I am a current 4th year student at the University of Virginia studying Media. I have at my time at university also enjoyed pursuits such as Drama, Arabic, and French. I have had experience in tutoring kindergarteners during my time as a high school student, but as for teaching people closer to my age, I enjoy helping my friends in college who are just starting Arabic or Media studies classes because these are subjects I am passionate about. In tutoring, I think I would be particularly effective in teaching high-school or adult learners who are beginning French or Arabic, as well as International Baccalaureate students learning Physics HL, Psychology HL, Art SL, Math SL, and English HL as during high school these were my IB specializations. I have studied abroad in London for Media and Drama, and used that time to both learn new ways of teaching and learning that other nations use. In my spare time I enjoy playwriting, running, walking the city, and watching films.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is believing that a student can learn any subject they desire, and the trick is to show them that they are capable of anything, because every subject (whether art or science) is made simple when broken down into smaller steps to learn.

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

I might ask them what subjects they enjoy doing and why, and vice versa, which subjects they don't enjoy and why. I would look for ways to approach the subjects that the student doesn't like in a way that matches how they interact with more enjoyable subjects. For instance, if a student really likes literature but not physics, I would tell them to look at a physics problem more like a crossword puzzle. You can look at one piece of the puzzle, or problem, at a time, and complete each part until the whole thing fits together.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I think an important step in becoming an independent learner is first to foster confidence in oneself. I would always be working to help my student see the progress they have made in order to encourage them to see the fruits of their labor. I would as well encourage them to make note of their mistakes, and figure out on their own why they might have missed a problem. A student's understanding of how they make mistakes will help them in the future in double checking their work, and in understanding how a problem operates from start to finish.
