I have a passion for reading and I love to share that with students. I have taught Reading classes for the past 15 years. Students should be fluent, strategic readers.

My 15 years of teaching experience, love for learning and National Board certification have helped me develop excellent knowledge of the learning process. These experiences have taught me to actively engage students in their learning through discussion, hands on activities and writing, which will lead to academic growth. I am fami [more]

Mandarin Chinese made easy, and ESL for all!

The main reading skills are comprehension, speed, and critical evaluation. Sometimes reading comprehension can hinge on a tiny word or phrase, such as "and vice versa", or "in some circles". You can't miss those, or you will misunderstand the point of the material. Studying these phrases in context will improve comprehension. Reading speed is also a skill I can teach you- scanning and skimming can come in handy when the amount of material is too large. Reading for knowledge and reading for pleasure are two very different things, but I've found that if you start by learning speed reading skills [more]

All aspects of Biology, ACT/ SAT/ GED/ GRE Prep., Math., Biostatistics

As a former volunteer tutor at Springfield High School (as well as area junior high schools), I am conversant with the coursework structure and standardized assessment of Illinois (high) school students; and have firmly established that which I master the art of conveyance in, and (most importantly) that which I don't. Thusly, the student's time is assured to not be wasted due to unfamiliarity with actual, regional scholastic norms. As a research projects mentor for many high school, u... [more]

Special Education Elementary Teacher with 17 years of experience

I have been teaching for 16 years. I tutor kids daily in a small group setting or on a one-on-one basis. All of my students are struggling and/or behind their grade level peers. Teaching in a small group setting helps me to know exactly what the students need to succeed in school. My students leave my room feeling more confident and capable of doing grade level work. This is why I love tutoring. I have a master's degree in Reading. I teach reading, writing and math to my students. I have ... [more]

Knowledgeable Tutor for test prep, English, Math, and Philosophy

I love reading and I can help students love reading as well. For those who do not love reading, but need to learn skills of reading comprehension for studies, I can help them learn how to understand their texts and how to find the main ideas of the author's arguments. I have read and written many kinds of written works and I know how to decipher evidence, arguments, rhetorical devices, and grammatical constructions, and I can help students do the same. All my life I have loved learning and I very much enjoy teaching others and helping them to come to an understanding. Though teaching is my [more]
