Poetry Tutoring

Early attempts to define poetry, such as Aristotle's Poetics, focused on the uses of speech in rhetoric, drama, song, and comedy. Later attempts concentrated on features such as repetition, verse form and rhyme. Looking for help? Select a tutor today. Poetry often uses particular forms and conventions to suggest alternative meanings in the words, or to evoke emotional or sensual responses. Devices such as assonance, alliteration, onomatopoeia, and rhythm are sometimes used to achieve musical or incantatory effects. Select a tutor now.

I have my Bachelor's Degree in Social Sciences (sociology, psychology and history) and have completed all pre-requisites for the CA Teaching Credential Program. I have passed all CA Multiple Subject Teaching Exams (CSET) and also have my certificate to teach english (TESOL). I have been awarded scholarships for my writing skills and have had a few works published. In Australia, I worked with many ESL students on their writing and reading comprehension skills. My passion is in social sciences and partnership education. I love working with young people from diverse backgrounds and helping them see their potential in any subject.

"There are obviously two educations. One should teach us how to make a living and the other how to live." – James Truslow Adams It’s my belief that when practicality and education are powered by drive and determination, the ultimate goal which is success, is achievable and that’s what it is to truly live. I always encourage students to work hard to achieve their goals and to take advantage of the precious moments of their education. I stress to them that money should not be a motivator, but instead it should be a bonus for finding success in one’s vocation. I believe, like Adams did, that the two educations compliment each other and provide balance in one’s life. My previous employment as a Tutor, Teaching Assistant, Assistant Faculty, and Academic Support Coordinator has prepared me for working with challenged learners. I have strong grammatical skills and an extensive background

I like to take an application-based approach. Whatever the end goal is, I try to have as many activities to help performance in that particular situation. My experience with Russian comes from 2 years of living in Ukraine and a Summer in Moscow as well as 4 years of academic study of the language and the culture. I was selected as the student director of the 2011 Summer Study Abroad program in Moscow. My piano experience comes from nearly 20 years of playing and studying piano, some of which was directed and some of which was self-taught. I have performed in many different settings and I have some composition experience. As far as writing goes, I just love writing and I've written for many different venues, including publication in a Russian-American college textbook.

I am what you might call a camp kid. I grew up spending summers in the mountains, camping and hiking and when I grew older, working. The foundation of my leadership experience was built in the forrest. For six summers I worked as an outdoor educator and adventure guide, leading groups of students through week long trips into the natural world. I believe in experience as the greatest teacher. Students are empowered when they learn from their experience and begin to flourish in themselves. At university, my enthusiasm for the outdoors lead me to the arts. I took a particular interest in poetry and short stories and immersed myself in literary life at UCSD. I was often asked to facilitate writing workshops and discussion groups, and in doing so I've found tutoring to come quite naturally to me.

I'm a firm believer in positive reinforcement. I have dealt with my fair share of teachers who use shame as a motivator, but that only stalls students. Teaching students WHY helps them understand HOW, and it works every time. I'm confident in this method's results. This is my first time tutoring professionally. However, it is not the first time I help others to learn. Even though I am only a college student (an English major, soon to be studying creative writing as a minor field), I have often volunteered at an elementary school in San Diego, where I worked with younger children. My tasks included administering tests, helping them with their work, and teaching proper study habits. Hopefully, I can take this little bit of experience and help any other students that need it. As an aspiring English professor, I know this will be a wonderful start to a career in teaching and of course, learn

Private tutoring with local students, professional tutoring with the San Dieguito Union High School district for two years. I helped middle through high school students work through subject areas they found difficult, as well as focusing extra attention on special needs students. Subject areas include Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus, Statistics, History, and English. Very communicative. I first build a basic rapport with the student, seeing what methods of teaching could work well for each individual student. Some students need slower, more exhaustive coverage of the material, while other students understand the main concepts and just have specific questions that I can help them with. With all students I tutor, I strive to create a friendly but professional relationship so that students can feel comfortable with any questions they may have.

In terms of personality, I am gentle-natured and very patient. Although I tend towards being soft-spoken, I am direct and can easily explain complex concepts clearly and precisely, so as to eliminate any confusion. When I first meet with clients, I like to get to know more about who they are and what their goals are so that I might tailor our sessions to their needs, both long-term and short-term. I am employed by the California State University system and I teach Spanish 101 at California State University San Marcos. As an undergraduate, I have had experience as a tutor of English for Spanish-speaking adults when I lived in Rosarito, Mexico, where I also flourished as an interpreter. I have also interned as an ESL tutor for elementary school children at Mission Meadows Elementary in Oceanside, CA.

As a teacher my biggest thrill is helping students reach their goals with clear understanding. Not all students learn the same and so good teachers must have many stategies for diversity in the classroom. With verbal and social skills that elicit trust, I have an ability to teach students that others cannot. I don't ever attempt to mold the student to fit some preconception but rather help the student discover their strengths and deficiencies in such a way as to make their study less daunting and less mystifying. In this way the student will become a more successful learner. After a career as a highly successful jewelry designer and manufacturer I sold my company and became an English teacher. I have always been interested in literature and journalism and while at university I participated in theater and was managing editor for the school newspaper. I began my teaching career at one of

I am warm-hearted and intuitive. I will listen carefully to what you say about your tutoring needs before I look at the work you are doing and offer my analysis of how you can make your language stronger, clearer and more persuasive. I have raised two children who have financed their college educations through scholarships. What I learned from them is that learning is best when YOU do it. I can guide your steps and give you feedback, but everything in between will come from you, and that is exciting! We will be a winning team, you and I! Working with hundreds of college students to improve their writing, from academic essays in all subjects to college applications puts a big smile on my face. When they report to me that they received 'A' grades or acceptance to the college of their choice, we both know they have sharpened the tools which will energize their futures. I have written e
