In my undergrad, I worked as a resident advisor for three years. I helped incoming students acclimate to the college environment. One thing I realized was that most students did not come into college with the necessary study skills to succeed. I tried to remedy this through educational programming focused on the skills and mindset necessary for a successful college career. I also aided students one on one with personalized tutoring sessions. After receiving a master's degree in aerospace engineering, I have continued to tutor students from the middle school to college levels in math and physics. It is a job I enjoy and find very meaningful. Helping someone gain the skills they need to learn is something that will be used throughout their entire lives. I am glad that in my small way I can contribute to that. My tutoring method is to help students grasp their subject matter through examples from their own lives.

I would be glad to be that person. In my undergrad, I worked as a resident advisor for three years. I helped incoming students acclimate to the college environment.

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.
