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.

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]

Independent Educational Consultant

Through my self-developed educational system, my approach to study skills is to first assess how an individual takes in information. I assess the two sides of the brain for visual, auditory and motor skills. Secondly, I run other diagnostic tests to find out if there is an underlying reason for the difficulty in studying and organization. Focusing in on the skills that need strengthening avoids wasted tutorial time and individualizes each person's program. I am an empowering, former classroom teacher adept at working with students of average to high intelligence with a block toward learning. [more]

I spent many happy years in Glastonbury's 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades and have extensive subbing experience in grades 1-4. Reading, writing, and math are all favorites of mine.

Certified K-6, ESL, and General Science
