I've worked with students teaching and tutoring in multiple capacities in the past and enjoy it immensely. I have tutored elementary school students with ADD in English and Math, high school students in Pre-Calculus, and college students on the brink of failure in Anatomy, Histology, Physiology, Biology, Calculus and many other subjects. While in medical school, I have tutored other students on the higher level subjects of medical school including Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, and Biostatistics.
I like to let the student guide my teaching style. In my experience, each student needs individualized tutoring. Personally, I am a visual learner, but I know that not everyone learns that way, so I accommodate to each student's needs. My first student with ADD showed me the range of needs each student can have. Other students have different needs, and I like to push my students to their full potential.
Communication is key to success in the tutor-student relationship, and I work hard to make sure that we both understand the commitment and the goals that we are working towards. Each session should have a goal that we go over in the beginning of the session and agree on and if time permits, at the end, go over that goal and see what we want to review for next session.
While I try to push my students, I also am very lighthearted and like to have fun during the actual session. The more enjoyable the session, the more information will be retained and understood. I consider myself and the student to be a team trying to achieve a set goal, so I am always open to suggestions on my style or approach to tutoring.
I hope that I get the chance to work with you and help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be, and have some fun along the way!
