Rutgers University (graduating in May) (Social Work)
I've had several teaching and tutoring jobs throughout my life. From the time I was 16, I was tutoring students for the GED exam (even without my own diploma at that time). I also was an assistant teacher at my local religious school before going to college. Since coming to Rutgers, I've been working through a program called TutoringPlus, serving as a tutor and mentor for children in the New Brunswick school system. This year, I was even promoted to be the supervisor of the other tutors at the facility.
Ever since my first teaching job, I loved it. The first time you see a breakthrough with a student, it's unforgettable. I believe my communication and educational skills have developed over the past 5 years, and I want to continue to develop them further.
I've tutored in all of these math subjects several times, and usually have great results with my students. I had a lot of trouble with math in middle school and early high school, which makes it easy to relate to students' troubles.
I am a Psychology & Social Work double major and have done exceptional in the majority of my coursework. The social sciences have a lot of overlapping information, and they're my favorite subjects.
I have tons of public speaking experience. I've given several speeches, along with performing my music in front of audiences of up to 400.
I am very excited to meet new students and gain more experience tutoring. I've had several teaching and tutoring jobs throughout my life.

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 been tutoring elementary school math for over three years. I currently am a supervisor in an organization at Rutgers which sends college students out to work with elementary school children in the local area on various subjects, the most frequent being math and English.
I have been working as a tutor at Rutgers University for the past four years, working with younger students in the area. This year, I was promoted to the supervisor of my tutoring program. I have also worked with GED students for the English/essay portion of their exam. I am a Dean's List student studying Social Work, which consists of mainly essays instead of exams, so my writing skills are very high. I am also the Vice President of the largest poetry collective at Rutgers.
I tutor middle school students in prealgebra and algebra at the New Brunswick Free Public Library quite often. In addition, I also tutor GED students who are preparing for the math portion of their exam, which consists mostly of prealgebra and algebra 1.
