In grade school, I wanted to be a history teacher. I looked up to my history teachers in high school and I realized that I had a skill for teaching. During high school, I tutored in history, biology, English and writing. I understood the different ways that students can learn whether that be visually, physically, verbally, logically, or socially. I tried to use real life examples and help my students learn the best way they know how to learn. I was patient with them and I took time to figure out their personalities in order to assess how to help them learn more efficiently. I think tutoring is more than trying to help a student pass a class or do some homework; its trying to teach them how to learn better in anything they take on. Later on, I volunteered at a elementary school with a professional company which helped kids catch up to their reading level and that gave more a guideline on how to create a lesson plan for children with learning disabilities. Recently, I volunteered at a high school to help young girls better themselves in all their subjects.
