My name is Adeola A., and I am a 23 year old student, currently attaining a master's degree at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in Manhattan, New York. I received my undergraduate degree in biology, with a concentration in molecular genetics at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia. My favorite subject was biology and algebra in high school, but I decided to study biology in college. While in college, I took difficult subjects like organic chemistry, biochemistry and physics, but organic chemistry ended up being my most enjoyed and favorite class. The first time I tutored was at the Hands on Atlanta tutoring program at Parklane Elementary School. I tutored grades 3 and 4 children, which was a fulfilling experience, and it helped ignite my interest in tutoring at my spare time.
I believe every child is unique and has different learning capabilities. As a tutor it is our job to take what the child has learned in school, and further ensure that they understand the subject thoroughly. Learning should be fun and shouldn't be a burden! I remember while in high school, having tutors that were robot-like, and weren't able to relate with me. As a result, I got rid of the tutors, and started to learn on my own. I have had experiences tutoring in college with science organizations, and I have also tutored my younger siblings and cousins. I believe a student has to understand the subject rather than just memorizing, in order to be able to better perform in that subject. I teach in a way that the student will understand the what, when, and why of the matter. I will provide subject-specific, practice problem worksheets for the students to help them in their learning I always feel content and accomplished when my students come back home with good grades, as a result of my tutoring.
