I am currently in my final year studying accounting at Brooklyn College. I work with an after school organization, BENI (Brooklyn Empowerment Neighborhood Initiative), where I basically tutor young men but in a larger group as well as engage in athletic activities with them. I love helping others. I actually feel a great joy when I get someone to understand something in which they had trouble before. Also I have had success tutoring fellow classmates, underclassmen, to exceptional understanding of accounting material. I have also tutored with high school students in various mathematical subjects. I have been able to lead them to a solid understanding of the material by overall, being patient. I have a special ability to break down material and explain things in numerous ways that I feel I can get anyone to understand. I know that everyone has a different learning style and pace and I am willing to work with that. I have also learned how to manage emotions and nervousness where test taking in concerned. Athletically, I have played collegiate basketball for 4 years, been a part of 2 conference championship teams, and was elected captain in my senior year. I also grew up close to the game of baseball/softball and played recreationally for years.

Basketball

I have played collegiate basketball for 4 years, been a part of 2 conference championship teams, and was elected captain in my senior year at Brooklyn College.

College Counseling

I worked in the registrar's office for 3 yrs at Brooklyn College. I helped numerous students, inquiring about the completion of their graduation requirements, find out which courses they still needed to complete and help them make a plan to complete those requirements over there senior year in college. I have also helped incoming college freshmen, learn the ropes and the continuous cycle of administrative things they would need to complete as now a college student. Finally, I have given tours across Brooklyn College campus to help students become accumulated with the college to help relieve pressure they may face on the first day when they begin classes.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a special love for kids and I love helping them get excited about learning. I feel it is important for kids to get excited about learning and knowing the importance of education at a young age before their adolescent years, where they are going to meet additional pressures and distractions. If education has already become a priority for them, they will be more successful in maintaining interest when those distractions arise. I have also volunteered tutoring in a study hall program, offered at my church, tutoring kids of all ages, helping them complete homework assignments, projects, book reports, etc.
