I am currently employed by Fort Bend Independent School District as an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) Tutor. I tutor high school students in all ranges of subjects, but my specialties include English (both Pre-AP/Honors, AP, and non-Honors), Biology (Honors/Pre-AP and regular), Chemistry (Honors/AP and regular), Psychology (AP and regular), Sociology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Algebra I. I attended a Fort Bend ISD high school, am enrolled in college, and plan on earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
During high school, I was a member of the Academic Speech and Debate team for three years, so my communications skills are extensive. Through my experiences on the Speech Team, I learned how to explain ideas thoroughly and persuasively.
At my job, I primarily work with students in groups. However, I prefer working with individual students because I can accomplish more with the student. I get to know each student individually and use their personality preferences and interests to find relevant and interesting analogies and explanations to help them comprehend and reinforce difficult concepts.
I approach students with kindness, patience, and understanding. I break information down into the simplest terms possible and give them helpful tips on how to remember and retain information. I have an optimistic and determined attitude at all times in every aspect of my life, including helping students. I have a sense of humor and enjoy humming or singing in my free time.
