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.

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. 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.

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.

As a classroom teacher, with over 18 years of experience teaching English skills in Lakeland, Florida, my most rewarding moments are when I can see those light bulbs go off in students' brains.

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.

High school English teacher with 20 years experience offering affordable lessons on the peninsula

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.

Be supported by the best tutors in your reading lessons

Reading is a fundamental tool everyone needs to know. Of course, reading is broken down to not just being able to read the written word but understand it as well. Each word needs to have a specific comprehension, on top of a student must know how words work together in order to create sentences. This is generally covered in different English classes as a student works their way through grade school and eventually into the upper tiers of their local school system. Some students are simply not going to catch on as quickly though, which can not only make reading difficult but it can put them at a disadvantage for all of their other classes as well. That is exactly why it is so important for a student to receive immediate attention from private teachers who can work with the student and create reading private lessons for them to work on in order to improve their reading skills. Each of the literacy private lessons is going to be completed with the help of English private teachers. The reading private lessons are all tailor designed for each student to work on what they struggle with, all with the help of the reading private teachers.
