I am a senior Accounting and Marketing double major studying at Lehigh University, and I have had experience tutoring at all age and ability levels. During the second semester of my freshman year, I was a peer tutor for Business Calculus in Lehigh's Center for Academic Success. I tutored 12 of my peers in a group setting for 4 hours per week. During my entire sophomore year, I tutored 3rd-5th graders through the community service office for the America Reads/Counts Program. These were students from the local elementary schools in Bethlehem, and I helped them with their homework during after-school hours. Throughout the past two years, I have also done walk-in tutoring for business undergraduates in Introduction to Financial Accounting and Introduction to Managerial Accounting.
As an effective communicator, I translate my knowledge into a form that is easily received and understood by whoever I am tutoring. I am a loyal and mentally-present individual, as I always try to build a solid relationship with whoever I am working with.
I am finishing up my last year of education, and my success is due in large part to my inquisitive mindset and ability to find motivation in whatever I am learning. I enjoy seeing my students improve academically, but what I love even more is being able to help my students become intrinsically motivated about their classes. In my eyes, this is what leads to long-term academic success, and I want to help every individual reach that point!
Vanessa is very personable and is great with students of all ages. She makes the students feel comfortable and excited to learn. Vanessa is a wonderful tutor, and I'd recommend her to anyone!
