College Writing prof and Fulbright Scholar living in Tucson, AZ wants to help students (and adults) wishing to develop and improve their skills. Can work in your home or online anywhere in the world.

The most important part of teaching is to get to know your student(s), their goals and objectives as well as their strengths and weaknesses. This is best achieved by diagnostic lessons as well as personal interview. Once we develop a mutual and achievable goal, the results will follow. I will work with students and adults from ages 12 and up.

Multi-faceted writer and PhD student with 8 years teaching experience at university and high school level offering individual and group tutoring

When I talk about teaching, I talk about three things: 1) my philosophy of what I call a “pedagogy through over-sharing,” often by using humor in the classroom to keep students interested and engaged; 2) the importance for students to develop a concrete (as opposed to purely theoretical) knowledge base; and 3) inculcating within students a sense of historical change over time (as opposed to con

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.

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.

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.
