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.

Would you like to improve your writing skills and get top marks on your essays and assignments? If so, you have come to the right place! I work with high school and junior undergraduate students to improve comprehension, knowledge retention, and...
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.
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).
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.
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.
I am trying to use all kinds of media (videos, music songs, movies, games) in order to make teaching as entertaining as possible, but sometimes the use of "classical" teaching methods is inevitable:) Especially skilled to teach Business English!
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.
There is nothing better than conversation and reading to learn a language - Let's sit, let's talk, let's learn the basics first than move on as per your rhythm, your schedule ! I work around my student's schedule and I teach to all age groups.
I use a scaffolding method to help students learn how to learn and develop better writing skills from lesson to lesson. Each class will start with some theory based on what we are trying to do, then have most of the time spent actually writing or revising so the student can learn.
Considering need of very student is different from one another I personally give attention to each student separately. I sit and listen to all possible problems and worries encountered so far, followed by preparing an organized time table with step by step process on how to rectifying the problems out. A customized syllabus is prepared and taught.
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.
The teaching method I assume is one that is adaptable. I realize that not every child and student are the same and that is why each teaching approach should be tailored to the child. As a tutor, I would expect materials to be ready as well as the majority of homework done for the session other than the questions or assignments that they had difficulty on or would like me to edit.
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 am comfortable instructing individually or in a group setting. I can adapt to different age groups and learning objectives. A typical class would involve a review with the student on the area of focus or difficulty and historical work. This should lead to a teaching plan with specific goals and objectives mutually agreed to by the student and/or relevant supervisor (i.e. parent).
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 encourage my students to generate their own ideas and work based off of those. I provide gentle guidance and insight, while helping mature their thought process. I focus first on the ideas, and then on the actual writing process.
Under my tutelage, I have seen students go from a 'D' grade in a Humanities subject to an 'A' . After years of marking papers as a Course Director and as a Teaching Assistant, I know exactly what professors are looking for when marking papers and exams.
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 tailor my lessons to what each individual client needs, so at the first meeting, we will discuss what you want to improve in your writing. We will work on your desired writing projects together, learning about grammar, organization, research, or rhetoric along the way. Sometimes we will read a little literature for examples and inspiration as well.
The technique that i typically use when it comes to teaching is trying to make the lesson as simple and easy and playful to understand in order to make sure the student can grasp as well as enjoy learning through the process. I also tend to use examples as i feel they help clarify a lot of confusions and tend to avoid jargons as much as possible unless it is a requisite.
I base my classes on the needs of my students. Every student is different, and I always take the time to learn about my students' goals and work with them to reach their goals. I care about the success of my students and make myself available to help as much as possible.
I am enthusiastic in what I do and I like using visual aids. I am very flexible in what I do and am able to be flexible in helping you in the way you learn best in for the best success.
I offer fun memory tricks to help students succeed, especially with regards to essay formatting. A typical class would include a short writing activity, followed by proofreading the piece together, in order for the student to reach conclusions about their work independently. This ensures that the student truly understands the subject material.
My teaching methods are to understand what the student is not understanding and why. By figuring out what they are struggling with helps my self as a teacher, become more accommodating. I would start a tutoring session by making the student explain what task is at hand to ensure they know what they need to do/work on.
For essay writing and test prep in literature and history exams, I look at two things: the topics that you usually will write about, and how you write it.
