I have graduated high school with honors, and ranked 53 out of 498. I have won 2 Academic Merit Awards, one in 2008, and one in 2009. I have experience with customer service, working with residents in a retirement home as part of the waitstaff. I have over six years of child care and home sitting experience. Proficient with computer, internet, Microsoft Office programs, and other communication equipment.
I would like to be a tutor because I enjoy teaching people and helping them to understand. It is a great feeling to see someone's face light up when they "get it". It's a rewarding, more personal experience than teaching to a class. I like the one-on-one time with students because I feel I can make a better connection.
HobbiesI enjoy playing tennis both recreationally and competitively. I absolutely love to write, mostly creatively, and am currently working on a children's book I hope to someday get published. I even enjoy writing essays, because I think it's important to be able to think critically. I am also an artist. I enjoy drawing and painting in my spare time, and often take commissions for artwork for things such as t-shirts, CD covers, posters, book covers etc. I participate in community service projects with my church and school when I can, from planting trees, to spending time with the elderly, and clean-up jobs in disaster areas. I am proficient in English, writing and art skills, but I can also assist in philosophy, psychology, and study skills and habits.
