(FIU) Florida International University Miami, FL (Finance)
At an early age I developed an interest in helping my peers. In school, I usually finished my classwork first and spent the rest of the time helping others. My first involvement was in high school. I was appointed as an after-hours tutor. After a year of good progress I was promoted to supervisor, in that I was in charge of making sure all the tutors were being efficient.
My most successful and interactive experience was in Broward College. Here I pursued my tutoring certification. As a tutor in a large college, I was able to meet many people and work with a large variety of students. This is what made me learn the most. Having to work with different students of all ages and backgrounds was a challenge. My most valuable lesson was personalization.
When it comes to learning, everyone is different. There are so many different approaches to teaching that may be effective with one student and not so much with another. In order to achieve the best results with a student, let it be a private session or a walk in or open session, it is important to identify which method the particular student learns the best with. For example, some students learn faster by observing the tutor solve a similar exercise. Others may prefer to resolve problems on their own and by guided throughout the process. There are many different strategies a tutor may approach to improve the learning. Identifying the appropriate method is the first step to a successful tutoring session.
Throughout the entire session with the student, the tutor should in no circumstances should solve the problems or do the homework for the students. In this manner, the students will not learn and will leave the lab without a better understanding of the material. A tutor’s job is not to complete assignments for the student. A tutor’s goal should be to give the student the necessary tools and knowledge to complete the assignments by themselves.
If a tutor finds him or herself in an open session with multiple students at the same time, the tutor should provide an equal service to all. Walking around and making sure every student is being attended and splitting time among all in need of assistance will show that the tutor has an interest for all students equally.
Tutoring benefits everyone. It helps build bright students. Both the student and tutor have something to offer. Sometimes even the tutor will learn something from the experience. Everyone should take advantage of the service.

I have completed parts of my education overseas where I have had to apply Spanish and both English to my learning. I have tutored Spanish at Broward College in Florida for two years and I was very successful because of my ability to develop personalized teaching methods. Whether you're looking to learn Spanish or Master it, I will be here to guide you every step of the way.
