Let's Learn Using Your Best Learning Styles!

Study skills include the "regular things" like taking notes and listening in class. But did you know? There are some study skills that many students never utilize! A key area that is overlooked when students are struggling to improve is a student's learning style(s). Many teachers/tutors have studied "Methods and Materials", but how many have actually taken the time and thought to better prepare to assist their students by taking a course specific to learning styles? Having struggled at some subjects myself when I was in school, I have learned to find my own "best learning style" for a subj [more]

Samuel's Simple Studies

To begin, Ironically, I have tutored in State Center's middle school back in 1996. Originally, my job was evaluating trouble students. I turned my office into a tutoring and social area for kids to, at the minimal, have increased self-esteem about themselves. As a result, I found their grades significantly improved. During my undergraduate studies, I often ran study groups and would condense class information for others and created a specialized "text to class" check list. To illustrate, I would read each chapter according to the Syllabus, create a list of all major topics contained within th [more]

Personable and Helpful Elementary Substitute for Reading, Writing

In college there were units in Psychology classes that discussed various ways to study. I experimented with several till I found what worked for me, which I discovered incorporated several different approaches. Personal motivation, team work, repetition, taking occasional breaks that could involve physical movement, and rewards are important aspects of studying. I am currently student teaching in a 4th grade classroom and will finish at the end of this month (February). I will then be substitute teaching in area schools as I work to complete the exam required to receive my Iowa teaching licens [more]

PreK - Elementary Reading, Math, Handwriting, Study Skills

I give children a work plan where they check off their choice in the different curriculum areas, and may also write in something they would like to do or study. The children are then held accountable, and put their work in a folder. I also give children an extended work time without interruptions, where they may move freely about the classroom. When I tutor a student I make sure they have a quiet place in which to work, with plenty of work area and as few distractions as possible. We divide up the homework time into smaller segments where the child may take a short break between them. I also t [more]
