I wanted to take a moment and thank all the students and families I've gotten to know over the last few years through tutoring. It's been great getting to know you and your children and I'm glad I've been able to help them!

I hope everyone is staying warm inside today on this snowy snowy day!!!   Midterms are coming up in the next few weeks and I hope you are all creating a study schedule to work on material. Breaking up the material into small chunks every day will help you conquer the work and not feel overwhelmed by the last 4-5 months of material!    Just think - you learned all... read more

I got involved with WyzAnt in January of 2012. I had just started my graduate degree in education and was teaching part time at a local college. I really enjoyed helping my students learn and gain confidence and I wanted to build up my experience. I looked into a lot of different tutoring companies and found WyzAnt to be the easiest to use and highly regulated. So I signed up! I've had... read more

If you do try to email your personal information to a tutor, it will be removed from the email and likewise if a tutor tries to send you contact information... read more

Logical learners learn best by looking for order, using symbols, breaking down the whole into it's parts, identifying cause and effect and following structure. These students tend to reason in a logical manner, look for relationships, like puzzles, good at calculations, can manipulate functions, and analyze abstract ideas. Creating structure in your classroom or tutoring can engage these students... read more

Edmodo is a web community much like Facebook but can be used in the educational setting. The site was designed to bridge technology, digital literacy and the classroom though I've found it to be useful with tutoring. The tutor can set up a group on Edmodo for the student they are tutoring. The student, tutor and the child's parents are the only ones who have access to the group. The tutor can... read more

Intrapersonal learners are in-tune with their feelings, attitudes, principals and priorities. They are very good at assessing their own behavior and have strong awareness of their thought processes. They may be involved in volunteer or community activities. To support the intrapersonal learner, incorporating choice into activities, using analogues, have student set goals, include journal activities,... read more

Interpersonal learners learn best through interacting with a group - whether it's a group of 2 or 20. They are in-tune with the needs of others, are personable and have good social skills. Collaborative work, group assessment and leadership opportunities help these students out. Being able to interact with peers during learning experiences, having group work, doing role play, and other forms... read more

Existential learners are concerned about the big picture and how what they are learning fits into that picture. These students are driven by their core values and must have a good reason for doing something, a purpose. They seek meaningful learning, look to connect what they are learning with other things going on in the world or historically, desire a sense of belonging and look at information... read more

Visual learners are tuned into spatial orientation, thinking visually, acquiring knowledge through pictures, diagrams, video and slide shows. They are good at designing visually presented material. These students can see ideas, use mental images as a way of remembering, can manipulate models and ideas visually in their mind, and learn best by seeing something in action. When tutoring a visual... read more

Kinesthetic learners learn best by doing or being physically engaged in the lesson. These learners internalize content and express their ideas through body sensation and movement. Excelling when they learn through doing, they love doing hands-on activities, moving around the classroom and can master a concept when given the opportunity to physically manipulate materials, such as with a lab... read more

What are multiple intelligences? They are groupings of the unique learning styles that we all have. Each person is different and we all learn in different ways. Multiple intelligences are categories of each of those learning styles. The learning styles are: kinesthetic, existential, interpersonal, intrapersonal, logical, rhythmic (musical), naturalistic, linguistic and visual. Kinesthetic learners... read more

Hi Vincent! In order to solve for x, we need to get x on one side of the equation. So, we can do that by subtracting 96 from both sides: 9 + 2x - 96  = x + 96 - 96 (will cancel out on the right side of the equation) Next, compute 9 - 96 to decrease the amount of terms we...

If you're new to using a tutor, you might be wondering, how much time per week, or per session should I spend with a tutor? That can depend on your needs. If you are pretty confident with your material and just want that extra boost, an hour might be all you need. I find that with most of my students an hour and a half is optimal. Most students need the one-on-one personal touch to help explain... read more

Hi Everyone! Just a reminder that my rate is $30/hour for the Holidays! I suspect that I will keep this rate indefinitely. It's important to me that the help that tutoring can provide be accessible. By keeping my rates lower, I hope that more people can afford the help if they need it. Happy Holidays!!

Hi students! I've lowered my rates, starting today for the Holiday Season. The rate of $30/hr will stay in effect from today until January 2nd. Also for the month of November, I am showing my thanks to you for choosing me as your tutor by making your first lesson free. Thanks!

Tutoring can help you in many ways. A tutor can provide you with important one-on-one time that you may need but can't get in class. Being able to focus our attention on you for the tutoring session can be just what a student needs to clear up ideas or work through problems. Having someone there to bounce ideas off of, give confidence and support and clear up misconceptions when they happen... read more

I've just spent the last five hours preparing for my biology teaching certification exam. Here are some problems I ran in to and some strategies: 1. I would read the question wrong. Either I read it too fast or I misinterpreted the question and selected the wrong answer. Be careful to go slow and read what the question is asking. 2. I second-guessed my first answer. More than a few times... read more
