I have been a tutor for the student athlete study center at UC Berkeley for the past three years now. I work with some student athletes who are mandated by their coaches, and also some student athletes who request a tutor at their own discretion. I work with most of them on writing courses due to the fact that I got an A+ in college writing at Cal. I also have tutored at a high school for the past 3 years, helping their football coach run a 2 hour Study table once a week during their football season. During that time, I help facilitate the study hall, and also work with another tutor to provide one on one support to members of the team who need individual help with whichever subject they are struggling with. I also have worked as a private tutor for two separate high school students. One of them who needed help in biology, and another who needed help in a pre-calculus class. Both of them improved greatly with tutorial support. I really try to help students who may be so lost in whichever class they are struggling with to feel confident, and not to lose hope. I strongly believe that succeeding in some of the classes that are competitive and discouraging starts with having the right state of mind, and believing in yourself. So, I try to help my students to have that state of mind as well.
