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 method in essay writing is to really have the student establish a sense of "full presence" with their own writing. What I mean by "full presence" is that the student has a set goal for the essay and is using a selective style and word choice to build a written product that truly reflects his or her interest in the literature being analyzed or stance on a given topic.
I tutor English essay writing, literature, and reading comprehension. I operate through a disciplined framing of questions in conversation, such that the student is guided not towards the “answer”—but towards what it is they already know that will help them find the answer.
Initially, I like to get to know my students so that I can tailor their needs to the approach I take. Feedback from students is crucial; getting to know what they are comfortable with and what they may feel self-conscious about in their academic skills allows me to focus on building on weaknesses and encouraging strengths.
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 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.
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.
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.
Bachelor of Arts in Foreign Language (French) with a minor in Linguistics from George Mason University. I like to use a variety of tools and methods to help students have fun while progressing with their reading and writing. Language can be used in fun and creative ways, and I love helping students realize that and their potential.
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.
My teaching method consists of having discussions about the reading material in questions and speaking about our viewpoints on scenes and scenarios in the text.
I am a college student, and I am willing to give tutoring lessons up through senior year of high school. I break down your writing for you, and I have you take a look at the words you have written, the thoughts you've come up with. Then, I have you find new ways to phrase what you've written that will better help the reader understand exactly what you mean.
For each tutoring session, I collaborate with my students to set goals. Tutoring is all about what my student wants to gain, so I adapt my teaching methodology to suit my student's needs. For a skill, such as writing, I read my student's existing work to get a sense of what they can do. From there, I decide what he or she most needs to work on and tackle that first.
My teaching method is eclectic and focused on the material required for comprehension as well as the skilled delivery needed. I am a student-centered educator owing to the classic work of Carl Rogers--the client/student determines the specific needs to be met and methodology required by faithfully representing how much they know and how much they want to know.

My teaching method is very hands on. I like to read the work together and get the students take on what it means and then try to see what was going on in that time of history to try and get a better grasp on the literature itself.
I customize my teaching to each student. This comes from my experience in Special Education and my personal experience with education. I am understanding and want every person I tutor or teach to succeed, but also to learn and feel comfortable doing so.
