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.
My sessions are tailored to my clients' individual needs. Examples: Tracking School Curriculum: Helps maximize student's academic performance. Typical weekly sessions review past week's school material and homework assignments including exercises to help improve comprehension.
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'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.
Interactive student-centered method. Flexible, based on individual student needs.
Les cours sont organisés soit en fonction du niveau de l'étudiant, soit en fonction de ses requêtes, si le besoin est précis et ponctuel. La durée du cours est de 1h minimum. Les cours sont ouverts aux élèves de l'école secondaire et aux étudiants à l'université.
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 am interested in tutoring English and writing at the high school level. Through my success as a student and my experience with peer editing, I believe the best way to teach is through conversation and engagement. Rather than simply correcting work, I strive to help students understand their mistakes so they can learn from them.
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.
My teaching methods are based on your needs. If you are struggling in a particular area of English, I will find the materials necessary to help you advance and thrive in that area. I will provide lessons and worksheets to help you practice what was taught to you.
I briefly outline my lessons and course outcomes. I lecture on specific topics encouraging the students to learn by research. In addition to set lessons, I bring in other relevant texts to provide the student with the full context of what he/she is reading.
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 approach my classes with flexibility and by allowing the student to become comfortable. I start by understanding the student's learning style (visual, audible, kinesthetic, etc). Then, I perform some diagnostic tests to familiarize with the student's learning level. I will help the students with their homework and test prep; ensuring that they are comfortable with the content taught in class.
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.
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.
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.
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 teaching methodology centres on providing individualized, student-focused instruction. I achieve this by encouraging the development of critical thinking skills. The sessions are intended for high school and post-secondary students.
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 am a professor with a long and succesful career in teaching, so I have developed an acute sense in creating the methodology that can be adjusted to every case, level or conditions of the learner. You will see results in the few weeks. Being fluent in three languages, i have experience on how to learn a new language I am good in finding the better way to transmite the Spanish language.
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.
