Describe your tutoring experience if you have any:

I do not have any formal experience with tutoring; however, in my academic career, I have often helped my peers with various subjects and topics. In addition, I have spent time helping elementary school students learn chess at my local Chinese School. In my position, I talked with the kids on an individual and group basis. Not surprisingly, I grew much more comfortable interacting with them over time. I gained a lot from that experience, so I would definitely like to participate in something similar.

What subjects can you confidently tutor?

Algebra I, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, English/Language Arts, Spanish

When will you be able to participate and volunteer in the program?

6/24 - 6/28, 7/1 - 7/5, 7/8 - 7/12, 7/15 - 7/19, 7/22 - 7/26

Cumulative Weighted GPA:

4.392

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

I am a junior at Thomas Jefferson High School and I would be very interested in becoming a student mentor in the Branch Out Program. I believe that community service in all forms is very important for the well-being of our society. Our country faces a staggering amount of inequality, which of course means that there are some who lack crucial resources. Community service gives everyone the opportunity to help those who need it most. I think that these reasons are amplified when it comes to the education of children. If a student goes through school with much fewer resources, their opportunities and their entire future are severely hampered. Using my knowledge to provide a tool for students would be an excellent way for me to contribute to those in my community. Furthermore, this program will enable me to grow as a person, and interact with people who I may never otherwise see. Mentoring kids would certainly help me develop communication and interpersonal skills, which are crucial in all stages of life.
