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]

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]

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]

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 am currently only accepting new students who are available for tutoring sessions at my home on weekday mornings [more]

Some of the areas are time management, organization, note taking skills, test taking strategies, establishing study habits,keeping motivation high, and removing any negative mindsets, attitudes, and beliefs. It boils down to organize and prioritize. This requires help in finding and [more]
