EducationI am a student at The Ohio State University studying Integrated Language Arts/Secondary English Education (7th-12th Grades). My GPA in all major courses is ~3.9 (on a four point scale).
ExperienceAs a future Language Arts Educator, I have had copious opportunities to tutor and teach students of all backgrounds. The summer of 2012 I taught reading and developed up my own curriculum to students of Dayton, OH through the Children's Defense Fund's literacy program named "Freedom Schools". Also, I observed an English classroom for +120 hours at Hilliard Darby High School and +50 hours at Dominion Middle School aiming to develop my teaching practices further.
At Ohio State I have taken courses relating to American fiction, Shakespeare, Young Adult fiction and non-fiction, multiple Philosophy courses, writing courses, History and Psychology courses, and many other courses. I also am great with teaching organization tips, study habits, ADD/ADHD students, and students with other disabilities
I view tutoring as a fantastic bridge that connects the two school years and prevents students from losing much of what they learned the year before. I also see a summer filled with a tutor as a time for teachers to develop personal, lasting relationships with students that positively affect the student's lives. I want to keep students educated in a time period where education does not generally occur as well as inspiring those students, through exemplifying my passion in the tutoring sessions, to always thirst for knowledge.
HobbiesI am an outgoing and social person with an emphasis on relationship building in my life. I live my life by attempting to positively affect others' lives in any way I can. This can be something as simple as picking a friend up from school or being there for them when something unforeseen occurs. This personal philosophy is one of the most prominent reasons I would like to go into the teaching profession.
I also enjoy sports. I played hockey and lacrosse throughout my life. I do not believe that sports should be a number one focus, but I do think that sports do teach important lessons (and the physical activity is great as well).
I also love reading. I try to read as much as possible because it is the most important source of knowledge. I will read anything. I love reading non-fiction about historical events, Faulkner or Hemingway novel, or the Harry Potter series.
I care deeply about the students I have taught, am teaching, and will teach in the future. Their success is everything to me. I tried to exemplify this personal quality in this section the best I could but it was difficult with the limited space. I hope that this attribute shines through here enough to give me the opportunity to illustrate how I will do everything in my power to help your student succeed.
Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you soon!
