I have been tutoring students since I was in high school. I began by tutoring Middle Level students in various subjects, as well as just being someone they could come to for any reason. Since then, I have worked for Upward Bound as a tutor, helping high school students in many different subjects, especially math. I started out my college career seeking a degree in Teaching Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers Social Studies. I took many courses on how adolescents learn best. I have since changed my degree to Psychology, realizing my place was not in the classroom, though I do still love working with children of all ages. With a Psychology degree, I have taken many developmental, as well as, Child and Adolescent Psychology classes. This has allowed me to gain a better understanding of children of all ages, and see things from their point of view, which I think is very important.
My approach to tutoring is that all students want to learn, even if they act otherwise. It is my job to make the subject more relevant, interesting and understandable for them. I assume everyone is capable of learning the material and try different ways of introducing and reinforcing information until it sinks in. I believe parents have a hard enough job, and it is sometimes best for someone else to tackle school subjects where the kids are not thriving. Kids often benefit from a fresh perspective and if their self-esteem is at all suffering from difficulties at school, having a new person involved in their lives can help them feel more confident again.
