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]

Not afraid of Virginia Woolf or math formulas!

Having tutored high school and college students in English, math, and other social science and humanities subjects, I certainly appreciate the value of showing students how to improve their study skills. Whether this involves breaking a research paper effort into several steps, or setting up a schedule for managing a full load of classes, or efficiently memorizing terminology--I've had to do these things myself throughout my education, and I have experience in sharing these techniques with the students I have taught or tutored. I enjoy helping students to maximize their efficiency in order to [more]

UCB Grad & HS Teacher: HS/College Subjects, Math, Test Prep, etc

Between homeschooling and public schooling through high school, I always had grades that were some form of an "A". I now attend UC Berkeley. I know how to juggle academics, athletics, and miscellaneous extra curricular activities. I can show students different methods they might employ to stay on top of their material. Methods I may teach include using a timer, reward system, task list, highlighting, Cornell Note-Taking, how and where to seek supplementary materials, and understanding what should ideally be completed before attending classes or meetings with teachers and tutors so that student [more]

Latin, Ancient Greek, ESL, TOEFL, SAT/GRE Verbal Prep, Essay Writing

I am prepared to teach study skills for all levels, particularly for languages. Language study can be frustrating, whether it is a grammatically complicated language from antiquity or a modern language which involves speaking. Over the years, I have developed methods of studying languages which help maintain interest and promote efficient learning. I have personally studied Turkish, Ancient Greek, Latin, French, and German seriously. I have also been a tutor for Latin, Turkish, and English. On a more general level, aside from being a long-term student myself, I have five years of university le [more]

Patient, Effective, and Fun

I use the SOAR methodology for 3rd through 12th grade. With this I cover goal settings, the learning styles, and relative and unique strengths of the student. We work on organizing a binder, places to study, and time management by means of a planner. Finally, study and note taking strategies are learned. I generally prefer to use about 10 to 12 hours of instruction. Are you frustrated with your performance? Or do you just need a bit more help? I like making learning fun, interactive, effective, guilt-free, and stress-free. I've been tutoring lots of students of all ages. I'd love helping you [more]

UPenn Double Master's Students Who Wants to Help You or Your Child!

In tutoring for studying skills I focus on personalizing the lesson to be tailored to the students particular problem area. Often it is as simple as scheduling which homework assignments should come first based on difficulty as well as due date.

Reading Recovery Trained, Experienced Professional

I am a retired elementary school teacher and school principal. I have designed curriculum, instituted school-wide academic programs, as well as serving as a mentor and teacher trainer.

I have tutored for decades at all grade levels, and teaching students how to study, to stay organized and to do well on exams are all specialties of mine. My personal academic record proves this point. One of my current students is a doctoral candidate in epidemiology and she consistently score [more]

Double Masters Certified History/English Teacher WRITING

Besides my own experience of studying for and receiving adequate marks on the GRE, Masters level Latin American History and America West comprehensive exams, and the literature and social studies Praxis exams, I insist on using the Oxford comma -- though, seemingly, ninety-nine percent of U.S. publications do not. Perhaps my adherence to logic binds me to continue to use an essential punctuation mark that largely remains ignored, much like I outrightly refuse to use the ampersand, which seems to have grown more popular since the birth of "texting" on cellular phones. Additionally, I do have [more]
