I am a strong tutor because I believe in connecting with students so that they are comfortable engaging, talking to me, and asking questions. I am someone who can empathize, yet be tough when I have to be. I love helping people and working with them to get their full potential drawn out.
I spent time teaching English in Panama. Because of this experience, I understand both the positions of being a teacher and a student, and I use this to my advantage as a tutor. I care deeply about my students because I myself have had teachers that have cared so deeply about me and have helped me reach my full potential.
