The Joy of Tutoring

September marks 40 years since I drew up my first lesson plan at the age of ten for an ESL student who needed help in English, reading comprehension, math and study skills. By then I was blessed with a college reading level and felt extremely fortunate to have a formal opportunity to volunteer in helping my slightly younger peers. By twenty a college had hired me to tutor the accounting material I had learned the previous year to their accounting students who were failing the subject and from then on part-time tutoring became a portion of how I earned a living. To work my way through my own college experience, I added private clients who needed lessons in English or other subjects, and I rented commercial space to give art lessons to groups of five to fifteen. In fact, every school I ever went to and every employer put me at the front of a classroom at one time or another to share my skills. By now, my experience is tremendous and I still believe there is no better feeling than helping someone learn. I am particularly fond of joining WyzAnt as I find their system demonstrating consistent excellence in organization, and look forward to adding many happy and productive hours with students lucky enough to find this group.
