About Charity

I realized potential for teaching when I volunteered as a tutor at my high school back in Fall 2008. During my quest to share my knowledge with my fellow classmates as well as my underclassman, I worked closely with teachers and parents to ensure that the student received the best learning experience possible. By the time I graduated high school in Spring 2010, I had averaged 30 hours per semester of volunteer tutoring.

After graduation, my professors recommended me for a position as a tutor for the school district. I would tutor groups of students in whichever subject they needed help in. However, rather than simply giving the students the answers, I would guide the group discussion through leading questions in order to allow the students to arrive at their own conclusions. In addition to this, I have also done private tutoring where I arrived at the student’s home at agreed dates and times. I have never found a position in which I am more proud than the moment that my students gets the “ah-ha” look on their face.

I specialize in tutoring K-12, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus 1, Calculus 2, as well as SAT math. Regardless of which subject we are working on, I aim to help the student build the necessary foundation in order to understand not only when we should use certain steps, but also why. I believe that a strong foundation is a necessary component to achieve success.

I enjoy working with individual students in order to ensure that the student feels comfortable and thus able to ask questions without fear. I feel that I will be able to accomplish more since I will be able to cater difficult questions to their individual personalities and preferences. In my experience, it is always easier to remember something if you have a positive thought that goes with it.

I always regard my students with kindness. I am patient and understanding of their individual learning abilities. I always try to find different ways to teach students since I understand that every student is unique and what works for one student may not work for another. As I’ve mentioned above, I will do my best to ensure that the student will have a solid foundation prior to attempting any difficult problem. I am optimistic that my various techniques with be successful in bring the light of understanding to a students eyes.

I am very flexible in regards to scheduling. I do ask that I receive a 24 hour notice for cancellations.

I am willing to travel. I recommend that the location is a quiet and comfortable place in order for the student to focus and understand the material without any unnecessary distractions.

I look forward to working with you and your student and helping them succeed!
