Serious reader loves to teach reading, writing and arithmetic to all ages and skill levels.

I believe in a solid foundation, so we begin at the beginning and work our way up, stopping to fill in blanks as needed. In reading, I mix visual, auditory and kinetic learning as needed.

Retired teacher/tutor offering online tutoring to individuals and small groups in Academic English.

I prefer to work with my students very closely using the tools of assessment, commentary, followed by a second assessment. There's no pressure in this. It's just to make sure the students are all on the same page and absorbing the material.

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.

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. Overall I value fairness and doing whatever it is I can do to maintain students' engagement.

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.

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.

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.

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).

Advanced English student looking to tutor someone in need of some extra help in any grade level of English. I am an eleventh grade student who has taken advanced English since third grade and excels w

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.

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.

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.

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.
