Describe your tutoring experience if you have any:
Last summer, I participated in Branch Out and mentored high school students the subject of Algebra I. I thoroughly enjoyed the mentoring experience because I was exposed to other cultures, and I gained insight on how to mentor better. From that experience, I learned that when mentoring, it is best to be open, dedicated, and persistent. By being like that, students were more likely to ask questions and participate in class. I have also counseled volleyball for elementary, middle, and high school students. Although I was teaching them a sport and not academics, I still gained something from counseling. I learned that communication between myself and the coach, and myself and the students was key. I believe I can apply this communication skill to mentoring because by talking and engaging with the students more, they are more willing to learn and improve in class.
