I recently started teaching English to kids in the Hunan province in China from grades 2-6 via video conference.

Although this has been my only tutor experience so far, I hope that I can gain more experience by joining and working with Branch Out.

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

I’m currently in 8th grade, and I’m still learning about ways to interact and talk with different people. Since I started teaching English to kids in China, I realized that I enjoy teaching others about different subjects and watching them begin to understand. It made me feel proud to know that I made a small difference in someone just by teaching them something or setting them on the right path for future education.

I’m also wrapping up my term as one of the co-Presidents of a nonprofit organization at my school called Difference Makers, which strengthens students’ leadership and volunteering skills. I’ve learned from three years in this organization that I enjoy helping others, whether its children or the elderly. Since I’d begun performing music with my friends at a senior center, I’ve also learned that I love performing for others’ enjoyment.

I hope that, by joining Branch Out, I can expand on my passion for helping others, whether it’s by volunteer work, teaching, or performing. I truly look forward to volunteering at Branch Out during the summer.
