PhD. Reading/spelling/writing (certified Barton Reading)

I got my Ph.D. in psychology and taught psychology at the college level right after grad school. It was in that setting that I first began working with students on study skills. But the need for effective study skills begins long before college. When I homeschooled my own children, we worked on study skills, actually from a fairly young age on. But study skills become increasingly important as students move into middle and high school. A student's ability to do well in an academic setting is often more a function of his/her study skills than it is of some natural aptitude in a given subject. [more]

Enthusiastic, Experienced Teacher+interested student=SUCCESS

I was in charge of special education and have taught study skills and organization skills to students from elementary to university levels. I completely re-designed the study skills program for Southwestern Illinois College. I have just returned from the Philippines where I was the Headmaster of an international K-12 school with 170 students. It fulfilled my life long dream to lead an international school with a strong academic and fine arts program. As you can tell by my photo I am highly experienced as a teacher, father,and grandfather.

Skilled English Tutor Specializing in Reading, Writing, and Test Prep

As a young woman who completed her BA Cum Laude and her MA Summa Cum Laude, I am no stranger to good study skills and hard work. I also had the opportunity to teach positive study skills at Huntington Learning Center to the students I worked with, especially the junior high and high school students. I taught students how to make flash cards, how to read for significant content, and how to study for tests. While I tutor a variety of subjects, I particularly enjoy working with students who are preparing for the verbal and writing segments of the ACT, SAT and GRE. I have found that these standard [more]

Nathan (experience in Special Education, elementary Education)

It is vitally important for a student to have good study skills and as an aspiring student growing up, I had to learn good study skills to get me through school and college. Study skills are the meat and potatoes of learning in that if you do not have good study skills, you cannot learn in an efficient manner. I have experience in teaching study skills through working with students on a one on one basis who struggled with study skills because of special needs and challenges. I am a certified Special Education and Elementary Education teacher. For the last 6 years I have taught at Whittier Prim [more]

Mandarin Chinese made easy, and ESL for all!

It's amazing what having the right study skills can do to improve grades and knowledge retention. Having a "plan of attack" before going to a lecture or reading a textbook chapter can help you stay organized and focused during learning. Study skills are also critical for practice and review of learned material. Some tried and true study methods I'm a fan of include knowing how to make efficient use of reference materials such as dictionaries, glossaries, bibliographies, and online sources; breaking down material into chunks or timelines by doing chapter outlines and bullet lists; making flashc [more]

Tutor who believes it takes a big heart to help shape little minds

Throughout my education, I have had many struggles with study skills. Growing up with severe anxiety in school and ADD made it very difficult for me at times to stay organized or manage my time wisely. Through this, I have learned the importance of having a study schedule and, depending on the student, mapping out the times and areas to study to reduce stress on the student and help them take their education in their own hands. I am currently going into my junior year at Illinois State University for an Elementary Education. Being one of the oldest of 9 siblings, being around children has been [more]

Study skills are the practices used in learning. These can include reading, writing, listening, copying, and doing over and over. All involve concentration and thinking skills. Studying usually means having a quiet place to study with a desk and a lamp, knowing what type of skills the individual needs to study in the most effective way for them. Some people are visual learners, some are auditory learners, and some are tactile learners. Study sessions should be set up with these needs in mind. [more]

Language Arts, Writing, Grammar, Biology, ESL, Grades 1-College

When I tutor a student in understanding proper study skills I utilize an array of different methods. I incorporate the SQ3R technique, which has the student survey, question, read, recite, and review the material, such as a chapter in a Biology book. Employing this method helps the student understand the chapter while reading and decreases the time and stress in attempting to understand the material immediately before a test. I also assist in organizational skills because it is correlated to better study habits. [more]
