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.

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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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 strategy are determined mainly on the subject matter to be taught. I aim to see that every student learns and understands the subject. I have been taking tutions to middle school students with 2 batches of 7 students each. I am dedicated and proactive with a strong commitment in high quality educational standards that develop the potential in every child.
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.
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 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 approach any teaching environment with flexibility and generally have a very relaxed classroom atmosphere. Having good rapport with my students is one of the most important things when I consider the approach needed to teach a particular topic, as each person has a unique personality and different ways of understanding language.
I plan to conduct tutoring sessions in this manner: 1. Introduction to your strengths and weaknesses as a writer. During this stage, I will ask you some questions regarding what you feel you need to focus on. If you want help with something specific (essay, resume, grammar, how to summarize), I will be glad to assess how to proceed with concerns to your desired focus.
My teaching methods are flexible. To assess the kind of assistance a student needs, I encourage the submission of a draft writing. From there, we can set up an approach that works ( such as comments on the document, video conference or in-person meeting if in Edmonton). My tutoring services are intended for University students who would like to improve their writing.
I focus on true understanding over rigid mechanics, and my goal is to make you grasp the purpose of your work. We will approach each project as a problem to be solved. Working from goal to reality, I hope to make education meaningful and USEFUL.
My teaching methods are based on patience, and getting to know each individual because everyone learns differently. I will hone in on each person's strengths and weaknesses, as well as the way they operate personality wise and be sure I offer them an individualized learning plan.
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.
