Viola

I am currently enrolled at NYU Tandon School of Engineering and am majoring in Integrated Digital Media with a minor in computer science. While I am a full-time student, I see no better option than tutoring in my spare time. I first started tutoring in my first year of high school and continued through my four years which definitely helped me mature in that time. There is something so unexplainably gratifying in seeing one's frustration in not understanding a concept turn into excitement once he/she has grasped it. In order for a child to succeed, it is key that they are helped through this frustration stage so that they can regain the confidence to tackle any problem put before them. I found it very important to not only help the children I tutored to rebuild their confidence, but to also let them know that success is dependent on how much effort they put into their studies. I often asked students how they felt after the introduction of every concept in order to gage their understanding of the material thus far; this was beneficial because I could usually monitor when a child would get confused thus understanding when I had to focus on certain material. I, too, was a child who was too nervous to stop my teachers/tutors anytime I would get confused which is why I think it is necessary to reach out and ask the child how they are doing.
I tend to gravitate more towards tutoring in math because of the ease I had with it when I was in middle and high school but am still more than willing to tutor humanities based subjects. Outside of academia, I like to draw, paint, creatively write, and volunteer at animal shelters.
