Reading Jumpstart

As a resource teacher in middle school, I taught study skills daily. One of the most important skills was use of a planner to track assignment completion. Another important skill that I taught was taking large assignments and breaking them into smaller parts. I am retired from teaching resource in California. I love helping students learn to read and I am good at it. My favorite thing about tutoring? The kids, of course, and seeing them learn. Seeing eyes light up when a child "gets it." Seeing the self esteem go up too. I was trained in a unique program through UC Berkeley. We learned t [more]

During the time I spent at Huntington Learning Center, I tutored students in study skills for all subjects, in addition to focusing on math, English, and exam prep. Focusing on time management, clear organization of classwork, note-taking techniques, and proper test preparation helped my students to succeed.

Jeff, Geologist, Historian, Continuing Student

Study Skills I have taken many high school, college and graduate-level courses in various subjects. I have met intelligent students with differing approaches to learning and studying for exams. Some students have photographic memory and in their mind see the printed text; others will study the professor and predict what to study, and some students will write out every sentence of a chapter subject to a test. I know that writing out the content of materials needing to be studied, and outlining, are effective techniques in learning a required subject matter. The more personal involvement that y [more]

Preparing Students for CRTs in Math, Reading, & Writing

I am well versed in the Cornell Note Taking process and find it very helpful for struggling students. A brief summary of the process: After the notes have been taken, the student writes a brief summary in the bottom five to seven lines of the page. This helps to increase understanding of the topic. When studying for either a test or quiz, the student has a concise but detailed and relevant record of previous classes. When reviewing the material, the student can cover up the note-taking (right) column to answer the questions/keywords in the key word or cue (left) column. The student is encoura [more]

I am qualified in study skills as I have been a high school teacher for 16 years. I am organized and teach organizational skills as I believe it is huge when it comes to understanding what is expected from a teacher and in the classroom. I believe in active participation such as flash cards and making models, etc. to help the student learn. Good note-taking is a must as well as giving oneself the time to review. If the student isn't just learning the material for the first time the day before the test, that is beneficial. Time-management and proper preparation are very important in helping [more]
