DePaul University (Political Science)
I've always been defined by my curiosity for new information. As long as I can remember I've enjoyed the process of learning, especially if I felt it was on my terms. I've been a voracious reader all my life, particularly of social science material. I was that kid who was obsessed with history class, outside of history class. Despite a willingness to learn, I was an average student in high school. I hadn't yet discovered how to merge my thirst for knowledge with the tools and strategies needed for today's students to succeed in any educational institution.
I took a year after college to live, work, and travel abroad. I had coursework while I was abroad, and the responsibilities fell fully on me to complete them. I had to develop my own structure to learn, organize, study, and present coursework. It wasn't easy but over the course of the year it taught me some valuable lessons about how to learn while simultaneously succeeding academically. I took those lessons with me to college, along with a renewed desire to see success in a structured environment. I received straight A's that first semester, a pattern that would continue throughout undergrad. Working across disciplines and subjects, some I loved, others I didn't, I continued to implement the set of tools I'd learned would allow me to reach my goals. When I graduated, it was summa cum laude highest honors, and with distinct honors in political science.
I realized too, there's reward in seeing others achieve success as well. Throughout my college tenure I was always the first to volunteer to put together a study group, take the lead on a project, or work with my fellow students to grapple with difficult material. I was a go to editor for written work too, many of my friends new I enjoyed editing papers and essays, so they sent me their material. These days, I find myself teaching others every day, in my job as a CrossFit coach, and I love it. Seeing others succeed is wonderful thing.

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.
