---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I started tutoring in college as a part time job and I really enjoyed it. I ran group tutoring sessions for calculus and chemistry courses, typically with freshman and sophomore students. I worked as a group leader for these sessions for 2 years. As part of this job, I took a semester-long course on tutoring techniques. Specifically, the course emphasized asking the students questions to help them figure out the answers on their own and not leading them through the problems step by step. Also, I think group tutoring sessions allow students to help each other, without relying on an instructor to tell them how to work out a problem. After I graduated college, I began work tutoring two high school students in math and science (algebra, geometry, biology, and chemistry) while working on my Master's degree. This job involved one-on-one tutoring and I worked with the same students for 2 years. I found that I could apply the techniques I learned in my previous job to one-on-one tutoring and they worked well in this situation as well. In any type of tutoring job, I would also emphasize effective note-taking and using the textbook as a guide. I feel that many students struggle with this, especially in high school and college. I prefer that the student lead me through solving the problem, rather than the other way around, with some questions from me to guide them in the right direction. I would consider most high school and early college math and science courses to be my areas of expertise.
