I am a caring and attentive tutor who is sensitive to the needs of the individual students I work with, and I am able to offer helpful and appropriate suggestions when necessary. I work under the philosophy that inspiration and encouragement are extremely helpful tools to motivate students struggling with course material or written assignments. I do not feed students answers, but rather ask them questions to help trigger the knowledge they have of course material, and help them to draw conclusions themselves.
I always endeavor to make the subject matter I am working with as interesting as possible, and try to help the students I tutor feel capable and excited to finish their project or course. When I worked with individual students as a history tutor, I always made my appointment times and as a scheduled tutor through UC Santa Barbara's Writing Tutor program, I arrive on time to all my shifts, and I am excited to meet with students.
