Mark Twain once said, "I have never let my schooling interfere with my education."
I come from a small liberal arts college in rural Oregon, Pacific University. I am great one on one tutor, especially with people that require a tutor with a lot of patience. My younger brother is developmentally disabled and is in the autism spectrum. School was always hard for him, and helping him was always hard for me. It wasn't until he and I were both in high school that I could really help him when he started taking classes that I had also taken. At first, he struggled. But after a while I figured out that I was a lot more help to him if it was a class that I had also taken. Working with him in unique hands-on exercises related to learning concepts helped cement a lot more information and made learning fun for him. Learning and teaching then became fun for me, and has continued to be something I try to do even as a graduate. I was a teaching assistant in the class and in the laboratory for two and half years at Pacific University in several disciplines in the natural sciences. I consider myself one of the most patient people you will ever meet, and I can instill confidence in others by using my infectious attitude, which others would describe as passionate, proactive, and outgoing.
