University of California, Davis (Anthropology)
Hello all potential tutees! My name is Danielle and I am a recent graduate from UC Davis with a B.A. in Anthropology. For three out of my four college years, I worked as a writing and anthropology tutor, helping peers to navigate university curriculum and life. My work experience has allowed me to develop great communication skills in one-on-one environments. I also worked as a teaching assistance in our university bridge program (STEP), acting as a grader and even leading a couple of classes on topics of grammar and literature analysis. Although I enjoy tutoring grammar and English, I have always loved engaging in thought provoking tutoring sessions on analytical topics, such as literature, anthropological topics, etc.
I believe that my job as a tutor has opened up paths for my pursuit in helping others in education. There are so many factors that affect learning, and I am very invested in exploring and learning to navigating these factors to ensure a positive learning experience. On a personal level, I have been able to develop both superficial and committed relationships with those I have tutored while trying to provide a positive experience. I have learned to connect with others in a fast-paced environment, and in a more long-term tutor/tutee relationship. The ability to meet and connect with so many people throughout tutoring has been the most rewarding part of my experience. What can I say? I am a people person. I love meeting and helping others, and in a tutoring environment, guiding them to the realization of their potential and abilities.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I declared anthropology as my major my first year of college (2010) and have spent the past four years learning methods and theories, as well as the history of anthropology. I have extensive knowledge of both past and current anthropological issues and studies circulating them. It is a great passion of mine.
I received a B.A. in Anthropology from UC Davis, and as a branch of it, archaeology was frequently present in my university education. I took a class solely on the practices of archaeology and its history. If chosen to tutor this subject, I will help the student in areas of tools and practices used by archaeologists, as well as the many significant discoveries and current issues in the topic.
