My name is Annan and I’m a rising junior at Princeton University pursuing a degree in Molecular Biology. Although I mainly study biology, my course of study has fortunately allowed me to experience and learn material from other subjects such as Calculus, Economics, Spanish, Organic Chemistry, Computer Science, and American History. Whether it’s been drawing mechanisms for reactions or conjugating verbs, I’ve always had a passion for learning and understanding.
My experience as a dedicated student with a knack for learning made me want to put my skills to good use by becoming an academic tutor. I started in high school as a peer mentor and weekly tutor for students struggling with learning Spanish, and since then I’ve continued by tutoring at Princeton’s McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning. My experiences at McGraw helped me refine the characteristics and skills it takes to be a good tutor: patience, empathy, preparedness, and enthusiasm. I have experience tutoring students from grades K-college.
In my opinion, a tutor’s goal should be to help students develop and cultivate the learning methods that work best for them while keeping them as engaged as possible. Keeping this in mind allows students to leave sessions with an in depth understanding of their material.
