Experienced Reading Specialist with M.A. in Educ./Reading Disabilities

As a Master's level certified reading specialist, I know that a good vocabulary becomes even more important for students (4th grade and up) to use as a tool to comprehend increasingly difficulty reading material and literature. Most students do not understand this and just feel that knowing the definition of a "word on a card" for a test is what is important. However, it is much more important in reading and analyzing text, as it contributes to reading comprehension, in both fiction and non-fiction text. In order to learn the meaning of a word, the first thing a student must do is use syllab [more]

Patient tutor for Math, SSAT/ISEE, ACT/SAT, GRE, and Foreign Languages

I have been helping people increase their vocabulary all my life. I have always been drawn to words and languages, and it is a personal hobby to learn more about words and their meaning. I have been formally tutoring students since 2011, and I have helped them increase their knowledge of the basic elements for words in English, of how Latin/Greek roots are incorporated into more complex vocabulary, understand the origins of certain types of words and use that information to identify the meaning of an unknown word, and more. With my help, your student can learn the tactics and rules behind incr [more]

Experienced, Patient, all ages Teacher: content areas, Spanish, ESL

For 22 years I supported elementary curriculum in all subjects for students in grades K-5 who were learning English. Since they needed vocabulary for all content areas, I taught the words students need in all subjects. I have special expertise in making vocabulary comprehensible, since I taught students who had the additional challenge of not being fluent in English. I can explain and give examples that will help students learn new words and understand complex ideas. I have also been a private tutor for a high school student whose first language is not English. I have worked with her on academ [more]

Professor: Writing, SAT Prep, College Entrance Essays, and Literature

There are very specific strategies and ingredients that make an argument sound, an analysis important, and an essay excellent. In the years that I have taught Composition and Literature at Vanderbilt and Georgia Tech, I have developed a program that breaks down the process of reading and writing into discrete, manageable bits that every student can master. I taught at Vanderbilt University from 1993 until 2004 and at Georgia Institute of Technology from 2004 until 2007. I have also worke... [more]

Over the past few years, I have helped numerous math students raise failing grades to A's, tackling everything from basic arithmetic to advanced calculus. Factoring problems? I'm your man. Don't understand congruence proofs? I can help. Over-intimidated by trigonometric identities? I've got you covered. I always try to help my students understand new concepts in terms of those with which they are already familiar. I patiently break down new formulas and processes until they look like familia...

English and Math Tutoring

As a young boy, I had a learning disability. I was a slow learner and required extended time on my tests. Since I learned differently from other students, I needed extra help. This "help" came in the form of several outstanding tutors. Whether it was proofreading a paper or cramming for an algebra test, my academic success is because of their efforts. They are the reason I went into education. I have been tutoring since 2010, and began professionally tutoring in 2011. Most of my experience i... [more]
