About Sohini

Hello!
I am currently a fourth year Psychology major at the University of California, Riverside hoping to help some eager elementary students better their abilities in English, Reading Comprehension and Math.

As a student, I understand the hardships that follow with challenging classes. As a tutor, I hope to make my students as comfortable as possible with asking questions because I feel that there is no room to progress without eradicating uncertainty. Growing up, my parents gave me the opportunity to work with a tutor after school on my most troublesome courses because I was not performing as well as I wanted to on my own. At first, I felt that having a tutor was an indication of my intelligence...or lack there of. For some reason, I thought that because none of my friends had tutors and I did, I was a failure and was not going to flourish in life. During the first meeting, my tutor and I devised a plan to help me overcome the many obstacles that were standing in my way before I could become the exceptional student I knew I was. Then, once I started meeting with my tutor on a regular basis and we implemented those personalized tactics into my learning, I noticed a spike in my grades immediately following the first few tests. The feeling I got from finally performing to my standards was exhilarating and it pushed me to work harder during and outside my tutoring sessions. Because I was no longer feeling frustrated with myself as a student, I found myself flying through exams without the anxiety that came with not knowing the material. As you can see, I had a very positive experience with my tutor and by using the strategies I picked up over the years, I only hope to have the same experience with my students. Considering every person marches to the beat of his or her own drum, I know that the speed of how long it takes a person to grasp a concept is irrelevant when looking at their full potential; sometimes, the smartest of the group are the ones who need a little extra encouragement before they can exceed even their own expectations.
