Excited to teach and tutor students in Spanish here in the Leland Area!

This is really exciting for me. I fell in love with Spanish in 9th grade, even went on to study Spanish at La Universidad Internacional de Guadalajara, studied business and literature in Spanish at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and continued my Spanish studies at Columbia International University. I pastored at a hispanic church in Columbia, SC. In fact, my first sermons... read more

Why I Tutor

I love kids and I love learning.  I strongly believe that every student can learn and will learn when provided the necessary tools.  Kids don't  always learn, during school hours, what they need to become successful.  Tutors help bridge the gap between unsuccessful and successful students.  Tutoring provides the the student with the opportunity to receive one on one... read more

Reflections on the Meaning of Tutoring

Tutoring to me means helping students understand material and gain confidence using newly acquired skills. Tutoring to me means guiding students through mental roadblocks and better preparing them for the future. Tutoring to me means setting students up for success by making sure they can explain how they got an answer. I fear, however, that for some students tutoring means paying... read more

Tutoring More Than One Student

The WyzAny poll recently asked if I'd have internet in tutoring more than one student. I love the idea of teaching multiple students because there is no better feeling than a student gets that look of clarity in their eyes and understands something they were having difficulty with. So when there's more than one student that I can give this moment of clarity to it only gets better. :-D

Five Tips To Keep Young Students Attentive And Engaged

Working with high school students is very straightforward. Kids in their mid to late teens are often focused and self-motivated to learn and perform. They are thinking about college and beyond, and usually have some goals in mind that they would like to achieve. Young children, however, are not as determined to plow through hours of mathematical tutelage as their older counterparts. They are... read more

The Challenge of Tutoring Students in Writing

Greetings, reader!   I am new to Wyzant but have been a part time tutor in a variety of subjects for 6 years. One of the most common subjects I help students in is English/Writing, and it is by far the most difficult. The challenge is not knowing how to write a great essay given the prompt, but how to get the student to write the essay using his/her own voice, style and structure... read more

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn." Benjamin Franklin   I have always been told that to teach, you must be a student yourself!

3 Time Management Tips to Increase Productivity

Unless you are traveling in a spaceship and moving close to the speed of light, time passes at the same rate for everyone. The Earth takes approximately 24 hours to complete one full rotation on its axis, which has resulted in a day being 24 hours long. So why do some people seem to be able to accomplish so much more when we all have the same amount of time in our day? Simply, they have mastered... read more

Tutoring is something I started in the latter half of college once I started to take upper level math courses. I loved tutoring and wished I had a team of tutors to help me when I was struggling... read more

Great Resources I Use All the Time

1. Hyperphysics This website is basically a concept map of every physics topic, and I mean every. It's not a comprehensive guide to all of them, but it provides a basic overview of pretty much everything you could ever want to know about physics. It's not a "Physics for Dummies" site, so if you're struggling, you'll still need a competent tutor. That being said, if you... read more

Tailoring Math Education To Different Learning Styles

Math can be a puzzling and often frustrating subject for students. Some pupils seem to effortlessly pluck A+’s from the heavens, while others grind away to earn average grades at best. Why the discrepancy? Are some brains simply predisposed to math success, while others are hopelessly misaligned? Of course not. If I believed that, I wouldn’t be teaching math. So what’s the deal? Why the... read more

This is normal right? It's not just me? Learning a language for real this time.

Learning a language is a funny thing. Lots of people in the world today learn their second language as a child and that language is (maybe) usually English. Many people in the world are introduced to a new language as children during a period when learning a language is optimal. I am well past this age and I have just now begun to start learning a second language, formally. For what... read more
