Multi-Subject Tutor

Words are power. For the ESL learner as well as for the native English speaker, expanding the vocabulary is an important part of any English lesson. Every lesson includes certain new words; and depending on the study section it will be the main focus. To get a grip on vocabulary I work with my students by looking at synonyms, antonyms, sentence completions, analogies; flash cards can be made into a game. What I bring to my students: I have been a coach for many years and worked with students of all ages and skill levels. I tutor English and German, teach ESL, and coach students in their te [more]

Anne S., French

I believe that I can help a student with English vocabulary because I speak with fairly sophisticated words in my regular speech. I read a lot as well, and I constantly learn new words through this medium. I believe that I can help a student improve his vocabulary by encouraging him in using synonyms, homonyms, and antonyms. I am a French native and a credentialed French teacher. I was born and raised in France and attended the Sorbonne University in Paris before moving to the Bay Area. I have been teaching at all levels of high school, community college, as well as after-school programs for [more]

Exceptional Elementary 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]

K-12, Bilingual, Reading/Language Arts, Mathematics Tutoring

My experience teaching vocabulary is as follows. I have taught 13 years as an elementary teacher. My vocabulary teaching methodology has included the following. I've introduced the words and definitions. I have given students an opportunity to use the words in sentences. Then, again, when encountering the words in their reading. Another activity is looking up the word in the dictionary and locating information about the word then writing such down on a paper. In 1985, I left one career and began another. I moved from a clerical career to a teaching career. After one year in the Mills C [more]
