As a 3rd year pharmacy student, I can relate to the challenge of keeping up with difficult coursework. Every student faces a subject that requires extra time and effort, and it is important to have help along the way to stay motivated and get through tough spots. I am not only passionate about learning but also about helping others to achieve their educational goals. My experience as a tutor began at an early age in working with my classmates in subjects such as biology, chemistry, and geometry. In college I spent time with elementary age children at an after school community center working on reading and writing using games and activities. In addition to having worked with middle schoolers on English and social studies homework, I also worked at the senior center as a personal computer tutor. Through my placement in the Junior League of Indianapolis, I worked with School on Wheels, a structured tutoring program involving reading and writing activities in addition to homework assistance. Last year I was a reading tutor for the Nashville public school system, working with second and third grade students on reading and writing. Currently I serve as a volunteer at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in the school program working with children in the inpatient unit. I am passionate about serving my peers and my community.
Having fun and finding what motivates students is key to not only wanting to do the work, but also to retaining what they have learned. For example, during my time as a tutor for the Nashville public school system, one student and I had a particularly close connection. She flourished as a student, and in the end wrote a particularly entertaining rap song using the lessons she had learned with me. As a tutor, this is the sort of experience I seek to bring to all my students.
