Catherine

I am a junior in college at Emory University. This summer, I have a Marketing and Events Planning internship in New York, something I gained through a lengthy application process and interviews. In high school, I was extremely dedicated in school as well as my extracurriculars, and it paid off. I am still extremely involved in school, tutoring, and work, but now at a college level. I learned how to manage it all, and now hope to help others.

I have danced since the age of two, and also dance at college. Additionally, I learned how to paint henna tattoos on the Jersey Shore where I worked for the last two years. I've tutored for a few years now, especially college planning, and standardized tests. This is a little about me, and I can't wait to meet you!

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is simple. Boost a student's confidence, while breaking down even the most complex situations into simpler ideas.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In my first session I would discuss expectations and streamline our focus into what we specifically need to work on, whether this is through looking at old homework, or taking practice tests.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

A student needs confidence and motivation to become an independent leader. This is achieved through discovering their strengths, and improving their weaknesses, something I aim to do as a tutor.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I will help a student stay motivated through praise and encouragement when they are successful. It is important to recognize when they are successful, and encourage them to keep trying when they aren't.
