Experienced teacher supports student success in skill building

I have been tutoring and teaching students in vocabulary study for many years. I take a multifaceted approach. Root study helps students cluster words and translate unfamiliar words from increasingly familiar components. Sentence completion exercises require students to consider definition and connotation within a framework. Figuring out words in context is learning vocabulary in the most natural way. Synonyms, antonyms and analogy have a game component that can keep interest while negotiating unfamiliar words. There is still advantage to drill, despite its monotony. [more]

Learning should be fun! (2015 Top Tutor!)

I am a voracious reader and scored in the 99th percentile on the SAT Verbal as well as the SAT II English test. In January, Wyzant named its "Top 250 Tutors in 2015" and I am very proud to be on that list! It was such an honor to be recognized! The following vignette tells you almost everything you need to know about me and my methods and my success rate - While helping a student with calculus, she spontaneously exclaimed, "This is the most fun I've had in math all year!" This was coming from an average student whose goal was "don't fail math." But after working with her for a few months, she [more]

Harvard Grad, SAT, College App Essays, Elementary (K-8) Teacher

Precision in written and spoken English is essential to every mode of communication. Additionally, having a large rich vocabulary can keep your writing and speaking fresh and dynamic. It is never too late to build a rich vocabulary. At the elementary level, building a rich vocabulary starts with reading challenging texts and books and looking up new words in the dictionary. I also like to use some vocabulary-building video resources that make the acquisition of new vocab fun for young learners. At the high school, college, and professional levels, having a rich vocabulary is essential for m [more]
