Experienced teacher supports student success in skill building

I have been tutoring and teaching students in vocabulary study for many years. I take a multifaceted approach. Root study helps students cluster words and translate unfamiliar words from increasingly familiar components. Sentence completion exercises require students to consider definition and connotation within a framework. Figuring out words in context is learning vocabulary in the most natural way. Synonyms, antonyms and analogy have a game component that can keep interest while negotiating unfamiliar words. There is still advantage to drill, despite its monotony. [more]

Certified Tutor in Most Subjects:SAT/ACT/GRE/SSAT/ISEE Test Prep, Math

As a college consultant and standardized test preparation expert, I know how important vocabulary is. Most of the tests we encounter as we prepare for college are very much vocabulary-driven. I have several vocabulary programs that I recommend to my students, including one that I created. I also have several proven vocabulary-building techniques that have helped students develop an Ivy League vocabulary. It works for any student who wants to grow a college-level vocabulary, and it is excellent preparation for acing the SAT / ACT / GRE / SSAT ISEE. [more]

Italian and Spanish teacher

I have been a language teacher since 1997, and that has given me the opportunity to explore the world of words. Whether teaching primary grades or on the college level, using and spelling vocabulary properly is vitally important in order to communicate well. Over my academic career (a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy as well as a Bachelor of Arts, a Licentiate and a Doctorate in Theology) and teaching experience (St. John's Seminary, Brighton, MA; the Athanaeum St. Anselm in Rome, Italy and the Gregorian University of Rome), I have been made sensitive to the power of words and I wish to hand t [more]

Harvard Grad, SAT, College App Essays, Elementary (K-8) Teacher

Precision in written and spoken English is essential to every mode of communication. Additionally, having a large rich vocabulary can keep your writing and speaking fresh and dynamic. It is never too late to build a rich vocabulary. At the elementary level, building a rich vocabulary starts with reading challenging texts and books and looking up new words in the dictionary. I also like to use some vocabulary-building video resources that make the acquisition of new vocab fun for young learners. At the high school, college, and professional levels, having a rich vocabulary is essential for m [more]
