Richard B.

I was born in Inglewood, California, moved to Aurora, Colorado when I was ten, and now currently attend Boston University. I am a Neuroscience major and I am trying to get my Master's in Public Health with a focus on Global Health in a 4 + 1 program at my school. I am of Guatemalan descent and Spanish is my first language. In my sophomore and junior year of high school, I was part of the Hispanic Leadership Group and every Monday we would go down to the middle school nearby and help Latino students who were also part of a similar group with their homework, usually with Math or English. At the beginning of my senior year to the end of the summer before I left to college, I worked at a Kumon Learning Center and tutored for a majority of my time there. I tutored mainly Math & Reading across all levels of difficulty, with students from ages 5-15. I hope my time at Frog Tutoring will help me nurture my skills as a tutor so I am more able to help others learn and acquire knowledge to help the students reach their goals. In order to properly understand how I can help, I first focus on what the student currently knows and what their goals are, whether it be the application of material to a certain problem or learning a new concept. I will assess their level of comprehension and use the skills they possess to push them in the right direction rather than lecturing too much. If the students cannot make that "extra jump" using their own knowledge, I will intervene and take a more lecture based approach, while making sure that they fully integrated the information and are able to apply it appropriately.Fun Facts: I am a huge proponent of public health and I love volunteering. Whether it is for the Red Cross or social advocacy groups, I am passionate about being involved for a greater cause. I love running long distance, working out in general, hiking and camping. I am also bilingual and know a little bit of French. I am a vegetarian and the first in my family to go to college!

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
