I am enthusiastic. I love working with people, and I enjoy the topics I am offering to tutor on. Enthusiasm in a teacher is something I have found important in my own learning. I just recently graduated from high school, and the classes I felt the most engaged in were the classes with teachers who were passionate about their lessons. Bringing energy and excitement is important to keep a lesson interesting.
I am also looking to learn through this experience. I want to adapt to the student's learning style. Being able to share knowledge and help others is such a special gift. I would like to give back what I can.
Similar to the answer I gave above, I would have to say: I enjoy the student/tutor relationship. We would both be learning from one another and benefitting from the experience.
Another alluring aspect of tutoring is the creativity involved. It is critical that each lesson is stimulating and thought-provoking. In order to pull this off, a tutor needs to be creative. I love brainstorming new ways to teach lessons.
I was having difficulty with an essay for school, but then I asked Gari for assistance . She helped me rethink the structure along with editing some of my grammar, and I walked away feeling much better about it. She was incredibly supportive and had lots of constructive feedback that she communicated to me in a way that helped me understand why it was good advice. In the end, I got an A on the paper, and I definitely couldn’t have done it without the help I received. It was a 100% productive and pleasant encounter.
I want to get to know my students and their personal learning style. It is important for me to be able to go at the right pace and to meet the student's understanding. Before diving into a lesson, I would like to take the time to talk to the student. My goal in talking would be to get a sense of which topics they struggle with the most and what they are expecting from me. I also want to make sure that they are not only absorbing the information I give them, but also enjoying the time we are spending on that information. Students need to work extra hard on topics that are difficult for them and it is harder to do so when they are not motivated.
I have recently graduated from Georgetown Day High School in Washington, DC. I have taken math up to AP Calculus AB and four years of English at an AP level. I have also taken AP courses in: biology, psychology, and Spanish. I received a 4 on the biology AP exam (the other scores have yet to be anounced).
Outside of class work, I have a passion for music. I have been playing classical piano since I was 5 years old. This has taught me discipline and the value of practicing regularly.
I have worked as a camp counselor (after years of training), so I have experience working with children of all ages. I have also helped people out at school, so I am able to work with peers as well.
