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.
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.
After receiving my help, all my former students received either an "A" in the subject they were struggling with or boosted their grade by at least 2 grade levels. I have also helped students earn admission to the colleges of their choice by assisting with admissions essays.
Using the principles of observation and inquiry, I lead you to your own best ideas and help you express them so that what's on the page matches the vision in your imagination. I help you cultivate creativity and analytical skills.
I give exciting instruction in multiple disciplines with emphasis on English and language disciplines, to all who seek help: grade school, high school, and into undergraduate study. I can teach in any style from casual and friendly to more structured and formal. I am adaptable and flexible so I can modify my teaching style to your needs and to the way you learn.
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 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.
I like to work with individual students usually, but have taught groups as large as five students at once. Depending on what the lesson may be for the day I am open to teaching multiple students at once as well.
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 always adapt my teaching method to the student and context. I believe in meeting individual students at the level they've already achieved and affirming, naming and congratulating them on their current skills sets. I present myself as a compassionate co-learner who just so happens to have the knowledge the student needs.
I love a one-on-one or small group learning environment. First I assess, then I address individual needs and base a plan on skill level, curriculum, and desired outcome. Need to write a college paper or interpret Shakespeare? I can help.
I am highly motivated and enthusiastic and teach in a passionate and practical way. I love to see students excel in confidence and content knowledge. I am patient and will meet you where you are at. Through tutoring, we will explore your learning style and exploit your strengths to be successful.
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 have an MFA in poetry, a BFA in English, and a CELTA certificate, along with teaching endorsements in English, ESL, and GT (gifted and talented). I taught English Literature and Language to 7,8, and 9th graders for 10 years, ESL for several years, including several years of work with international students.
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...
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.
Instruction in the "Great Hearts" teaching philosophy. Primary sources (both books and short material) with guided Socratic discussion following the reading. Books covered might include Huck Finn, My Antonia, The Great Gatsby, Walden, The Grapes of Wrath, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, The Federalist Papers.
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.
My teaching method involves looking at the larger picture (The main topic of an essay, reading) and then helping to break it down into smaller parts that easier to comprehend as to not overwhelm my students. For example, if a paper for a class needs to be 5 pages.
It depends on the situation. If a student is a beginner or is struggling, of course I would scaffold and make sure the student has all of information necessary not only to move forward, but to move upward! The more advanced a student is the faster we can move and the deeper we can to into a subject, but if there is one thing i have - a HUGE abundance of it's PATIENCE.
I offer lessons primarily to high school and college students enrolled in writing and literature classes, but I am also happy to help students compose and edit written work in other areas if it does not require that I have expert knowledge on the subject.
My teaching method is to personalized every lesson for my student. During our first session I give my student an academic assessment to see where they currently are, but I also give a multiple intelligence test, which allows me and the student to understand how they learn best.
My goal is to teach my students to write well, from wherever their starting point may be. I tutor especially for college admissions essay development and college/graduate level writing taught in classical style. The college essay can be the deciding factor in the admissions process.
I have a student-centered approach and use the "I do, we do, you do" model of instruction. Any new area of learning starts with a form of pre-assessment to see what the student already knows, and then work from there.
My teaching method is well-rounded and accommodating to all learners. I base my classes on overall knowledge, understanding, and application. I approach each topic by learning what the student knows and guiding my instruction to meet and exceed their needs.
My teaching method is to let you try first to see what you can do then I will be able to help. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. I will being helping with your essay writing skills and your reading skill. So we will be doing some reading comprehension .
I have a master's degree in teaching. My lessons have warm-up questions, direct instruction, student practice time, and wrap-up questions. I enjoy working individually with students because it gives me an opportunity to create tailor-made lessons that meet the student's individual learning goals.
As an instructional designer, I am proficient at tailoring learning to the learning style and level of the student. I believe that reading and vocabulary are key to good writing. Incrementally more difficult reading material is essential at every level in order to recognize good writing, to develop a large vocabulary, and learn strong writing skills.
