My name is Cheyenne and I am a recent graduate from UC Davis with a B.S. in Applied Statistics. Through my experience at Davis, I gained a passion for teaching, which led me to gain experience as a tutor through the Student Academic Success Center. There, I gained experience tutoring other college students in topics ranging from calculus to chemistry. Since childhood, I have loved to teach and am a firm believer that one does not understand a topic unless they are able to explain it to someone else. My plan is to begin medical school next fall and would love to spend my time tutoring students before I begin my journey. Aside from tutoring, I like to spend my time being active. You can most likely find me at the gym lifting weights or on the soccer field practicing my bicycle kicks!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My father, a physics professor, has always told me, "You don't understand a subject unless you are able to teach it." Therefore, I ensure my students have grasped a concept once they teach the subject back to me.

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

I would get to know my student and their familiarity with the subject. I think the first session is essential for understanding my student's background so I can develop a schedule which aligns with their needs and background.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

As a student, it's important to map your goals and the necessary effort it takes to achieve those goals. As a tutor, I will not only help my students achieve those goals, but I will also motivate my students to adopt habits which will allow them to become successful independent learners.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

From my experience, intrinsic motivation is cultivated as a result of feeling capable to succeed. Therefore, I will not only teach and reinforce concepts, but I will also help my students trust themselves that they can succeed. I will help stimulate cognitive curiosity and help enable my students into believing their hard work will lead to powerful outcomes.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

If a student has difficulty learning a new skill or concept, I would revise my strategy to cater to the student's learning style. If a student is a visual learner, I will be sure to use diagrams and drawings in order to relay the information as effectively as possible. Therefore, I believe it's essential to revise a curriculum in accordance with a student's learning style.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

If a student is struggling with reading comprehension, I would encourage an active learning style. I would work with students to create Venn diagrams and story maps. I would also ask questions at the end of each reading because this encourages purpose while reading and helps students monitor their comprehension. I would also encourage students to summarize the main ideas of each reading. Working with students through a cooperative learning style will hopefully foster the beginning of new strategies to improve comprehension.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

I like to first begin a session with my student to initially identify weaknesses and areas of improvement. I will then present the material in an effective manner and then allow my student to practice on their own. Once my student demonstrates understanding of the concepts, I will move on with more practice problems to reinforce comfort and literacy with the subject.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

When a student feels comfortable solving problems on their own, they begin to feel more comfortable and confident with the material. Therefore, I will strive to identify different problems related to the concept so I can help each student ensure they have had sufficient exposure to the concept and are ready to move on to the next one.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

I usually like to contact my students ahead of time so I know what concepts I should be ready to explain/tutor. This not only maximizes our efficiency during each session but also allows more time during tutoring sessions to address any other needs not previously mentioned.
