Ph.D. Tutor: K-9 Reading, Math, Writing, Test Prep, Special Needs

Successful students possess good study skills. These include organizational, time management, and motivational skills. Although some students appear to acquire them naturally, others need help developing and practicing such skills. Students need clear expectations, structure and routine. In past presentations to parents and educators, I have discussed the importance of organizing information, reading directions, recording assignments, setting up a study area at home where all supplies are kept in one place, and using a weekly planner. The homework area needs to be comfortable, equipped wi [more]

Accomplished Writing and College Essay Tutor

I taught writing, English, and literature on the college level. I also have helped many high school and college students do well in their high school or college classes by scheduling regular study sessions, where I emphasize planning, regular note-taking/review, and ensuring comprehension. In writing-intensive classes, I also emphasize the writing process and show students how to sequentially put together a paper. My students consistently report increased confidence and higher grades. I am a professional writer of commentary and literary essays. I have worked as a columnist and essayist for Ne [more]

Reading, Writing, and ESOL Tutor

I have nearly 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I have a master's degree in teaching English to non-native speakers, and, through that program, I developed expertise in a variety of techniques, strategies, and teaching approaches. While my focus is on reading, writing, and ESOL tutoring, I have also developed homework help programs in a public library setting and worked with individuals and small groups to scaffold and improve overall organizational and study skills across all subjects. I tailor my approach to meet the specific needs of the student. [more]

History, Social Studies, English, and Test Prep tutor

Developing good study skills is important for leaning any subject. As a graduate student who graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School and undergraduate education at Fordham University, I demonstrably have the study skills that are needed to pass high school and college. I can help a student learn more effectively, help to increase comprehension of the material, how to manage time efficiently, and I can help a student not only in drilling for a subject while I am there to help, but to help the student develop good study habits which will last for his or her entire academic career.

Certified Teacher for English, Study Skills and Test Prep

Study skills are important for every student and I often include tips on this topic with my students who are seeing me for other subjects. I am skilled at helping students manage time (creating to do lists and schedules). I am also familiar with important note taking techniques (such as SQ3R). From teaching exam prep for the past two years, I have learned various test taking techniques as well. I already require my students to stay organized, and I prove to be an example of organization for them, as I keep detailed records, I am always prepared for the session, and I keep track of all previous [more]

College Adviser & SAT/ACT English/Reading Tutor - Harvard Grad

While knowing subject content is important, the best way to excel academically is to learn how to study well. Be it for the SAT, a Regents examination, or a classroom test, using study skills and knowing HOW to take exams is one of the greatest markers of success. I have been able to raise student PSAT and SAT scores over 100 points based on study skills alone, with over 8 years of experience. I began tutoring while at Mount Holyoke College, where I led a volunteer tutoring project in West Springfield, MA, and tutored children in high needs areas. [more]

Creative & energetic tutor for your struggling reader

I have worked with students of all ages for many years but only recently have made the career switch to teaching. My focus has been on all aspects of literacy but I am certainly able to tutor in all subject areas K-3. While working with your child to provide support, the most important goal is to develop a set of effective study tools that he/she will come to implement instinctively. My students have always found me to be fun, energetic and supportive. Together, your child and I will determine his/her learning style and set up concrete goals & objectives. [more]

Experienced, enthusiastic, patient.

I have years of experience tutoring study skills, helping students improve them. How do I do this? A good tutor is one who can make any subject clear, and study skills is no exception. It's not mysterious: First, I help you organize your tasks and then do them one at a time. While we work, you don't worry about all your tasks - you're focused on this one. This keeps you from getting overwhelmed. If needed, I also help you estimate how much time the individual tasks will take, so that you know what you're dealing with. "When we I be finished with this?", "Should I take a break?", etc. [more]

Teacher by Day, Tutor by Night

As a classroom and support teacher, I spent my days working with students in strategizing how to best succeed. We create checklists, graphic organizers, and time tracking sheets. I encourage flexible seating in the classroom and at home. I assist each learner in finding a place conducive to studying. We establish a system of work time and body breaks, so that the student comes back to his or her work ready to learn and succeed. This is my fourth year teaching in Manhattan. Before that I taught at a private school in Connecticut and international schools in Shanghai. I am one of the founding [more]
