My experiences in the field of education have involved a variety of different areas, including elementary level math, reading, and writing, as well as Chemistry and Biology. As a Neuroscience liberal arts major, I have a background in a wide variety of subjects, allowing me to approach each subject using techniques that integrate methods from different topics. I have experience through a volunteer organization called Project Story Boost in which I tutored elementary school children from 3rd-4th grade in reading and comprehension. As a Big Sister, I also tutored a third grader in math and science. I was also a tutor for an Introductory level college Chemistry course at Bates College, in which I was paired individually with a student who needed assistance in understanding homework and lecture material. I have also been a teaching assistant for two different statistical analysis courses at Wesleyan University in which I held office hours and lectures to help students with their comprehension of the course material. My methods for teaching reading and writing involve integrating fun, exciting techniques that engage the student in the material. By involving different methods of approaching the material, the student will be exposed to the material in different ways, allowing him or her to become interested in the subjects.

Though I have mastered the topics I am comfortable tutoring, I treat each tutoring session as a learning process in which the student and I learn the material together as a team. This type of tutoring dynamic fosters a positive learning environment in which the student is able to thrive. This environment allows students to replace the idea that the material is "too hard" with the idea that the material is an "exciting challenge." I am trained in different communication techniques that allow me to accurately assess the weak points for students, and using these points as a baseline for the session, I tailor each session to the student's individual needs. My greatest ambition as a tutor is to inspire children to both find and develop their own passions for learning.
