Part-Time/After School/Summer Tutor
Hi, my name is Emily, and I am a 19-year-old college sophomore. My variety of experiences with teaching children has shaped my way of interacting with kids as well as how I educate them. Tutoring my younger brother who is diagnosed with ADHD has given me the chance to practice being patient, flexible, and creative in the way that I teach. My hands-on experience in a kindergarten classroom is another experience I have under my belt, and the seemingly endless energy they had forced me to brainstorm new and exciting ways to keep them interested in the activities. I believe that tutoring is about helping the child learn the material but not giving the answers as well as helping a child learn to love learning as much as I do. Honors English, Creative Writing Classes, AP Drawing and Painting, Intro to Ceramics, Basic Photoshop and Basic Video Editing are some completed courses I have taken.
