There are many reasons why people choose to tutor. Mine has everything to do with my love for knowledge sharing and the joy I get from being part, albeit in the background, of individuals' success stories with academic work. Throughout my life, I have been engaged in active tutoring, though not for money in most situations. Starting from when I was in high school where I was always tutoring colleagues, to my college days where my room was the stop for most people with course difficulties, I have developed the knack for finding the right mix of strategies and confidence endearing relationships to help people go through academic materials they otherwise find tough.
Currently, I am providing voluntary tutorial for some adult college students and they are completely satisfied with the progress we are making together in areas where they thought they were not going to be able to make it. I love academic challenges and enjoy surmounting them; I look out for my students to have the same attitude. Attitude alone, however, does not produce the result. Knowing what ought to be known comes from knowing where and how to gather relevant information from even the most convinient of information sourses. This is where my strongest ability is: to navigate with the people I tutor to extract information that end up becoming part of them.
My decision to study special education and teach in that field comes from the willingness to help with the making of learning and information processing for functional purposes possible for all people.
