ACT Math

The majority of the math in the ACT covers Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry and a little bit of Trig. I was trained in the Math portion of the ACT at a previous tutoring center as well as have been a private tutor for two students who wanted to have summer help in passing Algebra the following year.

ACT Reading

I have extensive experience in teaching English Literature and Composition due to my background in teaching all grade levels in Reading and Writing for the past 10 years. I hold a Bachelors Degree in English as well as supplemental authorization to teach English Literature and Writing Composition to 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students. I recently obtained a second bachelors degree in Speech Pathology in which I studied grammar for semantics (vocabulary meaning) and syntax (sentence structure). Prior to my working with Wyzant, I was employed with a tutoring center that gave me extensive training in the verbal portion of the ACT as well as the testing requirements in how to get a high score. I hope to help you to get as high a score as possible!

Elementary (K-6th)

Hello to all elementary students Kindergarten through 6th grade and their parents. My name is Hilary Ghorbanzadeh. I have wide rang of tutoring and teaching experience in the elementary grades. I was a second grade teacher at Rio Del Norte School for the 2009-2010 in Oxnard and taught third grade at the same school the year before. My first position was an elementary intervention teacher specializing in Reading and Language Arts. I focused on grades 1st through 5th grade and concentrated on phonics, fluency and comprehension review. After two years of employment in Long Beach I relocated to Ventura County and worked as a 6th grade English teacher in the Moorpark for one year. I taught students how to critically view a work of literature in several different ways. I was then hired by Rio School District as a Language Arts Support Teacher for all grade levels.

Throughout these five years I have tutored privately for numerous clients ranging in age from Kindergarten to High School in the Ventura County area. Many of my students have been with me for more that 2 years which shows a measure of trust and confidence in my abilities. I tutor all subjects but my primary focus is reading and math. I am very dedicated to focusing on the student's strengths as well as areas of improvement. I used the student's strengths and interests to help them succeed in subjects they need work on.

I have used many different types of technology in my classrooms including an LED projector, a digital camera, a Promethean Smart Board and both Apple and PC computers. I received my Bachelors of Arts in English from the University of California at Santa Barbara. I then attended Cal State Long Beach where I completed my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential with a CLAD certificate. My first position was an elementary intervention teacher specializing in Reading and Language Arts. I focused on grades 1st through 5th grade and concentrated on phonics, fluency and comprehension review.

Grammar

I have an extensive amount of experience in grammar for younger children as well as older students in the upper grade levels. I have taught for the last 10 years at various grade levels with a concentration in the fundamentals of English. I am able to use several different types of methods in order to help students reach their optimal level of grammar in writing emphasizing syntax within the sentence.

Phonics

Hello to prospective students and their families. I have a great deal of experience in tutoring students in the primary grades in the beginning letter sounds and their many uses. I use different techniques to teach students based on how they learn, either visually, hands-on, or for more of an auditory learner. I bring all my own materials and work with the student for and intensive one hour session or more if the parent wishes it. At the end of the lesson leave the student with simple independent tasks to do by themselves to practice until I return. I have tutored children as young as kindergarten and as old as 5th grade. All students learn at different rates and in different ways. I use that to my advantage so I can make sure the student have the greatest amount of success. You will see improvement in the student's reading in a very short time.

Praxis

I have taken the Praxis 1 and Praxis 2 for Reading, Writing and Mathematics as well as Middle School English and received passing scores on all tests. The required score for Instructional Assessment, Middle School English and Content Knowledge was 168, 163 and 150 and my scores 184, 186 and 187. The required passing score for the Pre-professional skills test was 521 and my score was 542.

Prealgebra

I am certified in multiple subjects up to eighth grade in both the public and private school setting. I have tutored numerous students privately in Pre-Algebra and Algebra with a high success rate. I bring along my own materials including books that make Math easy for kids to understand.

Proofreading

I have a great deal of experience in editing a composition for content as well as conventions. A paper should have a distinct voice and stance on the topic being addressed as well as cohesive structure throughout. These requirements can be difficult for even the most seasoned writer to include in a paper. I have a degree in English as well as a state teaching credential in Literature and Composition. I have taught the fundamentals of Language arts for all grade levels and understand the gradual process of being able to write well for a student.

Reading

Reading and Language Arts is my strength due to my Bachelors degree in English and a Bachelors Degree in Speech Therapy. I find a great sense of accomplishment in helping others to read and interpret information within a text. I am certified in Multiple subjects up to 8th grade and have supplemental authorization in English Composition and Literature up to 12th grade. I have helped students prepare for the verbal portion of the SAT and the ACT and assisted in formating essays for the writing section of the SAT.

SAT Reading

I have extensive experience in reading, writing and critical analysis, all of which are essential components to passing the reading portion of the SAT. The SAT is a timed test and my goal to make sure that your child can complete the test in the required amount of time with as high a score as possible. I am well versed in all the verbal sections of the SAT since I was certified SAT tutor in my previous tutoring center. I hope to help your son or daughter get as high a qualifying score as possible on their exam.

SAT Writing

I have a credential in multiple subjects up to 12th grade and possess supplemental authorization from the states of California and Delaware to teach English Literature/Comprehension and Composition up to 12th grade. I have tutored students in the verbal portion for a separate agency and privately. Parents give given me excellent reviews based on their children's scores.

Speech

I possess a Bachelor's of Science in Speech Pathology from Utah State University. In my speech courses, I worked with many children who had communication disorders. I also have an elementary teaching credential, which qualifies me to teach language development and reading comprehension up to 8th grade.

Study Skills

I have a elementary teaching credential in grades Kindergarten up to 8th grade as well as single subject certification in English Literature and Composition. During my time as an elementary teacher I taught 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, Kindergarten and 2nd grade. In addition to that, I also taught 6th grade English. Teaching study skills were of extreme importance to the classroom dynamics and the academic success of the students. We would go over test taking strategies, Process of Elimation, ratio of study time to taking a test and completing a project.
