I learned at a young age that one of the best ways to learn a difficult concept was to try teaching it. I began helping fellow classmates and siblings with their schoolwork throughout middle and high school. I was a quick learner and I had a desire to help those who were not as fortunate, while at the same time challenging myself to truly understand the subjects and discover alternative ways to present the material in order for others to learn it. This continued on through college where I joined study groups provided by the University of Michigan in which one facilitator met with a group of students and encouraged them to help each other with difficult courses. I was never a facilitator, but I did do at least one study group every week during seven out of eight semesters on campus. I would also lead study halls in my fraternity and help younger members who were in classes in which I performed well. For six months of last year I had a 10 year old nephew and 12 year old niece living with me. I helped them with all subjects of their classes on a near daily basis. My niece was struggling tremendously with math as she missed much of the previous school year. I helped her become an A student, which was unfamiliar to her. I have helped a wide variety of students in several different courses ranging from middle school to post-graduate material. I have always done it for free while focusing on the value it has on my personal growth, the need from friends and family, and the enjoyment I receive from working with others. The biggest motivation for me to tutor is my desire to see other people succeed and realize their potential.
