Resume and Cover Letter Job Search Coach. My diverse career enables me to teach effectively with everyone.
I am currently an Adjunct Professor teaching Speech Communications at the City Colleges of Chicago. In 2011, I began as teaching in the Communications Department as a Teaching Assistant. In August of 2012, I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Communication and Training and have been continuously employed with the institution since that time.
