Encouraging, Positive & Highly Educated Tutor

My graduate education in Honors Philosophy and Literature (which included substantial reading and essay-writing), along with my post-graduate law school education and legal writing experience provided me with my vast vocabulary. I not only know the definition of many words in the English language, but also, I know how to teach a student the meaning of more words by showing them how to look them up themselves and further use them in sentences. I also teach my students the importance of learning synonyms so that he/she is able to find the "right" word to convey ideas. Using the "right" word, [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]

Curriculum for Struggling Readers, Writers, ESL, and TOEFL test prep

I became a tutor during my undergraduate studies. During this time, my children were in elementary, middle, and high schools. Over the years, I frequented their schools as a volunteer and realized that the number of students struggling with reading, writing, and English had continuously increased. Initially I went back to school to facilitate these student populations with English, but I began teaching adult English learners through a local tutoring program and expanded my knowledge of learni...

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]
