Professional math tutor, College Alg, SAT/ACT, Placements, K-12, ASVAB

I have worked well and successfully with students to help them develop and use proper study skills, from preparing flash cards, outlines, proper note taking, diagramming, etc. I show the students how to properly prepare for a test and quiz. I have developed a check list for test-taking skills which I review with the student prior to a test. I review the student's notes and binder for organizational guidance, and review the student's homework planner on a daily/weekly basis as needed. If given the opportunity, I review the student's test/and or quiz to make sure they understand their mista [more]

Patient Tutor- Specialties: Math, Science, and Learning Disabiliities

I have been a tutor independently for the last two years and reinforce study skills with students. We go over test taking strategies such as underlining key words, and circling words such as "except" in the phrase "all of the words below are verbs except." I also stress using a planner and keeping an organized notebook. Another study tool I use with students is graphic organizers for prewrites. I teach students how to look for key terms when reading a history or science text and also how to answer questions at the end of the chapter. All of these tools help to make the student more successful [more]

UC Santa Cruz Alum Specialized in Editing & English

I'm Emily! I graduated from University of California, Santa Cruz with a Bachelor of Arts in English Language Literature. When I first started college, I intended to receive my degree in Marine Biology. However, at the end of my freshman year, after taking a couple of English courses with remarkable professors, I realized I was much more passionate about the English language. Throughout my time at UCSC, many of my professors had very unique, yet accessible, approaches to the literature and cou... [more]

AP physics, chemistry and math tutor

It's a deceptively simple term to describe such a complicated issue. People learn in different ways and the skills are ultimately personalized habits that work, consistently, from subject to subject and test to test. Personally, I work best with mnemonics, pictures and experimentation. For others, splitting notes into different colors or standing to solve a problem works or talking themselves through each concept. It's important to find what works, make it a habit and then refine it for greater success. After college, I completed a teaching English as a foreign language program at UCI, and [more]

UNMATCHED Professional English Services!

I routinely help all my students with their study skills, so it simply makes sense that I be certified. I stress organization and time management and consider myself adept at instilling these both in children and teenagers alike. I believe that time management and prioritization skills are among the most important things an individual can develop for him or herself, and I stress their importance to students in many ways--including, but by no means limited to, self-efficacy, independent work, structured lessons, and neverending encouragement--and expectations.

English/writing Tutor

As a former high school English teacher and college admissions counselor, I am well-versed in assisting students with their study skills as well as time management skills (the two are closely linked). I teach students how to prioritize assignments, "decode" essay/assignment prompts, and break down tasks into logical and specific components. I also teach them how to read textbook and literature assignments so they look for important elements first and then the secondary details. I review different learning techniques, depending on the assignments or tests. [more]

Knowledgeable, Creative, Credentialed English/ESL Tutor

Developing solid study skills is critical for success in school and in life. I have found that three of the most important tools are: goal setting, organization, and time management. Students often approach studying in a haphazard manner, overlooking the importance of planning or organization. I have many years experience helping students develop their study skills. My students have improved their grades and their ability to concentrate and remember important facts. I guide my students through the process and assist them in establishing a system most effective for their purposes. I stress th [more]
