Older Educator

Being a former Chemistry and SAT-preparation high school teacher, I have spent considerable time helping students learn how to study. This might include improving their study environment, organizational skills, reading comprehension, and even vocabulary skills. With the use of the internet, the ability to get an answer from the homework helper websites has not helped the student understand the "why" of the answer. Improving study skills and concepts of learning can benefit the student. ****Preference for Online Tutoring Students***** Parents: I am an older educator, with a BS in Secondary [more]

Harvard grad with perfect SAT who coaches to 99th percentile results

I obtained a perfect SAT score in high school thanks to a self-designed study program, and I since have coached dozens of students to sizable score gains on their own standardized tests through precisely-targeted instruction. My summer/fall 2018 students increased their scores up to 120 points per section on the SAT and up to 17 points per section on the ACT. One of those students obtained a SAT composite score of 1590, and another student obtained a 35.25 composite score on the ACT. Drawing... [more]

25 years teaching; One of WyzAnt's Top Tutors, 2014 and 2015

My philosophy is that every student, no matter what grade, has a learning style that can be tapped into so they may reach their fullest potential. That specific learning style can be adapted to an equally specific style of studying in whatever subject. There's a wealth of strategies ensuring solid retention of material that go far beyond basic rote, e.g., the mnemonic link system, which I've seen work miracles with struggling students. For instance, the well-used "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas" is a fun, practical "menu" for getting all nine planets in their right sequenc [more]

Enthusiastic and Experienced Math, Physics and College Prep Tutor

I am currently teaching an accelerated Prealgebra/Algebra 1 class for students who are new to my school. A component of this class is introductory study skills, as many of these students have struggled to form solid study habits. I meet weekly with a group of students to go over skills including locker organization, note taking, and test preparation. I am comfortable with a variety of strategies and work with students to form habits that they can use to succeed as they move forward with their education. [more]

Ellen, Masters in Special Education, great with kids and adults

I have utilized numerous study strategies with my students. However, I am not going to mention every single technique right now. We have made flash cards with visuals and the definitions on the cards. Each subject would be on different colored flashcards. I have also included the page number of the text where the essential vocabulary words were located so we would not have to continually refer back to the book. I have also had my students create study guides in lieu of flashcards with numerous visuals. I have designed power point presentations to help my students review for tests. Some of m [more]

Tutoring for All Ages

I have a large amount of experience helping young students become organized (making to do lists, prioritizing tasks, keeping planners and staying focused) though tutoring elementary students as well as high school and college undergraduates. Furthermore, my experience as a teaching assistant has allowed me to mentor undergraduates as they transition into higher education classes. This includes note taking skills (I was asked to be a note taker for students with learning disabilities by the Academic Affairs Office for several classes while an undergraduate), study techniques (utilizing concept [more]

GRE Specialist! Available 7 Days a Week For Test Prep, Econ and Stats

I tutor students from grade school to graduate school, and I have found that each and every person benefits from coaching on planning and time management. Although each individual learns differently and faces a wide variety of challenges when tackling a new subject, basic time management and study skills help the student to overcome those challenges one step at a time. Many students are struggling because they are overwhelmed by increasing amounts of homework as they grow older. While some teachers DO assign too much homework, each student can learn to approach every task more efficiently and [more]

Special Ed Teacher Highly Qualified in Hist., Gov., Geom. & Alg.

Study skills and organizational skills are regularly taught by Special Education Teachers. This is especially true for those of us who teach students labeled EDLD. One of the core differences in teaching special education is the necessity of providing direct instruction in how to be a successful student. A large proportion of the students who are given these labels suffer from some form Executive Function disorders. By definition this means they have considerable difficulty with any activity requiring organization or sequencing. Thus, it has been a necessity that I provided such direct instru [more]
