An energetic young man, I am nearing 20 years old and studying Biomedical Engineering with pre-med at Wayne State University. A state-ranked hurdler in high school, I still try to maintain my fitness and body. I am a motivated college student who has a passion for learning. But when I was a young child, it was very difficult for me to sit down and learn something because I was such a hyperactive child. Thus, I had to learn what it meant to crack down and focus. Some topics came naturally to me, however, and it was in these subjects that I excelled, eagerly helping out others along the way. It was in this way that I discovered my talent for explaining things in an easy, comprehensible way. Over the past few years, I have developed considerable experience in tutoring students, from the youngest elementary school children to high school kids, and from students with meager financial and educational backgrounds to those whose parents are doctors and lawyers. I have realized that each student has different needs, but there are patterns as well. For example, a student good at reading comprehension will be better off when tackling a mathematical word problem. I have tutored kids on a number of subjects, including mathematics, science, reading/writing, and even certain religious studies. In addition, I was an ACT instructor for a locally administered course to a batch of high school students, whose scores increased by the end of the course. I recognize that each person has unique needs and that often times, one-size-fits-all classroom instruction is not adequate for a student. It is crucial to understand that higher order learning is accompanied by good instructors who provide their attention and care towards the student without distractions. My experiences have developed me into a person who is competent in the realm of good instruction. In particular, my research on education in America, coupled with my tutoring inner-city Detroit kids proved to be valuable insight into the importance of tutors and the passion for learning that they are capable of inspiring in the students. Indeed, constantly motivating students to do well and recognizing their accomplishments is vital in effecting their success. Fun Facts: Daring, passionate, and spontaneous: these three words describe me succinctly. I am one who thinks outside the box and encourage others to do so as well. It is important to not get caught up by mundane ideas of society and explore the world through one's own eyes. Another thing I encourage is working together, because I do believe the whole is better than the sum of its parts, and what better cause to work for than education or charity for the needy? I've led a number of such efforts, the largest of which was a fundraising dinner for orphan students in Pakistan, in which we helped raise $52,000, 100% of which went straight towards the humanitarian aid.
