Selena R.

I am currently a senior at the University of Texas at Austin, with a Psychology major and Sociology minor. Ever since elementary school, I've been placed into gifted and high achieving school programs. Initially, I was a bad test taker growing up and was once put on academic probation entering high school to watch my grades. This inspired me to prove to educators that test grades are not everything, and I aced my classes. I developed a great work ethic in high school and it has continued to helped me at school, and at work. I am a fast learner, and a hard worker. I'm very organized and scheduled, and I always strive for A's in my classes. I currently work in a phobias lab at University of Texas at Austin Psychology Department. I am also an officer in two different organizations, Diversity in Psychology and Texas Student Psychological Association. I have helped my friends study for tests, and I give them tips for how to better learn or memorize material. I have not been an official tutor, but I have experience teaching material to my peers. I take the best notes in all of my classes, and I am always extremely prepared for tests because of my studying techniques. Tests no longer frighten me, like they once did in Highschool. Through these skills, and my education in psychology, I am able to help tutor others. As a leader in my academic organizations, I am seen as a mentor and offer resources to people whenever possible. My tutoring approach starts with organization and time management. I believe that is the most important foundation to a study routine. Setting up times to study, take breaks, switch subjects, and factor in life are the first steps. Patience and repetition are important aspects to tutoring. It takes time to understand difficult material, and it is the tutor's job to make sure the teaching style matches the student's learning style. Keeping track of progress is useful in achieving set goals, as well as periodically assessing what you've learned. Taking small breaks should never be left out! As a psychology student, I am educated in the best stress relief techniques and utilize them daily.Fun Facts: I love animals, and have experience training dogs! My passions are dancing, acting, and music. I am the youngest of three, and I grew up in Dallas, TX. I'm very outgoing, friendly, and adventurous! Pizza is my favorite food, and green is my favorite color. I am a gamer, and have been a Sony Playstation loyalist since I the first playstation was released!

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
