Why I want to be a tutor: I would love to be a tutor because I really enjoy working with people and helping people better prepare for their future. I know how difficult some of these courses can be, not everyone is capable of learning information in the standard way that is delivered by teachers. I remember the people who went out of their way to help me when I was struggling and with the knowledge I know now, I would like to do the same for another person. Furthermore, I believe that I possess several of the personality traits like patience, diligence, positivity, and creativity that would make a tutoring experience easy and rewarding.
HobbiesI am a big proponent of health and wellness so I like to exercise, especially running. I also have a serious sweet tooth so I love to bake! I also do a lot of cooking, I like to listen to/search for music from all genres. I also love traveling and reading.
