I love making people smile! It is why I enjoy tutoring. There's nothing more frustrating than learning in a boring situation. Making tutoring fun helps to get the student excited about the subject, instead of being bored with it. I am gratified when I see a student smile after understanding something better. In addition, as a person, I enjoy making the people around me comfortable, which is also important for learning; students need to be comfortable to ask questions, as well as to open up about their struggles with a subject. Seeing a student go from confused or conflicted to comfortable and confident makes me smile!
