I'm a tutor who has had experience helping people of various ages and ability. My tutoring is effective enough that I am able to turn students who are seriously struggling around.
One of my students was a child who had difficulty focusing and working with tutors so many had given up on him. When I began working with him he was failing his class. By creating a structure which was specific and unique just for him, after observing his behavior, I was able to create a supportive and trusting working relationship with him. In just a month, his exam grades went from in the 50% area to in the high 80% area.
My secret is how I approach students. First, I don't see them as just students-- I see them as people. I am going to school for Marriage and Family therapy so I care deeply about my relationship with students. By paying attention to their personality and learning style, I can create more effective and personal teaching methods. I also create a strong teacher-student relationship which is key to getting students to invest in learning with me and feel comfortable working with me. This is why I am able to help students who have struggled with other tutors. Second, I care that they have a handle on the concepts and feel confident about approaching the material. Therefore, I will go above and beyond their assignments with my own questions to ensure they can answer things on their own. I will never assume that a student understands me right off the bat and am always willing to change the way I am presenting the information if necessary.
Lastly, I also was PSAT finalist, which means I scored in the top 99.9th percentile on the PSATS, scored an 800 in writing, 790 in verbal, and 700 in math on the SATs. This was done completely by self- study-- I never once took a course. This means that I know extremely well how to study for an exam like this and the effort, methods, and schedule necessary for my students to accomplish the same thing. I also am very experienced, as a result, in study skills.
I am a graduate of Wellesley College, a well-regarded liberal arts school, who majored in Economics and minored in Math. I have worked successfully with many children who are young, up until middle school. Furthermore, I am a published writer, scored a 2290 on my SATs, and was a national finalist on the PSAT (my score was in the 99.9th percentile). With my extensive educational background, high standardized test scores, and experience working with children, I am confident that I am qualified to work at the elementary level.
In college, I brought my GPA up from a 2.9 to a 3.4 in only 2 years. This was a result of my focus on developing my study skills in a more difficult and challenging educational environment. In addition, in high school, I practiced for the SATs and PSAT by myself-- I scored a 2290 on the SATs and my PSAT score allowed me to win a national merit finalist scholarship. Lastly, I have tutored several children and helped them developed their own methods of studying. Therefore, I am confident that I have the personal experience and knowledge to train others in study skills.
