I originally went to school to be a journalist. I love the excitement of being the first person to tell a newsworthy story. However, my mom did not like the idea of her 18 year old living in Washington DC alone. So, I went to a smaller school and studied English. However, I hated the school and left after 1 year. Around my Sophomore year, I worked at a private school for Special Education. I quickly became in love with working with students and also fell in love with the education field. I mostly worked with students 10-14 years old and assisted them with their homework. This not only benefited them but me as well. I was able to relearn information that I had not been taught in years. Sometimes, the students and I learned together as well. I was around 20 years old when I worked at the private school. A lot of times, students asked why they needed to learn a certain subject. Or, they asked the question of how this will be useful 15 years from now. I loved being able to to explain how subjects learned in school are vital for the real world. I have also worked as a Special Education paraprofessional as well as an academic advisor for a university. I love education and I believe in the positive impact that education has on a student's life. I believe that learning can be fun and also adjusted to meet individual student needs. It is important to know what type of learner a student is to ensure they are learning in the manner that suites them best.

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.
