Phil Y.

I am a senior at New York University, studying Comparative Literature, Politics, Philosophy, and Creative Writing. I have been on the Dean's List since freshman year, with an overall GPA of 3.8. After my junior year, I was also awarded a research grant to study the literature and culture of the American Southwest. After graduation, I hope to attend graduate school to pursue an MFA in Creative Writing. My first experience with tutoring occurred during my freshman year of high school. As a volunteer, I worked with middle school students in special education programs to develop their basic reading and math skills. I continued tutoring in college by joining the America Reads program. I was assigned to a New York City middle school, where I helped provide inner city students with individual attention in their math, science, and English classes. I would be excited to work for Frog Tutoring and continue providing help to students who need it. Most of my tutoring experience has been geared toward providing help to students in special education programs, and working with these students, above all, has taught me patience. I think it is important for a tutor to be prepared to take a variety of approaches (auditory, visual, etc.) and to not get frustrated when one particular approach isn't working. Part of this flexibility involves allowing the student to arrive at the answer herself. It doesn't matter how fancily or eloquently a tutor can explain a topic—what matters is if the student understands. A tutor's role is to guide the student toward understanding a concept and to not get frustrated along the way.Fun Facts: My main interest has always been reading. Since I was ten, I have made it a goal to read at least one novel per week, and my favorite authors are Faulkner, Wallace, and Nabokov. I also have always had a passion for traveling, and I make it a point to visit at least two new countries each year. I have also dabbled in standup comedy, performing several primetime shows at well-known NYC clubs.

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
