Hello fellow students! I feel we are all always learning, including teachers. My name is Randee and I love to teach. I currently work with Title 1 students tutoring in Reading and Math (ages Kindergarten-5th grade). I graduated from Eckerd College. I would say my philosophy on teaching is that every student learns differently.
My teaching method is hands-on, engaging, and as real-world applicable as possible. Lessons are age-appropriate, vary based on the student, and are crafted for their specific learning style. I believe learning should be fun and should bring out the creativity in every learner.
I am a Cornell University graduate who specializes in helping students with ACT and SAT Prep as well as college admissions essays and resumes. I have previously worked as a tutor for ACT/SAT prep and as a resume builder for both students and professionals. I am extremely compassionate and work with students to reach their highest potential in any way I can.
I approach each topic by assessing students prior knowledge of the topic, as well as the personal, community, and cultural assets that each student brings into the class. I believe that all students bring their unique background experiences into the classroom - student assets are always valued.
I am a believer that everyone is capable of learning if the right approach of teaching is presented to students. Through my teaching years, I have acquired many teaching approaches and styles suitable for students. I customized lessons to produce positive results.
Each lesson starts with small talk and a short review from the previous lesson. Any homework is also checked, reviewed and finishes with a few Q&As. Then the lesson begins. Firstly, I will ask questions about the subject to see how much you already know about the area. This is important as you do not want to learn something you already know! Then we will begin.
I believe each child has his/her own styles of learning and work best at their own individual pace. I love working one on one and watch young minds grow and strengthen not just in academics but in self confidence that will help them aspire towards greater things in the future.
Barbara has over twenty years of education, obtaining an Education Specialist Degree (also known as A.B.D.) in Teaching and Learning from Liberty University, including a Master's Degree in Curriculum/Instruction with an emphasis in reading from Grand Canyon University and a Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of North Florida.
I approach each topic from a place of fascination and discovery; there is an uncharted sea out there of each and every student. My methods of instruction go beyond the comprehension of a subject; they are meant to encourage creative and profound thought, inspiring a deeper, more analytical way of thinking. They are persuaded to develop their opinions and ideas.
My teaching method is to make learning easy for a student. I like to keep lessons simple at first with later lessons increasing in complexity. I try not to talk down to a student. I want them to understand the lessons without confusion.
I have a Master's Degree in Reading. The first step is to diagnose the area of concern through a series of tests to identify the specific problem that the student is having.
I can give lessons to high school age and younger. Whether it's going over the structure your essay should match, or helping with grammar, I can do anything! Just let me know what you need help with and I will build my lesson around you.
My lessons are individualized and tailored to meet the needs of your child's, based off data collected from Diagnostic assessments. My mission is to put the "fun" back in learning, where students are motivated and excited to learn. At the same time, I instill morals and hold all students accountable for their own learning and academic success.
I think learning should be fun as well as informative. Education changes lives. The ability to comprehend and to see things from different perspectives enhances a person's understanding of the world around him or her and colors their existence. I try to encourage students to use their imaginations and to apply what they learn to that to which life exposes them.

As a tutor, I like to personalize each lesson to the individual needs of everyone who needs my help. This is the most effective way to ensure that anyone being tutored is gaining exactly what they need from their lesson.
My teaching is child center-based I look at the needs of each individual child and try and cater to their specific requirements rather than having a whole class approach.
I am flexible with what and whom I teach. My lessons are colorful, bright, creative and sure to keep students engaged and excited to learn. I will work with each students particular learning style, and focus on their short term and long term goals.
I assess the child, identify his/her needs and plan my instruction accordingly. My lessons are data based according to the needs of each child I tutor. I am continually evaluating and assessing the needs of the child. I enjoy watching a child progress into a confident reader.
My teaching methodologies change based on the needs of my students, however the most effective methods are based in Constructivist approaches (learning through experience and doing). Because of that, my lessons typically involve a short mini-lesson based on what you need and then guided practice until you're able to do it independently.
As an instructor, my primary motivation for teaching is to help students learn the material in a meaningful and active way. I believe that shaping my students into active learners and participators in the course allows students to engage in an experiential way with the material, and I have found this to enhance both their individual initiative and enthusiasm for learning.
Working with 4 and 5-year-olds every day has taught me that learning can be fun and in many ways, it needs to be or you won't be dedicated to learning.
I love incorporating real world, current events to my lessons, as well as artful and creative medium, like paintings, hip-hop and provocative journalism. My lessons often as students to probe the work at hand, as well as digging a little deeper into who they are and how their ideas came to be.
I love to base my classes on individual needs and use many programs to teach from not just one methodology. I like to know interests of my students so I can tailor the lesson to them and make sure they are excited and want to be in the sessions. I use many different ways to teach including music, comprehension and phonics and exercises as well as games.
My teaching method is based on the trio of praise, question, encourage. Have you heard a young person tell his or her friend a story? Often, the telling is well-rounded and full of detail and emotion, the same qualities that define good writing and acute reading.
I am a very experienced teacher who has devoted my career to helping students of all ages learn to read, write, and speak the English language as well as prepare for standardized testing. I have a Masters Degree plus 48 hours of Doctoral level college education and am very skilled in providing instruction and support in all aspects of English literacy.
I aid students in completing their assignments as well as addressing any issues they have with comprehending their assigned material.
Encouragement and Understanding. I can work with high school and college age students and non-traditional students as well. I like to set up a routine for each class in order to build consistency.
I am a doctoral candidate of education with a focus in reading education. I am available for all students requiring academic assistance with reading and other literacy related activities. I give lessons in a flexible manner, utilizing various on/offline resources and activities to help all learners succeed in academic endeavors.
For the SAT, I would teach the content that the exams tests rather than testing strategy to best improve the student's score. For reading, that would entail going through official collegeboard released practice passages and evaluating the main idea, purpose, etc. of the piece.
