Multi-Subject Tutor

No need to fear the endless hours of staring at your books; studying does not have to be a drag! I especially enjoy designing study plans that meets the individual needs of a student using a holistic approach, in collaboration with the student and the parent as the situation requires. The basic ingredients of efficient studying are tailored to the student's individual situation. My expertise in the area of study skills is based on the course and successful completion of two graduate degrees(Science of Education and Counseling) and the guidance and coaching of my own children towards their own [more]

Exceptional Elementary Educating Extraordinaire!

Various study skills are helpful to students in different ways. Working with my two stepchildren, I have instilled the use of "planners" and time management to help them stay organized but also helps them to prioritize which subjects to work on first for homework. I find to help with memorization, repetition is important such as writing something out a few times and re-reading key points. The use of acronyms and mnemonics also helps with memorization. I will also use drawings/diagrams and small summaries to help condense concepts. Also, I enjoy the use of flash cards to help with memorization [more]

I will help you perfect your English Language Arts skills!

As a peer tutor during college, I emphasized time management as a priority assignment, concentrated on reading and comprehension of the lesson objective and appropriate note-taking either as an outline, flashcards or Cornell notes. I differentiated my tutoring style to accommodate any learning challenges (such as ADHD or dyslexia) and used scaffolding whenever appropriate for the lesson. As a high school substitute teacher, I employ one or more of these study habits every day with students. I have earned a B.A. in English; and I have Teaching Credential in English. I am also a published poet [more]

K-12, Bilingual, Reading/Language Arts, Mathematics Tutoring

As an elementary school teacher for 13 years...and substitute and other teacher for 5 years beyond that...I constantly taught students ways to study effectively in order to learn subject matter being taught to them. These include memorization, repetition, multiple exposures, paraphrasing, teaching to others in a small group, and even reteaching using more basic teaching language. In 1985, I left one career and began another. I moved from a clerical career to a teaching career. After one year in the Mills College graduate teacher training program I graduated and obtained my teaching credentia [more]

I grew up in a family of readers and I learned that the mos... [more]
