Hi! I'm Jennifer J., B.S., MEd, JD, PHD ABD WyzAnt Tutor
In my blog I will tell you everything you need to know about the "start-to-finish" process of preparing and taking the SAT and ACT exams. that will get you into the college or university of your choice.
Some Background About Me:
I teach classes and tutor privately for the PSAT,...
I have several students who would be glad to read more, if they have books recommended to them that are 'interesting'. I'm compiling a list of books for different grade levels, and would appreciate any recommendations from tutors or parents.
My immediate need is for books for an advanced 5th grader, and a 9th grader who is only interested in sports and the Odyssey!
Well, it is the time of year when the frenzy and buzz of talk about classrooms, teachers, textbooks, pencils, folders, and schedules begin. Some of you might be thinking past this year and onto high school or even college, or perhaps you have already signed
your child up for the SSAT, HSPT, SAT or ACT test. Now is definitely a good time to start preparing for those tests. In general, students...
Greetings Wyzant community, prospective students, fellow tutors:
I have just returned from my studies abroad and am ready to begin teaching again. Please take a look at my profile. My education ranges from my Masters in Physics, to my undergrad degrees in physics, biology and music. I just completed the coursework for
a masters program in peace and conflict resolution as well.
One way you can be very well prepared to tackle your exam is by taking practice tests. You probably already knew this. However, here is something you might not have known. The best way to do the practice tests is to replicate real testing conditions as much
as possible. In other words, wherever you take a practice test, try to make that space feel like the testing environment. This is very...
One key to success when you are preparing for your standardized test - or any test, for that matter - is to use visualization exercises. This may seem unscientific, and perhaps it is, but it is a techniques used by athletes, business professionals and successful
test takers the world over. Many of my students have benefited from this type of exercise, saying it helped them settle their minds...
Have you scheduled a time to take one of the standardized tests listed in the subject line? Are you thinking about signing up to take one of them? Have you taken one already, but have decided to take it again in the hopes of getting a higher score? Have
you taken one of the tests, and found the experience so rewarding, you plan to sign up and take the same test simply for the enjoyment? (If...
My wife is worried about me because I was tutoring in my dreams last night.
I'm a new tutor to this site. Within the past few days, I've been working on getting certified in as many subjects as possible. These are all of the subjects I'm certified to tutor in on the website. Most of the subjects are in math or science. Some are
in English topics as well like in reading and writing, etc. I also am certified to tutor to prepare for a lot of standardized tests...
The new school year beckons - be it middle or high school, college or post graduate study. Fall college visits, applications and essays are also just around the corner.
Get a jump on what you or your child may need in terms of support for specific academic subjects, computer skills, standardized tests (SSAT, ISEE, PSAT, SAT, ACT, ASVAB, GRE, etc.). I look forward to continuing my track record...
This afternoon, I found myself writing to one of my ESL students:
I am imagining you and your dog having a fine time at the cabin as I write this.
I bet you are in the cabin as well. In the first sentence at the cabin is correct, just as you would say "I am at home" rather than
in home. It would also be correct to say "I'm...
The best way to study for the SSAT/ISEE is to take a diagnostic test before you begin studying. Score the test so that your areas of apparent strength and weakness are clear. Then, go to work in your areas of weakness. If your area of weakness is word knowledge,
study vocabulary religiously every day. There are a number of good books on vocabulary development which I use when I tutor SSAT/ISEE...
You have educational goals. Next, you have a test to take. It's one of those big milestone tests for admission to college, such as the ACT, SAT, or GRE--or other standardized tests such as the SSAT, ASVAB, GED, or a professional licensing test. You want
a tutor who works hard to get you ready.
Help me be that tutor. Do these three things before our first session together.
1. If you...
Well, isn't this nice? Just as I am getting to know my new city, many of it's nicest people are choosing to try me as their tutor. What a great service WyzAnt supplies! I am full of potential new clients, and I am free to teach in the Learner-Centered, Discovery
Model teaching style that I favor. Of course, I can always "teach to the test" if you have an exam you want to get past,...
