Jim B.

I am a freshman at Texas Christian University with an intended major of business and finance. I began as an engineering major, and my general GPA first semester as such was a 3.793. I hope to graduate from the Neeley Fellows Honors Business Program at TCU and achieve my Masters in Accounting. As far as leadership positions, I was captain of my both my high school and club soccer teams, SGA Spirit Club Chair and assisted my father in running an annual stream-cleaning event from elementary through high school. As a member of the National Honor Society, my junior year I assisted in my high school's academic learning center after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week by tutoring other students who needed help in Math and English. Other tutors and I would float around from student to student and help walk them through specific obstacles they were encountering. I am seeking another opportunity to help others learn now that I am in college, and am hoping Frog Tutoring will provide me with the opportunity to do so. I have often found that the best way I learn is through individual interaction with a peer who may have a better understanding of the subject at hand than I do, especially in Math. Discussing multiple vantage points allows a student to see a problem from a different angle, and it is often the smallest step backward that allows the student to take huge strides forward. In English, it never hurts to have another person review a paper, especially grammar errors. My AP English teacher in high school proved to me how minute mistakes can create an entirely different message.Fun Facts: One of my favorite hobbies is playing soccer. In high school, I was a second team All-American and won state in club 3 times. I also enjoy working with kids with disabilities. In fact, I am currently training to ride across the country this summer in an effort to promote awareness for issues of disability.

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
