Hello! While in high school (native Chicagoan), I was enrolled in a two year practical nursing program. At the beginning of my second year in the program, I was hired as a tutor to help other nursing students. I developed a passion to help others improve academic performance. I tutored small groups as well as one-on-one sessions. I reviewed what was covered in class and explained concepts that students did not understand. I also compiled practice problems for the students to ensure that they understood the concepts and could apply information critically. Once I finished high school, I attended Saint Louis University (SLU) and earned a degree in Biochemistry. I worked as an athletic tutor and helped students in General and Physical Chemistry, College Algebra, World History, Basic to Intermediate Spanish and English Composition courses. Most of the sessions I conducted were one-on-one but I also tutored a number of group sessions for General Chemistry. Before an appointment with a student, I prefer to find out what topic the student is covering in their class and where the student is struggling. During the session, I will walk the student through a problem, making an effort to explain and break down the problem. I then give the student an opportunity to work through similar problems with guidance as necessary. Currently as a medical student at SLU, I've grown to appreciate this method more and more. It is important to ensure my students understand the fundamental concepts and then be able to apply them backward and forward. For subjects such as English and composition courses, I help the student successfully edit their work and give the student tips and suggestions to improve their writing and editing skills. I try to tailor the session to the student and work based on their needs. I strive to explain everything in a manner that's easy for the student to understand and I encourage the student to practice good study habits as well as become more engaged in class."
