Rosemont College, Rosemont PA (Graduate Coursework)
Although being a young tutor, I would say I have gained a lot of experience over the years learning about tutoring and the tutoring process. I have engaged myself in a lot of tutoring programs whether it was through Reading Area Community College's Upward Bound Program where I helped Reading High School students with basic study skills, or whether it was through Albright College working in the writing center, or serving as a tutor in English and Literature and Spanish.
As far as my tutoring methods go, I like to see my tutees learn the material and become confident in telling me what they know. I do not believe in the strategy of trying to teach and then do everything for the tutor. My tutoring approach is centered around giving my tutee the tools necessary to succeed, and for them to actually be able to teach me in the end of their session what they learned. My tutees may be needing help in a specific subject area, but what I hope I succeed after all is done- is that my tutees become experts in the area which they once struggled.

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.
I have played chess from 9th grade all the way up to where I am today- a graduate from college. I think chess is not only a very fun game, but it allows one to think critically and become a more tactful and strategic learner. I would definitely be willing to help out anyone trying to learn the game or become more advanced playing it.
I have helped out at 13th and Union Elementary School in Reading, Pennsylvania for the four years during my undergraduate studies at Albright College. Each year, I spent my time working with the kindergarten class helping them out with learning different sounds, writing, and even math. I absolutely love working with younger kids, and I feel if they are given the right teaching approach, they can sometimes have more energy to learn than most people.
