I graduated from CSU Long Beach with a B.A. in Anthropology, and will be going to graduate school in order to pursue a career in elementary education. I have been an ESL tutor for 2 years, and I am currently volunteering at a local library as a facilitator.
During my time as an ESL tutor and library volunteer, I feel that I have acquired the skills that are needed to become an effective tutor. Along with these skills, creativity and patience plays a significant role in teaching in order to properly illustrate a number of ideas to both kids or adults. I feel confident that I can motivate students so that they can truly grasp the material being discussed.
I am very passionate about teaching. I want to provide a friendly and positive environment for students who feel unmotivated or discouraged because of differing circumstances. I strive to utilize any educational tools and materials provided in order to help ensure that the students understand the certain concepts at hand. I will do anything it takes to have students realize that nothing is impossible as it seems, and that school can be truly redeeming and enjoyable.
