I am currently a student at the College of the Sequoias in Visalia, Ca and have met all the requirements for an AA English degree, but I am continuing my education to earn an AS math degree as well. I plan to transfer to a university after the Spring of 2013 to work on a BA and BS degree and teacher's credentials so that I may work as a high school math and English teacher. I also have a dream of one day going to graduate school to earn a PHD in Education. I have always had a strong passion for education, yet school has always been difficult for me.
I am not one to quickly understand concepts like other students, but after much patience and lots of time I have become very skilled at these subjects. I am a math and English major; English is my strongest subject, but I must say that math is definitely not easy for me, yet I have managed to maintain my high grades in all my classes.
I have learned to teach myself ways to make learning more simple, and I use those methods and strategies with other students. Because I have to put much time into learning, I feel that I can relate to the students that I have tutored in the past. This has also aided me in helping my younger brother, who has a learning disability, with his math and English classes. I am very patient, motivated, optimistic, passionate about teaching and education and determined not to give up. I know that school is not easy, but my goal is to help the students I tutor have a better understanding of what they are studying so that they will no longer feel lost and overwhelmed with school-that they continue their education and gain confidence knowing that they can achieve what they set their mind to.
In the past, I have done lots of volunteer tutoring: as a private algebra student for a middle school student, as a teacher's assistant at my former middle/elementary school during the summer, and as a volunteer tutor helping to prepare students in passing the CAHSEE exam. I now work as a Math and Spanish tutor at the College of the Sequoias and sometimes as a private algebra tutor.
If interested in my tutoring services, I would be more than willing to work with you. Hope to hear from you soon! Good luck in your subjects!
