While in High School, I was involved in the Peer Tutoring program. Although I had already been involved with the several other programs, I knew from an early age that a Special Education teacher was what I wanted to do. Helping students achieve their goals and help them to succeed in life was my true calling. But the desire to help the most challenged student drove me beyond regular education. The memories of my Peer tutoring experience kept me striving to be a
I believe in giving students their best chance at success. Toward that end, I am eager to put my educational skills to use by serving Chautauqua Striders as a tutor and I am ready to step into this role immediately. My content specialty is mathematics and I would be comfortable tutoring grades K-12 so I am interested in both positions listed on your website: Elementary / Middle School Tutor and After-school Tutors @ Chautauqua Striders. My younger sister, Tiffany Jager, tutored for Chautauqua Striders prior to attending Caltech and it is because of this connection that I learned about this opportunity through word of mouth. Mathematics has been my favorite subject since childhood, and throughout my education I discovered my desire and
Throughout the A+ Tutoring Program I have acquired numerous skills that have made me a better person. I am going to be honest, I have never really cared for children and I would consider myself a selfish person when it comes to other people's feelings. The Program has changed my outlook on things and I have learned to be sincere and patient when it comes to ALL of my second graders. In my opinion I have learned a skill from each kid in my class. They have taught me to always be alert because anything can happen in that room in a matter of seconds. To handle a situation I have obtained the skill of always remaining calm when something drastic happens. The only way to conquer a situation is by attacking it head on and solving the issue quickly
I have an diligent passion for assisting and supporting others of different cultures and heritages. I have volunteered on countless community and school events during the past two years. Currently, I contain more than 120 hours of community service and school service. In my school, New Tech High, we have a graduation requirement where the student must have completed 20 hours of community service and 10 hours of school service. I have exceeded my school hours by 50 hours and a half, while I overly exceeded my community hours by more than 71 hours. This has affected my outlook by providing me more opportunities as well as being noticed by the community. Currently,in my senior year, I have been helping coordinate event opportunities for the students
It was important to me as a tutor that every driven individual understood the material taught in class. After several weeks of tutoring, I noticed many students struggled to complete their assignments simply because they did not have the assistance available at home. I came to a solution by connecting with them through
I am a FDOE certified teacher and have been a tutor for 20 years. Throughout that time I have had the opportunity to work effectively with students with diverse learning needs and cultural backgrounds.
I have tutored in less structured environments, such as helping friends and classmates with, particularly difficult homework assignments. And I have tutored in a volunteering position, particularly with English, French, and Biology. My academics also show that I am a dedicated learner. I have taken several different sciences, math, and writing classes that give me a broader range of topics to pull from. To me, the best way to tutor someone is to determine what they are having trouble with and why. From there, it is about tailoring each experience to each student. Some are visual learners, so graphs and images will work better. Others are auditory learners, so hearing the problems will help them better work out the answer. I will strive to ensure each student improves and make it so that they are not frustrated by the process. Sometimes, learning new things is hard, and it is my job to make the process fun, interesting and pushes the students to be better than
Thank you so much for your interest in Sacred Heart High School. Have no fear it is never to late to apply and it is a simple process.
The first year I started tutoring with an official organization, I had the delight of tutoring Nicole. She was a sweet and quiet girl, only two years my junior, just about to enter middle school. Her mother forced her to go to MATHeasy almost every summer, but being an intelligent hardworking student, this was first year she had struggled to learn a new concept, algebraic equations. We were both open to learning from and teaching someone close to our own age. Having the opportunity to meet Nicole and learn who she was as a person shaped the way I tutored years later, as I learned tutees deserved to be treated with respect—they were not simply children who needed disciplining. This was when I began to desire to become a role model to those younger
My tutoring experience is mostly with 7th-12th grade English Literature and Language skills. I have helped students review and prepare for quizzes and tests in multiple choice and short answer format. I have also assisted students with outlining essays and research papers. I also proof read rough drafts and offer suggestions on grammar and rubric completion.
Working as a TRiO tutor I was able to be of help to students that come from disadvantaged backgrounds and are first-generation college students. Been able to help incoming high school students from multiple different backgrounds has allowed me to motivate them and help them succeed. Also, in many cases for some of the High School seniors applying to college, I was able to be of help to them by answering some of their questions or by just giving them some advice for the years ahead of
I’m primarily focused on volunteering at a local middle school, West Cary Middle School, for after school tutoring to kids who are in need of a little extra help with any of their school subjects. This is something that I’m very passionate about and have done since my junior year of high school and aim to continue doing throughout college. One of the goals of the after school tutoring program is to help children that are a little behind in their school work to catch up with their classmates on materials such as reading, homework, and lesson concepts. Another goal is to re-explain a lesson a child might have not quite understood in the classroom or provide a little extra clarification that is needed on a subject. It’s also a goal of the program to have a mentor who not only helps
In my Personal Statement of Experience (PSE), I have mentioned about a lot of activities and if I am being honest, each one of the activities taught me something. For instance, accumulating clothes for the poor in winter taught me how to manage and work in groups and realize the importance of a group leader. But what changed my entire perspective of things was the honor of being a teacher. I have been tutoring students privately ever since I was in grade 10 and what started as something to earn my allowance, soon became a dear hobby. Since I was a student of science my own, I taught all the science subjects along with Mathematics and Statistics which is why this venture was academically beneficial for me. For example, teaching Mathematics
