I am currently a certified tutor and supplemental instructor at Mt. San Antonio College’s writing center. My work as
a tutor has allowed me to build my confidence and knowledge with helping students develop their writing skills, grammar use, and reading comprehension. Within the year and a half that I have worked as a supplemental instructor, I have learned to plan creative and successful tutoring sessions for students struggling with specific issues in English. My tutoring method has also developed into a Socratic way of teaching that involves a use of open- ended questions that can spark a student’s sense of critical thinking and comprehension of their reading or essay questions.
I believe that in order for a student to fully develop analytical writing and reading skills, he or she must know which questions to reflect on. Sometimes it can be difficult to think of analytical questions, so it helps to have a tutor alongside for guidance. I try to be more direct when helping students with grammar. Usually, I will explain a grammar rule and have the student practice using the rule with several handouts or games I create.
Whether it is reading, writing, or grammar help that you need, I will be glad to assist you.
