...It is important to be able to understand the part of speech and usage of each individual word in a sentence. I find diagramming to be the best way to analyze and understand sentence structure, by adding a visual element to it and providing a clear way of organizing all the elements of a sentence. Diagramming isn't all there is to English, though.

...I also taught students various ways to study for tests/quizzes such as making a review test with notes, using flashcards for vocabulary, and acronyms to help remember important terminology. I have assisted students in elementary grades to high school with study skills. I played soccer in high school for all 4 years.

...Teaching spelling meaningfully, in context, and using word study strategies are primary techniques I use in the classroom. I have tutored children in reading, writing, and math for many grade levels including lower elementary and college. These jobs have required finding the best matched strategies to help students build strong basic skills in each area.

I have been tutoring both high school and college students in physics for three years. My tutoring experience began as the President of the local chapter of the Society of Physics Students. In this position, my fellow students and I offered our physics knowledge to the West Chester University students enrolled in the conceptual, algebra based, and calculus based physics classes.
