When I first moved to the United States when I was in fifth grade, I knew less than fifty words of English and the nearby school did not have an ESL program. One of my neighbors, however, saw our family's situation and volunteered to tutor me English three times a week preparing me for the classes at school and setting me up for success. He guided me through every minute questions I had patiently and taught me the problem solving skills that made me become an independent learner.
My experiences as a tutor motivated me to share my knowledge to the community. I worked as a teaching assistant for two courses while attending Cornell University, and worked two years as a teacher at a local high school in a Cambodian countryside. These experiences taught me how to deliver complex information and how to adapt to each student's unique learning styles. I believe these qualities will help me become an efficient teacher, guiding my students along the way just like how my neighbor guided me.
