As an individual in a different country, I faced the cultural and adaptation difficulties that one has to overcome. The adaptations were not only in my personal life, but in going through the education system in the United States. I sat for hours, tutoring myself in various aspects, as vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and many more, to be able to achieve my goals. I did not give up. I dedicated hours and hours to be able to perform to the best of my abilities.
I was able to reach graduate school with a Masters degree in Guidance and Counseling (in addition to a Bachelors degree in Psychology). During this process, I was able to reach to others and tutor them in various subjects. Having a knowledge in age appropriate tutoring and the knowledge of how to adjust my tutoring skills to the different personalities; I think, I would be of an advantage to the student.
My personal qualities of patience, knowledge of individual personalities differences, listening skills, worldly experiences and knowledge, would contribute to the success of the tutoring.
