My tutoring goals are not only to help students improve their academic work, but also empower them to independently produce better results in the future. I have experience tutoring students in different age groups, from elementary school to graduate school. As a tutor at my college's writing center, I assisted in leading a workshop discussing best strategies for ESL tutoring. Having studied both Spanish and Japanese, I understand the difficulties of learning a new language and am excited to help students master English writing, speaking, and grammar.

Q & A

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

In a typical first session with a student, I will first review the student's goals for the tutoring sessions. This may include reviewing assignments, class material, and the teacher's expectations. We will discuss the student's strengths and the skills he/she would like to develop.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I can help a student become an independent learner by identifying the student's strengths and possible points of improvement. Then I develop strategies to help the student understand how to self-edit and self-correct. This may include reviewing concepts, using visual learning, and giving examples.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I will work with the student to develop a specific set of goals and achievements that the student would like to accomplish in a given time frame. To help the student stay motivated, we will try to achieve measurable milestones and produce tangible results in accordance with the timeline.
