I tailor feedback to your writing strengths and challenges. You send me your paper, expressing your concerns and areas of weakness. I give feedback in these areas and general feedback. My comments are thorough, specific, and specialized to your situation.
Research in the field of Rhetoric and Composition overwhelming indicates that the level of confidence a writer has in their own writing is the greatest indicator of success and the most reliable factor in determining the quality and merit of the writing at hand. I tutor writers with this research as my guiding philosophy and have found that it is remarkably accurate.
I am patient, creative and friendly. Many of my students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. In addition to teaching in person, I also use Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Appear.in, interactive whiteboards, attachments (PDF, Word, Excel), and Slack, a remote desktop program.
I believe wholeheartedly that my role as your tutor is to empower you to not need me! I will provide you with the background knowledge and tools you need to walk away from our lesson feeling confident enough to teach the information yourself. I was a student who needed the "why" before I could commit a lesson to memory, and I teach along that same vein.
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.
Good writers participate in an on-going conversation about what good writing is. I use well-designed exercises, constructive conversation, development of a rhetorical and critical vocabulary, and careful examination of your own essays to improve your grasp of writing as a skill and artform that you can apply to your own academic writing projects.
My teaching style is skill-based. In my teaching, I get the most out of students by emphasizing how each subject builds and develops useful skills - skills that will prove valuable to students in both their academic and professional lives.
Initially, I like to get to know my students so that I can tailor their needs to the approach I take. Feedback from students is crucial; getting to know what they are comfortable with and what they may feel self-conscious about in their academic skills allows me to focus on building on weaknesses and encouraging strengths.
Listening is a part of learning, and that goes for instructors, too. I listen to the needs of my students, and then ask them questions to help them map out their issues better.
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 believe that literature and writing are first and foremost supposed to be fun! Even with less exciting subjects like grammar and test prep, I still try to bring a down to earth attitude and a sense of humor. I'm particularly familiar with homeschooling and classical education, but I'm adaptable and will adjust to the needs of your student.
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.
My teaching methodology is very personal to each student! I, first, lay out the client's goals, their learning style, and their current experience to cultivate an experience and lesson plan for them. I am a very motivational tutor that can help a student succeed.
I base my classes on the Lesson Plan to be followed and own and shared knowledge of the world with the students: to associate what they are learning with the world. I try to make students communicate in the best possible way, with patience and once the pattern is established, I give them the opportunity to express themselves.
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.
My teaching method is interactive. I use lessons and activities to get the student engaged and active in their learning. I willing to cater any lesson to the subject or students best learning strategy. I am always willing to come work with the student and help them be confident in their learning and work.
I have experience teaching at the undergraduate level, but I am also able to work with high school students. My lessons about history are focused on larger ideas and questions rather than memorizing minute details. When tutoring, I encourage students to ask questions of the text and the material.
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.
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.
*Experience in tutoring college students and high school/middle school students in editing and revising a variety of written assignments *Skilled at close-reading of texts, developing a thesis, and discovering relevant research *Capable of explaining difficult material through examples *Focused on helping students achieve lasting change in quality of work *Enthusiastic and encouraging...
I work hard to make sure my students feel confident in their skills to master tests and content. I have taught hundreds of students from grades 5-12, and I am comfortable working one-on-one and in groups. I love teaching because I love learning--there is nothing like the feeling when information finally clicks together.
I only have experience working with college aged students and college level essays. My approach is to go over the entire assignment to gauge overall strengths and weaknesses of the student, then I start with the biggest weaknesses of the assignment and work with the student to identify how the relevant skills can be built/bad habits can be broken.
My teaching method is to help students find their own voice with supplemental instruction to what they have already been taught, and to help them be confident in their own abilities. A tutors job shouldn’t be to make others write like themselves.
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.
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.
