My informal teaching experience started in 2003, when I tutored struggling students at my high school during study hall. Looking back, I now have 7 years of formal teaching experience in the healthcare sector. My students ranged from 7 year old children to nursing students. I also taught in Statistics. In undergrad, I was chosen from a class of over 500 to be the Teaching Assistant for Statistics 101 the subsequent semester (2007). Furthermore, I volunteer tutored refugee children with limited English skills (2008), and I completed tutoring training for ESL adult literacy (2009).
In terms of testing scores, I scored above the 90th percentile on the quantitative and verbal sections of the GRE. I also scored a 32 on the ACT with a 35 on the English test. Test-taking has always been a fun challenge for me, and I enjoy motivating students to have that same attitude.
I believe I am an effective teacher for several reasons. Through social work training and teaching experience, I have developed a great deal of patience for struggling students. I believe I have a gift for understanding unique learning styles and personal strengths and catering towards those traits. Furthermore, at my core, I'm a coach. I feel most satisfied when I know I've helped someone achieve a goal.
