Retired Aerospace Engineer. Professional Tutor for Math and English.

As a Kumon Instructor for 11 years, I taught every aspect of Math and English. During that time, I have taught hundreds of students, from children and teens to young adults, to understand how to study and learn on their own. I have also taught these students to write excellent college applications and essays, and many of them have been accepted to top tier schools. I was the principal instructor for a major test preparation company for a number of years, and I am certified to teach test prep for the PSAT, ACT, SAT, GMAT, and GRE. For more than ten years, I was an instructor for Math, Reading [more]

All Elementary/Middle School - ADD/ADHD - ABA Therapist

Study skills are best taught each session by demonstrating what works with the client. I assist my clients by helping them set up a good environment for completing their school work, free of distractions. Add to that ideal approaches for completing assignments and tackling challenging material. I also show my clients how to do effective searches on the Web. My goal is to make my clients life-long learners and good study skills are key to that objective. I love working with elementary and middle school age kids and have been a private tutor for the last eight years. I take pride in my ability [more]

Learning Can be Fun! Tutoring ESL, PESL, German, Portuguese, Test Prep

I have a Bachelor's in Education from U.H. (2000), which included coursework in teaching time management and study skills, so I've been helping students in these areas for many years. In May 2013, I completed a TMOSS (Time Management, Organization, and Study Skills) training program through MLC, so I'm armed with great new methods and materials to help students improve their time management, organization, and study skills. Hi, hallo, ola! My name is Christina and I've been teaching for 19 years, doing what I love, from instructing German at the University of Hawaii, to teaching ESL in Austri [more]

Ph.D. At Your Service

Greetings, I am that teacher you had that loves her (or his or their) job so much that you never questioned why they chose a career in education. I left a promising career in the business world to get my M.A. and Ph.D. because I felt called to the classroom. And I have never once regretted it! I am an academic, but I like to think of myself as a professional thinker. My personal and professional studies have been steeped in the humanities, which means that I have mostly kept busy by readin... [more]

Experienced, professional tutor in languages & other subjects

I have always been an A student, from high school all the way through to my Ph.D. studies. However, my grades do not come to me easily: I credit my grades to my hard work and dedicated studying using efficient and effective study skills. The methods I use are the following: - I read passages/books twice. The first time to get a general understanding and look up words I don't know, a second time to answer questions I am asked. - I highlight key sentences and main ideas in passages/books, and even key words in questions to make sure I do not stray from the question asked. - I take thorough notes [more]

Sciences, Test Prep, English & Math, Literature, and Biology

My passion for teaching was founded by my own experience as a student. Throughout my academic career, the challenges I encountered refined my own approach to understanding subjects, and the ensuing success after overcoming such obstacles brought me further love for learning and those subjects. I want to transmit that feeling of accomplishment to students as they master their own subjects, and hopefully foster a passion for further learning and success in any of their other endeavors. As a to... [more]

I help you master Math and Science

My professional background is project management and operations management. Both require attention to detail, seeing the bigger picture, organization, planning, and communication. I have been a tutor for many years and have used this expertise in helping students plan ahead, develop and apply consistent study habits. Often students fail because they are overwhelmed, do not know how to organize their time, plan ahead, or just need someone to help them bridge the knowledge gap. I teach students how to find answers, be self-sufficient and know when to ask for help. [more]

Teacher Muse (grades 2-9); math, writing, ELA, core, and more...

I have a CA CTC Multiple Subject Professional Clear Teaching Credential. I've taught mostly in the middle school/junior high school environment. The study smarter skills conundrum that is part of the middle grades, 5th through 9th grade piece can be resolved. I am familiar with the pitfalls of long term due dates, I have experience working with students to record assignments, and I have witnessed many times what does and doesn't work for tweens. I also have single subject authorizations in the areas of Language Arts (reading & writing)/English and math to help students extract information [more]

Enthusiastic Tutor for Math and Chinese Mandarin, Great with Kids

I have tutored elementary school and middle school kids for more than 6 years and study skills are always a major part of my teaching. These important skills, to name a few, include time management, priority setting, test-taking, notes-taking, content outlining and workload balancing. I have taught kids how to prioritize their work based on due date and grading weight, how to plan ahead and learn divide and conquer techniques. I have also taught students when studying for a test, as they read through the material, how to sense what questions are most likely to appear on the test so that they [more]
