Tutor Personal Information

Name: Christine S.
Gender: Female   Age: 22-25
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Throughout my undergraduate education, I spent several hours a week tutoring college students. This experience allowed me to develop an effective teaching method that involves putting myself in the place of the student, thinking what do I want to learn and how will I be able to comprehend and retain what is being taught. I think through the various tools or props that I might need to present to the students to help them learn and retain whatever concept I am teaching. I also developed a skill of explaining topics in a variety of ways because everyone learns differently.
In addition to tutoring, I was a teaching assistant during my senior year of college and in graduate school. Here, I discovered the key to teaching was bringing enthusiasm to the class. If Im not excited about the subject, how will the students become excited about it? I want my students to want to learn and do well! My goal is to have every student walk out of a session understanding, retaining and ready to apply the subject matter. I encourage the students to setup additional time for extra help if needed. I understand that things dont necessarily come easy for everyone.
