Writing, Critical Thinking, Literary Analysis, Test Prep, Applications

I've coached SAT and AP tests (ongoing) for two years. I've taught online (ongoing) for 12 years. My teaching philosophy is derived from my 30 years as a journalist, and experience in law school / legal reporting -- that studying requires *self-discipline*. You set a goal, build a study plan, accept a time frame, and then *execute* the plan. The key to studying -- as in most things in life -- is *organization*, being able to break down an ambition / goal into "bite-size" component parts. My WzyAnt reviews indicate that my approach usually works for students, whether writing an essay or stu [more]

Enjoy Learning or Improving Your English....really!

Following are some important techniques for building successful study skills: 1. Assess the student's current proficiency and academic level and customize a program for each student accordingly. Some criteria are age/grade level, academic history,favorite subjects/interests, daily schedule, study environment. 2. Offer techniques easy to undertake repetitively and independently along with a "reward" system to combat procrastination. 3. Adapt all classes to the student's current classroom needs. 4. Provide co-"study hall" with students to build success and stimulate motivation. [more]

Individualized Educational Services

I have worked with students from the upper grades on to increase their organization and help with study skills. The transition from elementary school to middle school is usually a scary one for students, and they are all mostly worried about dressing out for P.E. But what about going from one teacher to six or more? Helping students maintain a system to tack all of their assignments and notes makes it easier to work with their teachers and show mastery on tests and assignments! I can work with any student to create an organized binder and backpack so they are ready for anything that the day ma [more]

Fun tutor makes it easy to learn!

In teaching study skills I am able to employ a number of tools for the student to use in an effort to become better at studying. One tool a learner can use is to dedicate a certain time each day to study. That is, to set aside 30 minutes specifically to study each day. Another is to form a study group with a few class members. I also like to encourage the learner to make and use flash cards. In each case it is important to find a method that will work for the individual student and sometimes to modify and adjust the methods to each learner. [more]

Tiana - Psychology & Writing Tutor - Masters in Psych Graduate

I have my B.A. from Pomona College, (which Forbes ranked as the #2 college nationally in 2013). I received all A's and B's while at Pomona despite full course loads all semesters, a job at the career development office and being a member of the ballroom dance team. Learning essential study skills was a must and I have since passed these on to several other students. I have since fine-tuned my study skills in two David Allen "Getting Things Done" seminars. David Allen is one of today's thought-leaders in productivity. Main lessons I will teach include breaking larger projects into smaller, more [more]

Multidisciplinary Scholar With Teaching Experience

The foundation of all my tutoring subjects is rooted in good study skills. Taking good notes, learning to use textbooks and other resources fully, and independent problem solving skills are key to academic success. Study skills students will learn how to take and organize notes, create study aids, make the most of textbooks, and develop good study habits. Though graduating Summa Cum Laude, I wasn't always a good student. As someone who has seen the high costs of high school slacking and made a full recovery in my college career, I can offer key perspective to students who aren't living up to t [more]

Credentialed Teacher, M.Ed. Math Education, M.S. Mathematics (2019)

Having completed my two year teacher preparation program (10 units each semester) while also working as a full-time teacher, required that I be efficient regarding my use of time in order to be successful both as a student as well as as a teacher. During my third year of teaching, I was assigned to teach Spanish I and II, Algebra I and II, and Geometry, which meant that I had to prepare for five different subjects each day. During this time I was also preparing to clear my credential in an expedited (two years in one) teacher induction program that required additional work both inside and outs [more]

Skyler- Humanities Tutor and ESL Teacher

I currently have a 3.6 cumulative GPA in college due to study habits and skills that I have come to learn. I make flash cards, create memory games, rewrite notes, make sample worksheets, make online quizzes, re-highlight notes, etc. If I was to tutor a child in study skills, depending on their age I would choose one of these methods. I know that memory games work for all ages and are the easiest tool to help my learning. Hello, my name is Skyler and I teach English at an international school in Santa Barbara (EF) to high school and college-aged students. The courses I teach now or have taught [more]

Ivy League M.Ed. well-versed in math and humanities

Right now I am getting my M.Ed. with endorsements in Social Studies, French and also ESOL. Through each of these subjects, I have learned different strategies for helping students with their metacognition - thinking about how they are thinking. One of the most important skills I teach is how to decode a reading, i.e. looking for topic sentences, reading the chapter summary first, bold words, etc. I have found that most students are not taught skills like active reading or note taking, and yet are expected to perform them. I think any student can be a good reader with the proper schema in plac [more]
