Reading Specialist with more than 10 years of experience offering sessions in Nashville, Tennessee and Surrounding areas

I as an educator know that student engagement is the key to learning retention and having a great overall classroom experience. With changing times, education requires adaptation and evolution.

1st lesson offered free !

Passionate, young OSU graduate with 5 years of experience tutoring English and Literature. Columbus OH based.

Most of my lessons have been to high school students looking to improve ACT Reading, Writing, and English scores, or who are looking to prepare for college-load reading assignments.

Julia
1st lesson offered free !

Experienced and certified AP Literature and ESL teacher with multi-year experience available

Embedded in all I teach is the method of Stephen Krashen: I+1, i.e. the core material with some reach/stretch is needed, but not too much of a stretch so as to frustrate students. I teach not simply mastery of the facts but critical, higher level thinking and writing skills, argumentation, and inferential reading that calls for going beyond a "right there" answer to assessing one that is implied.

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.
