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]

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]

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. My name is Illona, I am a retired special education teacher of students with Autism. I have taught other deficits of special education (LD, BD, Cognitive Delayed, and TMH). I have tutored students ages 5-adult in reading, math,and language arts. I have my own materials that I would u [more]

Excited to help with Biology, Psychology, Neuroscience, & English

Vocabulary and Spelling have always been enjoyable for me. One quantitative demonstration of this was being in the 90th percentile for the Verbal Reasoning section of the GRE, which was heavily focused on vocabulary words. I'd be happy to play fun games to help utilize and remember a plethora of vocabulary words. Hi, my name is Jason and I'm excited to help you learn! As someone who is always curious and learning new things, I think an important aspect of learning is asking questions, including asking "Why?" I think it is particularly important to see the connections between different ideas an [more]
