Experienced teacher supports student success in skill building

Although students today have the luxury of spell check, that does not mean spelling correctly is irrelevant or out of date. There is still value in honing spelling skills. Some people seem to learn correct spelling by osmosis: see the word and forever know how to spell it. For others spelling prowess comes only after systematic study, a few tricks and lots of practice. Although English is notorious for patterns that only work some times (I before E with a list of exceptions), combining auditory analysis, sight memory and rule and pattern application increases spelling accuracy.

RPI Grad For Math, Physics and Engineering Tutoring (All Levels)

It's spelling. It's mostly memorization. In 4 years of High School, 4 years of College, and 2 years of Graduate School, I learned innumerable things about a wide variety of topics, but the most important lesson I learned was this: the students who get A's are not necessarily the most naturally gifted in the class, but are the almost always the hardest workers. Sooner or later, everyone finds themselves struggling to stay on top of their classwork, and when that happens, it's the diligent, not the brilliant, who come out on top. Tha... [more]

Certified Tutor in Most Subjects:SAT/ACT/GRE/SSAT/ISEE Test Prep, Math

Many people discount the importance of spelling ? especially in our age of word processing and spell-checking software. However, I know that good spelling is necessary if you want to become a good and fluent reader, and compelling writer, or a robust communicator. As a test-taking strategist, I know how important spelling is to help you determine the etymology, and therefore, the meaning of words. Good spellers simply perform better on standardized tests than non-spellers. This means, on average good spellers will perform better on the SAT, ACT, GRE, SSAT, ISEE, ?

Harvard Grad, SAT, College App Essays, Elementary (K-8) Teacher

With modern technology such as the spellchecker, one might think that the teaching of spelling is outmoded. On the contrary, however, spelling is essential for a student's confidence in many aspects of literacy-based tasks in everyday life. Whether one is trying to look something up on the Internet, write a well-edited essay for publication, or look a word up in the dictionary, it is essential to know how to spell. With my background as an elementary teacher with training in phonics, reading, and literacy, I can help you learn the rules and exceptions for English spellings. One of my favor [more]
