Strive for success in reading/writing/SAT/ACT/TOEFL/IELTS

Having good studies means organizing meticulously and using time effectively. Having an MA in TESL and a BA in English indicates that I have proven study skills. Developing effective study skills requires organization, planning and prioritizing needs. I have been successfully tutoring students for eight years for exams such as SAT, ACT, TOEFL and IELTS, and teaching ESL for 25 years, which shows that I can enable students to plan their studies, work to deadlines, target weaknesses and make them into strengths, and follow through with feedback and encouragement.

My goal is to make my clients life-long learners and good study skills are key to that objective.

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]

Master Tutor for Test Prep (SAT/ACT), Physics with Customized Lessons

I have had and developed good study skills as a tutor, but especially as a grad student getting my Ph.D. Study skills are methods to increase a student's ability to study smarter and retain information over a longer period of time. I would put it that I am experienced in correcting a students disorganization. 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]

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.

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]

Energetic and Engaging Spanish Tutor

I have been a middle school tutor for many different children and currently mentor a number of high school students whom I have met through my work as a substitute teacher. In many of these sessions, the student and I focus on how to effectively study the subjects they are immersed in. I work with them to develop strategies that employ the use of many different study resources, including flashcards, reference books, online quizzing and class/group review sessions. We also concentrate on study methods including time-to-task management and structuring, effective note taking/annotating and cre [more]
