Hello! My name is Jemma and I am a current student at St. Olaf College where I am in my third year, studying Social Studies Education. I actually have just since switched to the Social Studies Education major and prior to that, I was a psychology and biology double major with a neuroscience concentration. As to my tutoring approach, I myself have used many tutors throughout my time in both high school and college which has significantly shaped how I interact with students. I have always found that tutoring is most helpful when the tutor is willing to work with the student to find the right combination of learning style and balance between practice and teaching. Tutors, just like teachers have to be very adaptable in what they are willing and able to teach. I bring this principle of adaptability to all the students I tutor. In addition to adaptability, I think it is part of the tutor’s responsibility to keep the student engaged in the material that they are learning. This is where the adaptability comes into play as each student is different in terms of what will keep the student engaged.

I have tutored for both the AVID program during my high school years as well as TA’d for classes which also required me to tutor individual students in differing subjects. I am well versed in more than one style of note-taking and am happy to work with students on finding the best way to study for them. In college, I have been tutoring Mandarin for elementary schoolers for the last year as well as become a part of the Science Alliance Club. The Science Alliance Club goes into the local elementary school to teach the students about different aspects of science using a combination of storytelling and hands-on projects. In addition to this directly related experience, over this last summer, I also taught my own classroom of 7th and 8th graders with a co-teacher at the SF SPCA Animal Camp. I have also had extensive experience starting in 2017 helping lead, co-leading and leading different summer camp activities and programs. All o
