University of Georgia (Public Relations)
I am a 4th year student at the University of Georgia. I have a lot of experience tutoring kids in elementary through high school. Before I moved to college, I did a lot of tutoring (homeschooling, math, language arts, science, and social studies) for neighborhood kids as well as volunteering at church and school. When I got to college, I was able to participate in WIT (Whatever It Takes) which is a tutoring program at the University of Georgia. We tutored elementary/middle school students at the community centers.
Personally, I enjoy seeing a student finally understand some thing I am teaching them. That "AH HA" moment is awesome to witness! Also, I am able to enhance my communication skills because I must effectively explain a subject to someone who does not understand. When educating a student, people sometimes forget that patience is key. I put myself in the students' shoes and remind myself what it feels like not to understand a topic. From there, I break down the information by gauging the level of understanding he or she already has and building from there. At the end of the lesson, the student should be able to have enough understanding of the subject matter to explain it back to me.
In my own academic career, I was an honor student throughout grade school. All of the math classes I took in high school were AP. I came to UGA with almost all of my prerequisite math classes completed, and I scored a 31 on the Math ACT. Furthermore, writing is my life. I have enjoyed writing since I was in elementary school. My teachers always urged me to pursue it further, and both of my English college professors urged me to pursue creative writing classes and change my major (which at the time was Biology and Psychology). I have always been enthusiastic about learning, and it has shown in my grades (graduated high school with a 3.94).
Feel free to contact me for more information! I am super friendly and outgoing, and I am sure we will have a great time learning together and seeing progress!

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.
