Enthusiastic Teacher with 10 Years of Classroom Experience

As I mentioned in the proofreading description, I have always sought to coach my students as writers. Expressing oneself well in writing is critical to almost any academic pursuit. In addition to helping students to write essays and research papers, I enjoy creative writing and blogging. After teaching full time for a decade, I now stay at home with my two young children. I recently moved from Pennsylvania to New York, and my teaching experience was primarily in the Philadelphia suburbs. I tutored my own students extensively throughout my career. I have also worked as a community coordinat [more]

Teacher with a Passion to Make Learning Fun

I believe writing is one of the foundations of learning. To be able to express what you know, you must be able to write. I have studied how to teach writing in both regular education as well as special education and teach it on a regular basis in my own classroom. I am currently in my third year of teaching in a local high school. I teach 9th grade World History and AP World History, United States History and have taught AP European History. I have a passion for teaching and strive to help students develop a love for learning. As a teacher I work to help students understand content in a way th [more]

Language Teacher

I have a bachelor of arts degree in English literature, and I have also successfully completed a year long post-graduate teacher training course (higher diploma in education)in which English was one of my teaching subjects. Languages have always been fascinating subjects for me and my fascination led me to choose two languages as my college majors - English Literature and Arabic grammar. I also studied French for six years at Middle and High School and also attended Ndebele classes (an African language) after completing college. My love and passion for languages compels me to engage my stude [more]

Between these two points lie using standard grammar and punctuation, choosing the right words, omitting what is unnecessary, and editing your work. Not only can I teach you what to do, but also how you can put the lessons into practice according to your own pace and temperament. Law is a literary... [more]

ELA Instructor with More Than Twenty Years Experience

The language arts consists of many components. When these are brought together, one communicates effectively and, sometimes, beautifully. Books are the models for this communication. I've always liked to read, but it wasn't until college that I learned to love to read. One of my professors, Sister Elizabeth Varley, taught me about the beauty of the written word. She taught me how to analyze the structure of literature and value word choice (vocabulary), and I can teach you-not only how to re... [more]
