Reading, K-Prep. Specializing: Dyslexia, Learning Disabilities

In order to understand information and express oneself a command of the English vocabulary is imperative. I teach my students techniques to learn new vocabulary from their academic materials, as well as, challenge them to use new words while writing. Throughout the years, I have found my methods help students increase the complexity of their writing. I hold a master?s degree in teaching, been a certified teacher and have enjoyed working with students for over 30 years. I adore elementary students because they get so excited when they finally understand something they have been struggling over [more]

All Elementary/Middle School - ADD/ADHD - ABA Therapist

Vocabulary building is often overlooked as a language art skill. It is one thing to review and learn to spell all the words on a weekly list, but the most important step, that of incorporating the words into one's personal vocabulary, is often not emphasized enough. I offer my students incentives for using their new vocabulary words in their daily speech and writing. Proper use of a dictionary is another important tool for building vocabulary which I make sure my clients understand well. I love working with elementary and middle school age kids and have been a private tutor for the last eight [more]

Sciences, Test Prep, English & Math, Literature, and Biology

My passion for teaching was founded by my own experience as a student. Throughout my academic career, the challenges I encountered refined my own approach to understanding subjects, and the ensuing success after overcoming such obstacles brought me further love for learning and those subjects. I want to transmit that feeling of accomplishment to students as they master their own subjects, and hopefully foster a passion for further learning and success in any of their other endeavors. As a to... [more]

Retired Aerospace Engineer. Professional Tutor for Math and English.

As a Kumon Instructor for 11 years, I taught every aspect of English, from phonics, phonetics, and phonemic learning to college level argument and debate. During that time, I have taught hundreds of students, from children and teens to young adults, to understand that English is our primary form of communication. More importantly, I have taught that all of the concepts are related so closely to everyday life that anyone can learn to understand and use them. I was the principal instructor for a major test preparation company for a number of years, and I am certified to teach test prep for the P [more]

English Language and Literature Tutor

Throughout my life, I have improved my own vocabulary through copious reading and using words that I learn. My studies of English literature as well as my extensive reading of Charles Dickens's novels during my high school years assisted me in this regard. My English teaching over five years has included regular vocabulary building exercises, spelling tests, and the explanation of the meanings of difficult words, as well as lessons on how to use a dictionary. I have five years' experience of teaching English language and literature, and two years' experience of teaching Biblical Studies, as w [more]
