Today I had my second lesson with a 14 year old who wants to learn how to do an eComerce website.  It is SO much fun when they are interested.  This kid was asking all the right questions.   At the same time, you have to remember that you still have to cover the basics no matter.  I tried to skip ahead to a concept and we didn't have language enough for him to understand... read more

I just tutored my very first Online tutoring session.   No, please don't get me wrong.  I've done plenty of tutoring!   I've tutored 14 and 16 hour-days straight helping students prepare for their final exams, and I've gained, in my best reasonable approximation, well over 10,000 hours of experience tutoring.  Because I used to do it full time!  And now... read more

Hello everyone!    I figured I could start off my first post with a little bit more information about what I have to offer to any of my students.   Currently, I am 18 and finishing my Senior year of High School at an all girls' school in Rochester, NY. I will be attending a college nearby in the fall and planning on majoring in English with a concentration in creative... read more

Hi everyone,   I hope all is well. Recently, I realized I am able to tutor full time. It is my hope to do so, but I need to start marketing. Sadly, just having a MA in Teaching and near completion of a MA in English will not suffice. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.   Thank you!

It can be well beyond 15 minutes!  I love teaching Latin to middle schoolers and have lots of fun coming up with games for them to learn/practice certain grammar or syntax points.  That's when the markers and colored paper come out.     Also, I have assigned homework in the past, so I have to create that sometimes.  Or correct something they might sumbit between... read more

I am a lifelong learner nearly completed with my PhD.  Originally from Northern NY, but recently relocated to Mid-TN. I love learning as well as sharing that love with students, helping them to become the best they can be in any given area.  I tend to be a bit strict, but the time spent in tutoring should be spent to provide the best instruction possible to the student within the timeframe... read more

A lot of students come to me because they are struggling in math or science.  I try to figure out the reason why they are struggling.  Many students will quote the reason they're struggling because of their dislike of the subject.  Majority of these students do not have a strong foundation in their respective subject of need.  I have found that the fastest way for students... read more

This blog is primarily for parents and guardians:   Why do I encourage students to attend after school tutoring for two hours every week day?  After all, the student could do a variety of other things during such time-span, right?  Though we live in an era of diversity, busy schedules, and opportunities; wisdom demands a solid focus on the most and more important.   You... read more

I am always so happy to hear comments from my students and parents about wanting to come visit me!  I love it when my students think that working with me is fun because I try really hard to make whatever we are doing fun.  Recently, it seems that everyone is working on homophones and spelling challenges.  I make games out of it by writing the words on cards and playing "memory"... read more

I am writing a letter of recommendation for Sharona C. She was my Cantonese teacher that I met in Chinatown in San Francisco, California. She was an excellent teacher! She possessed all the necessary skills and characteristics that I needed in my teacher so that I could study at my best. She never got impatient and she was also willing to repeat herself, a hundred times if necessary for me, so... read more

Tutoring may be boring at times, but with children, it is essential to make the process fun. Most importantly, the child needs to be engaged in learning and understand what is going on. Without this, tutoring is pointless.   The first tip in tutoring is to not be so serious. The tutor needs to present themselves as friendly, making the child feel comfortable. You may want to... read more

I enjoy after school tutoring, and love helping growing young people. Students spend approximately two hours a day under my supervision.  One recommendation I have is for the students to bring a snack. This is especially helpful for teens who are coming in right after school.  It is harder for the student to focus if he or she is hungry.  Giving the freedom to eat a little something... read more

I have been with WyzAnt for a little over a year and I have to appreciate the organization. The administrative staff is competent and I have enjoyed my experience thus far.   In the period I have been tutoring, I have come to appreciate that we are all part of a greater calling. The tutors, the students, the parents, the teachers and every person/piece/detail working together to build... read more

I am pretty OCD about how I do things as a tutor. This includes being prepared. This also has got me thinking about what it means to be prepared as a tutor. I believe it involves two things. Those are being prepared physically by having the tools you need, and also knowing what you will cover in each lesson.   I started the concept of a tutoring bag about a year ago. I LOVE IT. It... read more

Typically, I don't follow a set of rules when I go to tutoring; I work based on what the students needs are.  But here are a few things that I have noticed have improved my comfort level with new students and their and heir families comfort level with me.   1.  Find out what activities your student is interested in outside of the subject you're tutoring in.  The parent... read more
