Julia W.

I am currently a junior at the University of Texas at San Antonio. My major is Chemistry because I feel chemistry is fascinating and has the biggest potential in changing the world. I am still debating what I want to do after I graduate with teaching at the top of my list and am currently working on getting my teaching certification. Throughout high school, I have been a teacher's assistant for math and helped students with understanding lectures and homework problems. Once I entered college, I tutored close peers and classmates. To work for Frog Tutoring, I would like to gain more experience with working with all types of students in helping them enjoy and progress in their school work. I think there are several things that will make learning more enjoyable and help students progress. I would make the subject relatable and fun by relating the subject to the student's hobbies or interests. By making the subject interesting, I think it would help a student focus rather then become bored or distracted. Learning needs to be viewed as fun rather than a chore. Patience and encouragement are also very key in preventing students from getting discouraged. I would praise them when they get the answers right and try different approaches rather than the same approach if they are still not understanding.Fun Facts: I am a military brat and have moved six times. I love reading in my free time, traveling, and meeting new people. Teaching is my passion and I want students to actually enjoy a subject rather than seeing it as a chore. From experience, I have learned that a teacher can impact a student as to which major they want to pursue once they reach college by how interesting they make a subject.

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
