First thing that describes me, and my peers can support this as well. I love mathematics. I enjoy the challenge of mathematics and how it can strive one to become better. However, I wasn't always in love with mathematics. I would often struggle because I didn't have good study habits and learning habits. But I came across a few great teachers who inspired me to find those good habits. I also enjoy learning and growing. I particularly enjoy seeing others learning and growing as well, which is why I am going into education. I will go out of my way for my students. Compassion for the art and subject is my biggest strength. I am patient as well and will work with my students as long as it takes. I understand that everyone learns a little differently. So I am open to many different teaching and tutoring methods, whatever works for the individual.
I am the first of five siblings to have graduated from high (three others dropped out of high school) and the first in my family to receive a college degree. Not only am I proud of myself, I also witnessed firsthand the effects an education has on students. I have seen all my siblings and many friends drop out or quit their education because of the stress of the curriculum. I am also aware that there are those teachers out there that have poor teaching skills. Students may not learn from their teachers; this is expected from some classes. So I know the after school learning, such as homework and tutoring are important because it connects the learning (or supposed to be learning) from the classroom to outside the classroom.
