If you bring me a text, I will really consider how it could be improved and give you clear explanations of how a reader would think reading your text as well as give you pointers on technical aspects like sentence structure.
My lessons are geared towards students who want to improve their overall writing in the long term and don't want to rely on a tutor. I like to start off my sessions with a self-assessment by the student on what they think they need to work on. Regardless of whether it's an essay or a report, I start off by reading their introduction, the first paragraph, and the conclusion.
Question answer and helping understand literary books.
I tutor with a hands on, creative style that aims to make writing, literature, and the English language more approachable and less intimidating. The structure of my tutoring is very flexible and I encourage students to bring any work or assignments they're struggling with to me so that we can work through problems together.
I personalize and tailor my lesson plan according to each student's learning style. Having said that, my lesson plans gear towards teaching my students the following skills. English: I focus on teaching my students how to analyze a book, passage, or short story. Understanding the deeper meaning behind the text. I also try to cultivate the skill of recognizing important quotes.
It is my preference to use essay outlines when starting a paper as they help you structure your ideas. I can help you with the formation of a helpful essay outline at the beginning of a project if this is a concern. I also believe that feedback is what helps essay writers improve and because of this I will provide you with detailed verbal and written feedback to refer to when revising.
I believe there is no one size fit all. Every single individual is different and therefore a different approach to each one is necessary. Making the "Learning process" fun and interesting is my main approach. I believe its a two way process between students and teachers , where both learn and grow. Its vital to find out the obstacles and work a way around it.
I believe that language skills can be improved majorly through conversations and reading. I was encouraged by my parents to read a lot as a child, and I noticed how much I was able to improve my writing skills and vocabulary. I will engage students in conversations and provide reading materials so that we can analyse and understand words and sentences that may be difficult to comprehend.
As an academic and a teaching scholar, I am committed to the intrinsic value of post-secondary education and scholarship. My teaching and research are inspired by the hermeneutic tradition and grounded in Boyer’s model of the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL).
I'm a professional writer and storyteller facilitator who is available to provide one-one support to students in the areas of: Reading Comprehension, Writing, Artistic Storytelling and overall language development. The classes are suited to be interactive so as to engage students and stimulate their learning.
I base my lessons on an active approach that enables you to learn how to approach literature in a way that makes it easy to understand and easier to apply. I believe in the importance of ensuring your work is individualized and above reproach, empowering you to write A-grade papers! We will work through sentence structure, syntax, and semantics as well as the nuances of a thesis.
My classes with structure and flexibility, depending upon the needs of the students. For high school or junior high school students, I follow Alberta Education's curriculum as much as possible. I like teacher / student(s) discussion. I assign and review homework.
I make it a point to make REAL learning happen by adopting scientifically proven methods of teaching. To be more specific, I carefully crafted lesson plans with varying weightage on comprehension, reading speed and efficiency, writing skills, etc., and drive the point home via reinforcement through practice.
I get to know the student. Understand his/her school curriculum and help as required, based on weekly quizzes, assignments, any type of homework. I prepare students for their final exams, giving them efficient tips on how to balance time in the exam.
I consider myself to be kind, caring, compassionate and helpful who likes to have fun. My teaching methods include using practicing questions and sheets and flashcards. My strengths are in grammar, poetry and essay writing. I try to be as accommodating and as helpful as possible.
I approach teaching my classes with a certain degree of flexibility. I like to structure my lessons in ways that will accommodate the specific needs of each student. For Academic English, I can help on improving skills such as analysis, writing, or structuring and editing papers. For ESL, I am trained to instruct on areas such as grammar, vocabulary and conversation.
My teaching methods are very much based on practical skills, and focused on challenging a writer (regardless of their level) to, whenever possible, take the perspective of the reader. I am comfortable following curriculum guides, but am not afraid to assign extension activities based on the student's individual needs and interests.
The most important part of writing is knowing how to read. After assessing how the student reads, we will discuss the best approaches to writing in the format required (creative, essay, academic, thesis, etc.). Grammar and spelling will be addressed as the paper is being written.
There is nothing better than conversation and practice to learn a language - First, let's talk to evaluate where you are and where you want to be, your goals and time frame. Together we establish the frequency and length of our classes and then we move forward and we start our classes as per your rhythm and your schedule. I work around my student's schedule. I teach to all age groups.
While tutoring students in English I like to focus more heavily on the areas that the student is struggling with, such as spelling, grammar, and parts of speech. However, I also like to address all areas of reading and writing in order to integrate the more difficult concepts with the rest of the work at hand.
I am results-oriented, energetic and have a passion for creating positive connections with people, having worked with different cultures from diverse backgrounds from all levels of society. I use the Communicative Teaching Method which allows students to learn in the context of their own experiences.
I've been teaching English literature for last twenty years and my methodology is to teach literature in a way that students are involved. I believe teaching is a fun but that fun should be created by a wonderful producer of a play.
I base my classes on the joy and creativity that reading and writing can bring to students, and the pride of expressing themselves in words. I have flexible teaching methods based on the needs of the student, from sounding out words, to explaining how grammatical rules make writing easier to understand.
I prefer discussion-based learning. I want to engage in conversations on what you are learning and delve further into the material to deepen your own understanding. If you present a novel or text, we will outline key points (characters, themes, settings, etc.) and work through why each is valuable to the whole work.
My teaching methods are simple. I explain things in the most simplest way to get points across, then elaborate once the concept is understood. I help with remembering Vocabulary and being creative.
Everyone can learn to write, they simply need someone patient and kind to help them understand how to express themselves best. My method includes determining and understanding the weaknesses and strengths of the student, then bringing the weaknesses up to the level their strengths, before proceeding towards achieving their greatness.
I like to approach teaching with an adaptable framework, because I have seen that no student learns best in the exact same way. I will cater to my student's specific needs and formulate a teaching methodology based on them.
My philosophy in teaching is very simple: Learn and have fun doing it! Many of my activities include singing, playing games, coloring, and using interactive PC games. I like to use lots of visual aids like flashcards and short videos. If it's fun and engaging I do it. If it's not fun and engaging, I don't do it.
I am a Commerce Graduate from Mumbai University,India. After working for 14 years I decided to take a break and make a change in my career. I have 2 years of experience in home tutions in India. I explain lessons and take periodic tests too. I am friendly person and a good communicator. I listen and understand problems of students.
I base my classes on getting the basics of reading down, from techniques such as visual cues, sounding out words, word identification and structured learning on the quickest way to improve reading skills. These classes are meant for children aged 4 - 12.
