PhD before 30, specialize in English, Biology and Statistics

I grew up on the east coast, and have always loved learning and teaching. As a child, my teachers frequently had to tell me to stop helping my classmates. I got my undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland in Plant Sciences and English. While there, I worked at the Writing Center helping other students with their papers and as a sophomore, was chosen as a teaching assistant for a 170-seat lab course. I stayed for my Master?s degree and ended up teaching two to three lab sections per ... [more]

Ivy League Tutor - SAT and ACT preparation

Having completed a 4 year degree at a challenging Ivy League University, study skills and organization were an absolute must. I have one year of experience with tutoring study skills. My approach to tutoring is informed by my past academic struggles. When I was a freshman at Princeton, I quickly realized that my high school, located in an economically depressed area in south Texas, had not adequately prepared me for the diverse range of college coursework. Having had to overcome that, I know the frustration and self-defeating strategies--like procrastination--that students often develop and [more]

I love teaching and unlocking the clues to learning.

Every teacher must teach study skills in order for her students to be successful. During my teaching career I spent a great deal of time helping students to find the right way for them to be able to succeed in school. We all don't study the same way, so it is necessary to learn what works best for each child. I have a General Elementary Credential, for both California and New York. I have had 20 years of teaching experience As a retired teacher, I realize how much I miss working with students and finding the clues to how they learn. I believe there are many ways of learning and often it i [more]

English, Study Skills, ESL

I taught remedial courses which included study skills for 30 years. I also took specific training in this area. While in college, I tutored students who were in need of assistance. I also taught English at the University while earning my Master's in English. When I attained my position as a professor at a college, I was responsible for setting up a tutorial program which proved to be successful. I enjoyed teaching all aspects of English which included grammar, essay writing, critical analysis of literature, and basics such as phonics and ESL. I have a California Teaching credential K [more]

Advanced tests like GRE? Math? Piano? I love helping students!

I really enjoy helping students reach their goals. Your goal may be "getting" math. Or doing better on a hard test than you ever have before. Or improving your English. Piano-playing is also a joy -- as much for you to learn as for me to teach. Let me help you learn better by making the most of your strengths and overcoming your weaknesses. We set up a plan just for you. You can measure your success along the way. You may need to meet twice weekly, or only for a few se... [more]

Experienced, knowledgeable, versatile tutor will make it work for you

Through 13 years of teaching and tutoring, I know there are basic study skills: time management, good environment, note taking, etc., all of which I have taught for years. Through 2 levels of learning styles training, I also know that while some students benefit from silence during study, others perform better with music in the background. Time of day is also a factor, as is the type of lighting and the environment. Some students work best in a library cubicle, others might do best lying on the grass in a park. Some students need less stimulation to concentrate, while others actually need mor [more]

Tutoring Tailored to Your Learning Style & Unique Needs

Two kinds of learning are taking place during the encounter between a tutor and the tutee/student: 1) WHAT ? the subject or content of the information being studied; and 2) HOW ? the process of exploring information, asking questions, making hypotheses about what might happen, and assessing what worked and didn?t work. BOTH are important. As a teacher or tutor, I believe it is equally important to facilitate the development of a mindset of curiosity and the tools to find information and p... [more]

I have tutored different learners who are home educated for the past 16 years and have experience with different styles of learning and study techniques including auditory, haptic and SQ3R. Study skills must be tailored to the kind of learner you are. Note taking techniques can also be tailored to the best way you learn. There are many effective ways to learn information and to prepare to excel in your classes. I have studied at 4 major universities while pursuing advanced degrees and also teaching at these universities. I have much experience also as a home schooling parent whose children att [more]
