I have an M.S. in computational organic chemistry from Oregon State University and I’m an alumnus of UMass Amherst. I’m a published author with over six years of teaching and tutoring experience. Organic chemistry is unique in the way that first principles build on each other throughout the course. I am an expert at breaking chemistry down into fundamental concepts so that students I work with can spend less time memorizing, and more time understanding. Nobody can make organic chemistry “easy” or provide a magic bullet to get you an “A” but I can equip you with the tools to make it possible. I’ve helped hundreds of students over the years. Here are a couple of nice things people have written about me:
Professional associations for English instructors offer webinars, correspondence courses, one-day seminars, symposiums and other continuing education platforms to help teachers advance their knowledge of English literature and writing subjects, improve teaching skills and broaden their scope of educational best practices. These are terrific opportunities to enhance one’s understanding of English language arts concepts while meeting like-minded professionals and improving a resume, LinkedIn page or other professional social media profile.
At Varsity Tutors, we're committed to connecting you to top tutors capable of delivering an outstanding experience. That's why we provide a comprehensive satisfaction guarantee.

How to Get It: Check out K12 (K12.com) and Connections Academy (ConnectionsAcademy.com). Both organizations offer various benefits — including health insurance, retirement savings accounts and paid time off — depending on where you live. As in any job where you work with kids, there will be a background and reference check as well as interviews. You may also need to be licensed to teach in the state where the students reside.
The English teacher’s role in schools is to effectively teach the correct usage of the English language in speaking and writing and to help students develop creative composition skills in reading and literature classes. The teacher should be attuned to the learning progress of students, especially to non-native English speakers, and be able to use alternative teaching strategies when necessary. In addition to classroom management tasks, English teachers interact with other faculty during staff meetings and professional development activities. Many teachers of English also participate in student tutoring and may advise extracurricular student clubs.
Well-fed freelance writers stay out of “content farms” and bidding sites, where you compete with hundreds of other writers for the same projects and get the gig if you under-quote yourself enough. To be a well-fed freelance writer, you need to go out there and market yourself to your target audience – usually, marketing managers – like any other business owner.
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.
Successful tutoring takes time. Just like you wouldn’t expect to learn an entire year’s worth of knowledge in the first few weeks of school, you also can’t expect to raise your grades from a “D” to an “A” after only a few tutoring sessions. It’s important to set realistic expectations before you start so you don’t get discouraged or frustrated along the way.
Be licensed and certified to teach in their state by fulfilling state-mandated requirements, such as passing specific tests and paying applicable fees. For example, elementary school teachers in Michigan are required to pass the Basic Skills Test: MTTC Professional Readiness Requirement (which consists of three parts in Reading, Math and Writing), as well as the Elementary Education test and any other corresponding subject-area tests.
Southern New Hampshire University, the fastest-growing nonprofit university in the nation, is committed to academic rigor and student success. Online adjunct faculty provide high-quality academic experiences and support students as they work toward their educational goals. Adjunct faculty members work collaboratively in a supportive academic environment, partnering with student advising and the academic team to ensure that each student has the support, tools and resources they need to be successful.
An online tutor can help alleviate this stress and provide expert knowledge in the subject. They also help your student get the right answers and develop a deep understanding of the optimum techniques and methods needed for solving problems. Plus, even when they aren’t with a tutor, the built-in tutorial videos available through our desktop/tablet tutoring app can answer your student’s questions on the spot.
Though we have thousands of students in China eager to learn from native speakers abroad, we cannot guarantee a specific amount of hours or a particular schedule. Your likelihood of getting bookings is based on the availability you submit and the rapport you develop with students, which is important in generating and then keeping repeat bookings. Though parents may book lessons in advance for several months with one teacher, they may choose to change teachers based on their children’s learning needs and/or chemistry with their teachers.

Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom who hasn’t done any office work in a while or you’re 18 and just started college, you may worry the work-at-home life isn’t for you. Not because you don’t have the time or the temperament. But because you’re worried you don’t have enough experience to land a work-from-home job or, if you do, that the work won’t be easy enough to slip in around a long day with the kids or all your classes.

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.

Just as with live classrooms, you’ll want to know how many students you’ll be teaching, as it will affect the types of lessons and assessments you’ll conduct. For example, short answer or essay tests may be challenging to grade with large classes, but technology can make things like multiple choice exams even easier to grade than in a brick-and-mortar classroom.
There are different ways you can do this. Perhaps the most popular way is by promoting music videos. The revenue can be heavy with videos using popular music. But getting the licensing agreements from the artists is extremely difficult. A better route might be to promote local talent. These can be small artists who are looking to be promoted. If they have good music, and you can create compelling videos around their songs, you can earn a steady income.

It’s important to establish a schedule for the course and have clear expectations, especially in an online classroom where things may feel less formal so that students have an understanding of their responsibilities. It’s a good idea to keep your course in line with your program’s best practices so that you can shape your online teaching according to what has been proven to work.
