I have been passionate about teaching since I was a little girl teaching my teddy bears all day long. Now as a college student, some of the most profound and encouraging words I can recall came from my school teachers. I strongly believe that learning does not end when students leave the classroom. There may be times when a student may not be able to grasp the information as quickly as another student and may be afraid to ask their instructor for clarification. That was the case when I was a peer tutor at the Community College of Philadelphia. From that experience, I learned that many students learn better in a one on one atmosphere, free from distraction and in some cases, the fear of feeling "dumb" (as one of my former students said) when asking question aloud.
Younger children also benefit from personal interactions with tutors and this is why I am passionate about tutoring. I want to allow students the freedom to be who they are and learn at their own pace without judgments. I want students to eventually develop a passion for learning as I did and to realize that learning can be fun!
I took many English courses at Drexel University because I was thinking of changing my major to English. I excelled in all those courses. I also have a passion for reading, writing, vocabulary and spelling.
I am very easy going and will meet you wherever you are, in terms of your academic lessons. We will go over every difficulty until you are able to understand it!

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 am a political science major and I am in my senior year of college. I was also a political science research assistant and I have done many classroom projects in this subject. I am qualified to tutor this course because I excelled in all my political science courses and I am knowledgeable in that area.
