I also understand the pressure teachers are under in the public school system to stick to a rigorous lesson plan for their school year. Often times they have little extra time to spend with students one-on-one. I hope that by tutoring, I can help students not only do well in their classes but also maintain a passion for learning.
- When I was in high school I was hired as a tutor for the Moore Public Schools System. This program placed elementary- and junior-high-aged students who were either failing or almost failing classes with tutors to help them with homework and better understand their assignments.
- I was also a coach for about 9 years. While this isn’t necessarily educational tutoring, I feel that my experience working with groups of children like this helped me to understand different ways they enjoy learning. It also taught me a great deal of patience.
