My teaching method is based on proven and well researched techniques that promote life-long skill retention. You will never forget the lessons you take with me. My lessons are always customized for you, based on your learning style, and formed with your interests in mind.
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.
I approach each student by learning what they are interested in and then apply this interest in to what is needed for them to succeed. I am an optimist and feel that each student has great potential to be successful.
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. Students are not as easily captivated as before by simple colorful animations in textbooks and monotonous songs to correlate with learned concepts.
I believe learning to read is the most difficult cognitive task faced by children. My lessons are based on the latest scientific research and are consistent with the findings of the National Reading Panel as articulated in its report of April 2000.
I teach SAT and ACT prep in classes and 1-to-1. I hsve uniques strategies that employ such that the students can see the recurring patterns in the SAT and ACT question snd answer them with comfort and ease. I work hard to make sure my students have the confidence to tackle the SAT and ACT by working with them initially and then gradually leaving them to show me what they can do independently.
I am patient, creative and friendly. Many of my students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. In addition to teaching in person, I also use Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Appear.in, interactive whiteboards, attachments (PDF, Word, Excel), and Slack, a remote desktop program.
Listening is a part of learning, and that goes for instructors, too. I listen to the needs of my students, and then ask them questions to help them map out their issues better.
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. Most of my recent lessons, though, have been to college students who don't have comfort with English or writing essays and need general guidance, review, and knowledge on how to become a better writer.
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.
I most often work with students who struggle to respond to writing prompts from their English classes. Literary analysis and arguments (researched or not researched) are my specialties, though not the only types of academic writing I can help with. My approach is collaborative.
I am an English teacher. BA and MA in English linguistics. Ready to teach both kids and adults English and Arabic online or a public library. I believe in practicing the language skills as much as you can with a native speaker or instructor. Encourage reading and listening to improve language and vocabulary. I love listening to my students giving a lot of time and effort to convey the message .
I am committed to delivering high-quality, individualized instruction. For tutoring in reading and writing, I assess students and then create informed lessons to best help them improve their skills. I include phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension, spelling, and vocabulary in reading lessons for struggling readers in elementary school.
I am a New York State Certified Teacher. I help students from Pre-K to high school with all subjects. I have a BS in Education and I am currently working on my Master's Degree. I teach through understanding the students' personality. I believe that learning is fun and I show this to my students with various strategies.
I teach high school students in the ways that best fit them. Whether you are inexperienced and struggle conceptually, or just want to fine tune your work, I believe the tutoring experience should be what works best for you. Hands on or hands off, every student is different.
My teaching philosophy is that every student is different; therefore, my teaching methodology varies for each student. I take a multiple intelligences approach to teaching, building in a variety of ways of learning into my lessons. Also, my undergraduate degree is from a university known as an engineering school. I have a very logical/mathematical approach to grammar and writing.
Hello fellow students! I feel we are all always learning, including teachers. My name is Randee and I love to teach. I currently work with Title 1 students tutoring in Reading and Math (ages Kindergarten-5th grade). I graduated from Eckerd College. I would say my philosophy on teaching is that every student learns differently.
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.
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.
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 base my classes on the Lesson Plan to be followed and own and shared knowledge of the world with the students: to associate what they are learning with the world. I try to make students communicate in the best possible way, with patience and once the pattern is established, I give them the opportunity to express themselves.
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.
My goal is to foster creativity and help guide students into unique ways of critical thinking. As a kid, I loved to read because I had teachers who encouraged my imagination, I'd like to do the same for the kids I tutor.
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 method is to make sure the student's needs are being met. Before I begin working with a student, my desire is to understand what needs they have first to prevent from waisting time. After that is established and I know what is needed, my goal is to provide a structured but fun, successful learning environment.
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.
