The TAKS test: it's supposed to measure what you know, but in reality, it tests your ability to take tests as much as the knowledge you're supposed to be able to display. I can help your child build the confidence in his or her ability in both topic knowledge and test taking skills to help him/her excel. I've helped students work on their skills in both private and group settings. I look forward to hearing from you. When it comes to studying, it?s easy to get into the habit of just following along in the textbook. As a former Congressional Aide and an educator, I know that we can do better. Af [more]

During my student teaching in Spring Branch ISD (5th and 7th grade Reading/ELA) and subsequent years as a classroom teacher, I practiced TAKS/STAAR testing techniques each semester, with heavy emphasis in the spring. Furthermore, I tutored students who were targeted for academic weaknesses based on benchmark test results. These group tutoring sessions would occur 2-4 times per week for an hour to two hours after school, depending upon need. I like to approach prep for standardized testing as simply another genre students utilize, as studied and practiced through my certification and Master' [more]

I am qualified to tutor for the TAKS English/Writing test because I taught composition for 28 years and observed remarkable improvement among the students I taught. I also worked in Austin, Texas, evaluating writing tests taken by various elementary and secondary grade levels, as well as evaluating writings for the purpose of college placement, suggesting credit or non-credit courses for the students who were entering college. I am quite familiar with how TAKS tests are scored, and I gained lots of insight into what students need to do in order to achieve success with TAKS writing. I have tau [more]

The intent of the TAKS exam is to test some but not of the subject content objectives. My content area is math. I would utilize some of the released math TAKS exams to determine specific content knowledge and to determine where more reinforcement is needed. The goal would be to determine how to tackle specific content type problems and to review specific TAKS testing techniques in order to improve the probability of success. I have been a math tutor for five years. I also worked as a middle school math teacher in a high needs school for one year. I believe in the UPS - check method of solv [more]

During the past six years one of my roles in the classroom has been to assist students in the preparation for the TAKS. This has included guiding students through assignments that carefully calibrated their level of competency. Essays, short stories, journal entries and current events reading were often the methods used to prepare students and classes for the demanding nature of the exam. Their ability to understand complex sentences and the word structures that were contained in any given writing were among the methods used to determine their level of comprehension. For math, the studen [more]

During my years of teaching and the time that TAKS was in force I taught classes in the subject. My strength was to work with the students who had failed the test at least once and generally more than once. My success rate in getting the students to pass was around 97 percent. I am a retired mathematics teacher who spent 38 years in the educational system. As a master teacher I have worked with students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. My experiences have been in three states, rural and urban schools, private and public schools and even a juvenile jail. On the state test, TAAS and TAKS, [more]
