I am passionate about student-centred learning. I believe in the intelligence of every person and work with people's strengths. I understand that learning environments are not always set-up to work well for everyone's learning needs.
I am flexible and can adapt my lessons to my students. I believe that knowledge is power. I like to break work down and do it in steps - I believe this is the best way to learn and remember.
I'm a firm believer that people learn through encouragement and practical guidence. My desire is to help students develop critical, unique, and creative approaches to their research and writing. Study shouldn't feel like a chore and even the driest topic can be made interesting with the right approach.
My strategy will always be different for every student and we will figure out what works in our first meeting. My goal, though, is always to make the subject "click" and to think about life after & around school. It is so important to exercise, eat well, get enough sleep, take ownership of technology & social media.
I like to individualise my sessions based on the student and their own learning needs. I have the ability to adapt my teaching method based on the student's learning style (ie. visual, audio, "learn one, do one, teach one" method, etc). I know that some people take longer for certain concepts or themes to click and understand that there is more than one way of teaching a specific topic.
I try to make things as simple as they are. We often over-complicate our tasks and work, and I see it as my job — something I enjoy — to help students to develop basic strategies to get tasks done.
When teaching, my methods are patient, welcoming and encourage students to thoroughly engage with the texts or topic of study. I use a range of study options in terms of developing learning strategies that cater for differing learning styles, such as designing lessons around verbal learning, visual learning, or the inclusion of classroom technology.
My approach to tutoring changes depending on the student I am working with. I acknowledge that not one style works for everyone and so use the first session to work out how the student will respond to different types of teaching methods. Then determine how best to help them learn and get the most out of the session.
I assist students that are struggling with specific aspects or tasks (presentation, speech, essay). The students bring their problem to the table, and we work together to solve the issue. Lessons are usually an hour long, and we use Skype, and email to exchange documents and send annotated copies of work.
I use the 'hamburger' structure to teach essay structure to students and have templates available for essay plans. I use an investigative approach to assist students and use guiding questions to try and allow them to answer their own questions in order to engage higher learning tactics.
The lesson structure for my sessions involve in depth deconstructions and analysis on the texts being studied in the student's class so that we can revise what has already been taught as well as evolving their already formed understanding.
Each lesson would be individually tailored for the student's goals and desired learning outcomes. This might be learning how to write a short story, preparing for an English exam or completing that next comparative essay. Language and level can be modified for both secondary and tertiary students.
My lessons are geared towards the students personal curriculum. I require all students to fill out a form of their performance as well as other information i might need and create lesson plans that target areas students are struggling with. For example, if a student is studying a certain book and required an in depth look at themes and ideas i can do that by explaining the novel.
My teaching method involves helping students to develop an understanding of the essential skills involved in reading and responding to literary and everyday texts. I believe that understanding what is required for success is the first step towards being able to produce the sort of written and oral analysis at senior levels.
My name is Alycen Edwards and I am seeking to support the literacy education and development of school aged students through tutoring. I feel that I can provide an enriching and resolutely supportive atmosphere that will aid students’ established literacy knowledge and comprehension.
I am very passionate about learning and I aim to always create an environment with students that allows them to feel confident and motivated towards the content being learned. Whether they excel at English or not is irrelevant to me, I am only here to support and provoke learning.
I approach my lessons by fundamentally considering the position of my student, his experience and comfort with the subject and my position as a tutor. I tailor my lessons on a timeline - results should be achieved in an appropriate relationship to investment, but ultimately I aim to build a rapport with students to push them to succeed.
I teach using a combination of methods. I prefer to teach by discussion, as I believe learning is a two way street, however some situations call for a more demonstrative or lecture-style approach. I'm open to all questions and ways of learning.
I believe that it is a teacher's duty to foster critical thinking and a passion for learning. In order to do this, the student must be made to engage with the content and be given the power to ask and answer their own questions clearly and effectively.
I am an English tutor for academic and creative writing as well as reading comprehension. My lessons are typically geared towards high school and college aged students. We will first go over what you think your strengths and weaknesses are in the subject, discuss the project at hand, and go over methods to help you succeed long term.
My teaching methodology is full of rewarding excellence in learning so that the student will be encouraged and want to learn as much as possible. I hope to pass on my passion for learning as I found myself interested in all types of subject and keen to pursue everything.
I believe that student should comprehend and enjoy what they are learning and writing. Therefore, in order to begin successfully writing good essays students should start with the formulas that make good points, paragraphs and conclusions. It is increasingly important to observe other essays.
There is no specific way to 'teach' or 'tutor' a student as everyone is different. By learning about the student and establishing their points of strength and weakness, I will be able to give advice, read through practice pieces, give past practice pieces and provide support. As year 12 is so fresh in my mind, I would love to help out a beginning year 12 student.
I base my classes on fundamental skills and focus the lessons towards the needs of the students. I prefer lessons where students actively engage in the skill and show the extent of their knowledge that we can then build on together.
I usually have my classes online where i give the student notes through the emails.i also give my cats after every three weeks then follows the main exam.In some instances i give assignment after every lesson and the student is expected to forward within 48 hours.
My lessons are best suited towards students who are willing to work hard and apply the practices which I teach/enhance. A lesson structure will vary from student to student and will be tailored to suit their personal needs. A course/tutoring structure will be formulated with students during the first session.
I familiarise myself first with their reading material or assignment. I then tend to go over a student's writing and point out the places that need work, for example textual evidence, sentence fluency, vocabulary, or reasoning. Then I help them to come up with alternatives themselves so that I don't directly provide them with answers.
I base my classes on learning to understand and enjoy writing - whether it be academic or creative. Lessons generally focus on solving immediate issues a student may face, as well as working to solve more long term problems. I believe that learning should always be a fun experience, but also that hard work and dedication are required to achieve personal and academic goals.
Up until Year 11, English was my best subject. In Year 11 I received 46% in my first semester exam. However, in Year 12 my best SAC result was 96%! I know the tough road of VCE English and if you would like me to tutor you, I will support you through it all; I know just how hard it is to succeed in the most popular VCE subject.
I enjoy encouraging people to learn and grow in their studies. My lessons are geared towards those who may be struggling with certain topics or tasks, as well as those who wish to extend themselves. Lessons revolve around the needs of the individual and the level they wish to attain in their education.
