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.
My teaching method is interactive and experimental. As soon as I hand hold the students to a comfort level around me, I start working on their confidence to perform the given tasks independently. I am compassionate yet firm in an effort to build an air of friendliness. I would rather be a facilitator rather than an instructor.
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.
In the first meeting I will learn about your learning style and how to best communicate with you. Some students prefer visuals, others prefer step by step systems created for them in this case research and thought organization. Others like templates to follow and others just prefer to understand how to do it now and how to approach similar problems in the future.
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 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).
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.
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.
Being a positive and patient tutor, my goals is to support my students by helping them become confident learners. I have experience assisting students from kindergarten to grade 6 in English and Math.
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 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.
I base my tutoring sessions on the needs of the specific student. I like to have a discussion with both the parents and the child in order to gain more insight on those specific academic needs. I like to build a positive and fun relationship with my students based on mutual respect and a positive attitude toward learning.
My teaching philosophy hinges on the individual student's needs. Every youth has their own unique way of learning. It's not about how smart they are, but how they are smart. With that in mind I focus on skill building, and teaching ways of thinking and questioning. From there I scaffold knowledge and understanding, building on previous lessons.
As someone who strives to be as effective of a teacher as I can be in the future, I have developed a style of teaching that takes into consideration the strengths and weaknesses of the students I am am working with. I ensure that any student I work with is dealt with fairly and companionably, and structure all my lessons in a way that will ensure I can get the best out of anyone I am working with.
I tailor learning to meet individual student's needs. First I gather as much information about a student as possible, using records, testing, interviews, portfolio statements, parent information and behaviour/work habits checklists and anecdotals.
I believe I can really help you, with my experience, my University English Degree and my Principal Certification, by working one on one or in small groups, I can foster creative, risk taking curriculum advancement opportunities. Through dedication, humour, repetition and hard work, I can help any student improve their written and spoken English language.
I approach the subject with flexibility and a lose mind because of all the creative aspects of English courses. Literate interpretations are based upon how the reader understands the premises of what is being taught.
My teaching methodology is always specific to whomever I'm teaching.
I appreciate that every student learns differently, and have a flexible & open-minded approach to teaching. I love open discussion & collaboration, and believe that the best way to teach is to truly connect with the student. I'm happy to teach all ages & grades.
I believe students learn best through hands-on doing. Building confidence through meaningful practice – with descriptive feedback – allows students to build on their foundational skills to succeed. I provide multiple ways for students to learn and practice their skills.
I like to teach with an open mind and listening to the needs and ideas of my students. I believe that there is no wrong or right answer, all paths should be explored. The classes are meant for Grades 8-12 and Undergraduate students.
By using the students current educational materials, I can determine how well they understand it by having them read their current assignments and assisting them with Them. With them reading out loud the material I can assist them in developing techniques in which they can gain comprehension improve reading speed which translates into being an able writer.
I approach learning dynamically based on the needs of my classroom. I love incorporating student interests into my lessons and using student perspectives on the world to scaffold learning across all subjects. My experience in theatre gives me a unique, engaging, and friendly outlook to teaching.
I believe that learning should be fun and never intimidating, that is why I approach tutoring with a positive and encouraging attitude. I will utilize flash cards, work books, and creative play to ensure that the learning process is engaging and productive.
- I see what the student wants in our lessons - if they have specific needs for the lesson - I assess strengths and weaknesses and work with them to better the lesson - I try to keep things compelling and entertaining - a modern approach to things - experience with children with ADHD and autism
Each class will be divided into two parts: Theory: Develop fundamental skills in storytelling, structure, character, format, and genre. Students will also learn the best way to outline and flesh out their ideas before heading into writing their first draft. Basically, I will guide you through every step in bringing your story to life.
