Describe your tutoring experience if you have any:

Due to my involvement with Math Honor Society at school, I am an avid tutor for students in a wide range of math studies. This past quarter, I have already mentored three students in my grade, with two taking IB Math SL 1 and another in pre-calc. Additionally, many of my other tutoring experiences come from previous years working with BranchOut. The first year I was a part of the program, I volunteered at the Patrick Henry homeless shelter with primarily younger students where we created fun STEM activities such as the science behind oobleck or tornado water bottles. I also mentored at a DC charter school that year, teaching fourth graders several topics including catapults and magnetism. Moreover, last year I was exposed to students closer to my age, since I mentored at Justice High School for the summer school. I became a teacher’s assistant by grading tests, asking if anyone needed guidance, and helping to teach the class. Lastly, I am part of a tutoring club at school called Kids Tutoring Kids, where a group of mentors go to an elementary school every Wednesday to help sixth graders on their homework.

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

My name is Katie Li, and I believe I would be a good fit as mentor because I enjoy helping others and I feel confident in my communication skills. The first two years I was part of the program, while I expected to help other students grow, I found that I myself had grown too as a tutor and active member of society. It felt extremely rewarding every time I heard a student exclaim they “finally got it,” and knowing I was able to make a positive impact on their learning. As I learned from my time in BranchOut, not every student has the same opportunities I had at learning, whether it was because they had to miss school working to support their family, or did not have enough money, or even because they had a child at home. I am interested in fulfilling a mentor role because I would like to share my knowledge with others and I further believe I have the interpersonal skills needed in order to do so.
