Mary
1st lesson offered free !

Home schooling three children allowed me to understand the different learning styles and adjust teaching style and curriculum.

For the most effective teaching, I prefer my students to involve a physical part of themselves to be involved in the whole learning process, whether visual, auditory, or hands on methods. I have also found it best to allow my students to walk through a problem while I coach them so they can have actual experience and confidence giving them the ability to learn how to solve problems independently.

Jesse
1st lesson offered free !

Master's in Public Health Graduate who Loves to Write, Read, and Teach

I can't really say I have one single methodology or consistent habits. I want any teaching I do to be as effective as possible, which means that me, my students, the physical space, etc., all contribute to how I will approach a subject or teaching experience.

Certified Orton-Gillingham, grammar, and ACT guru in Cincinnati can help with anything English

I see what the student is being asked to do and what she/he can do, usually accomplished by looking at past work samples and having them do a diagnostic assessment for me. Without this information, any planning I did would be guesswork.

Rita
1st lesson offered free !

Reading and Math Tutor in Mooresville with more than years of experience

I've heard kids say, "I hate to read" or "I'm not good at math" countless times. What I've found is what they really hate is being confused and frustrated. They hate feeling like everyone else in their class can do what they find difficult. Children need foundational skills to be good readers.

Ken
1st lesson offered free !

Retired Lawyer with 40 years of business experience and academic professorship credentials

My teaching methodology is to be inter-active. I do not lecture, I teach by engaging my students and make them a part of the experience. I keep tutoring personal and flexible. No two students are alike in personality or learning skills. No one style fits all. I teach to the student not have the student, not force the student adapt to my style.

Craig
1st lesson offered free !

Mastering Words in a Digital World: All genuine literacy skills, (reading, writing, speaking, spelling, phonetics,) are today both rare & more important than ever.

I teach using both traditional & proprietary methods. Teaching a single student allows for a more personalized technique , whereas as teaching a class requires a more generalized approach. The fundamentals of effective instruction for full literacy are essentially unchanging in either case.

Jade
1st lesson offered free !

Writer with a decade of teaching experience seeks serious scholars, struggling students, and deadline devotees

My teaching methods come from the ideas of Lev Vygotsky's "scaffolding" -- the building of knowledge upon existing knowledge. I prefer to have students take notes during the process of prewriting and researching, as well as when organizing, so they can revisit these whilst revising their essays (or other texts, depending on what we're doing).

I teach using a lot of metaphors and similes to get difficult points across and come of with fun and silly tricks to remember things easier. The way I teach will depend both on what the student needs help with, and the way the student can learn the easiest. As a writer myself, I make sure that my grammar is as perfect as I can manage and I pride myself in having a broad vocabulary.

John
1st lesson offered free !

Reading Specialist with Harvard degree and 12 US patents wants to help LD and Struggling Readers.

I adjust my teaching to each student. I usually begin by having the student read text out loud, specially formatted a phrase at a time. This is read out loud before hearing it spoken. This is ideal for correcting bad reading habits. Then we progress to reading a punctuation interval at a time; this is ideal for improving comprehension and improving fluency.

Taylor
1st lesson offered free !

Experienced and avid reader/writer, looking to provide any help I can to those in need of developing and/or fine-tuning their English reading/writing skills.

A teaching method is something that can and should be extremely variable, as is every student's learning style; this is why I adjust MY teaching method accordingly. The method in which I employ is solely based on that of what I mentioned above: the learning style of the student.

Yvonne
1st lesson offered free !

Writing is a contagious disease that is not fatal, try it...you might like it!

My methodology is to model NOT tell students how to do what I ask. I choose subjects to read and write that my students will enjoy and don't want to end, taking suggestions from them. The expectation is that my students and I dialog ... I'm not a lover of monologue. Students participate more when they have a stake in what's going on and enjoy it.
