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]

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]

Published author loves to read and write essays

I love to tutor and have done so for many years. My favorite subject is English and Creative Writing. I especially love helping my students write essays or prepare for interviews and/or college exams. Recently I was a reading teacher to fourth graders and took a special interest in each and every student. My goal was to help them improve their reading and spelling skills to prepare them for the next grade, as they were falling behind. Happily, they all successfully completed the program and...

Experienced English and German Tutor (native speaker)

I am an English learner. Almost every word I know I learned from a book or from a teacher. After many years and multiple degrees I still learn new words, words like cogent, dichotomy, and obfuscate. People use these words in newspaper columns and on TV talk shows. I will hear new words, I will look them up, and I will continue to learn new words. It never ends, but it helps me to grow. Education is my passion. "Education", from the Latin, means "to lead out of." We need to open ourselves up to the world around us. There is so much going on. New discoveries in science open up the universe an [more]

Psychologically-Oriented--ADHD and Learning Disabilities

I offer a very high-level of tutoring that is far more comprehensive than what most tutors offer. In addition to my English degree from U.C. Berkeley, I am also close to completing my master's degree in Psychology from Santa Clara University. Most tutors only address, what I call "content"--meaning the content in the textbook or the content the teacher covers in the classroom. What is severely lacking in the approach of most tutors and tutoring companies is a focus on the internal "process... [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]
