Bio

My name is Jolinda. I'm 22 years old and a recent graduate of Oglethorpe University with a BA in English. I have tutored mainly and extensively on a volunteer basis with fellow college students at Oglethorpe, but I do have a few monetary tutoring experiences.

My name is Jolinda. I'm 22 years old and a recent graduate of Oglethorpe University with a BA in English. I have tutored mainly and extensively on a volunteer basis with fellow college students at Oglethorpe, but I do have a few monetary tutoring experiences. Overall, I have been told that I am quite good at explaining things to others and making them think about it in such a way that they will learn it, not just memorize it. I believe in explaining a concept as many times as necessary until I believe the learner has the basic concept, then completing a period of trial and error, letting the learner repeat back to me what they think and allowing them to use what I just taught them in an instructional manner. From there I would move on if it is correct, or reteach the concept if necessary. This way, the simple "parrot back what I said" or "nod and smile" techniques that many learners pick up will not be effective, they will actually have to learn what I am attempting to teach. Given my major, my primary teaching skill is with English, reading, and writing. I am more than proficient in all of the previous and can work with anyone on any level. Also, I am quite good at most maths, sciences, and histories at the high school level or lower, with notable exceptions being calculus and physics. Last but not least, my minor at Oglethorpe was psychology and while I have had less experience tutoring this subject than the others, I believe I would be a good tutor in the subject, provided the course is not too advanced or involves extensive research methods.
