Exceptional Elementary Educator Extraordinaire!

Various study skills are helpful to students in different ways. Working with my two stepchildren, I have instilled the use of "planners" and time management to help them stay organized but also helps them to prioritize which subjects to work on first for homework. I find to help with memorization, repetition is important such as writing something out a few times and re-reading key points. The use of acronyms and mnemonics also helps with memorization. I will also use drawings/diagrams and small summaries to help condense concepts. Also, I enjoy the use of flash cards to help with memorization [more]

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]

Anne - Passion For Tutoring People With Dyslexia

I have years of teaching study skills and test taking skills as a teacher and as a tutor. As a teacher, most of my need to teach study skills was teaching high school subjects in an Adult Education program. As a tutor, the greatest need to teach study skills has been tutoring special needs students in K-12. I am interested in all the new research on how the brain works, in particular how memory is stored and how recall works. I apply this to teaching. I am an experienced teacher and tutor with three credentials. Two of my credentials are for adult school and one is for community college. One [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]

Dedicated and Engaging Tutor in Multiple Subjects

I think I can tutor kids in study skills because my anatomy teacher in high school also had a huge part of the class emphasize study skills. He would teach us how to study based on the skills he learned in medical school. Every night you should review what you went over for the day for just 5 minutes. By the time a test comes along you will have retained so much more of the knowledge from class without even realizing it. And even if more studying is necessary you should go 5 minutes on, ten off. This will help you remember more of the things you are trying to. It also helps to study different [more]
