Dear Future Students,
I'm a tutor, I'm a friend, I'm a psychology and education student; I like to work with people, and I do not believe that anyone should be without help if they need it, regardless of whether or not they can afford to pay. I work with people because I love learning myself, and being able to help someone else understand something -- the look in their eyes -- makes me happy. To know that I can make a difference, and help someone achieve their goals -- that's what I'm about.
I learned everything that I know about tutoring from personal experience and from implementing ideas for improvement that I learned in my various psychology classes. I have always wanted to tutor, and in high school I did; I tutored the "Rebound" students who had failed two or more classes. I enjoyed helping these students understand algebra, biology, English, and social studies. Now that I am in college I want to continue tutoring students, despite that I can no longer afford to tutor for free. As I mentioned earlier, I have a dual passion for psychology and education; my course load reflects my love for these two subjects.
I believe that to understand what kind of care I will give you as a tutor that you deserve to know what kind of care I give myself. Throughout the beginning of my educational career, I had trouble staying organized, and I understand the challenge that it can be. I remember all of the different strategies that I tried, and I know what really works. My struggles continued in high school; I took Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate program classes in high school. Despite my struggles with these classes, I did achieve a passing grade with a lot of effort. I taught myself good study skills, and enforced these skills by teaching them to others. I plan to finish community college in the next year, then go to Arizona State University to complete my Bachelors and Masters Programs of Science in Psychology with an emphasis on Education. After achieving my Doctorate, I plan to do two things: open up a private practice for helping children and young adults with family issues, and to research and found my own school based on Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences. I believe that students deserve to learn in the way that they learn the best. The current educational system is flawed because it does not accommodate students who learn in styles other than the traditional auditory style. While the current educational system does not help students like that, I do. As you can tell, I am a very driven individual, and I will do everything in my power to make sure that you succeed.
If you have questions, ask me; other than that, I'm flexible and willing to work to help you meet your goals, no matter what they may be.
Thank you for taking the time to consider choosing me to be your tutor.
