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]

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]
