Temple University (Marketing)
I have over 200 hours experience tutoring at the Fox Business Communication Center, where we teach writing that is Clear, Concise, and Compelling. After tutoring for a year, I was promoted to the position of coordinator, where I was able to research foundational principles of writing to improve our new tutor training process. By training over a dozen tutors, I gained a new depth of understanding about the tutoring process and how to create great outcomes for students.
My passion for tutoring comes from my insatiable curiosity about the world. I love helping students reach new levels of understanding about how things work and how they can maximize their potential for success. My biggest assets as a tutor are my abilities to put things simply and clearly, to create interesting examples, and to break up tasks into digestible parts.
Math has always come naturally to me, from being placed in advanced courses as early as sixth grade to performing statistical analysis as a Marketing major. But memorizing formulas was never good enough-- I always needed to know why we use this formula or that formula, and how those were derived. Because I developed such a deeply intuitive understanding of mathematical concepts, I can always find new ways of explaining them to help those who struggle. I firmly believe that if we know the concept, the reasoning, we can always figure out the rest.
A mentor of mine once reflected that reading someone's writing is like seeing through a window into the mind. My tutoring experience has given me the powerful ability to see writing on many levels, to look past the technical and stylistic qualities and grasp the underlying thought process. I have found that connecting with students on this higher level helps us quickly develop a rapport and build trust. This lays the groundwork for real, durable knowledge students can take with them far into the future.

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.
