Josh G.

I was able to graduate with a BA in English from the University of North Texas within 3 years while working a part-time job, so I definitely enjoy being busy. I have also recently completed a MA in Political Science from the University of Texas at Arlington. I truly enjoy working with people and learning about all aspects of culture. Being a DFW native, I am familiar with the area and am aiming to set myself up to work in an educational or community development related field. I have previously tutored college level students at UTA in introduction level courses over English and US Government. These sessions included individual and group tutoring. Due to my improvements as a tutor, I was promoted within a semester. Many of the individuals were first generation college students or had a learning disability such as ADHD or Aspergers syndrome. My tutoring experience at UTA was such a great fit that after graduating with my MA, I decided to return my focus to it. I am currently an in-home tutor with Club Z, which has expanded my experience to include elementary - high school level students. These opportunities have been equally rewarding. My philosophy of teaching can be generally summarized in the Chinese proverb, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for the day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” This is to say that my goal for each student is to learn his/her strengths and weaknesses so that I can focus my lessons in a way that will help them the most. While I do strive for students to achieve high markings in the classroom, I believe it is equally important to teach them critical thinking skills and good study habits that will transfer to other subjects throughout their academic careers. Fun Facts: I love to fill my free time with music. I play guitar, drums, and love to go to concerts whenever I'm able to. I also love the outdoors and traveling to new places. I am very excited for this summer because that means there will be more time to swim!

Frog Tutoring says

In 2009, Roland Omene, a TCU bio-chemistry graduate, founded Frog Tutoring. The company originated in Fort Worth, TX, and is quickly expanding to cities all over the country. Frog Tutoring was founded under the belief that all students deserve tutoring regardless of age. We believe the first step in successful tutoring is finding the “right” tutor. That is why we only hire the top students and graduates from local colleges in the area. Each one of our well-trained tutors specializes in at least one area of expertise and is eager to aid in the academic success of the students they tutor. Frog Tutors are not just intelligent individuals, but role models who inspire their students to achieve success both academically and personally. - See more at: http://frogtutoring.com/about_us#sthash.ov47ISCO.dpuf
