Hello! I am currently a sophomore at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign majoring in Biochemistry, and I am very excited to spend time this summer tutoring students in the nearby area. In high school, I was a peer tutor for several students who came to my hours consistently. I tutored in ACT (Score: 34) and SAT preparation, Mathematics, Chemistry, and German I. Through this experience, I spent over 300 hours over four years helping classmates who struggled with certain concepts pinpoint exactly where they were having difficulty. I feel that after these four years, I have become more patient with all the students I tutor, especially the ones in younger grades.
One particular example that sticks out to me is a friend who had to miss her first semester of Junior year of high school due to a family issue. As soon as she returned to our school, she asked me for help, and we worked through Geometry and Algebra II material every day for two and a half months of the semester. She told me that she had previously struggled in this material but now felt much more confident with the classes. I felt so humbled and rewarded that I was able to use my time and efforts to provide whatever assistance I could to someone who needed it.
I would like to use this opportunity as a way to communicate with students and instill confidence in each student. My goal as a one-on-one tutor is to meet the needs of you or your child's learning style.
