Tutoring Experience

Volunteer Teacher's Assistant for a high school Pre-Calculus class — When students were working on homework or during review sessions I would walk around and answer any questions that absent or confused students had. Personal Tutor — I helped an 8th grade student when they were taking Algebra I. They had confusion regarding the problems and how concepts connected, so I would take the time to understand where they were at in order to best encourage and guide them. Practicum Student — I independently prepared and taught multiple lessons, and was observed for three of those lessons by a supervisor. When I wasn't teaching I would be available for questions or further explanation. Kindergarten Sunday School teacher — I planned and co-taught hour long lessons, engaging the students in active learning and planning activities that kept their attention.
