I have been a tutor for 7 years, specializing in test prep and admissions tests. I also work with students on admissions essays and general homework help.
I come from a suburban town near Houston, Texas, where I attended an international studies high school and gained tutoring experience through working and volunteering. I have worked as an assistant teacher for ESL (English as a Second Language) and volunteered as a tutor in both regular and AP subjects throughout my high school years. I have a BA in International Studies, with a minor in Business Administration and a certificate in Community Based Participatory Research.
I am very interested in education, and I have spent lots of time studying different education systems and teaching methods. I believe that every single student has a unique way of learning and processing information, so it is important for them to develop their own studying habits and learning methods. That is why I want to be a tutor - so that I can help students discover their ideal way of learning.
I am a determined and dedicated student that wants to help others. I have experience tutoring and working with students that are struggling to grasp difficult material and concepts. I am a social and outgoing person who works well with others, and I will try my best to help students succeed.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Each student has a different way of learning, so my teaching philosophy tends to revolve around a custom teaching style, rather than a one-size-fits all style of learning.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

During the first session, I like to assess where exactly the student is in the learning process. This isn't always a test or quiz; oftentimes just talking to the student and asking him/her questions helps me determine where the student will need the most help. I also like to get to know the students I'm working with. This also helps me figure out the best way to help him/her.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Students need help, but they also need to be able to use studying techniques on their own. In those cases, I use a strategy known as "gradual release." Basically, if we are working on a particularly difficult problem or assignment, I will split it up into 3 parts. The first part I will work through with them completely. Then, the second part I will guide them to the answer, but they will find it partially by themselves. The third part is completely independent.
