Hi, thank you for viewing my profile! As I return home from college this winter break (12/18-1/18), I would love to take on a tutoring job. I am a sophomore at Cornell University, majoring in Biology, passionate about helping others. In college, I have been volunteering at a weekly program to mentor a child from the local trailer parks through activities such as performing science experiments together. In high school, I volunteered to work with special needs children to improve their motor, educational, and social skills through activities such as reading, music, and outdoor play. I tutored my peers learning Mandarin for three years, and served as the Chinese Honor Society president my senior year. I've always found joy and fulfillment in building relationships with children, encourage and guide them as they grow, and learn from them, too. I've learned that a good tutor is patient, prepared, diligent, humble, and perceptive about the tutee's learning style.
