I am currently a senior at CUNY Brooklyn College working towards a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Children and Youth Studies. I work in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis with children who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder. I have experience tutoring students in elementary and middle school in a variety of subjects, but the subjects I have worked with most are English, Writing, and Math. I have worked as an after school counselor where a portion of each day was dedicated to assisting students with homework and often leading the class in completing assignments and problems that presented challenges. My favorite subject to tutor is Math because I struggled with Math from elementary school through High School. If it were not for tutoring, I would not have been able to grasp certain concepts on my own; a part of my philosophy in tutoring and in life is to use my experiences with challenges and learning to help other people reach a goal; for instance, using techniques I learned receiving math tutoring to help a student struggling in the same area. I believe it is important for students to understand their capability to solve a problem – my tutoring style involves an interactive approach in which I work from the bottom up with students, allowing them to express what they do understand first, before tackling that which might be confusing; I believe the confidence in knowing what you can do is important when learning to accomplish what you think you can’t do. A few of my interests outside of tutoring and working with children are playing my bass guitar, dancing, stepping, and playing with my dog! I am a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and also enjoy putting on programs and participating in community service with my chapter.
