My name is Vanessa B., and I just graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor's degree in Geology on June 2012. I'm currently applying for graduate school, pursuing the same major as a Master's student. I joined WyzAnt a few months ago.
Before I transferred to UCLA, I was studying in Pasadena City College, where I worked as a Math tutor for two years. I have experience in dealing with different learning styles, and I learned how to shape my teaching style in accordance to someone's way of learning.
I believe that everyone learns in their own way, and that no way is better than another. I consider someone's time precious; as such, I always make sure that my students get the best out of their time.
It brings me great pleasure when students understand something they did not before, because I know that I helped them overcome their weakness, however small that may be.
I don't go easy on my students; my goal is to make sure that students come out of my tutoring sessions with confidence and understanding of the subject that I helped them with. I have the tendency to put high expectations on what I and my students can accomplish during those sessions. This, I think, greatly benefits the students.
Thank you for reading, and I look forward to hearing from you!
