Enthusiastic, certified ESL educator, with a Master's in education. I optimize learning with engaging, student-relevant activities by serving the needs of and positively transforming diverse populations through innovative programs.
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 well-versed in current composition theory and pedagogy, and I have implemented those theories and practices in my courses. Over the years, my classroom environments have been significantly enhanced through continually evolving use of current technologies and classroom support programs, such as Skype, Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, Canvas programs, etc.
I seek to engage students in their own learning and increase their test scoring ability as well as their ownership of the material to be learned. Overall, I gear a course towards students' individual learning styles as much as is allowable, with an emphasis on task completion within different formats.
I believe in personalized educational support tailored to a student's particular needs. I enjoy working collaboratively with students to meet their goals--taking advantage of their academic strengths and improving their areas of growth. My classroom teaching experience allows me to use proven teaching techniques beyond typical tutoring.
Are you looking for help with your essay writing, academic reading or with the SAT (verbal section)? I'm here to serve. I have a Masters in Education from P.S.U and a B.A. from USC in writing. I have a secondary teaching license and have over five years of experience tutoring students of all ages and abilities.
My teaching method for SAT prep is a lot of targeted practice with real exam questions. There is a pattern and once students can discern the patterns, they are a lot more successful. I also believe in using test-taking strategies in order to eliminate and critically think of alternate ways to solve problems.
I believe that an equitable classroom climate is an environment in which everyone has what they need to achieve a similar goal. I understand that we all learn at different paces and in different manners. The key to success in the classroom, is figuring out how an individual learns and providing them with the best fuel for their personalized learning experience within your classroom.
I spend the first session getting to know my students in order to grasp what they're struggling in, what they hope to achieve academically, and what resources they need to do it. I then gather worksheets and cultivate a lesson plan that is individually crafted for them. Whether it be test prep, reading help, or writing tips, I have resources on hand from my grassroots tutoring program.
My teaching methodology, when assisting in essay writing, is collaborative. I help students mine for ideas and personal details about their lives, and then help them structure these into a formal yet creative essay. When teaching the mechanics of grammar, I take a more didactic approach, explaining concepts using examples and modeling.
I like to tailor my methodology to each individual student. No two students learn the same way and, therefore, no two students are best served by the same methodology. I like to start off with inquiry-based assessments and continue asking my students questions and making them answer hypotheticals.
Students that come to me for tutoring have specific skills they need to improve. For that reason, I provide an individualized student-centered approach that aims to target areas of improvement and turn them into areas of strength. My goal is to provide students with strategies that will help them maintain their progress long after our lesson.
My degree in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics gives me the unique ability to help my students approach every aspect of the humanities as part of a whole, enabling them to both retain networks of information more easily and grow as critical thinkers. I love the diversity in how my students think, and finding the best way to make learning rewarding for each one.
I prefer the Socratic method of teaching. It helps you find the answers to problems from within yourself, with the teacher helping as a guide and mentor. It doesn't preach, it promotes. My quest is to help the student achieve self realization, and self worth. All one can ask of anyone is to do their best. This always leads to happiness and a sense of pride in one's own abilities.
My aim along with tutoring a student is to teach him / her the effective study skills as to boost the his / her confidence and self-esteem. I am a life-long learner, and I do my best to assist my students to become the ones, too!!! I personalized my teaching strategies to every individual student's need, level of comprehension and experience.
I have a Doctorate in Education from Texas Tech, a Master of Science from Georgia State University and a Bachelors and Masters from Southern Polytechnic State University in Georgia. I was a project engineer when I finished my undergraduate (with Southern Engineering Company) and progressed to teaching because I enjoyed research and computer applications.

I tutor students with an individualized approach to help with study skills, test taking strategies, homework assistance, organizational tips, and retention tools that instill confidence in learning. I use a customized, patient, and positive approach towards learning that shows students that they can achieve their goals.
I am to work with students closely in order to provide them with knowledge that will be useful to them throughout their lives. My focus is on giving students needed skills, as well as improving their critical thinking skills so they can help themselves in the future.
My teacher methods will be tailored to each individual students. I encourage students to make connections to the material in order to develop a deeper understanding. I try to make things as fun as possible during a lesson, while still maximizing learning time.
I base my courses on the content that my students present to me. I then create a course of action based on addressing the issues they have said content. In regards to essay writing specifically I go through prior essays, mark points of interest, and use those points to ask questions, as well as offer constructive criticism on how to improve the pieces of writing presented to me.
My teaching method has to do with first identifying the learning style of the student. After getting a sense of how a particular student engages the material, I will devise my lesson plan accordingly. I am extremely flexible re: adapting my teaching method, as I can easily call upon relevant examples or simply break down the numbers/info at hand.
I work with students who are preparing for standardized test, such as the ACT and SAT, or who need a tutor for Algebra 1 and 2. I believe in using more than one method to get to the answer, as long as it can be mathematically proven.
I have two degrees (BA and MA) in Philosophy, a discipline that greatly values critical thinking and quality, persuasive writing. Rather than covering a large amount of material, I find that many learn best by covering topics deeply, and then, once a deeper understanding has been gained, moving on and making connections with other topics.
As required by the state, my instruction is based on the ELA standards for that grade level. I use the gradual release of responsibility/explicit teaching model ("I do", "we do", "you do"). I also use a lot of reading and writing strategies, such as graphic organizers, annotating the text, etc.
I approach teaching with the knowledge that every student has particular needs, even though the tests may be standardized. I incorporate consideration of these factors into personalizing an approach to efficiently and effectively teaching the fundamental techniques required to achieve the highest scores on these exams.
To provide the most effective instruction, we will work together on topics you are interested in. Just like any skill, you only get better by practicing, so you will get timely and specific feedback about your writing, and then you will get the opportunity to revise what you have written to make it stronger.
I believe every person can be successful when learning, they just need the right person to help them discover what is holding them back. I am able to quickly discern what a student needs, whether that student is in elementary school, just learning to read and write or a high school student getting ready to take an important standardized test.
I adapt instruction to the learning style and needs of each individual. I incorporate fun games and activities to keep learning engaging and fun. I also keep learning meaningful and help students make connections during instruction by building on their prior knowledge and skills.
