“**Great tutor!**”

I have more than twenty years in the classroom experience teaching. I hold a California k-12 multiple subject (any classroom, any grade) credential and a Kentucky K-5 credential. There really is no one size fits all program for each student or each subject. In addition to my formal training, I bring an open mind and a unique experience into the

Background Check:

In-person lessons

I reached out to Mr. C when I needed help to pass the math and science Praxis II tests. I was able to contact him easily by email or phone, as well as set up lessons at my convenience. After a month and a half of tutoring, I improved my math score by 30 points and passed! I also improved in science and got a passing score! I couldn't have done it without Mr. C. He was very encouraging, offered great test taking advice, and continued to provide me with challenging practice questions similar to those on the actual test. I highly recommend Mr. C to anyone who needs that extra push to pass a tough test.

I had a good first lesson with Keith. I am excited to continue my preparations for the Praxis exam and look forward to learning more about the test, and how to pass, in future lessons.

I've only had one session with Keith, from my first session I can say he is professional, respectful, and invests time into teaching his students, he expects the student to invest time in learning. With that being said, I sensed a no tolerance for lackadaisical studying - this is what I'm looking for.

I agree with everything that Keith has been saying. I do feel improvement but I do still have hick ups when I come to questions I'm really confused about.

Keith is a tutor who is best suited for those who struggle with math. As a student looking to conquer the GRE Math portion, I had thought Keith would be the key to unlocking it. I had taken the time to go through a GRE study book's math test and write down my process and answers hoping that Keith would be able to review it and see where my strengths and weaknesses lied. When I handed it to him, Keith set it aside, handed me a little notebook of his own questions, and then told me to work on those. While I did that, instead of reviewing my work, he pulled out a laptop and played on it instead. Keith's teaching style is to aid you when you need someone to explain things, and he can do that. But for me, who needed someone to help enhance my math, he had nothing to offer; he even said such at the end of the session.

**My biggest warning for those who would seek out Keith for GRE Math is that he is on the cusp of becoming outdated. The notebook that he had me work in had a large amount of content that is not in any of the three GRE study books that I have studied.**

Lastly, there were some issues with professionalism...he showed up 15 minutes late because of a flat tire, which did not bother me much, I worked on my math in the meantime. But then we neared the end of the second hour he let me know that he had scheduled another student for the same hour and offered to charge me for 30 minutes of the hour...had I not already arrived that his tutoring wouldn't have worked, I would have been very upset. I instead thanked him for his time and left an hour early.

I regret that Matt thinks that I am "on the cusp of becoming outdated", but during the last year every single one of my GRE students has achieved a score that exceeded the stated standards for admissions to their preferred university programs.

Matt neglected to point out a few key facts.

First the GRE test books he used were at least 5 years out of date. My "little notebook" is culled from tests that were administered during the 6 months prior to our meeting. The purpose of our first meeting, as I explained, was to determine where his strengths and weakness were using the current test criteria.

I did not double schedule a lesson, WyzAnt scheduling process prevents that from occurring. I offered him an extra hour at 1/2 price to offset the time I was late due to the flat tire. He did not depart early.

Our child struggles with math and avoids it at all costs, but after her session with Keith she came out confident and stated that she had a good time. Thanks Keith.

Taught me some quick tips for test taking and managing my time better during test. Better yet, gave me the confidence to test well. My score bumped 24 points and I passed!!!

Today, 6 2, 2015 is my first tutoring session with Mr. Keith. However, he taught me how to solve word problems something that I have struggled with fr years. Things that I like about Mr. Keith's tutoring sessions includes, he explains each problem as well as provides examples.

This tutor was a great help to our son for a year and a half with the BYU independent study course, especially in algebra. He was very patient in explaining such a difficult course to our son, who has had such a hard time in the past with math. He is reliable and on-time. He was willing to try different techniques in tutoring. This tutor is generally a nice person, and our son enjoyed the sessions. Our son ended up with a B+ final grade in algebra, which is a testament to this tutor's abilities. We highly recommend Keith C.

Keith was a great tutor who provided me with easy to use math methods that helped me tackle math equations with efficiency. I was astounded by how easy and comfortable my approach to math is now with only 2 weeks of studying for my GRE test. Not only was he attentive towards my needs, he was very quick with answering calls and emails. I could tell Keith has had a lot of experience from students of all backgrounds through the support and levels of math he instructed me through. I was left with a yearning of more learning with Keith's tutoring program and my confidence in math has improved overall. He is definitely a great instructor who has many skills in teaching. I definitely encourage individuals who need a close and successful tutor to Keith.

Keith is a good tutor and what I needed to help me with giving me skills to prepare me for the reading PPST. He makes you work hard each day and gives you feedback that will make you confident come test day!

Keith was such a wonderful tutor and I highly recommend him! He is very flexible and always comes with a variety of materials to work with. I am new to the area and needed tutoring in Praxis math specifically. I learned so much from him and he helped me prepare for my test and taught me helpful strategies and different ways to think regarding math questions.

Keith really understood the struggle I had with taking my mathematics Praxis exam. After not passing it several times, Keith really pushed me by helping me practice over and over again with practice questions until I mastered it. He does not hesitate to tell anybody what you are doing wrong, and is extremely helpful in telling people how to improve. I really appreciate all of the help he has given me. Practice makes perfect, and Keith really helped me to improve and pass my exams in no time.

Keith provides math tutoring services to our 6th grade son. We were looking for help in strengthening his math confidence and reducing math anxiety. Keith met and surpassed our expectations in several ways, including: providing clear, constructive, and meaningful instruction and also by being patient. Keith is extremely organized, very easy to contact and he appreciates good back and forth communication. Overall, we are very pleased with Keith's services and would highly recommend him.

Keith was able to identify my weakness and set me upon the right path in a short period of time. He had less than a month. He taught me what I needed to know and gave me the confidence to perform. It made all the difference.

Keith has been great so far. He is easy to work with, and my son likes meeting with him each week. We plan to continue with Keith for as long as possible.

Keith not only is knowledgeable of the subject matter, but he sincerely cares that our son progresses to his goal and then some! My son said he has learned more with Keith in a couple of months than he has his whole senior year. Thank you, Keith!!

My son has worked with Keith for almost a year now and the experience has been truly invaluable. My son has gone from a total lack of understanding of Science and Physics to really "getting it" and liking it. His test grades have been nothing less than an A or B. We are truly grateful for Keith's expertise. I like knowing that Keith is there when we need him.

I have used Keith for multiple subjects throughout my last 2 years at UK and he helped me to ensure that I passed those classes! He is patient and more than willing to adjust to his students style! I highly recommend him!

Keith is a great tutor. Keith has been helping me with the ASVAB and his methods really work.

I've been taking practice test for the ASVAB at home, and my scores have improved a lot thanks

to Keith. If you're wanting a better ASVAB score I highly recommended him as a tutor.

So pleased how my son is progressing in his tutoring. Mr. C. knows exactly how to engage my son! I saw a wonderful, smiling kid tonight after his session. Thank you Mr. C!

My son is very happy with Mr. C he wanted to write down: "I am one of Mr. C's students and I cannot believe what I have accomplished just in two months. I have actually progressed twice as usual then with my math teacher. I am now twice as better in Pre-Algebra (Literally!!) than just two months ago. He really amazed me how great his tutoring is". Besides, as a mom, I can tell you that he is very respectful, formal and always on time person. Thank you Mr. C.

Enrique is a unique student, learning algebra and mastering English at the same time. I am proud that I was able to help him move from basic middle school math to on grade level High School Algebra in less than nine months. His progress says more about him as a student than my skills as a bilingual math teacher.

I needed to pass the math portion of the Praxis exam in order to be accepted to my major at UK. I have always struggled with standardized math tests and this one was no exception. I missed passing by a few points and had only one more time to take the test again before the end of the year. Keith was easy to reach and very flexible in working around my finals schedule. He quickly assessed where my weaknesses were with the test, provided me with some important strategies for taking the test and I PASSED!!! I only met with him a few times before the test but his strategy in working with me was exactly what I needed to get those few extra points. He was a great tutor and I will definitely use him again when I have to take the next set of these exams! Thank you, Keith!

And is able to assess their individual needs very well. Our daughter has been very resistant and unhappy with past tutors. I believe Keith listens and discerns the way a student learns best. We are grateful!

Keith was aware of my son's LD and understood his limitations with respect to attention and time. He was very patient and both my son and I felt very comfortable with him. Definitely knew his Algebra II.

We have been working with Keith for only 2 months and I have seen a TREMENDOUS difference with my daughter's math scores. She is more confident in class and has gone from a "D" to an "A". He has a way with kids that gets them to focus. My daughter normally balks at doing homework. But when he's here she knows who is in charge. She sits, she focuses, and I can see a huge difference in her perception of her work. I love seeing her smile with pride.

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.

The English test is a 75-question, 45-minute test, covering:

Usage/Mechanics; punctuation, grammar and usage, sentence structure And Rhetorical Skills

Special emphasis on strategy, organization and style.

Spelling, vocabulary, and rote recall of rules of grammar aren't tested. See sample questions or read tips and strategies.

The test consists of five prose passages, each one accompanied by multiple-choice test questions. Different passage types are included to provide variety.

Some questions refer to underlined portions of the passage and offer several alternatives to the underlined portion. You must decide which choice is most appropriate in the context of the passage.

Some questions ask about an underlined portion, a section of the passage, or the passage as a whole. You must decide which choice best answers the question posed.

Many questions include "NO CHANGE" to the underlined portion or the passage as one of the choices.

During the last 20 years I have been a classroom teacher in all testable portions of both the SAT and ACT examinations.

I have 20 years experience teaching science at the middle school, high school and college level. The ACT assessment measures high school students' general educational development and their capability to complete college-level work with the multiple choice tests covering four skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. The optional Writing Test measures skill in planning and writing a short essay. Specifically, ACT states that its scores provide an indicator of "college readiness", and that scores in each of the subtests correspond to skills in entry-level college courses in English, algebra, social science, humanities, and biology. According to a research study conducted by ACT, Inc., in 2003, a relationship was found between a student's ACT composite score and the possibility of he or she earning a college degree.

I have been a classroom instructor for twenty years, working extensively with Special Needs Students; developmentally disabled, ADD, ADHD, Autisium and Aspergers Syndrome (since reclassified as part of the Autisum Spectrum).

During that time, I was twice nominated for a Disney Golden Apple Award (excellence in teaching), served on the State Curriculum Committee, was a Master teacher in my District and was a State authorized Mentor Teacher.

I have a California K-12 Multiple Subject (any classroom, any subject) credential and a Kentucky P-5 Teaching Credential.

The Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT ) is a standardized test similar to the SAT and ACT. The AFOQT measures aptitudes and is used to select applicants for officer commissioning programs, such as Officer Training School (OTS) » or Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (Air Force ROTC). It is also used for selection into specific training programs such as pilot and combat systems officer training.

The AFOQT is a required test for all cadets and students on scholarship or in the POC .

Important Facts:

The AFOQT is taken your junior year in the AFROTC program.

The AFOQT can only be taken twice. (Waiverable – please note that waivers are NOT guaranteed.)

Examinees must wait 180 days between tests.

AFOQT scores never expire.

The most recent AFOQT test score is the one that counts.

As a former officer in the military and a JROTC instructor, I offered frequent study sessions for this test. My students always did well.

I have a California K-12 Multiple Subject (any classroom, any subject) credential and a Kentucky P-5 Teaching Credential with a High School/Middle School Mathematics endorsement.

I have been a classroom instructor in this level of Algebra for twenty years. My skill set strength is explaining the algebra problem solving process in such a way that every student not only understands how but why and soon achieves mastery.

During that time I was twice nominated for a Disney Golden Apple Award (excellence in teaching), served on the State Math Curriculum Committee, was a Master teacher in my District and a State authorized Mentor Teacher

I have an Associate of Arts and Bachelor of Arts with a minor in Anthropology. The minor required 38 hours of classroom instruction and 1 semester of leading a seminar and tutoring undergraduate students. Additionally I taught a semester of Cultural Anthropology at a Community College in California. Anthropology's basic focuses are "What defines human life and society?", "How are social relations among humans organized?", "The precursors of Homo sapiens?", "Defining the parameters of humans' physical traits?", "Why are there variations among different groups of humans?", "How has the evolutionary past of Homo sapiens influenced its social organization and culture?".

My AA and BA with a minor in anthropology contained 12 hours of archaeology and an addition 3 hours in field excavations.

I am a California certified classroom instructor with more than 20 years of experience in teaching. In addition to the required course work required by the State of California for instruction of special needs (ADD, ADHD, the Austism spectrum) students in the mainstream classroom. I took additional classes to facilitate my skills in this area. For three years I was a RSP, resource teacher, traveling from classroom to classroom assisting teachers and students who were struggling in certain subject but not more than two academic years behind their peer group. I also taught for two years in a classroom with students that were ending final certification as "special needs" with the assignment to schools or teachers certified as Special Education teachers.

With thousands of different jobs for enlisted personnel and officers, there’s a lot to do in the Military. The ASVAB Career Exploration Program can help young adults identify and explore potentially satisfying occupations and develop effective strategies to realize career goals.

The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) is one of the most widely used, multiple-aptitude tests in the world, developed and maintained by the Department of Defense. More than half of all high schools nationwide administer the ASVAB test to students in grades 10, 11 and 12 (sophomores cannot use their scores for enlistment eligibility). Students may also take the test at another school or through a recruiter and may retake the test at any time.

The ASVAB consists of the following eight individual tests:

General Science

Arithmetic Reasoning

Word Knowledge

Paragraph Comprehension

Mathematics Knowledge

Electronics Information

Auto and Shop Information

Mechanical Comprehension

Students are provided with scores on each of these individual tests and three Career Exploration Score composites: Verbal Skills, Math Skills and Science and Technical Skills. The battery takes approximately three hours to complete.

I am a retired science teacher. I have over twenty years experience in the classroom teaching human biology, veterinary biology and general biology. I have also spent the last two years tutoring nursing, Veterinary Science Majors and Pre-Med students at the University level.

My students have had tremendous success in these classes and I am confident that you will also. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you.

Discrete mathematics is the study of mathematical structures that are fundamentally discrete (separate and distinct) rather than continuous. In contrast to real numbers that have the property of varying "smoothly", the objects studied in discrete mathematics; such as integers, graphs, and statements in logic but do not vary smoothly in this way, but have distinct, separated values. Discrete mathematics therefore excludes topics in "continuous mathematics" such as calculus and analysis. Discrete objects can often be enumerated by integers. More formally, discrete mathematics has been characterized as the branch of mathematics dealing with countable sets, that have the same cardinality (counting) as subsets of the natural numbers, including rational numbers but not real numbers.

I have 20 years experience teaching in special needs classrooms. Beyond that I also have dyslexia, this coupled with my training gives me exceptional insight in helping these students.

Economics is the social science that analyzes the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. Political economy was the earlier name for the subject, but economists in the latter 19th century suggested 'economics' as a shorter term for 'economic science' that also avoided a narrow political-interest connotation and as similar in form to 'mathematics', 'ethics', and so forth.

A focus of the subject is how economic agents behave or interact and how economies work. Consistent with this, a primary textbook distinction is between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics examines the behavior of basic elements in the economy, including individual agents (such as households and firms or as buyers and sellers) and markets, and their interactions. Macroeconomics analyzes the entire economy and issues affecting it, including unemployment, inflation, economic growth, and monetary and fiscal policy.

Other broad distinctions include those between positive economics (describing "what is") and normative economics (advocating "what ought to be"); between economic theory and applied economics; between rational and behavioral economics; and between mainstream economics (more "orthodox" and dealing with the "rationality-individualism-equilibrium nexus") and heterodox economics (more "radical" and dealing with the "institutions-history-social structure nexus").

Science education should begin with an introduction to basic science-related concepts early in a child’s education. Elementary teachers can instill an appreciation for how and why things work the way they do by creating hands-on learning centers where students use the senses to observe, investigate, and discover. Middle school science is a crucial time for capturing a child’s love for the subject. Earth and life science are the key classroom topics. At this grade level, the majority of science concepts are presented in a laboratory setting. The classroom environment should accommodate both group and individual experiences. High school and college science teachers present complex concepts in instructional and investigational settings.

The science lab is used to investigate chemistry, biology, and physics topics. Students are required to understand laboratory safety rules and how to use equipment. Lesson plans should develop an understanding of complex systems, generate new ideas, make predictions, and apply standard scientific law to solve problems.

English Language Arts is a journey of exploration. Each student should be afforded the opportunity to find their own voice and their area of interest, in an environment of directional control. The student provides the voice and together with the teacher they insure that the mechanics of the language allows that voice to be heard.

In each assignment the teacher points the student in the direction of their strengths and creates an underpinning scaffold for their weaknesses. The student then reinforces those strengths and builds new strengths based on that supporting scaffold. This is very much a Socratic voyage for both the teacher and the student. The questions they both ask creates the direction of the learning for both of them. Of course the teacher must always be the primary helmsman, keeping a weather eye on the course of study. Ensuring that students master the base skills needed for the next phase of their education and life.

I have 20 plus years in the classroom environment teaching experience and two teaching certificates. All of my classroom instruction was done in classroom with students from Korea, Japan, China, Mexico, Central and South America. I was granted a California ESL permit. I have a California Teaching Certificate in K-12 multiple subject credential and a Kentucky K-5 Credential.

I have a BA and AA in Health, Recreation, Physical Education. I was an Army Master Fitness Instructor. I was also a Director of Aquatics for the YMCA, where I was directly responsible for fitness instructor training and fitness programs both in and out of the pool. Among my teaching experience is five years of physical education and fitness instruction

I have a BA and AA in Health, Recreation, Physical Education. I was an Army Master Fitness Instructor. I was also a Sports Director for the YMCA, where I was directly responsible for volunteer football coach training and fitness programs. Among my teaching experience is five years of physical education and fitness instruction and I coached an Army team while at Ft Bennington Ga and Germany.

I have been a test preparation tutor/teacher for the last fifteen years. The key to success in standardized testing is to understand the nature of standardized tests and the mechanics of what is on the test. The GED comprises five tests: "Language Arts: Writing", "Social Studies", "Science", "Language Arts: Reading", and "Mathematics".

Language Arts: Two parts, Writing.

The first covers sentence structure, organization, usage, and mechanics. Test-takers read text from business, informational, and instructional publications and then correct, revise, or improve the text according to Edited American English .

The second part requires the student to write an essay on an assigned topic in 45 minutes. A passing essay must have well-focused main points, clear organization, and specific development of ideas, and demonstrate the writer's control of sentence structure, punctuation, grammar, word choice, and spelling. The essay should be long enough to develop the topic adequately.

Social studies

This covers American history, world history, civics and government, economics, and geography.

Science

This 80-minute test of 50 multiple-choice questions covers life science, earth science, space science, and physical science. It measures the candidate's skill in understanding, interpreting, and applying science concepts to visual and written text from academic and workplace contexts. The test focuses on what a scientifically literate person must know, understand, and be able to do.

Language Arts: Reading

This 65-minute, 40-question test examines a test-taker's ability to read and understand texts similar to those encountered in high-school English classrooms.

Mathematics

This 90-minute, 50-question test has two equally weighted parts, the first of which allows candidates to use calculators, while the second forbids their use. Forty of the 50 questions are multiple-choice; the other 10 use an alternate format, requiring the test-taker to record answers on either a numerical or coordinate-plane grid.

Genetics deals with the molecular structure and function of genes, gene behavior in context of a cell or organism (e.g. dominance and epigenetics), patterns of inheritance from parent to offspring, and gene distribution, variation and change in populations,such as through Genome-Wide Association Studies. Given that genes are universal to living organisms, genetics can be applied to the study of all living systems, from viruses and bacteria, through plants and domestic animals, to humans. During my teaching career I taught genetics either as a stand alone class or as a part of human biology classes almost every one of my 20 years.

During the past twenty years I have worked as a mentor teacher for Los Angeles Unified School District where I helped new teachers prepare for their qualifications tests (Praxis and Praxis 2), their entrance exams to graduate school (GRE) and their culmination exams (Comps). The test taking strategies and study methods I developed working with this population resulted in an overall first time pass rate of 91%. By comparison Kaplan, a commercial company, only has a 72% first time pass rate. I have never had a student that had to take any of these tests a third time.

I cannot promise you the same results, but I do promise that I will give you my very best efforts. We will work hard at helping you achieve your dream the very first time.

During my tenure at the University of Southern California and with Los Angeles Unified School District I offered seminars for students and teachers that were preparing for standardized tests; GED, AFOQT, ASVAB, CHSEE, SAT, ACT, CBEST, MCAT and GRE. All of these tests have certain factors the same. They all measure total educational level and ability to recall subject specific information. My seminars focused on enhancing both and reducing the effective filters generally encounter by test takers. In the case of the MCAT my training as a combat medic and my education in biomechanics eased the process. As a result those that participated in my classes scored ten to fifteen percent higher than their peer group. More importantly I never had a student that didn't achieve a passing score.

Microsoft Excel is a commercial spreadsheet application written and distributed by Microsoft for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. It features calculation, graphing tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language called Visual Basic for Applications. It has been a very widely applied spreadsheet for these platforms, especially since version 5 in 1993, and it has almost completely replaced Lotus 1-2-3 as the industry standard for spreadsheets. Excel forms part of Microsoft Office. The current versions are 2010 for Microsoft Windows and 2011 for Mac OS X.

NCLEX examination covers the following "categories of client needs":

Safe, Effective Care Environment

- Management of Care

- Safety and Infection Control

Health Promotion and Maintenance

- Growth and Development Through the Life Span

- Prevention and Early Detection of Disease

Psychosocial Integrity

- Coping and Adaptation

- Psychosocial Adaptation

Physiological Integrity

- Basic Care and Comfort

- Pharmacological and Parenteral Therapies

- Reduction of Risk Potential

- Physiological Adaptation

The NCLEX RN test is given in computer adaptive format, which means that the next question you receive will depend on the answer you gave before. Correct answers will mean questions at a higher skill level, while wrong answers will mean going back to a lower level. Those doing well right off the bat will have to answer fewer question, as they've demonstrated by their answers a mastery of the basics. The software will keep providing new questions until satisfactory competency, or the lack of it, is demonstrated. So test takers will answer between 75 and 265 questions.

My degree is in exercise physiology and between 1979 and 1983 I worked as a combat medic with the U.S. Army, in order to qualify for the advanced Special Forces course I had to take and pass NCLEX. Prior to attending Officer Candidate Course I trained medic qualified candidates for their qualification NCLEX.

Organic chemistry is that branch of chemistry that deals with the structure, properties, and reactions of compounds that contain carbon. It is a highly creative science. Chemists in general and organic chemists in particular can create new molecules never before proposed which, if carefully designed, may have important properties for the betterment of the human experience. I have twenty years experience teaching the sciences to include general chemistry and organic chemistry.

I am a certified (California K12, any classroom, any subject) (Kentucky P5 multiple subject) teacher. While working in California I was identified as "extremely highly qualified", as a mentor teacher and a Master Teacher. Among my duties as both mentor teacher and master teacher was to prepare the new teachers and Paraprofessionals on the Teacher Track for the Praxis exam. My cadre had a 90% success rate.

I have been a reading teacher in all levels with all age groups for twenty years.

During that time I was twice nominated for the Disney Golden Apple Award (excellence in teaching), served on the State Curriculum Committee, was a Master teacher in my District and a State authorized Mentor Teacher.

I have a California K-12 Multiple Subject (any classroom, any subject) credential and a Kentucky P-5 Teaching Credential.

During the last 20 years I have been a classroom teacher in all testable portions of both the SAT and ACT examinations.

In addition to the required course work required by the State of California for instruction of special needs (ADD, ADHD, the Austism spectrum) students in the mainstream classroom. I took additional classes to facilitate my skills in this area. For three years I was a RSP, resource teacher, traveling from classroom to classroom assisting teachers and students who were struggling in certain subject but not more than two academic years behind their peer group. I also taught for two years in a classroom with students that were ending final certification as "special needs" with the assignment to schools or teachers certified as Special Education teachers.

I have 20 plus years in elementary, middle and high school classroom environments. I hold a California K-12 Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and a Kentucky K-5 Credential. Additionally, I implemented a school wide training program where the teachers learned how to use Cornell Notes as a method of improving student learning via a concise application of organizational skills and multiple modality learning.

Beyond the public school setting, I also presented an introductory seminar at Orange Coast College, University of California at Irvine and University of Southern California to incoming freshman student athletes on time management, organizational skills and study skills. These three items have been consistently identified as the main factors in strident drop out and failing classes among college students.

I have a BA and AA in Health, Recreation, Physical Education. I was an Army Master Fitness Instructor. I was also a Director of Aquatics for the YMCA, where I was directly responsible for fitness instructor training and fitness programs both in and out of the pool.

I have also held an American Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructor, taught swimming at all levels and all age groups ranging from Mommy and Me, to college aged non-swimmers and senior water aerobics.

I have extensive experience mentoring people who are preparing to take their professional qualifications test, that includes TOEFL.

To date nearly 80% of all those that I have worked with have passed the on the first attempt. I cannot guarantee that you will as successful but I can promise you that I take your success personally and I will give you the very best effort.

I look forward to working with you.

English Vocabulary is a journey of exploration. Each student should be afforded the opportunity to find their own words and their own voice in their area of interest, in an environment of directional control.

In each assignment the teacher points the student in the direction of their strengths and creates an underpinning scaffold for their weaknesses. The student then reinforces those strengths and builds new strengths based on that supporting scaffold. This is very much a Socratic voyage for both the teacher and the student. The questions they both ask creates the direction of the learning for both of them. Of course the teacher must always be the primary helmsman, keeping a weather eye on the course of study. Ensuring that students master the base skills needed for the next phase of their education and life.

Academic writing in English is linear, which means it has one central point or theme with every part contributing to the main line of argument, without digressions or repetitions. Its objective is to inform rather than entertain. As well as this it is in the standard written form of the language. There are eight main features of academic writing that are often discussed. Academic writing is to some extent: complex, formal, objective, explicit, hedged, and responsible. It uses language precisely and accurately.

Written language is relatively more complex than spoken language. Written language has longer words, it is lexically more dense and it has a more varied vocabulary. It uses more noun-based phrases than verb-based phrases. Written texts are shorter and the language has more grammatical complexity, including more subordinate clauses and more passives.
