Veteran Literature and Writing Teacher Broadening Horizons for JK-12

For fifteen years, I taught English Literature and Writing to high school students. Many, if not all, of my lessons combined the need to balance analysis and creativity, with the final outcome seen in a variety of forms: quizzes, tests, projects, presentations, writing. A desire to impart the power of working with both sides of our brain is also part of my philosophy, and my goal is to help students achieve this balance. Whether students need guidance with literal vocabulary, or help with the more abstract puzzling of ideas, my lessons and my teaching honor the fluidity of communication [more]

Writing, Reading, and Critical Thinking for the Humanities

I have seen the difficulties that students have with writing from several different angles. I teach (and grade papers!) at the college level, and have been doing so for ten semesters, in 100- and 200-level and adult education courses. As a result, I know what your professors will be looking for! The classes themselves have been philosophy, literature, and writing courses, which all involve critical reading and writing, so I have been teaching those skills as part of those classes for just as...

Experienced Certified Teacher: Italian; English Writing Skills; ESL

I love grammar and spelling, and I spend much of my spare time playing online competitive Scrabble, as well as reading an eclectic assortment of books. Nothing pleases me more than teaching English to both native and non-native speakers, and watching them make progress in leaps and bounds. Since grammar and spelling are often left by the wayside in our schools, I am more than happy to fill in the gaps for my students. I have taught English as a Second Language and English as a Foreign Language for a total of 17 years. I do feel that English as a First Language is underrated. No subject is mo [more]

Online Tutor - UCLA Grad, Math B.S.

I specialize in teaching English to those whose mother tongue is not English.

I have many other young students and also have experience teaching adults conversational skills. ***ONLINE TUTORING INQUIRIES ONLY*** My initial training in UCLA's Graduate School of Education and Information Studies' Teacher Education Program was intended to prepare me to teach secondary (middle [more]
