Wake Forest University (Psychology)
My interest in teaching comes from my love of sharing knowledge and my fascination with how the mind works. I'm currently an undergraduate student at Wake Forest University class of 2018 and I am majoring in psychology with minors in statistics, writing, and linguistics. I often say I have trouble defining my favorite areas of study because I love to draw connections between different disciplines. My peers characterize me as outgoing, patient, and compassionate.
To me, it is important that students are encouraged to approach challenging material with a positive attitude and realize that they have the potential to tackle any subject despite any previous setbacks. Therefore it is my goal to allow students to feel comfortable asking questions and taking risks on new material without worrying about getting something wrong. Ultimately, I want to help students to feel confident in their academics.
I tutor math topics up to a 12th grade level and am skilled at helping students learn how to approach unfamiliar math concepts. I am also skilled in helping students discover a writing process that works for them individually. I have found that the most important part of writing is knowing how to begin a writing assignment that may seem too broad or complex at first. I am glad to help students brainstorm for writing assignments, revise writing assignments, or learn a process of for writing in an academic setting at any level.
For younger students, I tutor reading skills, grammar, and elementary math. I have a passion for working with children and I love to convey an optimistic attitude towards learning.
I do not have formal experience tutoring but I regularly help peers with understanding class concepts and assignments, especially with written assignments and breaking down math problems. My style of tutoring is casual and communicative as well as structured and aimed towards guiding students to find answers to their questions. My goal as a tutor is to help students master a topic and learn to think dynamically to see how that subject is important, even if it may not be their favorite.
Before a first session, I offer a free consultation to discuss learning goals and areas of interest. I always make sure to review material for myself before any session and I take feedback very seriously, I love to know how I can be a better aid. I am asking for $40 per hour but am willing to accept a lower rate depending on the job/distance. Also, I prefer to meet in a public setting such as a library or school setting (I'm flexible on location depending on what atmosphere a student prefers).
Please contact me with any questions. I am very thrilled to have the opportunity to help students find success in their studies!

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.
