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.
