Growing up in one of the most densely populated places in the world has always played a big role in my life. Beyond anything, education was of the utmost importance. However, I still enjoyed school and was unaware of the amount of pressure or the competition around me. Mathematics was always my favorite subject and occupied most of my time. This love of mathematics led to my teaching mathematics as well. To further my career and personal goals I have decided to continue my education by pursuing a doctorate degree. And to gain more experience I am interested in becoming a tutor at varsity. At my university, I worked as a teaching assistant at the math lab. There I gained multi-cultural teaching experience. I assisted students with their work, helped professors and proctored classes. Working both as a TA and an RA gave me practical experience and a higher level of responsibility. I was also active on campus and a member of the math club. After graduating, I started teaching at universities and colleges. I have been employed for almost two years and have been teaching both developmental and undergraduate courses. Teaching students has been my greatest educational experience. It is both challenging and interesting to teach students from different ethnic and educational backgrounds. Teaching and tutoring mathematics has given me a much deeper knowledge of the theories and concepts that I have learned. Teaching these young individuals has taught me so much. Our daily interactions have been not only enjoyable but in some ways eye opening. Every student is a person with their own ideas and experiences. I want to enhance my experience by doing more tutoring both in-person and online. Doing this would be fulfilling and meaningful to me. Thank you for considering my application.
