Over my time at the high school, I had various opportunities to develop my leadership and organization abilities. I maintained a 4.0 GPA while being involved in many extra-curricular activities, tutoring, and taking eight Advanced Placement Classes. Balancing all of these different obligations has helped me develop greater time-management skills. Specifically, tutoring, and my work in National Honors Society and Knowledge Bowl have helped me gain greater communication and organization skills.
I began tutoring my freshman year, and I was able to help a senior struggling in Algebra II graduate. Since then, I have tutored over fifteen students, accumulating more than 300 community service hours. Over time, I noticed that there was particular demand for SAT and ACT tutoring, so I organized my own curriculum and lesson plans for students, as while as personalizing to each individual’s needs. This summer, I am coordinating with the Anacortes School District to teach a SAT Class for a small group of high school students. Tutoring has helped me learn how to communicate with a various amounts of people.
In college, I continued working in education, serving as a volunteer tutor for students studying AP Calculus at a local high school, and working as an education intern and tutor for Middle Tree Academy, where I organized the standardized test preparation curriculum there. Now, I serve as a mentor for the mathematics and physics department, teaching introductory level physics and Linear Algebra and Multivariable Calculus.
I have extensive experience with these subjects, am enthusiastic, patient, flexible, and accountable, and am happy to work with all students.
