Sefy P.

In June 2013, I graduated from Masterman High School. Next week, I'll be moving into Drexel University where I will start a Seven Year Accelerated BS/MD Program with Drexel College of Medicine. For the past four years, I worked in University of Pennsylvania's Endocrinology and Fertility Research Clinic and Lab. I hope that after seven years, I will achieve my goal of being a physician (so far, I'm thinking Women's Health -- but nothing is written in stone). I like to think I am a hard worker and I am always willing to sacrifice some time and energy to help those around me. In High School, I was a member of my National Honor Society so in the morning, twice a week, I would tutor students in Masterman Middle School and High School. I tutored with all subjects from 5th grade math to Calculus BC, from basic elementary science to AP Biology. At my church, I volunteered to tutor students on the weekends especially with SAT and ACT prep. I did not do as well as I had hoped on my standardized tests, but the students that I tutored increased their score by hundreds. I think the key aspect of tutoring is taking the time to understand the student's needs and making them feel comfortable asking whatever questions they wanted. By creating a safe environment, the student already has a greater chance of understanding this material than in a classroom full of intimidating students and teachers. Everyone needs help once in a while and its important to establish a connection with the student so that he/she feels they can succeed. Along with that, a successful tutoring session would mean a lot of questioning, a lot of answering and tons of practice. I love children and I think I have a special connection with them as well. When tutoring younger kids, the key is to be patient. Over the years, I think I have learned how to mix fun and games with education. This balance is what allows young children grasp information in a way that they may not have learned before.Fun Facts: In my middle school and high school yearbooks, I was voted for the "Best Laugh". I don't really know what people see in my laugh but I know that I spend the majority of my day finding the good things of this world and laughing. No, I am not a goofball. I take my work very, very seriously but at the same time I know that lighting up the room with a smile is much more worthwhile than being a grouch. So I laugh and smile. A lot.

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
