I have been tutoring ESL students for 20 years in Europe and in the States. In the past few years, I have been working at the Cambridge Rindge & Latin School in Cambridge as a tutor for high school students in English, Literature, Mathematics and History.

I ran my own educational video production business for 27 years in Cambridge until back problems and a poor economy forced me to close down. I spent most of those 27 years working in elementary and high school classrooms documenting mathematics curriculum being piloted. Tutoring is my 2nd career, but one closely related to my background in educational media.

Study Skills

I have been working at the Cambridge Rindge & Latin School in Cambridge as a tutor for high school students in English, Literature, Mathematics and History. I will help my students better organize their work by isolating each subject first, and looking at how well the student understands the basic core of that subject. I would then give the student a short quiz to test his/her understanding, and then ask how they feel about that subject.
Once I have done a similar introduction with each subject, we will then look at how long it has taken the student to take each exam I have given them. We will then try to allocate a time for the student to work on each each subject when he has homework.

I would then check back in 2-3 days to see how that approach has worked. Then, we could isolate subjects where the student need additional tutoring help.
