Working individually with a student to help him or her solve problems is the most fulfilling aspect of being an educator. The most influential moments of my own education occurred during my professors' office hours during undergraduate and graduate schools. As a secondary science teacher, I find it difficult to provide students (in large classes with hectic schedules) with vital on-on-one instruction. I am grateful for the opportunity to provide students of any age the important experience of individual instruction.
