Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this! My name is Louise T. I have a passion for education and literacy, and feel honored to be a part of a program that will allow me to share these gifts with students. I am on the Dean's List at my college, which means I maintain at least a 3.5 GPA. This shows that I am dedicated and have a wonderful work ethic. I have a lot of experience working with children, especially ages 9-18 as a conference assistant youth director for a youth program. During the school year, I also teach workshops each Friday for NYC 9th graders through an organization called Peer Health Exchange. I have experience leading workshops with adults, as well.
As a Psychology major, I have actually learned scientifically researched learning (and therefore teaching/tutoring) methods. A part of my course requirements, as well as personal interest, is understanding how the brain consolidates information. My holistic understanding comes from understanding memory storage functions in the brain combined with how social factors and personality of the student contribute to the learning experience. Simply put, the tutoring will be catered to each student specifically, because each student learns in their own way. This means I will be working WITH the student to create the best personalized experience possible.
