Hello potential tutoree,
I have written for several professional publications, worked in three foreign countries and taught English and journalism to various grade levels. While serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Romania, I became interested in tutoring.
Peace Corps was the most fulfilling and challenging time of my life so far. I lived in a tiny village and taught English and journalism to elementary and middle school children. The students and the things we accomplished together were the highlights of my service. Together we implemented a bilingual student magazine, created a music club and launched a hand-washing campaign that led to the installation of soap-filled dispensers in the school bathrooms. While these achievements may seem small, they were great accomplishments because they made the students realize they were capable of change.
My decision to tutor is due to the fact that I miss helping create change. For me, assisting students in the development of their skills and creativity through innovative tutoring practices is an exciting opportunity.
Thanks for reading.
