Hands-on Education in Elementary Reading and Math

Study skills require the student to first grasp the whole picture of the subject being studied. Next the main ideas along with the details need to be extracted from the material Once this is accomplished the student needs to reread the material until familiar with it. To guarantee the material has been retained (hopefully in long term memory), the student needs to review at a later date. As an elementary teacher for 12 years, I have developed expertise in K-5 reading, math and writing. Early in my teaching career I was a title I teacher, instructing grades 3 to 5 in math and reading. I then be [more]

Reading Specialist

I have been teaching study skills for over twenty years to students in elementary school through college. When providing study skills instruction I focus on specific study skills techniques such as SQ3R (Survey, Question,Read, Recite, Review). I also teach specific note-taking strategies such as two column note-taking and outlining as well as organizational skills, strategies and homework implementation. Another important study skill area on which I enjoy focusing is test-taking and test preparation. I generally provide students with a five day test preparation plan and give them tips and i [more]

Experienced Middle School Tutor Specializing in Algebra

Hi there! I'm Sy. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology Pre-Medicine. The funny thing is, I liked mathematics more than science. Nevertheless, my favorite subjects ranged from Genetics, General Psychology, and Art History. Why was this range of classes all my faves? Because the teachers had structured, engaging classes that made grasping the material attainable and enjoyable. The content of all three of these classes is still a part of my general knowledge as an adult, and ... [more]

Reading, Writing, Arithmetic--and Self-esteem!

Tutoring study skills run the gamut from organizing time and materials to traditional study techniques of note taking and outlining, techniques of working on the most difficult subject first, to highlighting key words. Study skills also cover tricks for memorizing, such as creating a mnemonic device or even an acronymic sentence. Or a student could make up a song about the material, act it out, and a host of other memorizing techniques. The key is to de-stress students, help them not only get organized, but also how to stay organized. Learning how to chunk materials is also key to study skil [more]

Achieve your Dream

I have been teaching students K-12th grades and am certified to teach in the State of Connecticut. This experience has often included helping young people who are reading, writing or understanding math with difficulties below their grade level. Or, in many cases, students who can understand most of the assignments but struggle with certain areas such as "I read it, but I don't get it", "I wrote it, but I have no idea what I wrote", or "I put it in here but I can't find it". I provide step-by-step plans and goals toward mastery and achievement along with strong study, organizational, and not [more]

Elementary Reading, Writing, and Math Tutor

As a classroom teacher, I offer explicit instruction on close reading strategies, vocabulary development, and organizational skills. These all tie into study skills. As a teacher and independent tutor, I've worked with students to help them tackle complex problems for SBAC and CMT state testing. It is important to help students dissect test question expectations, engage in flexible thinking, and transfer their knowledge between tasks. My background as a certified teacher and tutor qualifies me to teach students study skills. [more]

Caring and Effective Math and Science Teacher

I have taught study skills for middle and high school students for over 15 years. My tutoring style includes clear presentation of needed concepts and skills in a variety of formats including visual, auditory and hands-on-experiences. In the initial meeting with my student, I assess the present understanding and skill level of the student. Then, I formulate an individualized teaching plan to build upon the current skill level of the student. Incorporating review and repetition with encouragement and success has usually proved to be a winning approach. While I served as ... [more]

Retired Elementary School Teacher with Special Ed experience

I am a licensed special education teacher. Some of the issues in teaching study skills that I have experience with are time management (keeping calendars and using reminders) developing a plan to approach a project, how to review for accuracy, teaching how to summarize, and find the essence in a reading passage,memorization tricks, and helping students with exam taking strategies. After 25 years of public school teaching I have retired from the classroom but my interest in helping students to succeed and learn has not diminished. I am Nationally Board Certified as an Early Childhood Generalist [more]

Working for Success

I have been a special education teacher for 7 years. I work with students on organization and study skills on a daily basis. There are many different ways to help students who struggle in this area. You have to look at the student as an individual before making a decision on which technique would best suit him or her. I absolutely love working with students. I believe each student is unique. Every child learns in a different way, and I try my hardest to have them succeed in their own learning way. I plan to work with each student as an individual. Each and every student is unique in their lea [more]
