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 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 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.
I give exciting instruction in multiple disciplines with emphasis on English and language disciplines, to all who seek help: grade school, high school, and into undergraduate study. I can teach in any style from casual and friendly to more structured and formal. I am adaptable and flexible so I can modify my teaching style to your needs and to the way you learn.
I believe that literature and writing are first and foremost supposed to be fun! Even with less exciting subjects like grammar and test prep, I still try to bring a down to earth attitude and a sense of humor. I'm particularly familiar with homeschooling and classical education, but I'm adaptable and will adjust to the needs of your student.
I use a variety of teaching methods, depending on student's learning style, level of progress, and his/her preferred strategies and activities--most important are ways to motivate and inspire each student according to his/her special talents and interests. I have taught all levels from Middle School to Ph.D. students and adult lifelong learners.
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 am a high school English teacher currently teaching 11th-12th grades. I teach British Literature, Mythology, AP Language, and Science Fiction, and also have past experience with 10th grade English and ESL. I believe it's important to get to know each student as an individual; no two people have the same needs as learners.
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 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 think one of the most difficult parts of studying for the MCAT is where to start. I will help students with getting the correct study materials, creating a personalized study schedule, and practice test schedule. I will then coach students on how to identify their areas of weakness so that they can maximize strengths and maximize their score potential.
I am a certified Math teacher with a degree in Mathematics and a degree in Political Science. I've tutored for the SAT, GED and High School proficiency tests; as well as "homework help". I've taught various math subjects including Basic Math, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry and Trigonometry.
My teaching method is interactive. I use lessons and activities to get the student engaged and active in their learning. I willing to cater any lesson to the subject or students best learning strategy. I am always willing to come work with the student and help them be confident in their learning and work.
My teaching uses story-telling to grab interest and dramatize material. Attractive visuals with PowerPoint and video are helpful. My talks involve asking students/audience members a lot of questions draw them out and evoke conversations that serve as springboards for material.
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.
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 teach HS science, currently Biology, and am very excited to work with students helping them to prepare AND to move to the next level of understanding. I believe science is so amazing and should by taught that was as well. I graduated from BGSU and have also worked in Engineering on Cad/Cam as well as been and Administrator at Owens.
I am most experienced with middle school, high school, and college-age students in the subject areas of writing, reading, history, and college application preparation. I do my best to not simply edit work, but to ensure that students learn skills that they can them apply to future projects and assignments.
My approach to teaching foreign languages is for my student and me to read a story in the target language, to learn the grammar deductively, and to discuss the text in the language we're studying. This works for any level.
Education: Saint Joseph’s University- Philadelphia, PA 3.8 GPA, Master of Science in Special Education, M.S. Ed. West Chester University- West Chester, PA 3.
I am a teacher with almost 20 years of experience from grades 1 all the way to tutoring college students. I have worked as a classroom teacher, reading interventionist, literature teacher, private tutor and more. I enjoy working one on one with students and finding their strengths and weaknesses and using them to help create a plan of intervention.
There are three core elements to my teaching methodology. First, I ask strategic questions to help you see things from the perspectives you are being asked to address and wrestle with relevant concepts. This is a subtle, but critically important skill to develop. Second, I use visuals whenever I can.
As an instructional designer, I am proficient at tailoring learning to the learning style and level of the student. I believe that reading and vocabulary are key to good writing. Incrementally more difficult reading material is essential at every level in order to recognize good writing, to develop a large vocabulary, and learn strong writing skills.
My teaching methodology is to learn who my students are and how they best learn. By doing this, I am able to start where they are and then help them to progress. My lessons are tailored to fit their needs rather than teaching them in a uniform fashion.
I love teaching, and appreciate how a relationship can be built and the lesson can be customized when you are tutoring one-on-one or with a small group. I have seen that this attention gives the student an opportunity to express confusion about or mastery of the topic and be seen as a developing individual. I value the human side of education and do not just see it as an industry.
ACT prep can be a difficult thing. First, we must establish a base score. Then, we can work together on each section to determine what factors can be practiced to perfection! Skills we may work on include: time management during the test, functional grammar, reading interpretation, math problem solving, and scientific essay interpretation.
I primarily teach college-bound high school students looking to boost their English scores on the SAT/ACT. I also take students who struggle with essay writing, grammar, and reading skills and help them achieve proficiency. Lessons are interactive; I provide resources throughout each session and allow students to demonstrate their knowledge, ensuring the acquisition of skills at each step.
