What I enjoy most about tutoring is applying my critical thinking skills in ways that assist my student to achieve his or her goals.

What I enjoy most about tutoring is applying my critical thinking skills in ways that assist my student to achieve his or her goals. Implicit in this assistance is identifying the student’s obstacles to a specific task, understanding the nature of these obstacles, and crafting an appropriate response to assist the student in overcoming these obstacles. Along the way, I enjoy answering students’ questions precisely and helping them to see their problems or their assignments from a different perspective. Ultimately, I hope to identify the student’s general obstacles to learning and, through our experience over time, assist them in being able to enjoy learning about new and difficult subjects.

Personally, as a first-generation college student, I have had to learn these strategies on my own, often without a tutor close to my age. There were many times where I wished someone my age could explain to me how to approach really complex homework assignments, or to contextualize college applications in ways that made sense to me. My experience overcoming these difficulties has forged my capacity to package my experience in ways that will be relevant and helpful to my students. It is my hope that I can help students to achieve clarity for themselves, a kind of clarity that will help them to make respectful, intelligent, and insightful decisions about how they want to learn.
