Ariel J.

I am currently a second year law student studying Child and Family law, with a focus on education policy. I hope to one day work toward making sure that all children have the resources they need to succeed in our society, regardless of any geographic, economic or racial classifications. I spend a great majority of my time studying and learning about the law, so that I can use it effectively in working for kids. I have been tutoring and teaching students since I was 15 years old. Most recently, I taught 9th graders in a summer program specializing in English, Grammar, and Literature at a local private school, but I have also worked extensively with inner city students and in a one on one settings with private families. In undergrad, I spent time developing programs that worked exclusively with students whose families were not native to the United States, and therefore struggled to grasp all the nuances of the English language. I have always been a good student, but only because I have had good teachers to encourage me when I struggled. In my experience, those students who do not receive encouragement, even when they struggle, find school to be overwhelming, embarrassing and pointless. I hope to be a resource to students, allow them to voice their concerns about their challenges, where they feel they struggle, and what they believe they need from me to support them. I want students to feel as though I am their partner, not simply another adult that doesn't "get it". Fun Facts: Music is my biggest passion. Anytime I am not doing homework, one might catch me singing to a variety of music generes, in my car, with hand gestures! I also try and read at least one book a month for pleasure. I grew up in a family of readers; there were books all over my house, in boxes, on shelves, and even in the kitchen. I have gotten very busy in recent years, and this pastime has gone by the wayside, but I make sure to incorporate reading into my schedule as much as possible. I believe that literature can be a means of relaxation and escape, even if only for a few minutes.

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
