Describe your tutoring experience if you have any:

I liken the teaching of diseases in Investigations of Epidemiology (club held at my school) to tutoring because the purpose of the club is to educate students about the distribution and determinants of health conditions. When a presentation slot becomes available, I prepare a slide show and present. In addition, I enjoy teaching concepts (chem, math, etc) to my friends, for it ensures that I know the material and that I'm capable of making someone else know it too.

What subjects can you confidently tutor?

Algebra I, Algebra II, 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:

4.175

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

I'm Jennifer Ho, a sophomore at TJHSST. I would consider myself more of a STEM person than a humanities person; during school, I typically look forward to chemistry and computer science class. Nonetheless, I still find writing crucial not only for unleashing creative expression, but also for journaling as a form of mental health management, the latter being a serious issue throughout the world. Additionally, I regularly partake in violin lessons, volleyball practices, my school’s yearbook and STEM clubs, and Marine Corps Marathon volunteer opportunities.
Mentoring encourages mutual learning: the mentee gathers information from the mentor, but the mentor also gains chances to maintain and expand their knowledge, perhaps via a difficult question asked by the mentee. Furthermore, self-confidence is a quality all people should develop, which can be achieved through mentoring for both parties. I would also like to enhance my leadership and communication skills, which are emphasized greatly in the tutoring process. I truly believe that assisting another person is entirely beneficial for both the person and myself because it allows us to become more insightful, self-assured students. Becoming a Branch Out! mentor means creating a valuable experience for every student involved.
