Jacob G.

I am a sophomore double major in Political Science with and International Emphasis and Spanish with a minor in Economics. In the future I hope to get involved in international government work or in international nonprofits. Before I graduate, I plan on applying for the Fulbright Scholarship to teach English abroad and I hope to live abroad in Spain for a few years after that. I do not have much "formal" tutoring experience, but you could say I have been doing it all my life. Since I was a young kid I would help my classmates understand lesson plans, theories, etc., but my abilities have been more fine tuned in high school and college.. There I have spent most of my tutoring time helping my fellow students with writing Spanish papers and understanding grammar rules. My style is somewhat free flowing and geared toward each student's respective needs and abilities; however, there are always some things that remain constant. First, I am dedicated to the student. I am there for them and want to see them improve and believe in positively encouraging and acknowledging his/ her improvements accordingly. Secondly, I do not believe in doing the work for the student. I am there to help them learn the skills, rules, and background to do the work on their own. I will guide the student through his/her approach to the problem making sure that they understand how to get to the answer and not just what that answer is. Fun Facts: Before I accepted my letters from traditional colleges, I was strongly considered attending culinary school because I love to cook. However, being in a dorm has stifled my abilities slightly, but it hasn't prevented me from participating in other things I love like sports. I absolutely love soccer and I play the game and watch games as often as I can.

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
