As a rising senior at the University of Pennsylvania, I've been tutoring since I was a freshman in high school. While I started as a freelance tutor in my hometown of Maplewood, I worked at an SAT tutoring company in Montclair, NJ for two years, in addition to my volunteer tutoring work in West Philadelphia. Additionally, this past summer, I worked at a test prep company in Summit, NJ, in which I tutored both both rising seniors in high school and struggling, eager middle school students. I have taught students of varying ages, education levels, and socioeconomic backgrounds over the years, which I believe has helped me grow as an tutor.
Given that this is a service industry, my number one goal is to see my students improve. Tutoring is a give-and-take process, and as such I encourage my students to give me feedback regarding my methods, pace, or level of difficulty. I look to challenge my students, but I will always be there to work through any frustration and see to it that they succeed.
I've just recently begun tutoring in writing, but I've been a math tutor for six years now. I am an economics major at school, and as such I've taken many high level math courses. Most importantly, though, I find math genuinely interesting, and will look to instill some of that interest in my tutees.
