"Learn how to enjoy a book and get the most out of your reading"
Presently I work as a Reading Specialist with Middle and High School special needs students. My case load consists of students with a variety of disabilities such as Autism, Aspergers, ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia,and emotional difficulties.For my students with ADD/ADHD I am very cognizant that they may need periods of time within each session to move about and that as instruction occurs they may need to manipulate something in their hands or possibly chew gum. I chunk many of my lessons into working on reading and giving student short breaks. I have found many of my students enjoy being read to thus en ... More
"Experienced History and English Teacher"
What I do best is engage students one-on-one or in very small groups. The conscientious student will learn the material, and will learn to think critically about the material. Chances are that we will have a good time doing it. [That's really all I have to say, but the form I'm filling out requires a minimum of 250 words for some unexplained reason (no critical thinking allowed?) so I'm continuing to write, giving you some background and maybe insight into the process I'm going through t... ...

"Math & Chem - Fun with numbers and chemicals - by Scott"
In order to build a strong understanding of any subject there are three things that are needed
a) a reason to learn
b) a willingness to try
c) a good teacher
These 3 things are clearly related. A good teacher helps provide a reason to learn, and willingness to try help makes a good student. In my experience of teaching from kindergarten to professional levels, the best teachers light a trail for the student to walk. I can do that, light a trail in chemistry and mathematics. I understand what... ... More
"Widely experienced, understand difficulty, been there myself!"
I knew from childhood I wanted to be a teacher, but never fit into the system very well. As an "outsider", I have tasted the cultural and educational difficulties students can have. My training was in physical chemistry, which required quite a lot of mathematics, which I loved very much, and yet did not excel in. My approach to math and science has always been philosophical, intuitive, and explanatory, and I believe it benefits me that none of what I learned really came easily to me. I ha... ... More
"Professional published writer will train writers "
I studied theatre as part of my English classes in high school and performed regularly in high school productions, one of which won the Moss Hart Award in October, 1973 (honorable mention) for the play Becket: or the Honour of God (by Jean Anouil) as the lead actor (Becket)in the New England Theater Conference. We trumped three professional troupes!
Subsequently, I went on to college at Salem State (Massachusetts) and continued my studies in a more professional environment.
When living abroad in my career, I earned a side living doing television commercials for products as part of my busine ... More
