I am currently in my second year of pharmacy school at Butler University. I believe the only limitations for a student are the limits they place upon themselves. I strive to show students their possibilities they can achieve and guide them along the way. I could not have gotten to where I am today without great teachers and mentors.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
Work through what the students know, and begin to build off of the basics.
How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?
Relate interests of the student to the subject they are struggling in, if a student relates a subject to what they are passionate about; their learning will progress exponentially.
What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?
Utilizing the tutoring platformニ_s study questions and tailored homework questions to the student's needs.
How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?
Start with building off of what the student knows, and solidify their understanding of the basics. Then, give the student a problem that they have to think through using what they know to solve the problem. When the student has to apply what they know, their depth of learning will be much deeper and they will get more out of the exercises.
How do you evaluate a student's needs?
Before the tutoring begins, ask the student what their goals are and determining a plan that suits them. We will then determine where they are in that plan to determine what skills we need to strengthen to allow us to execute our plan.
How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?
Determine what type of learner the student is, and tailor tutoring sessions to best fit their learning style.
What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?
My personal school notes and textbooks, their equation sheets and notes, and the tutoring platformニ_s Learning Tools.
