My teaching methods often depend upon how much guidance my students need to help them reach their learning goals. For most of my lessons, I employ the Exploratory Strategy, because it gives my students agency over their own learning.
I approach essay writing and reading comprehension with a patient and fun attitude. I believe developing an honest and trustworthy relationship with the client will assist their confidence and self-esteem which ultimately translates into their academics.
If you're interested in getting accepted to a Creative Writing Program (either at Concordia or elsewhere), I can help you develop your portfolio to ensure the strongest submission possible. We'll begin by looking over your work and using that to gauge your strengths and weaknesses, as well as discussing your goals as a writer.
As a person, I'm a kinesthetic learner so I learn by doing things. I understand people who also learn by doing things. I am able to adapt to your learning style and teach accordingly. I am looking for high school or university level students.
I believe that it is wonderful that everyone sees literature differently! So, I want to hone your skills of perception and articulation so you can share how you see literature, too! This will include questions about how you see the piece.
I tutor around the needs of the individual student. Each student has different needs, speeds and abilities that need to be individually addressed for them to prosper academically. I endeavour to help struggling high school students in classes such as English 20 or 30-1, Social Studies 20 or 30-1 or -2, biology 20 or 30, or chemistry and physics 20.
I use a combination of lecturing, a modified Socratic approach and group based problem solving activities and case studies for students to analyze and present.
My methodology depends on the needs of the student. For those looking for help with English as an additional language, I can be a conversation partner as well as a tutor in vocabulary and grammar. For those needing help in essay writing, I can provide exercises and tips on writing with style and clarity.
My teaching style is structured but warm and personalized. I'll get to know you as part of developing a teaching plan, and you'll get to know yourself, your strengths and how to improve, through working together with me. A typical class is 1-2 hours and covers a review of last week's work and any homework assigned, then a check in on how your studies are currently going.
I can help you if you are in high school or university, (though I will work with younger students if they are especially motivated). A typical class with me involves discussion, both oral and written. I will expect a lot of input from you. I will depend on your ideas to help me frame the material so that it addresses your interests.
My teaching methods vary from student to student. It is important to me to develop a relationship with the student, so that the lessons can be customized to accommodate their needs and what they plan to accomplish. I have experience in one on one tutoring as well as tutoring in a group setting.
I am capable of teaching general university preparation skills, or even essay writing in general. I can also teach specific subjects like English (my major) philosophy, politics and history. If I am given enough time and if I am familiar enough with the material, I can also write entire assignments. It would probably be best to contact me to discuss these details further.
I will cater each lesson to the student's needs. I pay close attention to their strengths and weaknesses and will use that as the basis of my classes. Though it is important to establish a friendly environment with the students, I will assure them that I am here to help and will do everything in my ability to help them improve.
When it comes to finding a tutor for your child you have many choices, so what makes me different from other private tutors. During the first tutoring session I learn how your child learns (visual, auditory, kinesthetics), what they are interested in, their strengths and weakness. I also, chat with you,(their parent) to find I want your goals are with having your child tutored.
I tailor feedback to your writing strengths and challenges. You send me your paper, expressing your concerns and areas of weakness. I give feedback in these areas and general feedback. My comments are thorough, specific, and specialized to your situation.
Research in the field of Rhetoric and Composition overwhelming indicates that the level of confidence a writer has in their own writing is the greatest indicator of success and the most reliable factor in determining the quality and merit of the writing at hand. I tutor writers with this research as my guiding philosophy and have found that it is remarkably accurate.
My teaching methodology is student-centered. I focus on inquiry-based learning where the "I dunno how" is re-generated into a strong, enthusiastic "Whaaat?! That's fascinating!" This approach encourages teachers and students to investigate why well-covered topics are relevant to our personal present.
Professional actor for 20 years, graduated from the IEP and text lover, I will help you with kindness so that you gain confidence in yourself (fluency) and become effective: capture an audience, convince it, interpret a speech, prepare an exam. A few sessions may be enough.

I am very attentive to detail! I will help you pick apart an essay so that your tone is refined and your grammar is excellent. I prepare weekly writing activities and provide you with engaging practice prompts to perfect your writing.
I believe that the best way to improve one's writing is to write as much as possible. Therefore, I am a strong proponent of frequent free writing. I evaluate writing in terms of higher versus lower order concerns (examples of higher order concerns include structure, content, and clarity, while lower order concerns have more to do with sentence-level issues like grammar and mechanics).
My teaching method is eclectic and focused on the material required for comprehension as well as the skilled delivery needed. I am a student-centered educator owing to the classic work of Carl Rogers--the client/student determines the specific needs to be met and methodology required by faithfully representing how much they know and how much they want to know.
The methods I use for teaching focus on ensuring total success for everyone involved. I look to see the differences in my students as a positive. We all learn differently and it is something we should all embrace! I can give my lessons to any one from Primary level, up to an adult to assist with rhetoric, speech writing and resume/CV building.
I am a PhD from PUC - SP, currently developing a thesis on Medieval History. The classes are intended for all those who want to learn the Latin language from the beginning. The content will always be presented in an expositive and dynamic way, using specific didactic materials, such as the renowned "Reading Latin".
I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I am certified in literacy, English, science, and gifted education for all grade levels. In addition to teaching, I also have two years experience as a curriculum developer focusing on AP Literature and AP Language. My lessons are hands-on, engaging, interactive, and purposeful.
I work with students who are preparing for standardized test, such as the ACT and SAT, or who need a tutor for Algebra 1 and 2. I believe in using more than one method to get to the answer, as long as it can be mathematically proven.
I give lessons to students from primary school to college level. My techniques are to provide suggestions and areas of revision for student's papers, instead of simply editing their work. I also provide context and support for literature, but will not read the student's chapters for them.
Associate in Arts from College of the Albemarle - Bachelor of Arts from Campbell University - Some post-graduate experience at UNCW I was a tutor at both COA and CU while I was a student. I was also awarded the "President's List" distinction while at COA and was published in the CU school newspaper and the CU poetry magazine whenever I submitted articles or poems, respectively.
My teaching method is to allow students to develop their ideas through academic exercise and dialogue. I want to assist middle and high school students in fully engaging with the material being taught in their English classes and help them develop as writers.
I plan to learn as much about teaching as you do about learning the English language. For those with a solid foundation of the language, I will focus on subtle grammar tips and specific issues with pronunciation or word choice. For those new to the language, I would have to start with basics. What is a noun? What is a verb? How to greet yourself and common phrases to say.

Perfect! My daughter is a motivated grade 10 pre-IB student who wanted me to find her a tutor to help her think more critically about literature, analyze texts and with her writing in general. We were impressed by Timothy's credentials and my daughter was...
