My love of tutoring comes from the thrill I receive upon seeing a child on their way to success. I love sharing the knowledge I have acquired over my school days, as well as the knowledge I am still acquiring at university. Learning is one of the most joyful experiences in life, and there is absolutely nothing like treasuring a new piece of knowledge.
I have loved reading and writing since I was a little preschooler and thus specialise in all things reading, writing, and literature. I will be happy to help with anything writing or English related.
My philosophy is to provide students with a hans-on experience, for there is much value to students doing things themselves as opposed to being talked to all the time. As an English major at Columbia University, I hope to be able to use the critical thinking skills I have acquired along my personal journey to work with students and adapt to any learning environment and situation. I hope that someday, too, students will find learning fun and engaging, because attitude will make a great difference in any discipline in life, looking to the future.
I have been tutoring since the age of thirteen and have been working with kids for as long as I can remember. I started tutoring my next door neighbour in the 8th grade and have since progressed to tutoring a variety of subjects: English, languages, math, SAT/ACT, etc. I have also done some volunteer tutoring at an elementary school in Chicago and am currently a volunteer teacher in New York at Peer Health Exchange.
I have been tutoring the SAT and ACT with Varsity Tutors for two years now, but I have also been working with other students as a freelance tutor. I work over Skype, FaceTime, and in person. Most of my experience thus comes from high school students, especially with the college admissions process. College admissions can be daunting, but I love to help ease the process not only by providing standardised test tutoring by also by guiding my students through essay writing and navigating the Common App. Some of the students I have worked with have gotten into the University of Chicago, Columbia University, and the University of St. Andrews in the UK. Most recently, I have been working with a prospective applicant to Columbia, whose ACT score we increased from a 21 to a 32.
