Eagle Scout here!
I am an experienced tutor teaching subjects like algebra, biology, chemistry, Italian and even Drawing. I am a current student at Temple University who has great interest in studying education for middle school and high school students.
My passion for math and science has given me a strong analytical mind that is essential to success and growth in life. I am finding more and more as I get older that critical thinking is rarely taught and greatly needed. I feel that getting experience teaching students one on one is the best way for me to have an immediate impact. This will especially help to personalize the teaching experience and is an effective way to create a trusting relationship. I am especially personable and I know I have the ability to inspire students to have success beyond their expectations.
I believe that the best approach for teaching is to help students conceptualize some seemingly abstract topics in these subjects. Most of the time students get hung up on language or complex symbols used in math and science when the key to understanding is simply being able to look beyond those things and visualize something physical. I promote using some imagination when looking at these topics, especially in algebra. When someone can understand how a concept is working then they can apply it to solve a whole range of problems and most memorization will be unnecessary. This approach will help aid students to achieve a higher understanding of these subjects and it will promote critical thinking.
For those students interested in art, I have studied art for nearly 6 years including 2D design, 3D design, Painting, Printmaking, Drawing, Portfolio Focus, Portraits, and abstract medium use. My current passion is charcoal drawing and I have completed a few dozen pieces in hopes to compile a future gallery.
