Mathematics is my passion. Anytime I get a chance, I use it. I plan on aiding others in math in my career as a math teacher. After teaching for some years, I plan on opening my own math learning center, so I can continue to do what I love. Three things I believe every tutor should have are patience, poise, and practice. Patience is key because, there will be times where the student just does not understand. There will be much repetition, wanting to give up, and negative retaliation. But, as a tutor, we must show them that we believe in them no matter how long it takes for them to overcome and understand. Poise is necessary, because students need to know that we are there to be positive for them. Oftentimes, we need to convince them that they can do it on their own. We need to be their personal cheerleaders. We need to be positive in our pupils. Lastly, we need practice. If we cannot actively teach our students because we cannot remember, it takes away from the students learn and us as well. We need to consistently be able to teach or tutor whenever the opportunity strikes.
Each tutoring experience brings a new challenge and pushes me to try new things in order to ensure my student gets the best help. I've been tutoring voluntarily and/or for pay since 10th grade. I have worked as a Teacher's Assistant for College Algebra and Calculus 2, as well. There have been plenty of times when I have been praised for my assistance. However, I did nothing but simply supplied the student another way of looking at something they do not understand. That's how math works. Most of the time there is only one right answer. But, oftentimes, there are multiple ways of getting that answer. Just like life, in general. If you do not understand one way, we will try another.
What makes me an outstanding tutor is that I refuse to give up on a student. If I give up, students will give up on themselves.
If anyone is interested in my services, I will bow to help you to the best of my abilities. I will make sure you are comfortable
