My philosophy is rooted in one simple tenant - meet the client where they are and build their skills based on goals and expectations agreed upon through collaborative planning and mutual investment. The client determines where our collaboration should start, how far it should reach, and when it has come to an end.
First, and most importantly, I believe in making learning FUN! We remember things we enjoy! I like to always have a clear understanding of the needs of the learner. I will talk to students about the areas of frustration, and also the parents (when possible for younger learners) to get as much information as possible.
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.
My teaching method is hands-on and interactive. I like to use games to help a child learn, as well as diagrams, real-life examples and to correlate the knowledge with something the individual student can relate to in order to help their interest/understanding.
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 approach each topic with the intent to make learning exciting and fun. Keeping each student attention can difficult at times, especially after being in school all day and then has to attend a tutorial session with me. I make a game out of it with incentive prices after a couple of weeks of successful sessions with me.
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.
I am a responsible and caring high school student with a knack for teaching. I strongly believe in adhereing to the different learnig types of children. I am a never give up type instrutor. I will do my best to make surebthe person i am instructing gets the topic in abway they understand.
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 like to encourage the students to think through problems and make logical connections. This is what I believe makes the technical rules of English and writing memorable. If a student asks a question about something they don't know, I am likely going to counter it with a probing question and lead them to the conclusion through their own discovery instead of telling them the answer right away.
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.
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.
Tutoring Services: - Private Prep and Tutoring for English, Language Arts, Speech, and Theatre - ACT & SAT Prep - College Essays Grades: 6 and above “Never judging, but striving to always be fair” is the motto in every one of THE ESSAY MASTER's classrooms, along with striving to bring both a sense of humor and passion into every lesson.
I give lessons primarily to high school and college students from all walks of life. I develop a structured lesson plan for each lesson that involves plenty of discussion and writing exercises. I strive to make my educational spaces safe and nurturing.
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 am working on a bachelors in the field of pychology. I hope to become a substiute teacher and work for pre-k to fourth grade level. I like to work with children one on one, not really all together. Ok.
I have a BA in English Literature from the University of Oklahoma, along with a BA in Women's Studies.

Hello! I am currently a college student finishing up my BA with a major in English and minor in history while being in the secondary education program; to put it shortly, I'm two classes away from being an English and/or history teacher for 7-12th grade! Teaching is my passion and I love helping students explore their interests in the subjects I hold closest to my heart.
I have taught from fifth grade English to tenth grade English for 5 years; my students have told me class is fun, but hard. :) My method follows a general pattern of "I do, We do, You do," with a few dashes of leading questions to aid you in reaching your desired level of understanding.

I have a bachelor's degree in secondary education/ English major and a Master's degree degree in secondary Writing Instruction. I am endorsed and experienced teaching Reading and ESOL in grades 7-12, currently at a high school in the Melbourne Florida area.
I am a certified English, Language Arts, and Reading Teacher with a passion for creative writing. I was also the production editor of my college's literary magazine. I am trained to help develop writing on an individual level. My focus goes beyond teaching spelling and grammar, generating ideas, and teaching organization. I want to develop a deeper writer.
I received a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of Dallas in 2005. I quickly entered the world of education and became a teacher after completing a teacher certification program in Irving, Texas. While teaching, I received ongoing training in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program.
I approach each topic based on my students' needs. I am patient but facilitate in an organized and thorough manner. I believe that each student may have different needs but each is as important as the other. I take as much time as is needed with each student.
I teach English and writing to students from around the world ages 8-88! My teaching method is upbeat, student-centered, constructive, and generative. I ask questions and always let each student's ideas be the guide for our discussion. I provide concrete ideas for development in a positive encouraging atmosphere.
I adapt my teaching method to the student in order to best assist him or her based on their current writing level and learning personality. I base my classes on both traditional lectures combined with student feedback, tailoring each lesson to the student's current needs.
I teach my classes in a way that is relevant to the students in my class. I use their prior experiences and learning to scaffold learning. I find unique and engaging ways to teach new information. I am committed to the success of my students.
For my lessons, I plan to help students struggling with the following: analyzing poetry or novels, understanding the themes behind well known high school books, essay writing and how to structure a MLA formatted essay, how to find scholarly articles and utilize them in writing, creative writing including poetry and short stories, and overall develop an understanding with the student about the...
