"Experienced Math Tutor "
Are you looking for an experienced tutor to help improve your son's or daughter's math knowledge and performance? I would love the opportunity to help. I have taught in both large and small public school districts as well as a charter school. Unlike most teachers, I helped my students on Saturday mornings for several hours.

"Elementary Teacher/Reading Specialist Certified k-12"

My 7 1/2 year old son was very nervous and wanted nothing to do with a tutoring session. He is high functioning autistic and doesn't transition well or like new things. It usually takes two or three sessions to get him used to a new teacher. He was hiding in the living room, but I knew he was safe with Ann. So after a few minutes I went upstairs and left him and Ann alone to figure things out. Ann patiently waited for him to come to her, and within about five minutes I could hear from upstairs, the two of them laughing and having fun together. Afterwards my son told me, "Mom that was fun, and you know what? Ms. Ann is going to come back again!" I'm so relieved to have someone with the patience and understanding to work with my son. She is going to work out great.

The most effective instruction is research based. I have been trained in the Orton-Gillingham Approach of teaching reading. It is a systematic and explicit teaching of reading skills. Through multisensory techniques, ... ... More
"Tutoring in statistics, SPSS, American history, and all writing"
I completed a PhD in Adult Education and I teach adults both on-site and online environments. I have instructed many of them to organize their readings, how to take notes, and how to read required reading in order to understand the authors point of view. I have also provided students instruction for outlining papers, mind mapping projects, and setting milestones for research studies. ... More

"Looking for tutoring positions throughout the summer"
I am a mom of 1 (with another on the way!) And looking for a tutoring position for the summer. I have two years of teaching experience and have briefly tutored two elementary students in the past, both in reading/literacy. My favorite part about teaching is the opportunities I have been working with students one on one, determining what they need to grow in skills as well as their confidence as a learner.
Through my academic courses as well as on the job experiences, I have worked to indi... ... More
"Math, Science, Engineering, and Music"
With a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, I have mastered a variety of math and science subjects, and I enjoy helping others grasp those same concepts. Through teaching large college classes, tutoring one-on-one, and grading assignments, I have learned to look at problems and concepts from many different angles. This skill allows me to teach you the way you learn--whatever those learning styles may be.
Much of teaching involves answering the question, â€œwhy?â€: why does one approach work, while ... ... More
