I am currently a university student completing prerequisites to apply to medical school -- psychology major/chemistry minor.
I am passionate about learning, and I hope to promote that passion in others! My teaching style is very calm, and I'm very open to any sorts of questions on the material my students may have. I'm quite willing to repeat or re-word explanations as much as necessary for my students to grasp the concepts they're struggling with.
I believe any student can demonstrate improvements with motivation and the right instructor; I adapt readily to the style most suited toward my students.
I started tutoring while in high school, every Tuesday and Wednesday for two hours after classes had ended. I tutored Chemistry, along with Algebra 1 and 2. I tutored six Algebra 1 students considered most at-risk of failing the Algreba 1 EOC assessment. By the end of the school year, all six of my students passed the exam (and two of those students received the highest score).
I have additional experience tutoring College Algebra. I tutored two of my peers; both of them had been averaging 70%'s on the exams, and once I started tutoring them, their exam grades started averaging 90%'s. I, myself, received an A in the course.
I'm also experienced in working with elementary school children. I mentored two children -- one first grader and one second grader. Through my mentoring, I have experience working with children with ADHD, as the first grader I mentored was diagnosed with it. Through my mentoring, I helped develop social skills, organizational skills, and greater reading comprehension skills in the two students I worked with.
