I am trying to ultimately become a high school biology teacher, but currently I am looking to find work as a tutor. I’ve really enjoyed tutoring students in the past, and find education to be very fulfilling. I graduated in December from UCSC with a Biology (B.S.) degree, but since then I have been supporting myself by tutoring privately and at learning centers. Last year I worked at the Santa Cruz Learning Center, and the Los Gatos Tutoring Club as well as tutoring on my own. When I moved down to San Diego I found out about WyzAnt, and since then it has been a great way to find students.
I believe my past will help me be a better teacher, and each new session will be a valuable experience for me. And if I was given the opportunity, I would work with you to build the skills and habits it takes to succeed.
From my past experiences, I have learned the biggest thing that prevents learning is disliking a subject. I try to make my examples relate-able to my students' everyday life, showing them how they can use a concept in the real world. I also work on developing self-management skills, so that learning can be done efficiently and with confidence.
I look forward to hearing from you.
