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]

Software Engineer, Game Developer, Math and Humanities Tutor

My study skills allowed me to gain two bachelor's degrees in very challenging subjects. I was able to successfully modify my study approach that I used in high school, to be able to complete a degree in a highly respected technical school. Even since getting into the professional world, I have continued to study and learn. I studied for and attained an Oracle certification in Java and a JLPT certification (a certification for the Japanese language). Besides certifications, I have used study skills to learn new skills and programming languages on the job. I am actually putting together an e [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]

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]

Full-Time Tutor in Economics, Statistics and Standardized Test Prep

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]

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]

Becoming better in writing and language skills

Most students who fail to graduate from college do so because they use ineffective study methods. Developing effective study methods and skills is particularly important for students entering college because of four ways in which college differs from high school: a. College is more difficult. For example, the material studied is more advanced and more complex. b. College is less structured in that greater responsibility is placed on the student for independent, self-regulated study. c. College requires more long-range planning. For example, exams are scheduled weeks in advance and require adva [more]
