Effective English Tutor Focusing on Reading, Comprehension + Test Prep

As a learning specialist, I have long worked with students with particular focus on study skills. Such attention begins in the identification and management of effective executive functions that surround the time and space of study, and continues with effective study methods for the learning to be mastered. Skill development and strategies of study are determined by discipline (subject), the task, and the performance of learning (writing, analysis, calculations, etc). For example, in the mastery of expository texts for quiz or test, one might first review the structure of information given [more]

Patient & Effective English and German tutor

I struggled with study habits and academic motivation as an elementary and middle school student, until I painstakingly devised my own study habits (with the help of a mentor) and subsequently excelled. Every student will study and organize their time differently to be the most productive. I help my students examine various methods of studying and decide how best to use their time. Let's work it out together! As a dedicated lifelong hobbyist in several areas, including music, foreign languages (I have studied Italian, French, Spanish, Russian and German), creative writing, and dancing, I love [more]

Individualized Tutoring to Meet Your Needs!

In addition I helped them through the study skill process. I have experience teaching at the college level as an Academic Coach and Adjunct Professor, as well as teaching at [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. Other times it is motivational and I work to create a rewards system to reinforce positive and consistent study habits. I have spent the last year mentoring/tutoring at UC Berkeley and am now the coordinator of the program. Hello, I have my undergraduate degree from Berkeley in Anthropology, and two masters degrees from the University of Pennsylvan [more]

Loving Learning

As a student at Harvard, most of the instruction I received was focused on techniques needed to access as well as analyze information. My experience as a master classroom teacher and tutor for the past eleven years has given me the opportunity to hone these skills. Hi there!

I have worked with incredible students of all ages and backgrounds. I received my first degree in Humanities from UC Irvine. There, with the help [more]

Semi-Retired Teacher

From the University of California, Berkeley, I earned a Master's Degree in Language and Literacy Education and a Reading Specialist Credential. I taught Independent Studies for high school students full-time for seven years and am considered NCLB "highly qualified" in all academic content areas for high school. This background should prove sufficient for me to qualify to teach study skills, having successfully navigated through post-graduate level study challenges, including a major 'thesis seminar paper' involving considerable study. Thank you. [more]

Great writer with background in art history and psychology.

I was a professional college-level note taker for students with disabilities and got the opportunity to become an immaculate note-taker, which of course makes studying just that much easier. I have techniques like note-cards, imagery, and let's not forget - reward systems. I was awarded a position on the Dean's List three-years-running for outstanding GPA at PSU, and have gotten all A's in four terms of graduate school. Hi there! It's so nice to be here to help. I'm currently working as an in-home therapist for children in foster care, in a community mental health agency of Oakland. I graduat [more]

K-12, Bilingual, Reading/Language Arts, Mathematics Tutoring

As an elementary school teacher for 13 years...and substitute and other teacher for 5 years beyond that...I constantly taught students ways to study effectively in order to learn subject matter being taught to them. These include memorization, repetition, multiple exposures, paraphrasing, teaching to others in a small group, and even reteaching using more basic teaching language. In 1985, I left one career and began another. I moved from a clerical career to a teaching career. After one year in the Mills College graduate teacher training program I graduated and obtained my teaching credentia [more]
