I am a recent graduate from Long Island University. I have earned a B.A in English with a minor in Psychology. I have many goals in life and one of them is to become an Elementary school teacher. This semester I have enrolled in the Graduate program in the same University, to pursue my dream of becoming a teacher. I couldn't be more excited! The journey I will be taking as I pursue my Masters in Childhood Education will be a memorable one. Why? Because I'll be surrounded by children every semester and gain all the experience I need to be a great teacher myself one day. I am very motivated and full of ambition and will show my interest in working with children through tutoring.
I also want to take full advantage of my English bachelors and write my own novel. I have also been a huge admirer of the publishing and editing industry, so I hope one day I get the privilege to work or be an intern in such company while being a teacher as well. Anything is possible if we set our minds to it!
Relating to tutoring, I have always loved being around students. Education is really important to me, so I feel that when certain students are having trouble with subjects like Math, English or even Spanish, we need to find a way in helping them to improve. I have a couple of examples in which I have worked around children.
In one case, during my freshmen year in college, I had an internship in Manhattan where I tutored Elementary school kids. I loved it. Children seem to interact with me and understand how much I wanted them to do better. My second example would be during my third year in high school. I had to do 72 hours of community service. So, I decided to do them in the elementary school I graduated from in 2000. I was so happy, I have no words to describe how I was feeling. I was an after school assistant where I helped 4th and 5th graders with their homework. When the students did not understand something, I would break down the problem, or reading, and explain it to them thoroughly.
I am very close to children, and I am positive that once I give them my attention and help, little by little they will start to do better. I want to be that person who listens to them and knows how to take care of the situation in order to make them better at what they are currently struggling with.
