ExperienceMy enthusiasm for tutoring and enjoyment in teaching is evident to the students I work with and to their parents. I developed some of my creative teaching style in my experience as a professor of sociology with the University of California, Berkeley. For five years, I guided students in writing, studying, and critical thinking exercises. For three more years, I taught students in the design, execution, and write up of research in social science. I successfully find approaches to best match the learning style of the student. For example, I encouraged a current student of French to throw a ball while he conjugates verbs, and this was successful for him because he learns kinetically. I value organization through writing up lesson goals and lesson structure prior to each session. I share these with the student and their parents so everyone is on board with our plan. I take my work seriously, modify plans as needed, and am conscientious. For example, I will give extra time to provide feedback on writing assignments for my student. Lastly, I am an effective communicator. I always share with the parent the content of the session, plans for the next one, and a short report of each tutoring lesson.
