PhD Teacher, Researcher, Counselor, Nurse

This subject covers academic, emotional, and psychological preparation in test taking. Students will be taught how to identify key words that will enable them to choose the correct response. They will also be taught how to read between the lines in order to comprehend, improve vocabulary, and ultimately succeed in formal written tests. As a teacher and tutor, teaching students study skills is part of the job. As a school counselor (MEd in Counseling) who makes, administers, and scores tests, teaching/helping/coaching students to successfully hurdle the test is second nature. Having success [more]

Special Educator ready...willing...and able to help!

I have helped several students with study skills. We usually begin with teaching students how to be organized. I also show them various methods of how to keep track of assignments. The most important skill that I show students is how to take notes and study in order to retain information. I received my Special Education degree from Liberty University. I possess a Master's degree in Special Education and I am the Executive Director of a learning center. My organization provides academic interventions in the home or in a center, to youth ages 5-21. All of the students that we serve have IEPs, 50 [more]

Tutor with a "Tom Sawyer" approach.

One of the most disappointing things a student can hear is, "You are smart, but you aren't applying yourself. You don't study enough." There is any number of reasons why someone has difficulty studying, and the one I cover here is how to study. I approach this skill from the point of view of a person who had poor study skills and had to learn good ones. I moved on to become a strong and successful student, graduating at the top of my class in high school, college and graduate school. I understand the difficulty students have in developing good study skills and I can help them. Studying is [more]

Retired Seasoned Teacher-40years successful tutoring

Part of training for the teaching of gifted and high ability students was to understand their specific needs. Many gifted students need help with organizational skills. Using a variety of strategies, assistance is given to students to help them in this area. Helping them to understand their self-efficacy allows for better grades in school. I have had over 40 years of successful tutoring and have taught for over 35 years with VBCPS. Elementary education is my main background, however, I do have a passion to work with special needs students, specifically those with ADHD, Aspergers, and those chi [more]

Rodders--General Education

I have tutored pupils in remedial reading, writing skills, and phonetic development using the Abecca system. Currently, I teach students with learning disabilities, which is intensive in the area of study skills. One technique I use includes helping students to develop a flip-fold study guide using lined paper. This enables them to retain information. For auditory learners I teach fun but meaningful word associations which might include music. For kinesthetic learners I use hands-on visual aids. [more]

Very experienced, motivating confidence-builder

As a teacher with close to forty years of instructional experience, I have taught secondary mathematics, grammar, writing, social studies, and classroom driver education. No matter what the subject is, for a student to meet all grading requirements of any class, s(he) must know how to confidently take notes, keep them organized, induct main ideas from facts, and remember these ideas. As a professional student currently with a bachelors and working on a masters degree, and as a successful teacher who has closely observed the many ways students learn and relearn what they forget, I know a succ [more]
