Test Prep Master & Scholar w/ Over 20 Yrs Experience, 50+ Subjects

My penchant for polysyllabics started young, borne out of a natural curiosity about the origins and meanings of words. Later, it was my study of Latin and other Romance languages that fomented my vocabulary and love of philology. With my students, I use a variety of tactics to instill in them new vocabulary: understanding word roots, suffixes and prefixes; identifying associated words and derivatives; and recognizing, wherever possible, common idiomatic expressions or turns of phrase that allude to a word's definition and connotation. Although it is reading, of course -- with an attentiveness [more]

English Nerd and Tutor

I'm a big word nerd. I took 6 years of Latin (over 60% of the English language is derived from Greek and Latin!) which fed an interest in etymologies and gave me lots of help with understanding words and their derivations. I think language is fun and important, and would enjoy working with your student to improve and broaden his or her vocabulary. Hey there! I am a teaching assistant in the Wheaton College English department where I work regularly with students on writing assignments and assist the professor with grading. I also work at the college's Writing Center, where I meet with both unde [more]

All Elementary School and Middle School subjects

I enjoy learning new words and look at the web site dictionary.com since they give a new word every day to learn and to use. It is important to use different words and not always say big or good and try some other different, better or not often used words. I currently am a certified teacher from K-9th grade and teach all elementary grade classes along with Middle school and some high school Math classes. I also have an undergraduate degree from DePaul University in Chicago in Accounting and I also took a number of extra math classes. I have also been a substitute school teacher in the Valle [more]

English instruction from a professional editor/published author

English is a wonderfully absorbent language. It loves neologisms, and it is very comfortable adopting vocabulary from other tongues. English is an inclusive language, and learning its vocabulary is a true pleasure. Examining the etymologies of words, for example, can provide the literary detective with many wonderful surprises. I am a professional editor, publisher, and author with more than 25 years of experience in the field and as a teacher of English composition, editing, literature, and creative writing. I earned an MFA in writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago [more]

Over Thirty Years of Teaching Middle-School English

I would tell my students that there was nothing wrong with speaking like a third-grader. If they were in third grade. When I saw them in eighth, I told them that they should sound like an eighth-grader. But how? Along with formalized vocabulary instruction, stressing reading and using context clues does much to grow vocabulary. Supplying time for that to happen was key. Sometimes students would wonder why they should learn new words because they had no problem communicating. My reply? While you may control your word choice, you don't control the choices made by others, and it isn't the [more]
