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 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 try to approach learning in a dynamic and thoughtful way. I think that memorizing facts is a nearly useless activity. Instead, I believe that cultivating original thought and organizing those thoughts into solid writing is the best foundation for education.
I have received a graduate diploma of National Oil Academy. Also, have numerous certificates of practical seminars, training courses which helped me to improve my professional skills. During my work, I use different methods and techniques for better understanding and high results of my students.
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 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.
For test prep, I start by having the student take a practice exam. This can be done on their own time or during one of our sessions. Based on the exam results I will develop a plan of action for the student based on his or her needs.
My teaching methodology is based on tailoring lessons to each individual learner's need. Each student learns differently and needs a slightly different approach. I am experienced at modifying curriculum to suite a learner's need, interest, and learning style.
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 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.
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.
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.
Bachelor’s, Master’s in Arts, English Language and Literature; International TEFL Teaching License, 180 hours, in-class, post-graduate course; Lesson Structure: Preview, Presentation, Practice, Evaluation, tailored to the individual challenges facing each student; Teacher's expertise: English for academic purposes, TOEFL and IELTS preparation.
I base my classes around the specific areas the student needs help in. I focus on getting to know what areas the student struggles in, and tailor a lesson from that information. I also focus on professional communication and educate students on how to write and speak in a more professional, polished, while still unique voice.
After getting to know a little about the student, I have the ability to develop a study plan that suits his learning style. Once the plan is in place, I can teach the student how to develop study habits that will improve his performance in the subject. I help the student build confidence and to have a positive attitude when it comes to learning something new instead of giving up.
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 firmly believe in individualized teaching/learning. What works for one does not work for all! I carefully customize my tutoring to fit the student's personal needs.
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.
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 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.
My teaching method tends to be discussion based but I adapt to meet my students' needs. Students can expect a variety of small and large group activities (based on class size), creative projects, critical analysis, and materials that are related to lived experiences and the larger society.
