Exceptional Elementary, And Middle School, Educator Extraordinaire!

I believe strongly in constantly expanding one's vocabulary as it subtly shows your education. A vocabulary is the "meat-and-potatoes" for communication and obtaining knowledge. Having an extensive vocabulary is a common denominator in being able to comprehend a certain language as well as write and speak that specific language, such as English, for example. Also, for those preparing for their SAT exam or ACT exam, one of the sections is writing and having a good vocabulary will help a student in diction, grammar and usage. Reading helps increase a student's vocabulary, too. [more]

Not afraid of Virginia Woolf or math formulas!

The best way to develop a large vocabulary is to read, read, read! Keeping a little notebook of "new" words and jotting down a short definition (preferably in your own words) and reviewing these words once a week will work wonders. I can work with students on getting to know some Greek and Latin word origins, learning the meanings of specific prefixes and suffixes, and learning how to get the most use out of what a good dictionary offers. I have worked with students of all ages and levels, from preschool through graduate school. While I have expertise in teaching reading, literature, writin [more]

Credentialed French teacher with English, English-language development

As with any teacher, knowledge of vocabulary is crucial. I find this true as both a French and English-language development teacher. It is important to teach students how to use academic language.

I am a California credentialed French teacher with a BA from University of the Pacific and twelve years teaching experience with all levels of French to Advanced Placement. I worked for the company that built the B.A.R.T. trains and software as a contract writing assistant and int [more]
