Georgia State University (Biology)
One of the few constants in life is learning. Regardless of how old we are or what we do, our progress is hindered the day we stop learning. I graduated with B.S. in Biology from Georgia State University and I'm currently shadowing a doctor and in the process of applying to medical schools. Rather than just waiting around or doing pointless jobs, I felt that I should impart the knowledge that I have gained to the future of this country.
As far as tutoring experience goes, I am currently helping tutor 2 people for their MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) but more importantly, I have a sister who is four years younger than me who I have been tutoring for over a decade. I am receptive and I understand that everyone learns differently so what might come easy to one person might be challenging to another. Therefore it's important to be patient and try a different approach if one does not work. I do not think of helping someone learn as a job, but rather as a moral responsibility.
I have always been an avid reader. As a kid, I used to get in trouble for reading with a flashlight under the covers when I was supposed to be sleeping. I strongly believe that kids at young age should be handed books instead of tablets and smart phones. Reading a book not only enhances vocabulary but more importantly, it enhances the abilities of imagination which is extremely vital in brain development. As Albert Einstein said: "Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand." Therefore, I understand the importance of imparting the habit of reading at a young age.
Ever since I was young, I was always very curious about how things happen and why they happen. While some people did get annoyed with my barrage of questions, I was fortunate to have people in my life who appreciated my curiosity and patiently answered all my questions. I plan on doing the same with my students. I strongly believe that science is more about asking the right questions than knowing the right answers. Having an extensive background in science, I consider myself to be well equipped to help my students in all aspects of science.
I took Calculus BC in high school and excelled the AP exam with a 4 and I have taken up to Calculus II in college as well but I strongly believe in polishing the fundamentals. The biggest tree cannot withstand a storm if its roots are not strong enough. Having weathered plenty of storms thus far in my career and with plenty more in my horizon, I can confidently say that it's vital to have a strong foundation. That is the primary reason why I am choosing to tutor in elementary Math, Reading and Science.

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.
