I started tutoring per my sister's suggestion, who is 3 years younger and went through the same classes that I took, 3 years later. She said I was good at explaining what I had learned, and that I should give tutoring a shot.
I'm from Longmont, CO, where I grew up hiking/biking/skiing, swimming, and playing soccer. I eventually came to CU Boulder in 2016, where I am currently a Sophomore studying Neuroscience. I am most comfortable tutoring science subjects (Biology, Chemistry, Physics) and Math, but would also love to try tutoring Reading or Writing.
With students, I want to sketch out clear goals at the beginning so that we can make sure are working productively each session. Preferably, I'll keep working with a student until those goals are met. Focusing on strategies that are generalizable across subjects can show a wide improvement in multiple areas, but the specific strategies that work depend on the individual learning style of the student.
