Right from elementary children need good foundation. If we get strong at the basics, we don't need to fear that Math is Hard!! I can make my students feel better and make them get confidence. Practice is the Key. Working more problems,... read more

What a way to start off the New Year! First I met with a student for US History and Living Environment. She is taking the Regents exams in three weeks. When I first met with her, Cee had a fear of taking exams, and was very nervous. She struggled with understanding both subjects; the Historical Events and dates, as well as the vocabulary words for Biology. Her next struggles were understanding... read more

Have you always struggled with spelling words correctly? Would you be lost without the spell-check feature? There is one trick with spelling that I have taught students young and old: Find the word within the word that you know how to spell, then work on the parts you don't know. For example, the word reconfigure. You may not know how to spell configure or figure, but maybe you know how to... read more

This is what my student, Alysa, told me on Monday, December 3rd. She has been struggling with fractions, and so I would give her several practice exercises, and show her some new ways to do them. I had her convert mix numbers to improper fractions and vice versa. I had Alysa add, subtract, multiply and divide a variety of fractions. Just when she seems to understand them a bit, I had her cross... read more

I find the Wyzant website to be very beneficial to students and tutors. It is well organized and provides the structure needed for tutors to focus on their students. I also like the fact that the website can take credit cards, whereas, I am not setup for that. I much prefer to use a computer program to keep track of lesson plans, reviews and student information. It is also nice that the contact... read more

The most important tip for starting the new year is to KNOW THYSELF! You should know how you learn, if your teacher doesn't do a learning styles inventory, you can go on the computer and do it yourself. Then, very respectfully ask him or her to include your style of learning in the daily plans, especially if the area being taught is your weak area. Teachers can not reach you if they know nothing... read more

I taught in Minneapolis students for 41 years after I taught in North St. Paul/Maplewood and Teaneck, NJ which was the first district that voted to integrate. Starting with students on that wonderful new year students were confused about what their parents had fought about and they all made friends quickly. I have taught teachers in the United States, Canada, Singapore, South Africa and Bangladesh... read more

The basic idea is that some students, particularly students with learning issues like dyslexia, benefit from using their senses to activate and retrain parts of the brain that are used in reading. As a result, Orton-Gillingham based instruction features a lot of interesting hands-on activities... read more
