Learn to Love to Learn with an Experienced, Creative Teacher

The first areas that I work on for a study skills course are time management, learning styles, and methods and devices that fit the individual's style. I have taught all grades from 1 through 12, and am especially experienced with secondary students who must consciously determine what works best for them to learn since rote memory is no longer the main issue; critical thinking and application are. In my thirty-five years of teaching, I have worked with students from first to twelfth grade, but more than half of that time has been spent with secondary students. My focus is reading/literature, w [more]

Study German, Russian, Polish or Czech with an experienced PhD

I have been coaching students in study skills since the 1980's, when I was a peer tutor in high school, helping my classmates write notes, study before exams and write essays. I continued this as an undergraduate, when I was a specially trained peer writing tutor at an Ivy League college. As an lecturer in a liberal arts college and teaching assistant in graduate school, I was also responsible for making sure that students knew how to study the material, which I did through leading discussions on readings and helping students take notes, study for exams and write papers.

Paolo: Writing Specialist for All Ages/Levels. Basic K-12 & More

Much of my work as an in-home tutor revolves around improving the overall study skills of my students in order to better motivate them to do their work outside of our time together. By getting to know each student on a more personal level, I am able to address their concerns and their issues that may be hampering their studying. I have experience working to help motivate students from 6-year-olds, to high school students who need to find a way to personally manage all their activities and subjects. [more]

Professional Elementary Education Tutor

As a classroom teacher, I have worked with students to find out what learning style best helps them to obtain the most information in the way that is best for them. Some students are auditory, some are visual, and some are kinesthetic learners. There are some that need more than one modality to help them learn. Once I discover which learning style(s) the individual student needs, I can develop strategies to help him/her best achieve success. I have been a full-time 3rd grade teacher in Arizona for three years. Additionally, I have over 18 years worth of experience as a guest teacher in gr [more]

Set Yourself Apart!

The different approaches to learning including organization, processing new information, retention, and ability to demonstration in settings to include instruction and evaluation. This set of skills is important in the academic process and critical to grasping concepts in a time sensitive world. Teaching these skills has been the backbone of my arsenal as an instructor of 24 years. The ability to react in a fire hose environment, and the discipline to stay the course during a slower pace are necessary to achieve higher learning in a classroom setting. This, coupled with repetition, approp [more]

Richard: Friendly easygoing teacher years of computer and ESL training

My study skills were abysmal in high school ? I was bored all of the time and with the exception of one teacher, I was never challenged in any subject. When it came time to take the ACT?s, I did no preparation and finished in the 97% to 99% range so I went off to college thinking that it would be ?a piece of cake?. I was so wrong. Suddenly, I found myself among a very different population then my small high school. I did very very badly and quit and joined the military. On my return from the military I got serious about study habits, techniques and structuring my approach to learning and [more]
