##### About Jimmy

Hello everyone!

My name is Jimmy and I am currently serving in West Philadelphia as an Americorps member for City Year. City Year is a one year educational non-profit based in a school setting. I work with underprivileged 8th grade students every single day in a math classroom. I am responsible for tutoring these students in groups and in one on one situations. I use an "I do, we do, you do" model to make sure the understanding we want is present.

I believe the best way to approach tutoring is to become a "frien-tor-oach" - A combination of a friend, a mentor, and a coach. People learn best form someone they like and are comfortable around. Someone who they have common interests with and can relate to. I have become friends with all of my students and have established lasting relationships. I try my best to be a mentor and a coach every day to teach values my students can take with them to the next level. I learn from them as well; I learn that no student can honestly be taught the exact same way and be 100% effective, so I like to understand best how my students learn. I love giving students the opportunity to learn and reach new heights they may not have thought were possible.

I have spent a full year tutoring every single day in an 8th-grade math classroom. We have covered topics from Pythagorean theorem, to functions, to probability. I have learned to use different types of visuals and real life examples that make learning the material very simple and applicable. My probability examples may include; decks of cards, marbles, winning the lottery, dice, and more. Letting the students become hands on in an activity based setting increases learning and will allow them to teach back the material.

I was a marketing major at Penn State University and obtained two marketing internships while I was in college. This includes understanding in retail, non-profits, marketing, management, video production, sales, and advertising.

I have played basketball my entire life and I have coached the 8th-grade basketball club in West Philadelphia. I give all of my players time and chances to grow and enhance their skills. Drills are fun yet competitive and based off of real NBA practices.

If my student does not feel like they are prepared after my tutoring session, I will come back for free until they feel like they are satisfied. I hold myself to an extremely high standard and I really appreciate any feedback I am given. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy as well.

My goal in life is to help others; that is what I am here for. I look forward to helping you further your education and help you with your studies!
