Because an LMS is also used for live sessions, a good learning management system is key to making things easy for the professor, who will need to quickly and clearly share media without too many technical issues. Students, too, will want a simple, reliable system for contributing their own notes, discussion threads, and most importantly, tests and assignments.
Linda Sinclair (Julianne Moore) is a forty-year-old unmarried high school English teacher in the small town of Kingston, Pennsylvania. She shares a small apartment with two Siamese cats and her rich collection of great literature. She maintains no close personal relationships aside from those she has with her favorite authors and stories. Her life is far less complicated than the dramas she devours on the page, and she likes it that way. But Linda's simple life turns an unexpected page when former star pupil Jason Sherwood (Michael Angarano) returns to Kingston after trying to make it as a playwright in New York. Now in his 20s, Jason is on the verge of abandoning art, pressured by his overbearing father, Dr. Tom Sherwood (Greg Kinnear), to face reality and go to law school. Linda can't stand the thought of Jason giving up on his dreams so she decides to mount his play - a dark, angst-ridden, ambitious work - as a Kingston High School production, with flamboyant drama teacher Carl ...

Far more complex than ‘just reading and writing', teaching language arts to students at the elementary level and beyond requires a host of critical analysis skills, a working knowledge of literary themes as they relate to history and current events, and the ability to analyze and teach the mechanics of spoke, written and aural expression and comprehension. The job does vary in scope and depth between English taught at the elementary and secondary levels; you'll find a typical job description below:
Answer: In addition to teaching in US schools, English teachers are in high demand overseas. There are many programs that connect recent English graduates with school districts abroad for beginning teaching experience. English teachers may also find job opportunities in the private sector tutoring and coaching English language learners for multi-national corporations.
I began my journey with the SSC last semester, undergoing Supplemental Instruction for Organic Chemistry I. I started working at the SSC this semester, and I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. I assist in Supplemental Instruction sessions for Biology, and I offer private tutoring for introductory Biology and Chemistry courses. I look forward to seeing you!
Wow! This is a tough one. Honestly, don't do it if you cannot stand kids/young adults. Don't think that a high school class is going to be anything like your LIT 451 class - you know, where all 15 of you sit down with the professor and discuss Frankenstein through a Freudian lens. Don't think that all your kids are going to like reading Jane Eyre because you like it. Know that parents are going to blame you for every horrid grade/missing assignment. Know that when you finally get used to one lesson plan format or standardized test, that the state will change it and you'll have to learn something new. Understand, quickly, that the bad days will probably outweigh the good ones, but that it only takes one student to grow to love reading to make you feel accomplished and appreciated. Understand that students rarely will understand why they have to read classics and why your class is important when they know they want to major in Biology, but that in a few years one of them will send you a letter in the mail thanking you for all you did for them.
A major benefit your student get from chemistry tutoring is having the chance to learn new material before it is taught in class. The class becomes less stressful when they already had a preview of what’s to come. Thus they are able to turn the classroom into a place of review as opposed to picking up what you can in a crowded distracting environment. Your child will go from being the quiet student with questions and confusion rolling around in their brain, to the quick learning student that can now assist their peers. Imagine the confidence boost that you or your student will receive. Not only will they be impressed with themselves, but also their teacher is sure to notice your abilities. Chemistry is a very convoluted subject, but with the right environment, your student will be able to see the subject and its objectives more clearly.
And, given the difficult nature of the sciences, it's not surprising that private tutoring can have a significant and measurable impact on your child's academic performance. Classroom teachers face the nearly impossible task of tailoring instruction to all of the students in the room. If your child is falling behind in that environment, what he or she needs is the personalized attention that his or her teacher likely can't provide.
'Module 7: Engaging and Motivating Students' explores various strategies for engaging and motivating your students in a range of different online learning scenarios. It discusses the important roles that curriculum design, activity structure, the relevance of the chosen technology, and effective time management play in creating an enthusiasm for learning in your students. 'Module 8: Evaluation Strategies' examines the importance of evaluating your online teaching practice to ensure that it is effective, and to give you an opportunity to constantly improve. This is especially important when you are first developing an online teaching practice, or when you are trying something new for the first time. We will explore an evaluation strategy based upon four reflective angles: self reflection, peer observations, student feedback, and theory. The module also introduces the concept of learning analytics as an informative tool to enable up to the minute evaluation of your online class.
My students do well! I am a chemical engineer. I know math and science well. I have tutored students after work for 12 years. I know students well. I work with a student to find the knowledge holes that cause problems. I explain the missing concept and then explain it again from a second angle. I work through the problem with the student and watch him do it again. When we find and correct holes in the student's knowledge base, he is caught up and ready to excel in his class. He often finds that he doesn't need a tutor any more -- not great for my business model, but definitely my goal. ... View Profile
One of the main benefits of online tutoring is the convenience it affords you in scheduling sessions. If not for the flexibility of online learning, most would probably go the traditional route and hire an in-person tutor. We looked for services with one-on-one instruction, scheduled sessions, on-demand sessions, offline help, and 24/7 availability. Those with the most choices scored the highest.
