Patiently making sure you understand!

The very first college class I took was a Study Skills class. In it I learned some of the basic strategies I was already using: note-taking, reading for understanding using paragraph structure to determine the important points, mnemonic tricks for memorization, engaging multiple senses for greater retention, and more. Probably the best study skill I keep coming back to is frequent review of the material -- by keeping the subject active in my brain, letting my mind "perk" on it, it becomes more familiar and easier to recall. In my years of teaching I have used many of these tenets in pres [more]

Chemistry, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Writing...take your pick!

My familiarity with how the mind works gives me a heads-up on study skills. For example, the typical attention span of a college freshman is about 20 minutes. Beyond that, performance sharply tails off. So in spending two hours studying, I would insist a student take a five-minute break every 20 minutes, to get up, move around, and take some deep breaths. It pays off. This is demonstrated by my tutoring sessions, where the hour includes ten minutes of break time. I have found that different subjects require different approaches. Math and physical sciences (chemistry and physics) are pro [more]

English made easy

I have taught three study skills classes. I also served on a committee that wrote a study skills manual that was used for the entire school where I taught. The manual was part of the school's focus on helping all students achieve their potentials in research and study skills. After more than 25 years of teaching, studying, writing and enjoying English, as a native speaker I can help you with grammar, writing skills, ESL, public speaking, reading or phonics. I love teaching and learning, and I have taught students from ages 2 through adult; students with special needs including accelerated lear [more]

An A+ Educator you can rely on for results

I have gained a lot of experience in gaining and applying study skills to various courses while earning my B.S. and M.A. degrees. In the past, I have helped students plan out their semesters and perform "maintenance" as necessary. This could include going to the right SI sessions, cutting back on extracurriculars, making a new plan for where, when and how to study, mnemonic tools for moving large amounts of information into the student's long-term memory, etc. I'm confident I can help you to master your courses and learn the skills that will help you through no matter what topic you may be stu [more]
