Although there will often be a curriculum or a theme in place, there is still a lot of room for creativity. Students, especially children learn quickly when immersed in a language and they benefit from fun and informal activities such as songs, movement games and creative exercises . Hence your daily work will never get boring! These are some of the tasks and responsibilities you can expect when you work and teach English abroad:
I am currently a pre-medical student at the BA/MD program at Brooklyn College where I am on the Biology, B.S., and Chemistry B.A. track. I have been tutoring on and off for about 6 years now, and have experience in elementary math, algebra 1/2, trigonometry, calculus, etc.Not only have I been a private tutor, but I have also been a tutor for General Chemistry at Brooklyn College, therefore acquiring techniques that I find to be effective when teaching my students. In fact, I have moved students from the B/C range, up to an A. Having been a student of science and the liberal-arts field, I feel that my approach to subjects is versatile ... View Profile
University English professors must hold a PhD in English and in rare cases, may possess a PhD in a related field, such as comparative literature. Qualified candidates have typically completed several years of graduate-level coursework in literature, completed one or more field exams in an area of specialization (such as renaissance poetry, medieval literature, or the 19th-century American novel), and have written a dissertation on a topic related to their area of specialization.
I just wanted to let you know that I have been hired by Maritz (Thank you Annie) and working with them for almost 30 days now (perfect attendance gets you a $.25 raise after 30 days too). The company has us calling customers from different businesses (banks, insurance co. etc..) and asking them to please complete a survey of how their customer service experience was between 1 (poor) and 10 (excellent). They pay you the minimum wage of your state weekly by direct deposit and pay on time. The staff is great and helpful and they make the job easy and enjoyable. Thanks again Annie and bless you for all your great and helpful information that you share with us.
As much as it pains me to write this, my advice is to find a different career. It's not that being a professor is so bad--there are many good things about the job, including a certain amount of flexibility of schedule and the experience of going to work and learning alongside colleagues and students each day--but the job market is just. so. bad. Odds are that you will labor for 6 years to obtain a PhD in English, all the while earning very little money and going into debt, and when you graduate you will be unable to get a tenure-line job--even if you are a gifted teacher, even if you are a talented writer, even if you are a superstar. If you do get a tenure-line job you will find yourself working long hours but earning far less money than do others with advanced degrees, and you will find that the realities of the profession are out of line with what you imagine the profession to be. I once believed that I would have the leisure to think and to write--that's what professors do, right? Not so much. When I was much younger I even imagined that I would spend some time each day sitting under a tree and reading a book. I'm serious! I thought that. My life bears zero resemblance to the fantasy. The ground under the trees is always a little wet, and there's too much of a glare on my laptop to work outside.

“Robin was extremely concerned with student learning and wanted to make sure that we understood what she was going over. She also made sure to point out things that could possibly trick us so that we could pay particular attention to them. She reiterated what was said in class and worked out examples so that we could apply it to our practice problems and exam questions.” – Rachel F., UCLA
Every service is different, but most follow the same basic model. Once you’ve registered, you simply select the topic and grade level you need help with, and the system will give you a list of qualified tutors. From there, you can view a detailed profile of each, send an introductory email, submit a question, or schedule a future session. If you’re using an on-demand service, the system will automatically pair you with an available qualified tutor and drop you right into a live session.
An online tutoring service might not be right for every student. If you think your child would benefit more from a private, in-home tutor, there are a lot of great options. During our research, we found some resources that we thought were really beneficial. We highly recommend checking out Varsity Tutors and Care.com. They both have search filters that can help you find experienced teachers living in your area who specialize in your student’s disability. You can also inquire with your state’s department of education – most have a list private agencies that offer tutoring services for students with disabilities.

Linda Sinclair (Julianne Moore) is a high school English teacher in the small town of Kingston, Pennsylvania. She is passionate about her subject and popular with her students, but lives alone in simple circumstances. Cursed with a hopeless romantic soul, she lives in a world of men unable to match her impossible standards. When her former star pupil Jason Sherwood (Michael Angarano) returns from New York, crushed and insecure after failing to succeed as a playwright, Linda convinces him to produce his play at the school, as the play is far too good to never reach a stage. Jason's overbearing father, Dr. Tom Sherwood (Greg Kinnear), pressures him to attend law school instead, which he finally relents to lest his ulcer be the end of him with no other prospects in sight. Complications arise after Linda and Jason, in a moment of impulsive creative madness, have a sexual encounter on her classroom desk. Various jealousies and rumours ensue, affecting her and everyone around her including the production of Jason's play. When the school heads are confronted with proof of her indiscretion with a former student, Linda is fired on the spot. Embarrassed and in erratic egress from the situation, Linda storms off, gets into a minor car collision, and ends up at an A&E where she's attended to by no other than Dr. Tom Sherwood. When she is moved by his gracious manner after having been mean to him on a previous occasion, she guiltily admits to having had sex with his son.

While most K-12 teachers hold a bachelor’s degree, about 12% hold a master’s degree or other postgraduate degree or certificate.4 Holding a higher-level degree in English, literature, or a related subject may help prospective English teachers become more competitive in the job market. As the majority of post-secondary teachers of English hold a master’s or doctoral degree, pursuing an advanced degree can also open up further job opportunities.
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.

I have 10 years teaching experience in chemistry, physics and Math and I really enjoy to teach and I would be happy to help student to understand their course deeply.
You will love and hate it. One year, you will discuss literature with students (maybe five) who cannot get enough of it. The next year you may be bogged down in capitalization rules and the basics of writing. Take small bites. Ramp up to bigger things in logical steps. Think and work smarter, not harder. Embrace reading struggling writers' essays. Enjoy teaching poetry. Love knowing you are laying a foundation for students that they will build upon for the rest of their lives. It makes it worthwhile. My first year of teaching, I was determined to get them to remember and use behoove. 12 years later when students see me, it is the first thing out of their mouths. That's being an English teacher, being as memorable as the language itself.
Both my sons, Josiah and Jeremiah, have been taking math tutor with Growing Stars for about three years. I can attest that they both got “A” scores with all their math classes. In fact, my oldest son enjoys his math so much that now he got admitted in Accounting at San Jose State University. What I like about Growing Stars is that it works with the school book that the student is using, and it tutors exactly where is needed, so there is not waste of time. It emphasizes in developing the understanding of the material that the tutor is working with the student. Tutors are expert in their subject, easy to understand, flexible, and kind with their students. There is not a sense of pressure. I am well pleased with Growing Stars service, and we will continue to use it.

You will still need to master several bits of technology, and for those of us who are completely challenged in this area, most of this is somewhat intimidating. One thing I didn't care for at all was the hard sell for his online classes that will teach you all you must know to be successful in your endeavors, and it came at the end of every single section. Too IM-my for me although he knows what he's talking about, I think.
Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read about me. My name is Anna-Maria Trimboli but my studnets call me Ms. T. A few years ago I left the corpoate retail world to become a science and math teacher. I found my desire to teach after voluntieering in my daughter's classroom and made the career change in my late 20's. Since then I have taught mostly middle school science and middle school math. And during the summer I teach highschool biology. The majority of my teaching career has been spent in a behavior/ consequnce school setting. With having smaller classroom sizes I have been able to ensure that I can provide the studnents with the ... View Profile
