Describe your tutoring experience if you have any:

I have tutored my younger brother who is now 12 years old in math. Sometimes it was to help him learn new concepts, and sometimes it was to prepare for tests like the IAAT. I found that I was able to explain concepts in simple language with great patience. The experience was very rewarding.
As a seasoned member of my school’s UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) club, I coach new members how to use CAD (computer aided design) software. The new members are freshmen 9th graders. The UAV club focuses on designing an autonomously flying aircraft.
STEM has always been my interest. This is a major reason why I chose to attend TJ. Branch Out’s mission is to promote STEM education. I believe I can leverage my knowledge and coaching experience to spread the passion for STEM.
