I attended Cape Cod Community College and found out about the tutoring center. I found it to be incredibly supportive and useful, and I knew it would be a possibility I could tutor others in English (paper revision, vocab, spelling, theses, reading, and much more). When I got the letters of recommendation from previous professors I had, I was so very grateful to be able to help others in their struggle to overcome certain barriers in the learning process.
I had a paid tutoring position at Cape Cod Community College from March 2009 to December 2010. (I graduated with my Associates Degree and was no longer able to be a Peer Tutor). I currently attend (or will again once the Fall comes up) Bridgewater State for English Education.
- When it comes to tutoring, I don't like to be the sort who gives the answers away just so that the "tutoree" will pass their homework and quizzes. But I also don't take a drill sergeant's approach either. I find that most kids/adults receiving tutoring services learn best when they feel they can truly understand their work, instead of simply remembering terms and having no idea that they're relevant concepts.
- I think everyone deserves a good education and I would love to be a part of it!
