"My first teaching experience was working as a Teaching Assistant at the Sylvan Learning Center, where I followed tailored curricula to tutor students from four to 16 years old who were having trouble in math, reading, or study skills.

In Benin I had my own daily class of 18-25-year-olds for whom I developed my own curriculum tailored to their needs. I also started a critical thinking club for elementary and early high school students that generated a lot of enthusiasm." ...

"However, many of my friends there were education majors who influenced me on a daily basis as they passionately related how rewarding it was to be able to push a pupil just a little bit further through encouraging words. When I was studying in Paris, I not only traveled throughout Europe, but had the exhilarating opportunity to tutor a French student in English.

In fact, I was so captivated by this experience, that upon my return to college, I volunteered to be a teaching assistant for a French course. Although I lacked prior teaching ...

" I have always loved helping others with papers, test prep, and general grasping of concepts they struggle with. I am a firm believer in finding a way to relate information to each student, which makes for a great student-tutor dynamic. Friends have often asked me why I haven't considered teaching (though I have taught conflict resolution in a 5th-grade class), and my answer is simple-- I love the connection you get when working with students one-on-one or in a small group. It is so much more rewarding to see that student develop into their full potential.." ...
