While I contemplate going back to school to become a public school teacher, I want to offer my expertise to students in the form of tutoring. I've seen in my own life what a good education and solid study habits can do and I want to pass this on to our next generation.
In school I studied computer science and math, which has turned itself into a successful career as a software developer for an education technology company. While in school, I worked as a lab assistant for a few computer science courses. This involved me working closely with the professor to understand the task being set forth and then to assist students in finding the answers for themselves. Back in high school, I was in a Boy Scout troop and regularly took opportunities to teach various skills to younger scouts. I've always enjoyed imparting knowledge to someone else and empowering them to do it themselves.
It is my belief that the most effective way to tutor is to put forth problems that relate as much as possible to real life. This is relatively easy for computer science related subjects, but still very possible with mathematics subjects as well. I want students to not only learn, but be engaged in the process and see how a topic fits into the larger picture.
