Energetic English and Basketball Tutor
Energetic English and Basketball Tutor
Tutoring and teaching students any skill, concept, or ideology can be both academically and personally rewarding to the tutor, student, and the student(s)' loved ones. Helping students reach their academic and personal goals take dedication, experience, and a personal touch that lets students know that they are valued and can succeed no matter the circumstances.
My dedication as a tutor, mentor, teacher, and basketball coach are embedded within the skills of me being dynamic, highly organized, and knowledgeable in all things I am involved. But my dedication to find ways to succeed and continue to persevere have become infectious and contagious; moreover, I have internalized my dedication to advise students that no matter what obstacles or adversity may stand in their way, if they stay dedicated and focused on their goals, they can become successful. Although dedication alone has helped me persevere through many challenges, experience has furthered my qualifications as a tutor, teacher, mentor and coach.
There is nothing in this world that can substitute experience. Even when dealing with adversity, the best teacher is experience. I have taught in both an elementary school setting via Teach for America, and a middle school setting via my student teaching practicum. Being a college graduate and currently enrolled in the Master's program to receive a degree in Secondary English, I have completed four straight semesters of receiving straight A's and have been recognized for exemplary writing skills. On the basketball front, I have coached girls basketball since 2004 and have won 20 or 30 championship games, one of which was the YBOA National Championship in 2006. Many of the students/athletes I have taught and coached have moved on to successful college careers. But I have exceptional writing knowledge, skills, and understanding; moreover, I have tremendous tutoring experience and have helped students increase their academic and personal outcomes. There obviously is not substitute for experience but when coupled with providing students with a personal touch, it makes it that much more connective, engaging, and rewarding.
In order to get the attention of any student(s), whether it be in a classroom setting, one-one-one setting, or on the basketball court, adding a personal touch can add a sense of connectivity, engagement, and value between the the teacher/tutor/coach and the student(s). I have had success with connecting with students of all diversities, backgrounds, and socio-economic status. Incorporating their favorite interests into lessons makes the activities engaging and fun, which students love. When students are engaged in a lesson or activity, their motivation, effort, and overall results tend to increase, which has an overall rewarding effect on their academic goals and objectives.
Overall, my goal is to bring a sense of determination to let students know that no matter the circumstances, they can achieve their goals. Next, by having the necessary experience with tutoring, teaching, and coaching, I am able to help students navigate through challenging academic and personal scenarios to help increase their self-efficacy so that they may internalize their abilities to reach the highest levels of success. Finally, by adding a personal touch to any lesson or activity, students are more engaged; more engagement by students means higher motivation and effort to reach their academic and personal goals, which becomes extremely rewarding. Opportunities to become a mentor, tutor, teacher, and a coach should be taken very seriously. By adding me to the WyzAnt family, you will be guaranteed to have one of the best "individuals", who cares not only about their desired needs expressed here, but about their overall success in life.
