During my final semester at Florida International University, I was part of the "Writing as a Social Action" service learning class where I had the opportunity of mentoring high school sophomores in writing and argumentative skills. During this meeting, the twelve students were able to meditate on several topics learned throughout the "Education Effect" program, which lasted about twelve weeks.

During my final semester at Florida International University, I was part of the "Writing as a Social Action" service learning class where I had the opportunity of mentoring high school sophomores in writing and argumentative skills. During this meeting, the twelve students were able to meditate on several topics learned throughout the "Education Effect" program, which lasted about twelve weeks. Some of the topics were about whether education is a right or a privilege, bullying, and writing through blogging (which I facilitated). After thinking about the lessons learned, the students transmitted their thoughts in writing through the online blog site, which was a first-time experience for the majority of them.

Prior to the general meeting I facilitated, I would meet with two students on a weekly basis to assist and mentor them on their writing and reasoning skills. An article was published regarding the service learning program, which includes my name. In addition to tutoring adolescents, I have also tutored elementary level students in several school subjects. Tutoring and mentoring students is a tremendous personal and professional satisfaction. It is a rewarding experience to see how students progress while receiving guidance from myself, as a tutor and mentor.

My teaching style is student centered. As a tutor and mentor, I have learned that allowing students to engage in activities that develop the skills being taught creates a higher level of cognitive processing and problem solving skills, as oppose to just defining concepts. Ultimately, my teaching style is adaptable to the student's personality and their best learning practices. Some students are visual, active, or auditory learners. For instance, some students like to listen to the lesson and by doing so, they can quickly learn and retain skills. Others like to see an example of the skills being taught. By visualizing the example, their brain can translate the concept from theory to practice. Some students like to engage in activities while learning, such as walking while reading. As a tutor, I would facilitate and adapt to the student's learning style.
