My comments on tutoring SAT - Verbal: Let's work together to increase your chances!

I assess the student's level of mastery by listening to parents, communicating with the student (in whatever appropriate way needed) and then doing some basic testing. Once the student is assessed I design a learning environment and activities that coincide with the student's specific strengths, while adding some elements of challenge. I tend to work in a very focused way for 10-15 minutes, and then add in tactile activities (like Bannana Grams for example) for 10 minutes or so, in order to maintain the student's attention. Children and youth who are struggling to read and write get patient assistance to learn the words correctly. My work will improve writing techniques (including essays and basic writing skills), reading comprehension, vocabulary development, and literary creativity. For younger children I work with acquiring reading skills, word recognition, pattern recognition, spell ... read more

And finally, I have taught private piano lessons and music reading. I present concepts in a variety of ways, such as: "hands on," visually, problem-solving, and inquiry-based.

I have been in education for 16 years. I specialize in working with students with ADD/ADHD, specific learning disabilities as well as students who underachieve. I have a Master's Degree in Special Education and have successfully worked with students all over the Bay Area to help them realize their full potential. Not all students are successful and the trick is to identify the reasons behind the lack of success. The issues that students have with school are diverse; procrastination, lack of organization, failure to plan, lack of awareness, ineffective habits, learning disabilities, and differences are all possible explanations for school failure. I work with students one on one to help them pinpoint where things break down for them and then work with them to find strategies to help them manage the skills and material they are asked to learn and master. I am there to guide, not just

"A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary" I think that this quote about teaching, in a way, reflects my idea on what teaching is all about. One can be a good teacher, whose characteristics encompass good knowledge of the subject matter, understanding the needs of your students, and the ability to apply this knowledge to students' needs. However, an effective teacher does not only pass knowledge on to her students, but makes herself gradually unnecessary: her learners become independent learners as they progress through a course. As a teacher, I always try to be effective in this sense - I foster independence in my students. At the same time, I strive for excellence which will eventually make me a better teacher. This endeavor caused me to reflect on how an excellent teacher is different from a good teacher. The conclusion I have come to is that a gap between a g

I have years of experience teaching and tutoring English as a second language, both in the U.S. and overseas. My students have included high school students, community college students, university and postgraduate students, and working professionals of all ages. I have taught speakers of Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Arabic, Farsi and Turkish. I am also an experienced tutor in law, having taught both law and paralegal students in substantive law, legal writing, test taking skills, and LSAT preparation. I also work with business students who are taking business law and business ethics classes. I adapt my style to your individual needs. Some students prefer to use a textbook, but with others I will provide appropriate study materials. I like to get to know my students so that we can focus only exactly what you need to improve as quickly as possible.

I love working with students. One on one is even better than teaching groups of thirty in my book. I also worked ten years as a Physical Chemist where I had to know Math and Physics as much as Chemistry. I have taught Math, Physics, Biology in addition to Chemistry, and tutored in all these areas. I also graded essays for the state of Georgia and so I could sharpen any students essay skills. I have lived in Africa and so am ready to work with any culture. I believe that each student should learn to be in charge of their own education. My goal is to help them achieve that goal. I am not quick to jump in with the answer but can wait patiently for them to work through the problem. Since I learned by a very different method than my teachers tried to teach, I look for a students learning style. If he is not getting the concept, I'll try another or even invent one on the spot.

As a classroom instructor, I am conscious that one needs to constantly engage with and interact with the class. I always taught in a tutorial style, where after I've introduced the material the students must solve a puzzle or problem based on it. I believe that to engage students there must be a discovery component to the class. In a tutoring role, one can take the students strengths and build on those. Often a student has lost all confidence (and hope!) and doesn't realize how much he or she knows. By patiently building from simple problems this confidence can be restored. As a graduate student at UC Berkeley, I was a TA for twelve semesters in a range of physics classes. In 2002 I won the UC Berkeley Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor award. After graduating I was a lecturer for 2 years at 50% time. This was at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. There I developed

Initially depending on the subject I utilize my own constructed 'initiation exam' where I'm able to test various topics of either subject and find the student's weakeness. Once taken I construct my own style of tutoring using various books, personal references, and previous assignments I've done throughout my educational career to train the students to become more knowledgeable on the subjects required. I'm not very apt in using one book, and going through it but I feel the more prepared the teacher is for the session, the more the student will learn. I am offering English Tutoring Sessions and recently graduated from the University of California San Diego. I majored in Biochemistry and have tutored English for over 5 years. I have received an A in every English course since elementary school and was in GATE since I was 7 years old. I took English/AP honors throughout High School and rec

I know of few things that compare to the moment a concept or idea clicks in a student's head. Regardless if it registers with a knowing nod or is the result of a difficult grinding process, the feeling for me is the same. I firmly believe that no two children think in exactly the same way, and so often no two children learn in exactly the same way. Differences in persepective, experience, environment, etc. mean paths to discovery may differ for each child. My job as an educator is to find that path through patience, compassion and creativity, all while creating an enjoyable learning environment. Since high school I have always been in a postion as a mentor and tutor. One of my first experiences was as a camp counselor for inner-city youth. Since then my affinity for teaching has grown while serving as a Bible study teacher and private tutor, to the position I now have as Assistant Direct
