Miss Taslima C. of Lorton VA USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Miss Taslima C.
Gender: Female   Age: 22-25
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

My broad and dynamic skill set, which includes eight semesters of TAing experience, extensive clinical exposure, and strong interpersonal and leadership skills makes me a highly qualified tutor. My greatest strengths are my communication skills, organization, and comprehensive exposure to professional and academic settings. My experiences as a teaching assistant (TA), clinical professional, student leader, and sophomore resident advisor have allowed me to develop the necessary interpersonal skills to interact effectively with students, peers, and patients. I learned about the inquiry method of teaching as an intern for the National Science Resources Center of the Smithsonian. I applied my practical knowledge on pedagogy as an undergraduate TA of Chemistry 141-142 labs and Clinical Research Practicum at Emory University, where I maintained a safe and efficient environment that was conducive to learning, taught class lessons, and consistently provided feedback to student so they could improve their performance in the course. My most rewarding teaching experience has been as a Crystals and Polymers TA for the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (JHU CTY), where I taught high-school level chemistry, geology, and biology to rising fifth- and sixth-grade students. This experience taught me how to effectively teach concepts that are completely foreign to my students through interactive lectures and demonstrations.

My experiences teaching in teaching elementary and college students in both lecture and lab settings have helped me develop my pedagogical, organizational, and interpersonal skills. For additional details, please feel free to contact me for further details. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to discussing what I have to offer.
