Given the option, I would be a student for the rest of my life. Though this isn’t possible, the next best option is certainly teaching. I have a passion for sharing knowledge and insight with others, and I don’t want that to end simply because I am not in a conventional classroom.
Currently, I am a tutor at a tutoring company and I am completing private tutoring for students from age 9 to 25 in a variety of topics. With a bachelor of science in psychology and a minor in religious studies, my academic path has taken me across various disciplines and prepared me to tutor students in a wide variety of subjects. Recently, I gained experience teaching in the position of Copy Chief in our on-campus daily newspaper, The Battalion. I worked directly with writers, finding a way not only to improve the quality of their articles, but to also advance their understanding of interview techniques or style guidelines. Working with individual writers and watching them grow with each step they took was one of the most rewarding parts of my job, and one I hope to experience in my role as a tutor.
As a recent graduate of Texas A&M University, I know how important finding a personalized way of learning is for students. Thankfully, I was able to discover this and, as a result, graduated magna cum laude and as an undergraduate research scholar. I believe developing this personalized path for each student is vital to their success, and I will do everything possible to ensure the best plan for every student.
Because of my contract with the tutoring company I am employed by, I cannot instruct students K-12 in math only. I can, however, tutor students in that age range in any of the other subjects I am qualified for and any students outside of that age group.
If a student or guardian is not completely satisfied with their session, they will not be billed.
I look forward to working directly with my students to find their own path to academic achievement!
I recently graduated from Texas A&M with a minor in religious studies. Not only was I given instruction on the bible from a Jewish, Muslim, and Christian perspective, I also took courses related to various world religions. I am very comfortable with both the basic information and facts surrounding religious studies,as well as working to critically analyze the information given in the perspective of the given religion.
I have received extensive instruction on the English, science, mathematics, and history material that elementary-aged students are exposed to. I have experience working with younger children on topics ranging from nutrition to religious education. I was also employed as an Educational Program Assistant at a children’s museum, where I assisted in conducting programs for children of all ages. Currently, I am employed at Mathnasium and I am privately tutoring students, utilizing both elementary-appropriate material and forming personalized curriculum plans.
I recently graduated from Texas A&M with a minor in religious studies, where I took courses on Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Daoism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, the Yoruban religion, and other religions that formed out of the African diaspora in the Americas. I also took courses on the sociology and philosophy of religion, so I not only have a command of the material, but I have experience interacting with it and critically analyzing it. I also served as the Religion Editor for our campus newspaper, and worked to both understand the stories and beliefs of individuals and then communicate that information effectively with a large audience.
