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]

Test Prep Master & Scholar w/ Over 20 Yrs Experience, 50+ Subjects

My penchant for polysyllabics started young, borne out of a natural curiosity about the origins and meanings of words. Later, it was my study of Latin and other Romance languages that fomented my vocabulary and love of philology. With my students, I use a variety of tactics to instill in them new vocabulary: understanding word roots, suffixes and prefixes; identifying associated words and derivatives; and recognizing, wherever possible, common idiomatic expressions or turns of phrase that allude to a word's definition and connotation. Although it is reading, of course -- with an attentiveness [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...

Experienced Writing, Math, English, and Composition Tutor

Hey there! I'm Ammar. I've been a professional editor for a year now, and one of the biggest things I've noticed is that many people think writing is something intimidating or daunting, or reading is boring and doesn't interest them.

Motivation and Progress

My experience with teaching vocabulary starts with letter recognition, word meaning, using the word in a sentence and letter sounds. The next strategy would be to help the student write a paragraph using correct sentence structure and correct vocabulary that helps the paragraph to flow smoothly and understandable.

I have tutored students ages 5-adult in reading, math,and language arts. I have my own materials that I would u [more]
