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.
My teaching style is skill-based. In my teaching, I get the most out of students by emphasizing how each subject builds and develops useful skills - skills that will prove valuable to students in both their academic and professional lives.
Each student has unique needs and I try to focus my sessions on meeting those specific needs in a thorough yet encouraging manner. I teach a wide distribution of levels from Junior High through Graduate School. Over the years, I have taught a number of students for whom English was not their first language.
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.
I have no unique approach to all students. My first session consists of 'getting know of each other' and 'determining the right approach'. Each student is different and I has different needs, so I always try to find the best 'teaching style' for each of them.
I have a friendly hands-on approach that assesses a student's strengths and weaknesses and, through practice and review, help the student achieve goals. I have a good rapport with students of all ages and find that they want to learn.
I think I make a great tutor because I am able to connect well with the students. I have many interests which are shared with the students that give us something to talk about. This allows the student to relax, which helps them learn easier. I expect my students to do all of their work, but I am a very laid back person which puts them at ease.
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.
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.
I work hard to make sure my students feel confident in their skills to master tests and content. I have taught hundreds of students from grades 5-12, and I am comfortable working one-on-one and in groups. I love teaching because I love learning--there is nothing like the feeling when information finally clicks together.
I really get these tests. I've been working with these tests and students for years. I've seen the changes to the tests over time, and can point these new items out to students as we work. I give strategies and work through a complete test with each student, then we move on to going over the homework tests I give them to complete each week.
I help you get to the answer, not hand it to you. I ensure you feel empowered to tackle your educational responsibilities, even when alone. This is the best way to guarantee continual growth and success for you. I bring & impart CIC - Compassion, Information & Confidence.
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 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.
-Four graduate degrees in literature, including the Ph.D. -Two recent books on literary subjects -Method of instruction: The student writes; I read, ask questions, and request greater depth and clarity; the student re-writes...
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.
My teaching methodology is centered on empowering the learner. My students are free to explore and take accountability for their own education, breaking through the confines and limitations placed upon them from the standard curriculum. I am willing to help any and all students who seek assistance.
In teaching SAT and other standardized tests, I work from a standardized test preparation book that the student purchases and uses for homework. We begin by working through question by question in a particular subject. I will assist the student to understand the question, review the process (formula, procedure, etc.) and to practice similar questions.
Although my college degrees and experience as a teacher and tutor serve as my professional qualifications, they are not what make me a successful tutor.
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.
I believe the key to a successful lesson is to teach with passion and humor. My methodology changes depending upon the needs of each individual student, and I tailor my lessons to fit those needs. Just as no two students are the same, no two lessons should be the same.
In regards to overall teaching methodology, I am flexible! I hope to teach students essay (and general) writing skills from elementary to collegiate levels -- as well as the accompanying test preparation(s). In regards to lesson structure, I plan to tailor my approach to the student's current level and breadth of understanding.
I teach English for those needing to learn and also have taught ESL too. I can give one-on-one sessions using your books and designed solely to reach your goal. I teach the subject and work to the student's ability to handle the material. I prefer smaller sessions, but can and will teach larger groups too. We will use YOUR textbooks or workbooks; and if possible I will supplement them too.
I am a public high school life science educator. I have been teaching for the last 11 years and tutoring for over 15 years. I have taught well over 2,000 students in my classroom and tutored hundreds of students over the years.
I believe it is important to first make a personal connection with the student. I want to make sure my students feel comfortable sharing their worries with me, so that they never feel embarrassed if they don't know the answer to a question. My first priority is to cater each lesson to the student's specific needs. Each student is unique and may learn best from different teaching methods.
