Tips for Finding the Best Tutoring Services for Your Youngsters

Tips for Finding the Best Tutoring Services for Your Youngsters

Whether you are the parent of one child or a whole brood, it is important that you ensure your youngsters have the best educational opportunities possible for them to have a bright and prosperous future. While teachers and their assistants provide lots of guidance in this area, they are not always capable of meeting the needs of every child in their classroom. Different styles of teaching and learning, coupled with complicated subject matter can make it difficult for kids to grasp certain concepts.

When that happens, you need to find the best tutoring services quickly to help your kids get back on track and stay there. However, many parents today are challenged regarding the best ways to go about finding academic tutors for their young. In fact, you are probably in that boat right now, reading this article. If that is the case, take heart! You are not alone, and there are answers for your questions about determining the best tutoring services for your child.

For some kids, learning from another person in face to face interactions is the best way for them to learn. Others prefer to watch video instruction or gain the knowledge needed via online resources. Neither is right nor wrong. Your child is a unique individual who needs to be taught in the way that they best learn.

In addition to the how budgetary concerns are another issue that parents face. Virtually all tutors cost money. However, this is an investment in the future of your kids. When viewed that way, switch from steak dinners out at your favorite restaurant for a while and make a pot of potato soup at home until you can get the kids back on track. Of course, that is an extreme example, but you get the point!

You can ask the school and other parents for recommendations for tutors. In many school systems, they already know the people in the community who offer tutoring services, as well as their reputations and abilities. You are likely to find at least one fabulous match for your kids.

The web has some excellent options, including those where you only pay as the child needs to use the service. This can be an ideal option for those with limited budgets. On the other hand, there are sites that allow you to pay a flat fee and your kids can use them as much as necessary to gain the skills needed for academic success.

When it comes finding the best tutoring services for your child, don’t be afraid to change it up if you feel your kid’s needs aren’t being met. An excellent tutor will recognize when the relationship is not working and might even suggest someone who is more suited to the learning style of your kid. Stay on top of their academic studies, and it will pay off in the end for you and for your children as they develop their skills!

A guide to tutorial services

A guide to tutorial services

tutorial services

Perhaps the most misguided belief about tutoring services available to college students today is the idea that tutoring is only needed when a pupil is falling behind or failing a subject. On the contrary, obtaining a tutor, or using your college’s various tutoring services, is a great way for students of all degrees, disciplines, academic years and levels of study to excel in their academic work.

According to the Statistics in Belief article, Students Use of Tutorial Services (2009), “tutoring has a history as a toll to improve students’ academic achievement in the United States.” Tutoring is a means by which all pupils can ensure they are making the most of their college experience. By doing so, graduates are able to apply all they’ve learned into a rewarding and successful after college experience.

The Purpose of Tutoring

COVID and students: The U.S. needs a national tutoring program | Fortune

Tutoring services play a key role in the overall success of any college or university, not just the overall success of the students being tutored. The mission for any tutoring service is to ensure academic excellence for the whole of the student body by providing a place, assistance, group of people, and/or the right resources to encourage pupils to seek help when and where the need it.

Tutoring is not a replacement for what can be learned in the classroom or from a professor or teacher. However, it is a strong resource for learning that works closely with and alongside what happens in the classroom and in home study.

Tutoring is meant to aid a pupil through a subject, assignment or area of study that seems difficult otherwise. It is meant to be a comfortable alternative for receiving additional help from a professional teacher. Sometimes students feel intimidated by their professors and are unlikely or unwilling to ask them for help. Since talking to your professor can feel difficult, tutoring services offer an alternative, although not a replacement, when students need additional help with any subject matter.

Forms and Types of Tutoring Services

Tutoring Tips: How to Market Your Tutoring Services | ULearning

According to the California Research Bureau there are four main types of tutorial services offered at the collegiate level (Academic Tutoring and Mentoring: A Literature Review).

They are:

  • Surrogate Teaching
  • Proctoring or peer-to-peer tutoring
  • Co-tutoring
  • Teacherless groups

Let’s talk about each.

Surrogate teaching happens when students delegate teaching to other students. Often times this is done in graduate programs with graduate or Ph.D. students teaching classes of undergrads or their peers. An example would be if a graduate student of American literature teaches an introductory course to other graduates in the same program.

Proctoring happens when pupils engage in one-to-one tutoring from peers who are at a similar or lower level than they are. This is often called peer-to-peer tutoring and is one of the most commonly seen form of tutoring in universities across the United States.

THE GOAL OF PEER-TO-PEER TUTORING IS TO MASTER ANY PARTICULAR AREA OF STUDY FOR BOTH THE TUTOR AND THE GROUP OF PUPILS. THIS CAN BE SEEN WHEN A STUDENT IS SELF-PACED, USING GUIDES, BOOKS AND LECTURES ONLY CALLING ON THE PROCTOR TO STEP IN WHEN NECESSARY.

Co-tutoring is similar to proctoring, but it is a bit more informal. Where as a proctor is elected to take on the role of the tutor to help one particular student, co-tutoring involves two pupils who work together to tutor each other in a shared discipline or area of study. Sometimes co-tutoring can be formalized by an institution or university, and tutoring services will place students with others seeking the same type of help. This successful branch of tutoring allows students to encourage each other rather than one tutor or proctor lead another student in his or her learning.

Teacherless groups are considered a variation on tutoring because it involves peer-led discussions in the absence of a professor, guide or teacher. In this way, the students essentially teach themselves by challenging each other and moving at a pace that suits the group. Often times teachers will assign work to the groups, but the peers themselves carry out the learning and teaching for each assignment on their own.

Tutoring services can range from peer-to-peer help with particular assignments like research papers or presentations to help in a certain subject, and even to formal offices or campus centers like a writing center that offers a particular kind of tutoring service. Many campuses also offer research and library services within their libraries and focused tutoring centers within varying degree programs such as computer labs, math reviews, and science centers to name a few.

The services you seek out may be one-time help or a reoccurring block of appointments to help you through a subject, project or class. Most tutoring centers have office hours, allow for consultations so you can find the right kind of tutoring help, and are flexible in how and when you receive your tutoring services. If you have any special requests, such as a learning disability, special concerns or mental health challenges, or if you are an ESL student, be sure to inform your tutoring department at the onset of your sessions so they can better serve you and your needs.

Fleeting moments: Responses to Transference and Common Thread

Fleeting moments: Responses to Transference and Common Thread

Robyn Campbell, Blaze, 2020. Photo: courtesy of the artist.

Julie Bartholomew writes about two exhibitions that reveal the mysteries of making.

Transference: Works by Jo Victoria and Robyn Campbell

Integrating glass and porcelain is a passionate focus of my art practice, so writing about two artists who are exploring these exquisite materials, each requiring challenging processes of making, is an exciting task. However, discussing art objects that I have not experienced in ‘real’ life and time is unfamiliar, although 2020 is a year for unparalleled experiences. The art world must move forward by expanding its virtual engagement so artists, writers, galleries and their audiences remain connected, enabling forms of physical distancing to reboot our lives. Fortunately, I have walked around, touched and engaged with Jo Victoria and Robyn Campbell’s earlier work during exhibitions and studio visits. Memories of haptic body and object interactions—gliding fingers across clay surfaces and soaking up the three dimensionalities of an object whilst sharing the same space – seem more crucial now than ever before.

The exhibition titled Transference—the action of transferring something—encapsulates Victoria and Campbell’s shared enthusiasm for light in action. Both artists engage with porcelain and glass forms to activate reflections, shadows, glints, shimmers, flickers and transience. Within bodies of porcelain, light animates a soft white translucency, and in bodies of kiln cast and slumped glass, light radiates a crystal-like transparency.

As demonstrated by the artists’earlier work, form is realised in very distinct ways. Victoria deconstructs the solidity of form by allowing light to pierce through fragmented or perforated slip-cast segments and organic burn-outs. Campbell reinforces shape and form by attaining a continuity of surface across planes of porcelain, glass and enclosed structures. For Campbell, this approach encourages reflected light to transit smoothly and quietly across open vessels and enclosed objects that are nestled within.

Sharing an enthusiasm for the natural environment, Victoria’s porcelain forms echo the fragility of disintegrating organic matter or fractured shells found at the edge of oceans. Reflective high gloss glazes and aquamarine kiln slumped glass capture the transitory and fleeting ocean light that is so fundamental to her practice.

Campbell’s glass and porcelain pieces reconfigure patterns and shapes experienced during nature walks, as essential and simple material manifestations. The interplay between open and enclosed organic forms, intensified by fleeting light and shadow, transmits a visual narrative that speaks to protection, shelter, containment, calmness and tranquillity. Pool and Echoin particular visualises the interrelated natural world in a refined and sensuous manner.

Transference is an exhibition that foregrounds the capacity of light to activate inanimate clay and glass forms and suggests the beauty and transience of the natural world. This show presents a collection of stunning pieces and given the opportunity, audiences would marvel at their beauty, strength, vulnerability and obvious dedication to craftmanship. On the other hand, Transference may also allude to the act of sharing material knowledge, skills and different responses to the world of nature. Trained as a glass artist, Robyn Campbell suggests the quiet beauty of landscapes with the interplay of light and relational porcelain and glass forms. Trained as a ceramics artist, Jo Victoria captures and reflects light through the fragility of porcelain and glass forms to advocate for the transcendence of seascapes. Transference is the end result of a collaborative narrative between the artists that encapsulates a passion for porcelain, glass, light and the natural world that they occupy.

A Common Thread: Works by Harriet McKay and Sam Gold

Sam Gold, Stillness (Votive vessels series), 2020. Photo: samRoberts

Touch and haptic are fundamental aspects of material and process-oriented art practices. Intimacy between bodies and materials during long periods of repetitive physical engagement engenders artwork that is guided by the procurement of material knowledge and processes that activate relational and often cathartic experiences. Sam Gold and Harriet McKay explore these processes of connectedness, a common thread aligning their distinct approaches to making. 

Gold draws attention to the labour of hands that manipulate threads of clay. Repetitive movements conjoin body, material and mind to form voluminous structures that lay bare the rhythms of making. McKay’s intensive processes of layering threads of naturally dyed felt, calico and raw canvas, form rich and worn textured surfaces. McKay’s fibrous collages disclose the reiterative hand and material interplay. 

Time is fundamental to Gold and McKay’s individual practices because both artists embrace repetitive crafting, as does Adelaide textile artist Sera Waters who refers to her own practice as ‘using time to make time …’ Waters describes a repetitive body and object interaction as opening space for thinking about the world in a different way. Therefore, immersive making may be understood as activating an interconnection between body, material and mind. As philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty argues, all our senses are connected, both body and mind are needed to form experience. 

From the perspective of the viewer, art objects that reveal enduring acts of making can trigger a prolonged moment of consideration. The duration of the making and the artist’s time is often noticeably apparent, and the viewer reciprocates by spending time with the work as its fullness unfolds.  

Gold’s groupings of stoic, bulbous forms emanate a silent strength. The viewer is able to glimpse inside these vessels, through mostly small openings, that provide access to a hidden, mysterious inner space. For Gold, the vessel’s interior holds significance. Her new series ‘takes inspiration from seeds, what emerges from the internal space, what could grow from within…’.   The …

10 Tips for Designing High-Impact Magazines

Magazine Article Characteristics

Make & Print a Magazine - Easy Magazine Creator | Blurb

Authors: Author names may or may not be listed. Many magazine articles are written by magazine editors or staff writers and may not attribute responsibility to individual authors. Those articles that do list authors typically do not give the author qualifications.

Frequency of Publication: Magazines typically publish monthly or more frequently (there are exceptions). Magazines routinely will use specific dates on their issues, such as December 14, 2008, or July 2008.

Use of Everyday Language: Magazine articles are typically written with the average reader in mind, so the language used is easily read and simple to understand.

Use of Illustrations and Photographs: Articles published in magazines frequently are illustrated with drawings or photographs, often in full color. Other publications might also include illustrative materials, but magazines are the most likely types of publications to include them.

Bibliography: Bibliographies are typically not included in magazine articles or, if they are included, are usually fairly brief.

Brevity: Magazine articles tend to be much shorter than articles from journals. An article might be half a page or even a dozen pages, but typically not much longer than a dozen. Pictures are often interspersed throughout the text so the actual text, even for a 12-page article, would amount to far less than a dozen pages.

Subject Focus: Magazines might cover a wide variety of interests or might focus on a particular interest. For example, magazines like Time and Newsweek will cover current events, politics, entertainment, art, music, a wide variety of interests. Articles might take note of research being done in medicine, for example, but they stop short of actually providing the full details of the research being done. Magazines like Car and Driver and Popular Science will focus on specific areas of interest, but the articles that they publish are geared toward the casual reader or to readers with more than a passing interest in a subject, rather than to academics and scholars.

Advertisements: Magazines usually include numerous product advertisements. Advertisements might be for beauty aids, or automobiles, or computers, or just about anything. Some ads might be full pages or even could consist of several pages included as an advertising insert or supplement.

Overall Appearance: Magazines are typically published in full color on glossy or semi-glossy paper. Magazine covers are slick and appealing and often provide highlights of big stories that will draw a reader’s attention.…

DIVERSITY ON MAGAZINE COVERS INCREASED BY A RECORD DOUBLE-DIGIT PERCENTAGE IN 2018

DIVERSITY ON MAGAZINE COVERS INCREASED BY A RECORD DOUBLE-DIGIT PERCENTAGE IN 2018

magazine | Definition, History, & Facts | Britannica

It’s been a long 12 months, and before we kick 2018 to the curb, we’re looking back at all of the most memorable, game-changing fashion and beauty things that went down. Follow along with us as we look back at the year in review.

Every December, we comb through the year’s newsstand to chart how diversity and inclusion have been reflected on the covers of the leading U.S. fashion magazines. Looking back on 2017 last December, we were disappointed to report that diversity on the covers of 10 major titles — Allure, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, Marie Claire, Teen Vogue, Vogue, and W — saw a slight decline as compared to the year before: 48 of 153 covers — 31.4 percent — featured people of color*, a 4 percent dip from the numbers we reported in 2016. 

But in 2016, there was progress to celebrate: Those same publications (substituting Marie Claire for Nylon, as this was prior to the latter’s print closure) saw 52 of 147 covers — 35.4 percent — starring people of color*. In 2015 and 2014, 19.7 and 19.8 percent of covers, respectively, starred people of color*.

So, how would 2018 stack up? Perhaps the September issues — which we don’t normally analyze on their own — were a promising sign, with 54.5 percent of covers featuring people of color*, a 32.3 percent increase from 2017.

Indeed, they were. But before we get into this year’s data, a few notes: For consistency’s sake, we reviewed the covers of nine of the same titles we looked at in 2017, but due to Teen Vogue ceasing print operations, we omitted it altogether. As with previous years, we focused only on domestic fashion magazines, rather than independent or international titles, as well as on newsstand covers, rather than subscriber ones (which may have featured different cover stars). Finally, we’ve included a footnote at the bottom of this article explaining how we’ve categorized “nonwhite*” for the purpose of this story.

Of all the covers we reviewed this year, we found that 62 of 128 covers — 48.4 percent — starred people of color*, a record 17 percent jump from 2017. That’s higher than any increase we’ve seen in the five years we’ve compiled this report; the second highest, from 2015 to 2016, came in at 15.7 percent.

InStyle saw the most diversity this year: TheLaura Brown-led publication featured people of color* on 75.0 percent of its issues.Allure and Glamour (the latter of which announced the folding of its print edition in November) came next, both with nine of its 14 covers — 64.3 percent — starring people of color*. This was closely followed by Cosmopolitan, with six of its 13 — 46.2 percent — and W, with seven of its 16 — 43.8 percent. VogueMarie ClaireElle and Harper’s Bazaar comprised the bottom four, in that order. While Elle and Harper’s Bazaar saw slight increases in their own cover diversity as compared to 2017, Vogue and Marie Claire remained stagnant with 41.7 and 37.5 percent, respectively, in both 2018 and 2017. Meanwhile, InStyle saw the most improvement: In 2017, the publication featured just two nonwhite* covers and this year, upped it to nine. 

In terms of age diversity, Mia Farrow, 73, and Oprah, 64, covered Elle and InStyle, respectively; Angela Basset, 60, fronted both Allure and Elle in November. With size diversity, Glamour and InStyle put non-sample-size women like Melissa McCarthy and Chrissy Metz on their covers. And in regards to LGBTQ+ representation, openly transgender actress Daniela Vega shared W‘s Volume 1 cover with Robert Pattinson.

The magazine industry could clearly do better in those categories, and we would be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge the stunning lack of Asian inclusion across the board — especially considering the landmark success (and incredible, high-fashion costumes) of “Crazy Rich Asians” in the box office and throughout popular culture. (As of September, the movie had grossed $165.7 million, making it the U.S.’s highest-grossing romantic comedy in 10 years.) As Fashionista Tyler McCall questioned in August: “‘Crazy Rich Asians’ is the kind of stunning summer blockbuster — coming out in August — that should land its stars major September covers.” And yet, she asked, where were they? “Fashion media should be tripping over themselves for these ladies!”  

Janelle Monáe, Zoë Kravitz, Camila Cabello, Nicole Kidman and Kendall Jenner racked up the most covers of the year with three each; of the “Instagirls,” Gigi and Bella Hadid walked away with two.

That 2018 saw significant strides being made in diversity while also marking the first year of a number of new editors in media (including Samantha Barry joining and relaunching Glamour) is likely not a coincidence. It’s no secret that the future of print magazines as we know them is, at best, quite precarious. But as these publications continue in the traditional format, we can rest assured knowing that diversity and inclusion appear to be a priority when it comes to selecting cover stars.

Below, review what 2018 looked like on the newsstand, as well as how these nine major U.S. magazines did compared to last year and the year before.

Black Tape For A Blue Girl – These Fleeting Moments (CD Album – Projekt)

Black Tape For A Blue Girl – These Fleeting Moments (CD Album – Projekt)

Genre/Influences: Dark-wave, cinematographic, dream-wave.

Black Tape for a Blue Girl

Background/Info: I realized that this year Black Tape For A Blue Girl celebrates its 30th anniversary. The American formation set and driven by Projekt owner Sam Rosenthal can look back at an impressive discography. We had to wait 3 years for this new work featuring 13 songs and mainly characterized by the ‘return’ of their former singer Oscar Herrera (after an absence of 17 years). The album also features a few guest artists like Brian Viglione (The Dresden Dolls).

Content: This band has always composed a unique sound accomplished by a deeply artistic approach. It’s nearly impossible to define the genre of Black Tape For A Blue Girl and it’s not that different with the new work. “These Fleeting Moments” takes the listener by the hand to travel throughout a beautiful sonic universe made of ambient passages and cinematographic impressions. It’s a kind of dark reverie, was composed of acoustic instruments and electronics. It sometimes moves into a ballad and quickly sounds sad and melancholic again.

Some tracks are driven by mysterious and somewhat Eastern-like atmospheres, like awakening the listener’s imagination. I also noticed somewhat psychedelic-like guitar parts and a few beautiful instrumental passages.

The vocals inject a real charisma to the work while female backing vocals by Dani Herrera creates a delicious ethereal effect and a perfect symbiosis with the male vocals.

+ + +: This album is an invitation to dream away and feels like a sweet caress filled with melancholia. It truly sounds like an artistic creation where electronics and authentic instruments create a delicious and enjoyable harmony. Some cinematographic passages have this magical power to awake your deepest hidden fantasies and I here especially would like to recommend “Please Don’t Go”. I also have to mention the opening cut, which is into pure magic, and the more mysterious “Meditation On The Skeleton”, which is an appropriate title to describe your inner feelings when listening to this work.

– – – : Speaking for myself I would have liked to hear more ethereal passages and especially female heavenly voices, which is totally appropriated to this kind of music.

Conclusion: Black Tape For A Blue Girl is an invitation to a dream featuring images and stories created by your own mind. It’s an intimate experience in sound and once more a beautiful album accomplished by this legendary formation.…

How to Properly Aerate and Seed Your Lawn

How to Properly Aerate and Seed Your Lawn

What is Aeration?

Everyone wants to have a green, healthy, and beautiful lawn. To achieve this, we have to learn how to take care of our gardens. It is important to aerate your lawn. So, what is aeration? Aeration is perforating the soil. These small holes will allow water, air, and nutrients to penetrate and distribute well through the grass on your lawn. Aeration is good for the roots of your grass. It allows them to take a stronger grip on the soil. You need to aerate your lawn regularly for the health of your turf, and as good practice according to Lenard’s Lawn Care Services in Hampton Roads Virginia.

Why is Aeration Done?

The main reason aeration is essential is because of soil compaction. When soil gets compacted, it reduces the natural flow of air, water, and nutrients, preventing the proper growth of grass. This has a significant effect on the health and beauty of your lawn. Aeration is done to break this compaction. If aeration is poor, your laws will struggle with the stress caused by compaction. It will begin to thin out and die. Single aeration can make a massive difference in the health and quality of your lawn.

How Do I Tell If My Lawn Needs Aeration?

You need to aerate your lawn if the following things have happened.

• If your children use your lawn as a playground or people step on it regularly, you will need to aerate your lawn frequently. Human action and pets walking around your lawn leads to compaction

• If your lawn is on a newly built property, you will need to aerate your soil. Construction workers and equipment usually compact garden soil.

• If your lawn dries out quickly, you need to aerate it. There may be excess thatch. To find out, take a shovel, dig out a small patch of your lawn and measure the thickness of thatch. If it is more than half an inch thick, you should aerate it promptly.

How is Aeration Done?

Aeration is appropriately done using aerating equipment. If you own one, you can easily do this yourself. You can rent the equipment from your local lawn and garden store if you don’t own or have one. You can also hire a professional to aerate the soil for you.

There are three types of aerating machines. They vary in size, from small manual versions to large tractor-like and pull-behind models available. Your needs will determine the type and size of machine you use.

These types are:

• Spike aerators which poke a hole down in the soil with a solid spiky tine. Spike aerators have the singular disadvantage of making compaction worse around the holes they bore.

• Slicing aerators cut and slice through the grass and thatch straight into the soil. They leave the soil in the ground but create grooves that allow water air and nutrients to get through without compacting the soil further

• Core/Plug aerators use rows of hollow lines which remove plugs from the ground. These aerators bring plugs to the soil surface and break them down. Depending on the type of machine you use, the plugs will be of different.

To do aeration effectively, you will have to work back and forth just like you would when you mow. Give particular focus to problem areas. Make several passes to ensure that the aeration is thorough. After aeration, you will have to seed the lawn.

Preparing to seed your lawn.

Before you seed, you will have to determine whether the seed you have is right for the soil and current weather conditions. You will also choose a seed that is compatible with your current lawn. If seeding an existing lawn, identify the damaged spots, remove dead grass and loosen the soil. Spread the seed and rake it into the ground then mulch it. Water it as usual.

Seeding a new lawn

If you are planting a new lawn, you will have to remove debris like sticks and stones from your garden. Using a rake, you will then remove clumps of soil from your garden, and bring the soil to a level. You will add compost, topsoil, and fertilizer, then spread the seed evenly across the soil surface. To get the seed into the soil, rake it again. After that, mulch the garden with straw and cover the garden with a seed blanket. Later, water regularly until the lawn grows.
