UCF Master's Degree with 15+ years of tutoring experience

Education has always been a big part of my life. In grade school, my teachers would often ask me to work with other students in class who needed assistance with the current lesson. This gift of being able to help others resonated with me and I realized very quickly that everyone does not learn in the same way. In high school, I volunteered with students with special needs and discovered there are many ways to communicate and teach. At San ... See more

Educator Extraordinaire

The at-home-classroom is where not only formal education begins, but the love of learning is formed. Every child has the right to be taught in a way in which they are afforded the opportunity to observe and interact with core subjects. Students should be engaged during the lesson that they will be inspired further investigations and explorations into the content.

As an educator to young scholars I find it important to emphasize passion, determination, empathy and kindness in ... See more

I especially enjoy working with students who either need new ways to learn a topic or have gaps in their knowledge on a topic. For example, most of my math tutoring has been helping students get caught up on their math up through pre-algebra. I enjoy finding ways to make a topic understandable ... See more

Why You Need a Vocabulary Tutor

Vocabulary or the body of words used in a particular language is important now and will be in the future. Because of this, it is vital to develop a strong vocabulary that can be used in all different situations. Whatever the reason may be for your vocabulary needs, a language tutor can get you up to speed. A need for a good vocabulary tutor doesn’t just stop when you finish school, you will want to take these skills with you to several other opportunities you will get in life. These occasions arise when you’re applying for new jobs, working at professional places, being impressionable at social events or meeting new people. Having a strong vocabulary will help you in so many different ways and can literally always be built on.

No matter what level of school your child is in, vocabulary is an important aspect of their education. There are always going to be new words that must be learned, and it is arguably more important for them to learn early on than it is later on in life. When your child is in primary school, they are going to be learning all types of words that are important to how they interact later on in life. It is known that most public reading materials are written at a sixth grade reading level, so your child is going to need to pick up on all of this vocabulary in order to be at the national average. Although important, it is not always easy and some children struggling with picking up new vocabulary words. If this is your child you have probably begun your quest to find a vocabulary tutor. When your child is able to sit down with vocabulary tutoring they are getting the opportunity to really dive into the material. There are several challenging aspects to learning vocabulary from pronunciation to spelling. Our tutors will be there to assist your child every step of the way so that they struggle as little as possible.

Many students have issues with vocabulary words so this should come as no surprise, but that does not mean they should just give up. Your child has the ability within them they just need a private vocabulary tutor to help unleash these abilities. When they work with one of our tutors this is exactly what they will be getting. High school is a challenging time as is, there are so many more things that are taking the attention of your student. There are extracurricular activities and the balance of several other challenging classes. In order for them to be able to get the most out of their high school experience, it is important to slow down and take a deep breath. Everything goes so fast that it is easy to lose track of things. I remember being in high school and having to take vocabulary quizzes weekly when I was in high school and I often just did enough to get by. Because of that I regret not learning all of those important words that would have helped me tremendously. Had I sought the assistance and said to myself that “I need a vocabulary tutor” I would not have missed this opportunity.

If you are noticing things are getting too hectic in your child’s life, it is time for you and your student to take control of the situation. The best way to do this is to sit down with a vocabulary tutor who will make sure that your child is getting the most out of their lessons. The worst thing that can happen is for them to walk away from these classes and not have retained any of what they have learned. This will be counterproductive and end up hurting them in the long run. Geometry might not be something that they will ever have to touch again after they pass their class, however, their vocabulary will be used literally every day. Set them up to be the best possible students and well-rounded people with one of our talented tutors. Excelling with vocabulary will also help expand their memory and give them test-taking skills that are transferable throughout their educational career. As a parent, this is not something that you can pass up for your child, and one day they will thank you for teaming them up with one of our professional tutors.

Benefits of Hiring a Vocabulary Tutor

Hiring a vocabulary tutor can put your student at a major advantage. As they get older there will be times when they are judged solely on their use of words and their ability to use them effectively. For example, when they start applying for jobs and going through an interview process it is important that they always make sure that their vocabulary is up to par. With a one-on-one vocabulary tutor, you will learn to improve your writing and speech with immaculate vocabulary. HeyTutor offers a wide variety of tutors near you. Simply search for a "vocabulary tutor near me" or "vocabulary tutoring near me"  and you will see our tutors who work with elementary children, high schoolers, college students, and even second language learners. First impressions are everything and you don’t want to miss out on opportunities because you couldn’t express yourself in a more efficient manner.

Learning new vocabulary words is always a bit of a challenge. You have to remember the word, how to say it, how to spell it and what it means. Not everyone is going to be good at this, and no matter how great you are with words you will have to study. For most children, the main problem that they face is their ability to study this type of information. There is not one right or wrong way to do this, and often the teachers suggest a way for this to be done. But that does not mean that this way is best for your student. They are going to need to use their own unique way to get to a confident level and be able to know these words.  A great thing about working with one of our study skills tutors at HeyTutor is that they have extensive backgrounds dealing with students who have these same types of problems. Having said that, this does not mean that they are only going to use one singular way to teach all students. They know that your student has their own style of learning and they are going to do everything possible to bring this to the light. This will be fantastic to help your child learn this information and then remember it. But it will also help your child with studying later on. They will be able to use tools that have been giving to them by their teacher to help them in several other classes to come. This is a fantastic opportunity that your child is absolutely going to need in order to reach the level of success that you know is within them. But at the same time, they will be increasing their vocabulary which will help them for years to come.

English is one of the most difficult languages for non-native speakers to learn. This is mainly because of the vast vocabulary and words that sound the same but mean different things. If you are running across this problem, you know the benefits of having a vocabulary tutor by your side. They will be able to help you really learn the vocabulary and all of the nuances. Our tutors have years of experience, as noted, but we also have a large pool of proficient professionals. So we might be able to link you with someone who is also fluent in your native tongue so that they can give you comparisons that will be highly beneficial. This way you will be able to pick up on the confusing vocabulary and truly be able to use it so that your English comes across in a flawless manner. As mentioned, it is never too late to pick up more vocabulary. So if you want to learn new words for a job or just for fun, you need to work with one of our tutors. They will be able to assist you in ways that truly help you learn new words so that you can use them for whatever your purpose may be. Maybe you want to be a writer but never felt that you had the vocabulary to take it on as a career choice.

If you really want to gain more terminology that you can use in all different types of situations then we have the assistance that you are seeking. All you need to do is reach out to your team of talented reps and they will do the major legwork for you. Working with one of our vocabulary tutors will really help you add onto your lexicon and be an even better speaker and writer. Contact us today with your availability, tutoring needs, and preferences.
