I am a retired UBC professor of History, Chinese Studies and Comparative Religion with 31 years of teaching and tutoring experience, looking for a part-time job tutoring English in my Kerrisdale apartment or nearby. Native speaker of English; also speak fluent Mandarin Chinese and some Spanish. Ph.D, University of Chicago. Can adjust to student needs.
I can give guidance through a big project like your honours project, masters or PhD proposals, papers, and thesis. Don't be ashamed of your drafts, we can work from an outline through several drafts. The same goes for data analysis. We can go from simple models to more complex dissections your data. I am an open-minded teacher and flexible in the curriculum you need.
I have been teaching ESL to adult and young adult learners with varying levels of knowledge and have had to adjust my teaching to fit a variety of different learning environments and styles. I have taught various group and private academic English courses including IELTS, TOEFL, essay writing, and English communication.
I work to make sure my students have a thorough understanding of the material through a variety of different learning techniques: short written responses; question and answer sessions; creating new examples to explore difficult concepts. It is important to me to understand the different obstacles to understanding faced by different students and to work through those together.
I try meet my students exactly where they are in terms of their knowledge and skills, and I help them grow beyond their level. I'm very patient, non-judgmental, and well-spoken. I have taught in the past and have been told that I am very easy to understand and also fun to learn from.
My teaching methodology is individualized according to the student's needs. I am always patient, kind and positive in my interactions with students. I give lessons in how to write essays and edit essays that students have already written. I can also guide students in the process of writing the first draft of their paper.
My main goal as a tutor is to help students stay on topic with their writing and to prepare them for post-secondary expectations. However, writing styles vary per individual and I want to help students develop their own style. Classes will consist of learning essay structure, creative writing, reading comprehension and thesis development.
The first meeting is partly diagnostic. I request students to bring a writing sample (anything they wish to work on!) and we discuss the students' concerns. After reading the sample, I determine which areas the student is struggling the most with.
My methodology ranges from attentive tutoring on writing strategies and client needs to expedient proofreading. I believe that I can provide perspective on institutional and discipline oriented writing advice, grammatical accuracy and clear explanations, while also attending to the knowledge needs of students.
My emphasis has always been on communicating perfectly, making learners feel satisfied with what they are learning. Patience and humane attitude towards learners making them at home to create an interactive environment, need-most for learning.
Constructivist, Vygotskian, contemporary methodologist. I work with diverse and intergenerational learners, writers, students, learners of all types. I am interested in promoting and equitable agenda, the Socratic method, classical education, and literature of all kinds. I also have experience in Indigeneity and critically endangered languages (Kanien'keha), the Iroquoian languages.
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 provide an individualized approach to students who need help with their homework, editing papers, reading, writing or forming strong thesis statements. I break my lessons into tangible chunks and encourage students to ask questions as we take time together to understand lessons.
I tailor my teaching to each student, and cover methodology as well as writing. A typical student has an idea about their dissertation, thesis or paper, and I assist in critical review first. We then proceed to research and outline, then to editing as needed. This professor is mostly available for graduate students in social sciences (PoliSci, Sociology, Education, Communication...
The method I use in teaching is determined very largely by certain givens such as the learning styles of my students and their needs and wants. I do not impose in methodology under whatever conditions. Of course there is a technique which I prefer over others: "the flipped classroom". I really like for my students to take the lead and discover new things on their own.
I can help you to clearly identify and define a research problem,and identify and outline contextual issues related to that problem. I will also assist you to locate your research problem within a suitable research paradigm with ontological and epistemological assumptions and methodological choice.
My teaching methods would include flexibility in order to personalise it to every student I'd tutor, based on their strengths and weaknesses in the subject. I would ask them what they are struggling with and focus on strengthening those points, and then go over some basic things that should be reviewed.
I prefer to work closely, one-on-one, with each student. If you have a text you are working on (a class assignment, an important letter, a thesis or dissertation, a book manuscript...) we can work on that - you can send me material and I can discuss with you how to improve what you have written.
I believe it is important to tailor every lesson to the individualized needs of every student. While learning is a collaborative project, my ultimate goal is to inspire curiosity. My classes are meant for students looking to increase their skills, develop a deeper understanding of English, sharpen their academic writing and much more.
I structure my teaching methods to match my students' learning style and academic needs. I will plan lessons around students' specific time restraints as well as ability to concentrate. Lessons will cater to the student's specific needs and struggles.
My goal as a teacher is to ensure a learning environment that is intellectually stimulating, socially enjoyable and respectful of the students’ diversity. I am especially invested in helping students find their own voice as writers and adjust it to the requirements of college and university-level writing, without losing their personality and uniqueness.
I put a lot of importance on respecting the learner’s pace. I want to get to know you and the methods that work best for you and go from there.
I approach a subject based on the syllabus. I can teach a range of classes for students from Grades 1 to 9 and also many Law school subjects. I am also available to edit and help students with any written assignments.
I am very passionate and excited to share my knowledge and to get students equally excited about the lesson being taught. I am committed to my purpose in life - to teach! I use social media, real life examples and stories as well as discussions and in-class collaboration among other teaching techniques. But my most important teaching tool is my ultra-preparation for ALL of my classes.
I can work remotely or in-person. Frequent correspondence is best, and I make sure to walk you through each step and reasoning behind each recommendation for your writing. I can offer the most help for high-school and early undergraduate courses that are both writing and mathematically-oriented.
I adapt my methodology to whatever suits my student. Students are not the same and should not be treated as such by their tutor. I can teach all levels from high school to post graduate.
We go over assigned readings once or twice per week, for two hours. During this time we discuss the readings, practice writing, and gain the ability to think critically about the subject matter. At the end of the tutoring sessions the student should be able to read and write upon the subject matter with relative ease.
The session is two hours long, once or twice a week. Readings are done by the student prior to meeting. We go over the meaning of the readings and prepare the outline of an essay, or cover what the student needs to know for an exam.
I have developed the skills through my education and work experience of tutoring to work successfully with students of various age groups in the Arts and Social Science. I am able to adapt my lessons to the needs of various learning styles, fostering the best experience for the student.
I approach english language in the easiest possible way and try to keep my classes fun, informative and relevant. I go at the students pace and make sure that they get the most out of my classes. I engage in a Facilitator/activity style o teaching that promotes self-learning and help students develop critical thinking skills and retain knowledge that leads to self-actualization.
