I am a cheerful, enthusiasic, and motivational tutor. I have been tutoring kids (grades 7-11), both during high school, as well as after, in English, Spanish, and Italian, which allowed me to develop strong organizational and planning skills. I always try to teach while allowing students to have fun, as I realize that after school tutoring is not very fun when you are little.Whenever I would teach groups, I would organize activities that pushed them to fully engage in the readings or the exercises that we were doing. I created flashcards, posters, practice exercises, crosswords, scavenger hunts, and themed activities for the holidays in order to build a bond with my students that I still have. When I was in high school and I would tutor after hours as part of the CAS program of the IB Diploma, the CAS coordinator always asked me how I managed to allow my students to improve while making them laugh and enjoy their time. I believe that we are able to learn and communicate better when we feel comfortable, and a cheerful and safe space also allows the student to enjoy the tutoring lesson while still improving his skills. I will never forget when my Spanish teacher asked me to tutor one of my classmates, and in only one Semester she was able to improve from a C to an A. Or whenever I would go tutor middle school children at their homes and as soon as I rang the doorbell they were cheerfully waiting for me, ready to begin the lesson. Tutoring makes me happy. Seeing the effort and commitment that my students put shows me how perseverance is always the key to truly achieving what we want, and I could not be happier when my students finally do. Helping them grow, learn, and observing how happy they feel when they are able to overcome their obstacles always reminds me why I am so passionate about tutoring.
