Tutoring is more than one-on-one teaching and learning. It is finding a new way to master a familiar subject. It’s applying all of your natural and learned knowledge in hopes of analyzing the subject from different angles. Tutoring is not only my “part time job” but also something I feel truly passionate about. Some students, whether in 3rd grade or working on their master's degree thesis, need another dose of encouragement. That’s why I’m here.
My experience tutoring started in high school and has been ongoing for about 6 years. I started to help friends of mine, who were exceptional at math and science, pass their English classes. It was a matter of simply explaining why characters connected and how to write cohesive essays. I was also a soccer coach’s aid to the U-8 through U-14 divisions of my town. I was also selected to learn new soccer coaching skills at an elite summer camp overseas. As a member of the Speech and Debate team in High School, I decided to follow that passion throughout college. In High School, I was able to craft and develop public speaking skills. When I decided to take on both Forensics and Soccer in college, many thought the workload would be overbearing. I found it to be a superb balance. I was able to hone my public speaking and speech writing skills while being part of a team that kept me both physically and mentally healthy.
My uncle, who currently coaches soccer in Venezuela, always told me that teaching (be it soccer, math, reading, science, or whatever else) is less about focusing on the wrong, and more about focusing on the “other right” way to do something. I have adapted this as my tutoring philosophy, and hope to help many more in their development process.
