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]

Experienced Teacher: ESL, Learning Disabilities, Reading, and More

For the last nine years I have worked with two students, overseeing their work in all subjects, helping them schedule their study time, and helping them break down overwhelming tasks into smaller ones. As a trained teacher with a Master of Education degree, I have a broad understanding of how to help children learn. My approach is to help students with as much structure as they need, with the goal that, over time, they will gradually be able to structure their studies themselves. I have 20 years of teaching experience. I taught math and science in middle school, as well as ESL to adults. For t [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]

Tutoring for Personal Victory

Tutoring to help students with study skills is very important and rewarding. Helping young people learn how to time manage and effectively put their efforts into advancing themselves academically is critical to success in the classroom. I have worked with many students who lose focus or lack confidence at a vital moment. By helping these students put first things first and keep on top of what is being asked of them they can accelerate into a successful learning experience. Sometimes a student needs to practice details. At other times it is sustaining themselves through the difficult part [more]

Psychologically-Oriented--ADHD and Learning Disabilities

I am almost finished (2 classes left) with a master's degree in psychology. I have been tutoring study skills to a wide variety of students for over ten years, including students with learning challenges, such as ADHD or Dyslexia.

I offer a very high-level of tutoring that is far more comprehensive than what most tutors offer. In addition to my English degree from U.C. Berkeley, I am also clo [more]

Ready to guide students to success through tutoring!

Having worked with a wide range of students and being a student myself, I understand how difficult it can be to find a study method that works. However, there is definitely a method out there for everyone - whether it's hard for a student to sit still while studying or whether they are an audio learner - I have developed lots of study methods and can therefore pass these skills onto my students. For example, I had one student who was having trouble studying with index cards and realized quickly that the student was more of a visual learner. For each index card, I had the student draw a picture [more]

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]
