English coach for high school-college essay writing/speaking

As a former 5th grade teacher, I know that good study/observation habits are the basis of success in everything we do. "Paying attention" is most of the battle in acquiring knowledge. The secret to paying attention is being interested in what the teacher or book is saying. How do we do that? For history, government and social studies, for example, we need to take notes on key facts and ideas. Review what we have written and summarize by rewriting the main points. I have a BS in Education, and also have an English major. When I help a student with grammar, it's important to begin with what th [more]

Experienced and Knowledgeable Ivy-League Tutor

With over ten years of experience in tutoring students in a wide variety of subjects, I believe that my biggest strengths as a tutor are my ability to improve my student's problem solving, critical thinking, and studying skills. I am a proponent of active studying techniques, meaning that I will work diligently with my students to continually improve their ability to absorb and to readily recall important concepts to help them to improve within their subject area. Rather than passively engaging with the material, I help my students to make study flash cards, to take better notes when reading [more]

Digital Design & Art | Reading,Writing, Speaking & Listening

Perhaps the most useful thing you learn at college is to become an auto-didact - to be able to teach yourself. It certainly was where I went to school, and it's something I stress to students in my present capacity, as both a department head and an instructor. Sadly, many of my students arrive at college lacking effective study skills - 'school skills' I call them: active listening, note-taking, the ability to ask a question, managing the assigned reading, their choice of seating. I advise them to dedicate a specific location at home for study, one free of distractions (phone, tablet, TV, s [more]

Award Winning Educator: Speech & Writing

My doctorate in education (1983) included a slate of educational psychology courses, several of which focused on study skills. I'm a full professor, having taught communication, English, phonics, writing, and much more for the past 37 years. Moreover, between 1990-1997 I designed and taught study skills for entering college freshman, including pedagogical methods in comprehension, synthesis, application, and knowledge. I designed competency based-learning for most of my courses and have won several awards for them. I am exceptional at facilitating, recommending, and teaching a plethora of skil [more]

English teacher (20 year career in education)

I've been teaching English since 1993, teaching all levels from 7th grade up to college Freshman Composition. Many of my students over the years have not had established and efficient study habits. We've had to develop study skills that work for each individual student. I have been able to help students learn to set aside time, without distractions, to carve out a study space at home (with the help of parents), and to organize their materials for optimal results. I?ve also taught students how to chunk information, so that it?s not overwhelming. It?s also important for students to learn the [more]
