Personalized Tutoring to Your Learning Style

I taught Study Skills in a class setting and as part of a science class. I use those tools to teach students to become more organized in their studies. Included in study skills for core classes, I teach test taking skills and ways to counter test anxiety. I am a retired high school science teacher. I've taught all levels of high school science? in regular classes, summer school and night school. I also raised and coached my five children through Washoe County schools to graduation. I am a Nationally Board Certified Science Teacher with a minor in Special Education (Learning Disabilities). [more]

English, Reading, Writing, Computer Application, ESL, Spanish

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]

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]

Math and Science Teacher

As as special education teacher for two years, a major component of my teaching was teaching study skills on a daily basis. In addition, I was s therapeutic child care worker for a youth group home for three years and a key component of each child's treatment plan involved improving study skills. Encouragement, organization, memorization games, daily skills review, Cornell notes, rewards, etc. are some of the main methods I utilize in assisting students with study skills. Please let me know if you need additional information. [more]

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]

Math Chemistry Physics Distance-learner friendly!

Personally struggled for years until I sought out help and implemented systems that work. Focus on simple habits backed by science to yield best results. I?m Brian. I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor?s degree in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, a minor in Biomedical Engineering, and a minor in Business. The courses I enjoyed the most were taught by professors who could make the material come alive by insightful clarifications, examples, and help. I aim to bring this insight to my tutoring by introducing and reviewing content in multiple ways, providing memorable and relatable exam [more]
