I have been passionate about tutoring since I was in high school. I love the way tutoring allows students to receive an individualized educational experience, and it is always great to watch the students I tutor grow. This year, I spending an AmeriCorps year working as a full time tutor at a low income school in Newark. This has been such a rewarding experience, especially as in the first trimester, three of my students ended up making honor roll, a big jump from their grades during progress report season, where all had at least one C and two were failing Math class.
My success as a tutor comes from my creativity in creating interesting lesson plans and delivering material in different ways so it can be accessible to any type of learner. I also have high expectations for all of my students, but at the same time, I am very patient with students who are struggling to understand lessons. I am motivated by a sincere belief that every student can be successful with the right support.
