I have worked as a writing tutor for nearly three years now and am working towards my Master's degree. I am a recent graduate of CSULB, where I completed my undergraduate degree in English Literature, and believe the best learning happens when an individual interacts with the material in a way that complements their own learning style. A calm, collected approach to difficult subjects is the key to mastering it.
I have the ability to tutor several other subjects including English Literature, Writing, American Sign Language Philosophy, Astronomy, History and Religion. I am very patient, believing that versatility and flexibility in teaching as well as learning are key to a successful tutoring experience. I understand that some students have difficulty working with certain subjects and experience frustration. It is my goal to help each student I work with feel confident in themselves and their learning ability. As a student myself, it allows for a unique perspective on tutoring and education as I view every day as an opportunity to learn. My own educational experiences motivates me to help students, struggling or not, to reach their full potential.
I am a tutor at COS for a year and a half and have experience tutoring not only at the college level but also at the K-12 level. I have taken several educational classes that focus on teaching to all grade levels. I plan on being a teacher so I have done extensive research on my own regarding learning styles and communication with children.
I have taken two semesters of ASL at College of the Sequoias and received an A in both courses. I also participate in several events in the deaf community as well as am involved with the ASL club at CSULB. I keep up with my signing by constant practice and private instruction with an ASL interpreter. I also am continuing my formal study in ASL by seeking an associate's degree in ASL from a community college.
I was a tutor for two years at my community college as well as a AI for an English class. In those positions I was trained to find ways to aid students in studying and focusing. Good studying begins with good notes and understanding of self. I believe strongly in tailoring studying to students in order to improve efficacy but not to the extent of homework time becoming play time. By working with a student's learning style I hope to bring greater retention to study time.
I have been playing tennis for 7 years. I began taking lessons when I was 12 and have played in numerous summer leagues. I played tennis for all four years that I attended high school and was Co-captain my senior year. I understand the fundamentals of the game as well as have a knowledge of the history. I have coached a summer league of children 12 and under and have several techniques to teach the strokes, rules and strategies of the game to both young men and women.
I have been in three musicals in high school, The Wizard of Oz, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor dream coat and Oliver. I have been a stage manager for several shows, most recently The Wedding Singer preformed by El Diamante and have taken an intermediate and advanced drama course in high school. I am now taking an introduction to theater and dramatics at College of the Sequoias; I am intending to make theater my minor.
