About this tutor

i'm a sophomore in high school, and i'm experienced in helping my peers understand many subjects (particularly math). i'm at the junior level in most classes as a sophomore, and to be honest, i know what i'm doing. i'm very social and friendly, and that's just a positive :)

i'm willing to help students over the summer (if they're taking online classes or just need to be prepared for the coming year) 

i'm pretty flexible and i show up on time. i do have sports and activities during the school year, so hours may differ. 

i enjoy meeting new people from a bunch of different schools ... sometimes it results in close friendships. i enjoy knowing that i've been able to help someone succeed and grow in the academic life

    She is very kind, helpful, smart, and takes initiative. She helped me get through math and it was good. Totally recommend her, she's also really fun to be around and has a quirky sense of humor.

    She's very helpful. She helped me understand the concepts when my teacher couldn't. She's also very nice and smart.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

i do a little review, and then see what needs to be worked on and go from there. i know how to ease people into things and help them in the long run, even if they hate me in the moment :)


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

i've been tutoring people since i was in fourth grade.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

my standard pricing is $17 an hour, but something can be worked out for less :)


How did you get started teaching?

i've always been sort of an outgoing person, so when i was in elementary, if i knew someone was struggling (with math especially) i would immediately go and help them. teaching is not something that i want to pursue as a career, but i know i'm pretty decent at it. 


What types of students have you worked with?

i've worked mostly with peers. i've always been at an advanced academic level, and i've had many of my peers, even some older than me, come and ask for help. i've also worked with younger kids, as low as kindergarten.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

my brother is six years old and is going into first grade this year, and he's pretty freaking smart. i got on a website and wrote down all the words first graders were supposed to be able to read, write, and spell by the end of the year. there were 143 words, and shane (my brother) only needed help on seven of the words. i'd been working with him for a couple days on sight words particularly, and he was super excited. i thought it was really cute and felt some pride in knowing that i helped him with that.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

just read the q&a, which can help you get a feel for a person. if you want an adult tutor, make sure they're an adult (i say that because i'm 14 :)) just go with your gut, and make sure they're skilled in the subject you're struggling with! best of luck :)


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

they should ask themselves if they've used the resources available to them to understand the subject a little better. or ask themselves whether they just need to put a little more effort into the work. most often if you ask yourself these two questions, you'll come to a realization of whether or not you need a tutor, and what your needs are.
