Summer Tutor In All Academic Subject Areas With Two Years Experience
Since my junior year, I have been tutoring students in Math (Geometry and Algebra II especially), Writing and Vocabulary, Reading Comprehension, Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, and Physics. I started tutoring partly because I wanted to see how I would like being a teacher in the future. I have to say that the rewarding nature of tutoring when my students finally grasp a concept they've been struggling with or when they finally get the grades they've been working for is really making me consider teaching. I struggled at the beginning of high school, because I was afraid of asking questions. This has led me to be especially attentive to times when it seems like my student doesn't totally grasp something but doesn't want to ask a question. I encourage those I teach to ask not only me, questions, but their teachers or their classmates as well without worrying about what anyone will think of their question. My goal in tutoring isn't just to help students with their current classes and goals, but to try to make learning an enjoyable experience and to try to instill some of what many of my teachers and coaches instilled in me - persistence, curiosity, and enthusiasm.
