I came to the belief early on that the classroom is not always the place where students best learn. Many do very well, picking up subjects quickly and in perfect concert with their teacher's style. Others, however, may have struggles. While I was studying for my master's degree in Philosophy, at San Diego State University, I had the chance to teach a course in critical thinking and composition. I saw this played out - many students were able to pick the subject up easily, but some had a rough time. I opened my office hours up to those individuals and worked with them independently. I discovered that although my teaching methods worked for most of the students, there were these others that needed me to explain things in a different manner. They benefited from the opportunity to ask questions directly, and I had the opportunity to see what barriers they had, and work with them to overcome these. I learned to adjust my teaching style to match my students' needs, and have come to really value individualized tutoring. I am able to tutor students in a wide variety of subjects, including studying for standardized exams like the ACT, SAT, and GRE, among others.
