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.
A teacher of writing and literacy needs to know each student's competencies. I use the Socratic approach, encouraging both answers and questions. The student's age, literacy level, education, occupation and goals determine the beginning. Depending on class size and duration, concepts involving structure, theme, planning, plot, character development, designing your essay.
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.
I offer a variety of services, tailoring my methodology to the needs of the pupil. In addition to my experiences as a student of English, under many different systems of educations, I also have experience of the creative side, having been employed as a writer and an actor. As a result, I am skilled at navigating the connection between a piece of text and its audience.
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 approach my teaching methodology purely based on the Individual learning style of each student. Engagement with the students interests, creating a passion for the subject, and encouraging an interactive, hands on approach to learning have always benefited my students.
I believe that students need to be excited by their learning. If there is something that they are not enjoying I believe that there is always a way to make learning exciting. Learning and school should be fun, exciting and should meet the student's needs.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 can identify your weak areas and work patiently to improve your confidence and understanding of course materials. Based on experience, everyone has their own preconceived method of learning I can help improve your understanding and meet your main objectives .
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 have wanted to be a teacher from the moment that I entered junior kindergarten at 3 ½ years old; the well-used chalkboard hanging on the wall of my childhood bedroom will attest to that. From the moment I was old enough to, I volunteered myself for as many opportunities to work with children as I could.
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.
Each person is different - they learn at a different speed and in a different way. I offer 1-1 private sessions with tailor made materials and activities to suit that particular person.
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.
I believe that effective education is based in best practices, driven by effective assessment, and focused on the needs of the learner.
My methodology is goal-oriented and focused on the specific needs and requirements of the student. I do not believe in rigid or systematic approaches to learning, but prefer to develop a curriculum and course of action that provides interest and practical application to the learner. I want to work with you to formulate and execute a lesson plan that will be of maximum benefit.
I have taught students from diverse backgrounds and skill levels in small groups, individually, and in larger classrooms. I use appropriate resources to create a customized learning environment. Using a student-centred approach to education, I personalize learning and tailor lessons and instructional style to each student’s needs.
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 keep a strength based and relational approach to young learners (ages 5-13). I find patience and creative, outside-the-box thinking to be my method.
Once I understand where you are in your education, I set up an effective plan to help you achieve your goals; whether it be to complete your homework, pass your tests, improve your reading and writing, or get your diploma.
I base my teaching on students' needs and goals. I believe adult learners should guide their own learning and as a teacher, I develop lessons which address the gaps I perceive in writing, speaking and reading skills. If tutoring is required for a specific English course, lessons would be built around the expectations for that course. I work with students on assignments to ensure success.
I base my classes based on the students needs. Some students need more instruction and help understanding the material, and I will find ways to help them do so. Other students need more of a sounding board to discuss things to work out a problem. I also use studying tools like flash cards, study guides and use tips and tricks that have worked for me in the past.
