I earned my BA in English Literature from Providence College in 1968. I hold a MEd from Boston University, a Master of Divinity from the Episcopal Divinity School and a Master of Theology from Boston College. In my tutoring, I try to build on a student's current strengths as a first step to improving their academic performance.
I try to approach learning in a dynamic and thoughtful way. I think that memorizing facts is a nearly useless activity. Instead, I believe that cultivating original thought and organizing those thoughts into solid writing is the best foundation for education.
I tutor English essay writing, literature, and reading comprehension. I operate through a disciplined framing of questions in conversation, such that the student is guided not towards the “answer”—but towards what it is they already know that will help them find the answer.
My teaching methodology is student-centered. I focus on inquiry-based learning where the "I dunno how" is re-generated into a strong, enthusiastic "Whaaat?! That's fascinating!" This approach encourages teachers and students to investigate why well-covered topics are relevant to our personal present.
I most often work with students who struggle to respond to writing prompts from their English classes. Literary analysis and arguments (researched or not researched) are my specialties, though not the only types of academic writing I can help with. My approach is collaborative.
I have a friendly hands-on approach that assesses a student's strengths and weaknesses and, through practice and review, help the student achieve goals. I have a good rapport with students of all ages and find that they want to learn.
I am a high school English teacher currently teaching 11th-12th grades. I teach British Literature, Mythology, AP Language, and Science Fiction, and also have past experience with 10th grade English and ESL. I believe it's important to get to know each student as an individual; no two people have the same needs as learners.
When it comes to writing papers or analyzing assigned reading, I like to break things up to make sure that the material is easy to understand. I do not just give out answers because I focus on helping a student come up with their own ideas or perspectives before we perfect them together.
Hello! My name is Bethany Dunn. I specialize in streamlining the writing process to be as straightforward, simple, and effective as possible and training students how to analyze their own writing and that of others. I have worked with all ages and academic levels, from developmental English and ENG 1301/1302 composition to advanced coursework and professional communication.
My teaching methodology is based on tailoring lessons to each individual learner's need. Each student learns differently and needs a slightly different approach. I am experienced at modifying curriculum to suite a learner's need, interest, and learning style.
I approach each topic with the intent to make learning exciting and fun. Keeping each student attention can difficult at times, especially after being in school all day and then has to attend a tutorial session with me. I make a game out of it with incentive prices after a couple of weeks of successful sessions with me.
I love the written language and all of its conventions yet share an equal interest in Literature taught as a record of mankind's experiences through our own voices--not the voices of textbook writers. However, my true passion is in secondary pedagogy. Flexible yet persistent, patient yet rigorous and with a meticulous and creative eye, I'm a well-rounded teacher.
My teaching method is to make sure the student's needs are being met. Before I begin working with a student, my desire is to understand what needs they have first to prevent from waisting time. After that is established and I know what is needed, my goal is to provide a structured but fun, successful learning environment.
My teaching uses story-telling to grab interest and dramatize material. Attractive visuals with PowerPoint and video are helpful. My talks involve asking students/audience members a lot of questions draw them out and evoke conversations that serve as springboards for material.
I like to tailor my methodology to each individual student. No two students learn the same way and, therefore, no two students are best served by the same methodology. I like to start off with inquiry-based assessments and continue asking my students questions and making them answer hypotheticals.
Students that come to me for tutoring have specific skills they need to improve. For that reason, I provide an individualized student-centered approach that aims to target areas of improvement and turn them into areas of strength. My goal is to provide students with strategies that will help them maintain their progress long after our lesson.
There is no one method. It depends on the age and maturity of the students. It also depends on their skill level and motivation. While it is sometimes helpful to make it as fun and engaging as possible, that would be inappropriate at other times, such as when teaching essay writing.
I am a sophomore English major and Honors student with experience as an assistant editor on my college literary journal. Over the summer, I co-taught a creative writing class for elementary and middle school students where I worked to provide the tools for learning, as well as structure and guidance.

I base my classes around the specific areas the student needs help in. I focus on getting to know what areas the student struggles in, and tailor a lesson from that information. I also focus on professional communication and educate students on how to write and speak in a more professional, polished, while still unique voice.
After getting to know a little about the student, I have the ability to develop a study plan that suits his learning style. Once the plan is in place, I can teach the student how to develop study habits that will improve his performance in the subject. I help the student build confidence and to have a positive attitude when it comes to learning something new instead of giving up.
I am highly interactive in my classroom and one on one teaching. I encourage questions and seek to adapt lessons to the students. My philosophy is "I teach students, not curriculum." Student success is what I seek.
I am very attentive to detail! I will help you pick apart an essay so that your tone is refined and your grammar is excellent. I prepare weekly writing activities and provide you with engaging practice prompts to perfect your writing.
My teaching method is based on listening to the student, hearing what their needs are and developing a plan to have them reach their goal. Everyone learns differently, hears things differently. My goal is to have my students work hard, while also finding joy in reaching their learning goals.
It's simple: My role is to access each person's needs and bring them to a place of greater understanding through customized tutoring. I'm not here to lecture; I'm here to teach you strategies to build your own skillset. I am patient and encouraging, and I will always focus first on what you are doing well.
I am a responsible and caring high school student with a knack for teaching. I strongly believe in adhereing to the different learnig types of children. I am a never give up type instrutor. I will do my best to make surebthe person i am instructing gets the topic in abway they understand.
I provide tutoring assistance, review papers, and provide necessary feedback as I love to write. Communication is important to me. Therefore, I ask that you be responsive whenever I send emails with questions, etc. I will always ask for your thoughts and will encourage you to participate. No, I will not do your homework for you. Lastly, I love to laugh.
I like to tailor my approach to the goals of the individual, but my methodology revolves around finding clarity through structure, while retaining the voice and creativity of the individual in their own writing.
I have a bachelor's focus in English with a minor concentration in Psychology. I offer tutoring and educational support to any student in the secondary range (5th grade through collegiate level) in every Language Arts topic/genre. I believe in impowering students to do their best work and find their own creativity. I am proficient in teaching MLA and APA style.
I take a student-centered approach and base lessons off of students' goals. I make lessons engaging, relevant, and exciting. I tailor classes for the individual needs and objectives of students. What do you want to learn? How do you want to improve? I strategically plan lessons that are aligned with student aspirations.
