Describe your tutoring experience if you have any:
During my junior year of high school I have joined various honor societies--such as National Science Honors Society, National Honors Society, and Spanish Honors Society-- which has helped me expand my tutoring experience. Being a tutor is a job that I especially enjoy because of the rewarding feeling that comes as a result of being successful, in addition to knowing I have made a positive impact on another student. One specific example that encompasses my experience in tutoring is with a girl who was struggling in Biology 1 Honors. The week before her test, she asked me for help, so we sat down during a free period and reviewed notes together. We would either go through her homework or textbook in order to gain a full understanding of the concepts she was struggling with. After my first time tutoring her, she asked to be tutored several more times, thus exemplifying the success of our tutoring sessions, which is also demonstrated through her improving grades in Biology class. I understand from those experiences the qualities of an effective tutor and mentor: patience, understanding, and knowledge.
