I taught students how to write, exercise critical thinking, and study for five years, while working as a professor of sociology. During this time I also taught students how to conduct sociological research and write undergraduate theses based on this research. For a further three years I taught UC Berkeley students how to design, execute, and write up social science research.

I am a great tutor for several reasons. I am very organized, writing out the lesson goals and lesson structure before each tutorial session. I give a copy of the goals and plan to my student and his parent, and ask for their approval of the plan, so that we are all on board. I listen carefully to what the parent and student want, planning my lessons accordingly, and modifying the plan or goals if the student needs help with something else because of a looming quiz or grade-bearing assignment. I am a creative teacher, successfully finding ways to best help the student learn, in accordance with their learning style. For example, I encouraged my current student of French to learn to conjugate verbs while throwing a ball, and it worked very well for him as he is a kinetic learner. I am an enthusiastic tutor and enjoy teaching, and it shows. I am diligent and conscientious, for example going overtime to provide detailed essay writing feedback for my student. Lastly, I am a very good communicator, telling the parent what we covered and what I plan to cover at the next lesson, and writing up a short report of each lesson.
