I have had numerous tutoring experiences, whether it be one-on-one personal tutoring for middle school kids or Competition Math. I think the value in me as a tutor is teaching students how to solve problems on their own, instead of just relying on me to give them the answers. I can teach students the importance of not giving up, ease the pressure they get from academics, and help them to comprehend the learning material more easily. I am able to put myself in their shoes and help them guide through each problem, essay, and assignment.
