I am currently a freshman at Keiser University. I am working towards earning my B.A. degree in Criminal Justice. I plan to pursue a career as a teacher in a juvenile detention facility. I've always loved teaching people new things. As a young child, I would take my old school books and teach my younger siblings upper-classed math. I loved teaching all different subjects, but I was always best at teaching match. I could swiftly find less complex ways to teach lessons, and in no time they were comfortably, efficiently, and effortlessly solving and understanding advanced math concepts. With the many approaches I used tutoring my younger siblings, I found one to stand out more than the others. The most outstanding approach I discovered (which is now my go-to way to tutor) was reinforcing and referring to their prior knowledge. Once I find out their most comfortable learning styles and ways to solve problems, I used that information as the base of how I begin to teach the advanced math. This technique has worked wonders for me. In each year of grade school, I seemed to be more advanced in my grade level's math courses. Once my teachers noticed, they would immediately impose me to tutor my peers. I absolutely enjoyed tutoring kids near and around my age because not only should you understand your students, but building a relationship makes it much easier. Once a student is comfortable with you, they then begin to become relaxed and they trust that you understand them.
