Study Skills

I help my Literacy, English and ESL students with basic study skills and knowing how to balance homework and all. I find it best to try to teach a little organizational skills first then move on to prioritize things as far as importance and giving them a calendar and a timer to use is essential. I find it works best to do these things first then move on to specifics. I guide them through the journey till they understand and can manage then check in with them periodically.

I am an ESL teacher and have had to take this test to work at an Adult Ed school, so I have first hand experience. I understand how to portion out the time to get passing results. I know what the test takers are looking for in the essay and how to tactically approach the math and reading sections to get the highest scores.

I understand the places where people of different cultures may have potential articulation problems. I can help them due to my 10+ experience in working with international students. I possess an MA in TESOL and a TESL certifcate. I also have a background in literacy which helps a great deal in the basic fundamentals of phonics.
