In the past, I have had various experiences working with students to tackle their academic challenges. In high school, I worked at a center where I used to help students from the second to sixth grade improve and build reading, writing, and math skills. Furthermore, during summer of 2013, I served as a volunteer teacher at a school for children with learning disabilities in Chennai for two weeks. I created fun activities focused on improving basic math and reading skills, collaborated with other instructors, motivated students, and led one on one classes during the afterschool program. Also, in high school, I was briefly a tutor for geometry, chemistry, and calculus AB.
Currently, I just finished my first year of college at Saint Louis University (SLU). I am premedical student who is majoring Biology, and I am seriously considering pursuing a second major in Anthropology. I have recently been accepted to work as a lecture assistant for the Principles of Biology class at SLU next fall. In that position, I will be expected to help ease the freshman transition into this rigorous college science course by answering questions and helping facilitate discussions in class.
I have really enjoyed my past tutoring/teaching experiences. I am a great tutor because I truly believe that all students have the capability to overcome academic obstacles, I enjoy working with other students, and I have been successful in all of my most difficult high school and college classes. I have a passion for learning, and I would love to share that passion with other motivated students.
