So my name is Ashley and I am a college student who is making money on the side by tutoring in areas of reading and writing(and math depending on the level) Obviously, you are wondering if I am going to be a good tutor for you or your child, so to help you in your decision I shall discuss teaching methods to help you decide on this matter.

First off as I mentioned above, I am currently enrolled in college. What I did not mention is that I am an English major and I'm almost done with my first two years of schooling, however I still have quite a few more considering the fact I want to get a high enough degree so that I can be a college professor. Also, I am getting this degree so that I can pursue a career in writing so obviously I cannot be an atrocious tutor in the subject-else I would be wasting a lot of money on this degree!

If you are looking for a tutor in the area of reading I give two options: we can pick books and poems off of a list I have created for each age group and study of of these or we can use your students assigned readings and I can tutor them step by step in their time frames for these particular readings. Once we have decided which option we shall do-or both if you feel you feel there is a need-I shall then asses the students current skills by having them read and annotate a short passage. Going off of this I shall begin teaching better forms of literary analysis and better ways to annotate. The prolonged goal is for the student to ultimately be able to read through passages and pick out hidden symbols, meanings, literary elements, and to overall be able to better understand what they are reading. As I mentioned I will also usually include poetry analysis into the mix simply because it helps student get the hang of finding hidden context and elements. I will state, if we are going off of my list of books, short stories, and poems I will always have the parents of students approve first-obviously if you are a college student this part does not really pertain to you.

If you are looking for a tutor in the area of writing I generally stick to the same option and simply adapt it to each students age and needs. First I will asses the students writing skills in a timed short essay-I will find options for each age off of standardized tests available to public domain. Once this is happened I will start working with students on all of their needs: increasing vocabulary, improving spelling, improving grammar, learning how to use literary tools and elements in their writing, and so forth. I will also help students improve their brainstorming abilities for stories and essays-especially in a timed manor.

I should note I also use study skills that are beneficial to learn in my tutoring like: how to organize notes properly, how to make and use flashcards, ways to memorize certain things depending if you are more of an auditory or more of a visual learner, and much more.
