What teacher or tutor made a difference in your life and how?

A teacher who made a difference in my life would have to be my math teacher during sophomore year of high school. She was a very understanding and caring person who was there for me when I was at a low point in life. Not only did she help me out in my studies, but she also supported me outside of school.

Why do you like to tutor?

I like to tutor because I like working with kids and I feel like this is a great opportunity for me to interact with them while helping them reach their educational goals.

Why kids should take advantage of tutoring?

Kids should take advantage of tutoring because it can help increase their motivation through one on one learning that can allow them to reach their full academic potential.
