I have gone through the Air Force ROTC program at Georgia Tech these past four years, learning to lead and develop a wide range of individuals into our future leaders in the military. As an engineer, I feel that creative skills help one look outside the box to find innovative solutions to problems.
I have worked at The Tutoring Club in Valrico, Florida for the past five years. While there, I was an instructor, tutor, and mentor to students ranging from pre-school to college. I have a lot of experience dealing with children of all ages with various math based school subjects. Also, I have volunteered over 400 hours helping and tutoring migrant children. I have helped develop their school, studying, and computer skills.
As an instructor at The Tutoring Club in Valrico, Florida, I have taught math and science based subjects to children of all grade levels. I also have experience teaching SAT/ACT math subjects. Along with tutoring, instructing, and mentoring school children, I have also taught college students in various college level math courses
Through my time at ROTC, I have learned to be very flexible with numerous individuals. I have had to adjust my leadership style several times in order to target specific individuals or situations. As a Flight Commander, my goal was to train, develop, lead, and mentor a flight of 30 individuals. To do so, I needed to one understand each Flight member. Each cadet offered a unique skill and had various strengths and weaknesses. With these in mind, we placed the Flight in various obstacles. I let my Flight carry out the task on their own accord. I feel that the best way for individuals and teams to develop is to let them get their boots wet. I would ensure the safety of my Flight and make sure all rules and safety precautions were taken. It would only be after they had completed such tasks that I would debrief them on what they did, how they performed, and the end result of their course of action. Overall, I allowed them to grow, build on their experiences and learn from their mistakes.
