Approved subjects are in bold.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I am a Special Educator who has experience with ADD/ADHD students and I can attest to the patience it takes to help these students succeed. I have worked hard to get a reputation as a person who brings kindness, patience, and the skills to manage all types of students. If we don't help the students who are we going to count on in the future?
I have experience teaching American History. I am kind of a history buff, so a lot of the information comes second hand for me. Also my testimonials about my reliability and ability to help my students achieve their full potential is without question my strongest suit.
ASVAB is about applications to everyday math problems that you would use in practical ways. The problems consist of word problems, all 4 operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The objective is to pull the knowledge you have obtained over the years and condense it so you can be proficient enough to do well at this test.
I have always been involved in sports. I have played football, basketball, baseball, and lacrosse competitively for most of my life. Most of my friends say baseball is too slow to enjoy. They just don't know about the strategies and guess work involved in baseball. I have watched the Baltimore Orioles for 44 years so I have been through the winning years and now the losing years. Baseball can be compared to life. You are going to have some good years and some bad. You have to accept that. If the team gets away from the basics then the results will be a losing season. Your team has to have talent and luck too and that's where it becomes very entertaining.
Too many times we forget baseball is a game. The key is to relax and do your best and you'll reach the objective of baseball which is to enjoy.
I am a highly qualified teacher in all subject areas for grades one through eight. In my sixteen year career of teaching I've taught second through eighth grade. Keep in mind though my Advanced Professional Certificate allows me to teach first grade too. I have kept up on all the successful methods of teaching our future, you, the leaders of tomorrow. I don't lecture and spoon feed you information. I'll be counting on you to explain to me what you may be having problems with and then we can tackle them together. I have a simple philosophy. If you can put your mind to something for a certain length of time and never give up, you can accomplish anything.
I think tutoring is an area of education that is needed. I chose to do this because the class sizes are too large for all the students to get the attention they need. Our children need to experience education that enables them to demonstrate the skills, knowledge, and attitudes required for lifelong learning and becoming productive citizens in an ever-changing global society. I have the time and knowledge to lend to students what I have taught, but on a much smaller scale that I feel will meet with a much higher return of success. Just remember this one thing when picking a tutor. When I come through the door, whether it was at the library or at another neutral place did you feel I cared about you and your education or something else? If you picked that it seemed like I cared then that is the single most important quality a person can have as a motivation to teach you. If you don't have that feeling then please try someone else who you think will care. Thank You.
For most of my teaching career(17 years)I have been teaching elementary school. I enjoy it and I am most proficient in this area. Math is an exact subject that leaves no room for error. 2+2 =4. There's no getting around it. It will always be that until some genius proves otherwise. Math is also practical and is used for everyday needs. Counting, weighing, knowing shapes, money, and a host of other mathematical terminology that will be needed in your daughter's everyday life. I can make it fun because Math doesn't have to be boring. There are all kinds of Math games that can teach you and you won't even know they're teaching concepts from math that you'll need for the test.
I have taught grades 2 through 9 and have a concentration in English for the 6Th grade. When I did teach 9th it was a special education class. I am both certified in Special Education and regular education. I believe a student should have a strong command of the English language because speaking to someone in proper English is usually their first impression of you. Please consider me when deciding to tutor your child. Thank you.
Currently I have the GED approval from Wyzant and passed the test with an 80%.
I am very familiar with lacrosse. It's been 35 years since I first picked up my first lacrosse stick. I fell in love and haven't looked back since. After playing in High School and College, I went on to play in clubs until I turned 50. Meanwhile I coached at every level of lacrosse and also started a youth league so our High School could become competitive with the stronger scholar athletes in the area schools. I am currently the head coach of a middle school team in Northwest Baltimore. In our third year we reached the championship game.
In addition to this, I attend lacrosse conferences and keep the attitude that if you teach the students well they will enrich your life ten fold. That is what has happened to me. The scholar athletes appreciate after awhile the discipline, and hard work that goes into building a championship lacrosse program. It takes hard work and dedication.
Phonics is the basic pronunciation of words using the sounds of blends, consonants, and vowels. I currently work with a program called Hooked on Phonics and the program has had wonderful results. Currently I am a 6th grade Special Educator, who can teach in the regular education class. Thank you.
Public speaking is all about knowing your subject. I took two courses in College from a well known professor. He emphasized being prepared and putting your notes on index cards to guide you through your speech. In addition during the first speech we had to try to prove something about that topic and have the challenge of a rebuttal. Research of the topic was key in convincing your audience that what you said was true. Presentation to your audience convinces them that the words coming out of your mouth were the truth.
Reading is by far the most important subject among all the subjects taught. Math requires reading, especially word problems. That takes care of Math as being more important. And the others just trail behind because reading is required in all the other subjects.
I majored in Sociology in college and received a degree in the subject at Towson University. The subject covered a wide range of social issues including but not limited to Research, to criminology, behavioral statistics, and Social Work.
I've been a special educator for little over 3 years. Dyslexia is included with the umbrella of special education. There is a test to see if the child is dyslexic or to see if it's letter reversal. In any case it would have to be rectified for the student to be successful.
Study Skills are part of the curriculum used at the school at which I work. I go over technically how to take notes through a program called "Study Island". The students see a presentation on how to take notes and the importance of taking good notes so that when you go back to them later you understand them and retain them. Study skills are as important as knowing the core subjects.
I teach during the school year and my students possess a vocabulary copybook that they add at least one word to everyday. I also have a word wall that pertains to what we are studying that week.
