I am currently a first-year Nursing student and know how hard some subjects can be. I used to struggle when I was in grade school but with the right tutor, I started to succeed. I would love to be able to help other people who might be in the situation I was in. Although I am not "experienced" or haven't been doing this long, I know that I can help you.
I love helping people. Whether it's just giving advice or doing service, helping is something I am passionate about. Tutoring make me happy, because I love kids and again, I love being able to help people.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I first like to get to know the student I am working with and try to get a general feel for why they're struggling and how I might be able to help. I tutor my cousins a lot and their main thing is that they get frustrated when they don't get something quick. I like my students to know that it's okay to struggle, it just means you have to work a little harder.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I don't have much training in the tutoring field. I did tutor kids from within my high school and grade school. I am now in college for Nursing, so Math and science are my things.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I base my system on time and what exactly is needed. For instance, if it is just a general improvement of a subject for 60 minutes I would charge $25. My prices range anywhere from $10-$35.
What types of students have you worked with?
I've helped Pre-K and Kinder students start reading, writing, and learning basic math. I've also helped tutor grade school students in all their core subjects. Lastly, I continue to help tutor my peers in high school with the classes their struggling in.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
A girl going into high school was looking for some math help here and there. I was in the same boat, thinking I wasn't ready for high school or at least didn't feel ready. I reached out and made sure she knew that I was here to help even if she didn't hire me. She ended up just needed help with a few problems and knows that I am here to help with her high school journey! I got a smile out of this because she said I was going to make high school a lot better. This is why I love tutoring.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
It isn't necessarily who has the cheapest rate or who has the most degrees. When hiring someone, choose someone you think you would work well with and someone who you think you could form a bond with. Once a bond is formed, it is easier to ask for help and makes the process so much more fun!
