Describe your tutoring experience if you have any:

Although I have no formal tutoring experience, in eight grade, I guided younger students partially through the process of writing and publishing a book. Serving as a mentor, I was always readily available and willing to provide help to younger students interested in writing and publishing a book, and I am eager to take on a similar role for students looking to learn more about various academic subjects.

What subjects can you confidently tutor?

Biology, Algebra I, English/Language Arts, Technology

When will you be able to participate and volunteer in the program?

6/24 - 6/28, 7/1 - 7/5

Cumulative Weighted GPA:

3.787 (1st semester 9th grade)

Briefly introduce yourself and explain why you are interested in becoming a mentor for BranchOut!:

Over the years, I've been lucky enough to have resources such as assistance from parents and private tutoring to help keep me on the path to academic success. However, I recognize that the vast majority of students in the DMV area do not have access to such resources and as a mentor for Branch Out, I would like to change this reality. Through Branch Out, I hope to work towards a goal in which nearly every student can receive opportunities similar to the ones that I have throughout my years up to high school. In turn, we can help propel both disadvantaged and advantaged students towards success in STEM education and other academic fields. Mentoring for Branch Out also benefits me personally as it enables me to revisit and give purpose to material that I learned a while ago but may now be on the verge of forgetting.
