I am a current student at Arizona State University majoring in Psychology and Political Science and maintaining a 4.0 GPA. I have been tutoring for about 8 years now, and I have acquired certain strategies and tools that can be very helpful with test taking and writing. I have been involved in speech in debate for 3 years and I am currently a member of the ASU forensics team. I am currently aiming to obtain a J.D./PhD with a focus in psychology and plan to continue teaching/tutoring throughout my professional life. In addition I have worked for a couple of political campaigns in the past and have had a lot of success. In addition, I was involved in a law internship through a private law firm. This positions have tested and improved my communication skills and organizational skills. With these skills, I can bring forth an excellent tutoring environment for students, and ensure they receive the knowledge and experience necessary to improve their grade and ensure they have a bright future.
I have been tutoring since I was in 6th grade, therefore I understand how important it is for students to get help in their studies early. Experience is extremely important when it come to education, and I am not a tutor that just helps students memorize facts and numbers. My philosophy is that students should gain real experience, not just understanding the material. With me, students can gain vital critical and analytical thinking skills that will not only help them understand the material, but actually be able to apply the material in a real life scenario. That said, I believe in student led sessions in which the student is in charge for the bulk of the session while I guide discussion, add input, and make corrections if necessary. This allows the student to fully develop the skills he or she needs to succeed in his/her academics as well as everyday life and future career.
I currently maintain a 4.0 GPA in my college studies and graduated high school with high honors. In order to accomplish this I used many study techniques to not only memorize facts but to analyze and conceptualize items in order to retain the knowledge and use it in everyday life. I also have many test taking strategies that can help students do better on tests. Along with personal experience I also have eight years of experience tutoring students to prepare for tests or other assessments through tutoring and peer tutoring programs.
I have been playing violin for about ten years. I have played in both my school orchestra as well as formed a quartet in which I played for local community events. I have been involved in symphonic orchestras, honors chamber orchestras, and have been a first chair violinist in my high school orchestra. In addition, I have also helped teach beginning students violin while volunteering at summer school sessions.
Over-all Great Tutor — I was impressed with Erik's level of professionalism. He spent 6 weeks over the summer working with my son on study skills and he came prepared each week with something for him to work on. He took the time to review different ways of studying and determined how my son learned best. He then not only worked with him to reinforce that skill, but worked on the other ways so that he could improve in ...
