ExperienceI have tutored at Oakland Community College from Feb 2003 through April 2008, where I additionally completed a full-fledged tutor certification program. I have also been privately tutoring middle school, high school, and college students from 2004 to present.
I have extensive experience in tutoring students from different backgrounds and ethnicities. When parents contact me for help, I first identify the different areas I need to work on with the students. A student may sign up for Physics or Chemistry, but since these involve different levels of Math, I may have to help the students with some areas of Math as well. As a matter of fact, I may have to help them with reading comprehension too, as understanding a particular concept or a problem ensures finding the appropriate solution. Another important aspect of tutoring is that as a tutor, one has to adapt to the learning needs and preferred techniques of the students. There is no one-size-fits-all kind of method for the very reason that students are different learners. Some are visual, while some use aural or auditory style. Some like logical reasoning, while some others learn hands-on.
I believe I have the ability to help students develop an affinity for learning. Once that is achieved, the actual efforts towards the task become less boring, finishing assignments and studying for a quiz or test become normal routine, and improving the grades in class becomes much easier.
HobbiesAs a family, we love music and sports. Music helps us to reduce stress and relax. Now with a relaxed body and mind, we can focus on the work or task at hand. Sports helps us to stay fit and lead a lifestyle with reduced stress. When we are physically fit and mentally sharp, we are able to complete our work in an efficient manner. We watch many sports and play tennis regularly weather permitting, given it is Michigan.
