Hello! My name is Haile and I am a current graduate student studying mental health counseling at Adler University. As you can see from my enclosed resume, I have worked as an Elementary School Teacher’s Assistant working with children from pre-school age through fifth grade. As a teacher's assistant, I gained valuable experience planning and organizing classroom activities as well as ensuring that older students received adequate tutoring and homework help. This position equipped me with the skills to think quickly on my feet and organize a group of students. My goal as a tutor is to empower a student's personal growth and knowledge in a particular subject. I aim to work with the student to meet their needs and promote academic achievement. I strive to set attainable goals with my student that we can measure together over time.

I can help a student become an independent learner by providing them with tools and structure to allow them to have a foundation to promote independence.
