I enjoy tutoring because I know how it is to run into problems while learning new lessons and I have a knack of finding alternative ways to look at something because sometimes teachers aren't so good at varying their teaching techniques and different students learn better different ways and I can manipulate lessons to be better for the specific student.
I have worked with children ages 6-17 and for the past almost 3 years (since I started college) I worked at Project: Vision which is a a nonprofit tutoring center for students in 6-12 grade and I have put in 4 hours a day working with various students. All the students had varying strengths and weaknesses but I was able to find a way to get to them in the allotted time and I to find a way to handle more than one student at a time.
HobbiesI have a son who was born on Pi day (3/14/15) and he's the reason I'm in between years in school but he's the best thing to happen to me.
I have had my ups and downs academically, not so much in knowledge but more in drive. I was a student athlete for many years so I know the difficulty of balancing extracurricular activities and academics but it's possible. I am encouraging and through my own education, I was able to find out how to be successful in learning and what it takes.
