What do you enjoy most about tutoring?

The best part about tutoring for me is watching a student's self confidence grow as they begin to organize themselves better and conquer their to do lists. It is such a rewarding feeling and it is something that has a profound impact on their personal, professional and academic lives and interpersonal relationships.

Tell us about a specific time when you helped a student overcome a challenge.

I was working with a student who struggled a lot to advocate for himself and ask for help when he needed it. He was having tremendous difficulty in one of his classes, but was scared to tell the teacher and ask for help. I helped him edit and write an email to the teacher, which allowed him to get the help he needed. Not only did this improve his grade in the class, but it also improved his overall self esteem which will positively impact him for life.

Talk briefly about your tutoring style. How do you like to engage with students?

My tutoring style focuses on three main components: subject mastery, organizational preparedness and improved self confidence. Those three concepts are at the forefront of how I approach every tutoring session, and I also make sure that the student knows that this is their time to get help in the way that works best for them. I also make sure to take a lot of interest in the things that my students are passionate about so that they know I see them for who they are as a person rather than just as a student.

Tell us about your favorite teacher. What made him or her so special?

My favorite teacher growing up was my first grade teacher. She was so special because she taught us the value of staying organized, discovering our passions and she also taught us a lot about how to be kind and accepting of all people. The lessons that she taught us over 20 years ago inform the way that I approach my students to this day.
