I may not have much formal experience with teaching (I'm still 21 and in college as well), but I have a wealth of knowledge that I'd like to share with my potential students. I am good with English and writing, having gotten good grades in these subjects when I was in high school, and I feel that it is my best subject overall. I feel all of these subjects have a major impact on children and are important skills to teach to young people these days, as some children don't usually take the time to fully read a text, preferring to read the Cliff Notes version instead as they just can't understand the text- either through the fault of the teacher, laziness, or just taking more time then the others to truly comprehend the text.

As for my tutoring methods, I'd try to go over everything thoroughly and take time to explain if anyone has any questions, as I feel it's better to do that then to expect everyone immediately gets it in the exact same way. I'd try to be fair and as non-partial as I could, as that could easily breed resentment among the other classmates. I also take time to find ways to make the lessons really connect to students, as sometimes students don't see how Shakespeare or Dickens connect to their everyday lives. But if parallels between the stories and the student's lives can be brought out into the open, students can find a greater appreciation of these works.

I hope this helps you!
