EducationSophomore English major at James Madison University
ExperienceHello! As an english and education major I want to be a tutor because I believe it would be good practice for me, as I would like to be a teacher in the future. I also feel it is important for students to feel comfortable writing, especially because in college there is a lot of it, and I would like to help them get to a state of self-assurance in the area.
In high school I did tutor a little bit in an Algebra 1 class, however I did not at the time, nor now, feel comfortable helping people with their math because I am an English person. Despite the fact that I was not the most qualified to tutor math, it did help me learn how to bring a subject down to someone's level and help them back up so that they can do it themselves in the future. I have also often times helped my peers with their papers to make sure they are fit to be turned in.
In high school I took IB English and on the test I scored a 5, which exempted me from Writing 103 my freshman year at JMU. I also took IB History, which on the test I received a score of 6 which also exempted me from taking US History here at JMU. Although I have not taken a history course since high school, I help my brother with it when I am home, and I still love history so I can also help with that. I am currently taking a Texts for Teachers course in which we read plays and poems relevant to middle and high school students. I am also in a Foundations of American Education course in which we learn about different educational philosophies in order to become the best teachers possible.
HobbiesI love to read and watch movies. Some of my favorite books are "Everything is Illuminated," "Slaughter House-Five," and "Into the Wild." Some favorite movies are "Little Miss Sunshine," "Stranger than Fiction," and "The Little Mermaid." I also love to coo
