Sarung K.

I am a senior at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), studying neuroscience and following the pre-med curriculum. I will be graduating in December 2011. Currently, I am applying to medical school and work part-time as a research and administrative assistant to a transplant surgeon at the University of Illinois Medical Center. As an active member of the Chicago Civic Leadership Certificate Program (CCLCP) at UIC, I worked with children in underprivileged neighborhoods of Chicago through an After School Matters program. Together, we used art as a medium through which to express ourselves and create a sense of pride in our communities. We also learned about the importance of a proper, healthy, nutritionally balanced diet and even hosted weekly television shows educating the community on what we learned! Through this experience and serving as a mentor to these children, I realized my desire to work with children. I also developed my ability to reason with older aged students while tutoring at the UIC Honor's College tutoring center. There, I worked with college students on many courses in the premedical curriculum. The combined experiences from the aforementioned mentoring and tutoring opportunities, I find myself approaching students with a very open-minded mentality. I understand that each student is unique and therefore, has unique areas in which he or she may need help. Also, I learned how essential it is to send students off with 1. a sense of accomplishment and confidence and 2. a personal assignment to practice the new methods we worked on. These often forgone pieces of tutoring are absolutely critical- keeping a high morale is what helped me get through my difficult courses; practice makes what you practice permanent, not perfect. I vow, to the best of my ability, to help the students I tutor practice the best study methods I know so as to make their educational efforts permanently perfect.Fun Facts: One thing about me that people may think is strange is I enjoy running cross country. My high school team's motto was "Our sport is your punishment!" I also play the drums, but am not in a band. I think the brain is one of the coolest things in the world. Lastly, I grew up in Ohio and am an avid Ohio State Buckeyes fan!

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
