I believe that one of the main purposes of life is to learn. Knowledge is something of great value, more so than money, fame, etc. Learning paves the foundation not only for us in our ability to provide for ourselves financially, but for a better quality of life. One of the reasons I chose to become a tutor is that it provides others something of great worth. I enjoy it and feel fulfilled rather than simply being motivated by the money. It is a great opportunity to give to the community.
Each student has a great potential for learning and knowledge. Everyone, with hard work, can tap in to deep potential and do great things. I seek to focus on the individual, their talents, abilities and desires, and help them to do this. I want people to realize the value of education for its own sake rather than simply being motivated by grades or test scores. Too often in education, potential goes untapped because it does not teach to individual's needs and is over-focused on results. One of the biggest problems is that when we are focused solely on results or grades, students will fail to develop a love of learning. They will not be self-sufficient and seek knowledge for the rest of their lives, and need constant monitoring and prodding from teachers and administration. I seek to instill this love of learning in the individual.
