Describe your tutoring experience if you have any:

My tutoring experience ranges across all age groups, K-12. At my high school, I am a tutor for CheMnection (chemistry tutoring club) where I explain chemistry concepts to students and work out a variety of problems with them. Additionally, I am also a member of my school’s Science National Honor Society and tutor at the local elementary school. I work with fourth and fifth graders on their science assignments they are assigned in class. Furthermore, I am part of the National English Honor Society at my school and tutor elementary and middle school students at the local family shelter. Outside of school, I am an assistant coach for a fourth grade youth league volleyball team where I focus on helping players hone their basic skills and also foster a love for volleyball. Finally, last summer I participated in BranchOut! where I mentored at Justice High School in a chemistry remediation course.

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

Hello! My name is Marina Wang and I am currently a junior at McLean High School. Last year, I had the wonderful experience of being a mentor for BranchOut! I volunteered at Justice High School for two weeks, and the impact the experience had on me was profound. I was able to help out in a chemistry remediation classroom, and developed close bonds with all of the students. I learned about their backstories and why they were recovering a credit. One of the stories that stuck out to me was that they had to work a part-time job to support their families and were not able to attend class and have the right tools to succeed in the class. This had a profound effect on me as I realized how I needed to appreciate my educational opportunities more. Furthermore, I saw the impact I had on the students in the classroom and how they were so quick to pick up on the concepts that were taught to them in class. Through my experience as a mentor I was able to realize that even my small actions of helping others a few hours in my day could help change the future of those students and allow them to access greater educational opportunities. This year, I hope to return as a mentor for BranchOut! and continue helping others whilst growing as a person myself.
