Tutoring Style and/or Experience

My tutoring style involves much more than just recapping class notes and going over homeworks. I create additional problems, teach multiple techniques to solving a single problem, and work with the student to develop effective study habits. Every student is unique. Thus, I believe tutoring must cater to each individual student in order to reach them most effectively.

Learning and success involve the development of both technical and non-technical skills. The gratification of seeing a student do well on the exam we prepared for is nothing compared to the gratification of seeing that student find his/her passion and go off to a great school to pursue it. Getting good grades will of course help, but I encourage students to develop communication skills, organizational skills, and time management. I want students to do well not just on one exam but in life.

My passion for tutoring stems from my passion for learning. I strongly believe the best application of knowledge is the sharing of knowledge. There's a certain fulfillment one gets out of helping someone else, especially someone young. Tutors, teachers, coaches, etc. - whether they realize it or not, they all play the role of mentors as well. A good mentor can be a strong, positive influence on someone's childhood, helping to shape their future.
