I am a current student at Brigham Young University under an academic scholarship and working towards my English Teaching B.A. After obtaining my degree I plan to become a high school English teacher. I have been tutoring students for six years in various subject fields, particularly in remedial English and ESL classes as an in-class peer tutor. I also love to tutor for the ACT and want to help as many students as possible realize their biggest dreams within the world of academia (and encourage their other dreams outside of it!). I enjoy tutoring because I love to help students build confidence in school, and help them learn how to enjoy learning. There are so many students that are discouraged and disheartened in the typical classroom setting because they aren't able to receive the individualized attention they require. I love to relate academic concepts to the student's personal life and teach them better habits for eventual success on their own. I am a firm believer that everyone has a unique learning style, and I like to help students discover what theirs is and the ways that they can change their study habits and how they participate in the classroom. Once the student learns how they learn best, they become much more confident going forward in school and feel a significant reduction in anxiety during tests (a challenge many students face). When I'm not focused on my own school work or helping others excel in theirs, I love to read, create paintings with watercolor pencils, and participate in musical theatre.
