Writing, math, test prep and much more

Because I have spent nearly twenty years teaching multiple students with varying learning styles, I am well versed at helping students develop study techniques that work for them. Some students are visual, some are aural and some kinestetic. The key to developing good study skills is to figure out which techniques work best for a particular student. Some of the study aids I have employed in the past include flash cards, color coding, mnemonics, and good note taking. I am a magna cum laude graduate of Samford University. I have been educating my own children for the last 20 years and have two c [more]

Experienced high school, college and special needs tutor

Hi, I'm Shane! I hold both a Master of Science degree in Professional Counseling from Concordia University Wisconsin, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Studies from Illinois State University. As I've reflected back on my time in college, I have realized the value of both quality professors and tutors who took the time to explain difficult concepts to me. They had the compassion necessary to help struggling students, and the knowledge required to clarify and illuminate subjects in a way... [more]

Experienced, Highly Qualified Teacher - Subject/Test Prep Tutor

As a veteran special education teacher, it is very important to emphasize study skills. Furthermore, I taught several classes multiple years on this subject ("Compensatory Skills"). In these classes, we reviewed multiple subject areas and also went over test-taking strategies, study habits, and organizational skills to increase learning. I spent approximately 10 years in the education field. I have a B.A. in Sociology and a Master's in Special Education. I have experience working with all types of students, from elementary needs to adult learners. My years spent in the Special Education classr [more]

ACT; All subjects grades 1-6; Most secondary math & science courses

I have taught numerous Study Skills and Strategies Lab classes, which focus on helping students improve study and test-taking skills. The most exciting and rewarding parts of teaching for me are the moments when a student who has been studying and working hard, but still struggling with a concept or type of problem, has the "Aha!" moment; the moment when I can see that look of understanding and comprehension light up the student's face. I have seen the same look in students of all ages and backgrounds. It is a thrilling moment for the student, of course, but also for me, because I know that th [more]

Reading Comprehension and Problem Solving Strategies

As a special education teacher I often have to help students complete graphic organizers. These organizers are used by the students to separate and/or group information so they can process and understand what they must learn. Along with graphic organizers, I encourage students to regularly make note cards. The note cards cover recent lessons. Not just what the teacher said, but they are encouraged to note things that they consider important. They also note ideas/concepts that confused them. They make the cards regularly and build in time (daily, every few days, weekly) to review them. The rev [more]

Each of us have different strengths and weaknesses when it comes to learning. Some students learn best by SEEING, others learn best by HEARING, and others learn best by a "HANDS-ON" LEARNING approach. I can tailor our lessons to the areas you are stronger in, and help you improve in areas that are not your dominant learning style. This first step will help your general STUDY SKILLS. In addition to that, we can work together to improve general study skills such as organization, time management and scheduling, and TEST TAKING skills. I also help with ways to beat "test anxiety," and help y [more]

Undergraduate & Graduate Nursing Tutor- Specializing in NCLEX Prep

I have been tutoring students in study skills since 2008. I teach from a wonderful book that has many excellent approaches to becoming a better student. I have increased my own GPA from a 2.00 to a 4.00 using these methods. Although the book is aimed at 12 year old and older, I have taught these skills to both high school and college students. I was once asked to include the skills/book in a introductory course on a college campus. I have an associate degree, a bachelor's degree and a master's degree with the help of good study skills. I now have a Doctor of Nursing Practice in Education [more]
