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 works for anyone for anyone from elementary school to college. -I usually will ask if anyone has any question before reviewing the material that needs to be learned. -I'd then review with the students. -Finally, I'd ask what confused the students and try to clarify by having a meaningful conversation with the student or group of students.
Have you ever wondering what philosophy is? Or are you simply curious about how philosophy can enhance people's lives and their values? Philosophy helps people understand themselves and their lives better.
I completed my PhD in 2006 in Social Studies and Global Education at The Ohio State University. Between 2006 and 2009, I taught in the College of Education at Winona State University and successfully served on multiple department, College, University, community, and state-wide committees. During the 2009-10AY I taught Introduction to Chicano Studies and Introduction to Ethnic Studies at St.
I am a dissertation student with a 4.0 GPA. I possess excellent written, oral, and electronic communication skills. I have experience working with primary and high school students as well as college and grad students.
I teach all levels and styles. I tailor my teaching to the individual needs of each person. Sometimes formal lecture works best. Other times a casual discussion of a philosophical issue is what's most effective. The goal of my teaching in this format (outside of the classroom) is to simply do some philosophy and have fun with it. Maybe you want to talk philosophy while walking in the park.
I always prefer to teach using the Socratic method, that is, by asking questions in an attempt to prompt the student to reach an answer on their own accord. This method leads to better retention of information and the ability to deploy concepts in critical thinking exercises, as opposed to simply on tests.
When it comes to teaching and tutoring History, I generally adopt an approach that blends recall with Socratic inquiry. This back and forth, in which the tutor maintains an intense discussion with the student, allows that student to come to their own conclusions about difficult works, and to communicate those conclusions in clear, articulate responses.
My teaching method is tailored to the student. I discuss with the student his or her goals and proceed on that basis. I am willing to work with the student on prior tests, quizzes, or homework assignments. My primary goal is to teach UNDERSTANDING and not simply memorization.
I meet my students where they are at in terms of skills and needs. We work on developing skills through doing drills, work on case writing and develop strong and ethical research practices.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master of Arts in Public History from American Military University. I have worked over a decade in special government projects. All of this experience has taught me the value of utilizing a variety of methods to teach lessons which are understood and contextualized for the individual student.
I am a 16-year Doctorate-holder, who has taught, on-line, on-ground, and everywhere in between, preparing easily digestible lessons for each student, on a wide swath of subjects within the several disciplines, and am prepared to walk you through each subject!
I hold a BA in Political Science and History, and have taught all subjects and levels of Social Studies ( grades 6-12) in public, private, and charter schools for the last 7 years. I teach through engaging storytelling and humor, which I use to help students identify and articulate the broader patterns which characterize the Humanities.

Socrates and Jesus are amazing teachers, and their methods are my inspiration. Stories and critical thinking are the keys to opening the door of lifelong education. We are wired to remember stories more than lists of facts, so the knowledge gained from them will stay with us forever.
My life is an often contradictory juxtaposition of highly analytical predictive analysis and planning coupled with impulsive, seat-of-my-pants vectors which I can only support via creative instinct and guesswork.
Students often struggle with the memory parts of history. It is my job to make connections between the past and the present, bridging that gap. Using proper citation and research can also be a challenge that I help students overcome.
I adjust my method based on provided curriculum, but there is primarily and emphasis on explanation, exercises and review tailored to individual student needs and experiences. I move at the pace of the individual and treat each student with patience and understanding, especially with those who struggle with traditional educational structures.
I am passionate about education and want to help others feel the same way. I want to make learning easier for those who struggle or those who want to get ahead by making subjects interesting. I assist with homework, assign some assignments and answer any questions that a student may have.
My teaching method is very tailored to the student. I believe that students learn according to their natural tactic towards understanding the world, and by using their inherent strengths, can excel when entering uncharted territory.
I am a firm believer in adopting a growth mentality. I believe that everybody can learn and that the goal of an education should be the cultivation of the individual. If an individual improves their ability to critically think, write, and speak, then they are prepared to succeed in any discipline and aspect of life.
My teaching methodology is based on Socrates, the Greek Philosopher. He taught through conversation. He did not lecture. Learning was something that happened to him and his students.
I approach each topic by looking at the foundations surrounding the subject. Should a subject require a lot of foundation, said foundation will be explained first, before being combined together during the conclusion. Should a topic be more simplistic, then foundation will be explained while the topic is explored naturally.
I am an engaging tutor with over four years experience teaching students at the university level. Utilizing a variety of teaching techniques tailored to the student, my approach is informal, but results driven. I am not only focused on improving marks, but also providing the essential knowledge base that will enable my students to succeed in the future.
Dear students, I am a passionate lecturer with extensive knowledge in Philosophical studies and Anthropological Sciences. I hold Licentiate and Masters Degrees in Philosophy. My academic dissertation was on the works of John Ralws in view of Social systems of justice and fairness in socio-economic and political spheres. I believe that knowing to do right thing is the highest level of justice.
I am a general Ed/Special Ed profession. I utilize differentiated and individualized instruction. I am heavy on lecture style with manipulatives, visual aids, and graphic organizers. My students will learn through repetition and application. I evaluate based on performance.

During my experience in teaching philosophy and Modern Greek, I have found that each student learns better with a lesson plan tailored to her/his own style. The strengths and preferred teaching style of each student will be assessed prior to the lessons, so that the student gets to receive a high-quality, efficient, and effective learning experience.
The Socratic method is effective in engaging students to develop a reasoned approach to everyday questions. Through this dialogue, a connection can be made between historical origins as they relate to the present. Therefore, readings and questions that relate to them are crucial to understanding, and form the basis for evaluating mastery of the instructional material.
My teaching method is based on discussion and promotes understanding through questioning on the part of both student and teacher. I also work extensively to prepare students for written assessments, mainly through practice essays which I score using official rubrics and then review with students with the goal of continuous improvement and increasing comfort.
