Describe your tutoring experience if you have any:

At my school, I am a tutor in the peer tutoring program. Since our school encompasses a large spectrum of grade levels, I often help tutor students in varying grade levels. I have been an active tutor in this program for the past year, and many students have come during my hours to improve their skills in mathematics. I tutor other high school students, but it is often middle school students that show up. The levels of math I have tutored my peers in range from algebra I to pre-calculus. The students I have helped in the peer tutoring program showed significant improvement in their understanding of mathematics.

Algebra I, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, English/Language Arts, Chinese

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

My name is Eric Ma and I am a tenth grade student at BASIS Independent McLean. When it comes to which subjects I pride myself on, I often do so on math and physics. I strongly desire to participate in this program because I find pleasure in passing on knowledge to others. I see this mentoring program as an opportunity for me to further my tutoring abilities, and fits my interests perfectly. Fostering an encouraging and enthusiastic learning environment is important to me. I am a firm believer that students learn best when they are interested. As such, my goal is to find new and creative methods to teach my peers, as well as to help them engage more closely with learning the material. At my school, I am a mathematics tutor for students ranging from elementary to pre-calculus levels. By spreading an enjoyable experience surrounding math, I am able to help other students in more ways than just explaining class material.
