I have tutored students in various math and science classes for the past 4 years and in English for the past 2. Passionate about teaching, I want to encourage motivated students to reach their full potential. I believe that this can only be achieved through communicating on the student’s terms. Specifically, I want to understand what the student’s goals are and how they think so I can explain various problems to them in a way they can understand it. This approach achieves two things: it allows students to understand complex problems easily and it encourages them to understand the problem-solving process rather than the results of any one particular problem.
I have leadership experience in a healthcare advocacy group and a hospital volunteer group that has allowed me to branch out and meet people in other fields. Through these interactions, I’ve honed my communication and leadership skills, and I believe that I would make a fantastic tutor for Whizsmart.
