My teaching method is based on ensuring students understanding the purpose and specific requirements their unit, course or assessment structure and working from there based on how they can best complete their work. I will work with students using relevant samples (past or current) or their own work, their unit and assessment outlines and, if applicable, samples of my own work.
I base my lessons on what the individual or group needs are. Sessions can range in length up to one hour. Before we meet, you can inform me of the skills that you would like to focus on and I will arrange a lesson plan from there. If you do not want a lesson plan, and need help with homework, writing fabulous papers, or making excellent presentations, we can spend the time working on that.
While many tutors stick to one method of teaching, I formulate my lesson plans around the individual and their distinct strengths and weaknesses. This approach not only put students on the fast track to their desired results but teaches new skills along the way.
I grew up with ADD, undiagnosed, so I had to take what was taught to me and translate it to something I would understand. Nothing came easy to me academically, I had to learn and teach myself. I believe most students in high school need help, not because of intellect, but because someone has not given them the time to know how they think. That is my specialty.
My teaching method is to engage with students, ascertain their interests, and then utilise their engagement with said interest to identify weaknesses that may affect their entry into their chosen field. I then tailor lessons to those interests to engage the student in deeper learning of core subject material as it applies to their chosen career/scholastic path.
Hi! My name is Lauren and I am an American living in Perth, originally from California. I have over 8 years experience as a tutor in SAT, ATAR, STAT and ACT prep, as well as English, Writing, and Biology, with a proven track record of preparing students to bring home high scores.
I have a PhD in Creative Writing from Adelaide University and a BA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University. I have worked in editing and publishing and taught Communication subjects at UniSA for fifteen years. I have tutored privately and given workshops in the community to many different age groups. I like to tailor writing exercises to the needs of the individual.
My teaching methodology is student-centered. I focus on inquiry-based learning where the "I dunno how" is re-generated into a strong, enthusiastic "Whaaat?! That's fascinating!" This approach encourages teachers and students to investigate why well-covered topics are relevant to our personal present.
I take into account the background and interests of learners, tailoring lessons to suit not only the level of the learner, but also make lessons fun and engaging from the start. The best learning happens when students are enjoying the material and it's relevant to today's world, with current issues and topics at the heart of the lesson.
Since 2007, I have worked with a number of undergraduate and postgraduate students, helping them with their procedural and summative assignments, as well as personal statements and research proposals. During these sessions, I have helped students to plan their assignments, structure and develop their arguments, integrate their sources into their work and express themselves clearly and accurately.
I am a PhD from PUC - SP, currently developing a thesis on Medieval History. The classes are intended for all those who want to learn the Latin language from the beginning. The content will always be presented in an expositive and dynamic way, using specific didactic materials, such as the renowned "Reading Latin".
The most important ideas I present to my students on the first day of class is how incredibly difficult good writing is and that I, too, am just a dedicated student trying to master this art form. Essays and stories are not speeches written down, I tell them, and good writing is not the product of some innate, mysterious talent given to the few among us. No. Writing is hard, mindful work.
I teach English composition from a writing about writing model. I teach my students how to identify and study genre conventions so they gain transferrable skills for future writing projects. I provide one on one conferencing with each student on all of their major projects.
Students that come to me for tutoring have specific skills they need to improve. For that reason, I provide an individualized student-centered approach that aims to target areas of improvement and turn them into areas of strength. My goal is to provide students with strategies that will help them maintain their progress long after our lesson.

I am very attentive to detail! I will help you pick apart an essay so that your tone is refined and your grammar is excellent. I prepare weekly writing activities and provide you with engaging practice prompts to perfect your writing.
I am an AP English teacher with 10 years' teaching experience. I design my lessons to be engaging and student-centered. I love to teach and do it with passion. Student success is the ultimate reward and that is my goal each and every day.
My teaching method is to understand what the student is comfortable with but pushing them to be creative when arguing their side. Rhetoric is an important skill to develop early on. I believe in building up the student in confidence and skill.
I believe that the best way to improve one's writing is to write as much as possible. Therefore, I am a strong proponent of frequent free writing. I evaluate writing in terms of higher versus lower order concerns (examples of higher order concerns include structure, content, and clarity, while lower order concerns have more to do with sentence-level issues like grammar and mechanics).
My teaching method is eclectic and focused on the material required for comprehension as well as the skilled delivery needed. I am a student-centered educator owing to the classic work of Carl Rogers--the client/student determines the specific needs to be met and methodology required by faithfully representing how much they know and how much they want to know.
The methods I use for teaching focus on ensuring total success for everyone involved. I look to see the differences in my students as a positive. We all learn differently and it is something we should all embrace! I can give my lessons to any one from Primary level, up to an adult to assist with rhetoric, speech writing and resume/CV building.
I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I am certified in literacy, English, science, and gifted education for all grade levels. In addition to teaching, I also have two years experience as a curriculum developer focusing on AP Literature and AP Language. My lessons are hands-on, engaging, interactive, and purposeful.
I work with students who are preparing for standardized test, such as the ACT and SAT, or who need a tutor for Algebra 1 and 2. I believe in using more than one method to get to the answer, as long as it can be mathematically proven.
I give lessons to students from primary school to college level. My techniques are to provide suggestions and areas of revision for student's papers, instead of simply editing their work. I also provide context and support for literature, but will not read the student's chapters for them.
Associate in Arts from College of the Albemarle - Bachelor of Arts from Campbell University - Some post-graduate experience at UNCW I was a tutor at both COA and CU while I was a student. I was also awarded the "President's List" distinction while at COA and was published in the CU school newspaper and the CU poetry magazine whenever I submitted articles or poems, respectively.
My approach to tutoring focuses on getting tutees to learn in the right way. With any humanities subject, particularly at A-Level, how the facts are assembled is as important as the facts themselves, and looking through the right end of the telescope is crucial to that. I therefore focus on giving students a strong conceptual overview before diving into the details.
I determine your experience and abilities and your goals in learning the classical languages and culture. I am especially interested in having students learn the materials in the manner that suits them best, and I provide support and guidance in this endeavour.
An advocate of mastery-based learning, I am emphatic about teaching to the student — i.e. pacing lessons appropriately, implementing visual and kinesthetic curriculum, and galvanizing the unique talents each student possesses. There is nothing more rewarding than being a part of a student’s confidence grow.
As an educator, I believe that students function best within educational settings when they feel respected, able to express their own individuality, and supported. With these priorities in mind, many of my lessons employ a specific chronological flow. Firstly, I dedicate a prominent amount of instruction time to introducing concepts and/or skill sets.
I will cater each lesson to the student's needs. I pay close attention to their strengths and weaknesses and will use that as the basis of my classes. Though it is important to establish a friendly environment with the students, I will assure them that I am here to help and will do everything in my ability to help them improve.
