Knowledge is imperative for not only personal, but also social and economic growth. As a tutor, I would like to disseminate this knowledge and teach students the valuable skills needed to independently obtain knowledge, create concepts, and build new ideas on those fundamental concepts. I graduated as a University Scholar and pre-med student from New York University with a major in Psychology and minors in Physics, Molecular and Cell Biology, and Chemistry. Having excelled in Psychology and its research, I am a member of the International Honor Society in Psychology; hence, I am well qualified to teach this subject. Because I am passionate about reading and writing, both creatively and academically, I have excelled in the Critical Reading and Writing sections of the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and MCAT and have often tutored peers facing difficulties in these areas. Although I struggled with Physics in high school, I approached it differently at NYU, was extremely intrigued by it, and decided to pursue a minor in it.
This is the same kind of change I would like to bring about in my students through effective communication and personalized learning styles. There is no universal way to study, and understanding how a student learns new a concept is imperative to obtaining success in any field. I have taught young children, high school students, and college students topics like algebra, dance, and health education. Each age group positively responds to a different style of teaching, motivation, and communication; being adaptable and open to these changes is my forte. My teaching style often revolves around developing self-motivation, planning schedules, and understanding students' short-term and long-term goals. Because I recently graduated, I understand the stress students have managing their busy schedules, extracurricular activities, and studying for standardized exams, all while maintaining a solid GPA. Being flexible, compassionate, and patient is very important when teaching and I believe that an amalgamation of these traits, my teaching experience, and subject knowledge make me a well-rounded and effective tutor.
