Hello everyone! My name is James Schwann, and I am currently a rising Junior at Columbia University. Presently, I am planning on double majoring in the following disciplines: Financial-Economics & Political Science. I have been tutoring since my Junior year of high school, and I have found it beyond rewarding. Whether it is helping a student achieve academic success or garner a score on a standardized test, tutoring has been very rewarding thus far. Ultimately, however, I want to impress upon the students that I work with that school/academics is a process that requires discipline, dedication, and commitment.
Most importantly, I want to show students that achieving success in any discipline is not a linear path. Instead, everyone has their way of learning and growing as an individual. I want to help fellow students tap into their potential and understand how they learn best. Education is akin to playing a sport; the more the one practices, the better the result will be in the championship!
