High school honor roll student with 4.3 GPA offering to help out with any core class subject (English, History, Math, Science)

Methodology

As a student myself with many friends with learning disabilities and/or special needs who need special accommodations, I know it can be very difficult to generalize how everyone learns. For this reason, I approach each topic from a personal standpoint. What I mean by this is I love to hear a student explain to me in their own words everything they already know about the topic, and we build and shape lesson plans and focal points based on what they struggled with. I love using memory recall games (typically flashcards) and spaced repetition to help terms and facts stick better in their heads. I do not like to overwhelm a student, so oftentimes we stick to one or two key points until they have mastered them before we move on to the next key point(s).

My methods, however, differ from student to student. Depending on the style of learning the student prefers, we can do more physical writing, just talk together, or maybe even begin projects and assigning homework. It all depends on the student’s willingness to learn. I am a firm believer in mindsets, and if you want to learn, I want to teach you.

I will never let a student drown themselves. If I ask a question they may not know the answer to, it is my goal to help them to the answer. I refuse to leave a student hanging on a ledge. I know how embarrassing that can be, and I will never ever make anyone feel uncomfortable or humiliated for not knowing an answer. I will guide you through it gently, without patronization. This, from my past experiences, is something that makes kids more comfortable with asking questions, helping them learn better in a classroom setting.

Background

I am a freshman in high school with a 4.3 GPA. I have a history with tutoring kids at my school, both around my age and younger than me, to great success with tests and class work. I love to help people with this great gift I’ve been blessed with, and this is a good way to give back.

Joey's resume

Joey Holcomb, 14
4.3 GPA
(concealed information)

I am currently a student (high school freshman) in the Volusia County School District. As a student, I know what methods are commonly used for information retention and skill building in school systems across 3 states, and I utilize my knowledge to help others.

Achievements

• Placed in the District Science Fair 2 years in a row with projects on food oxidation and effectiveness of different painkillers
• Member of the Erasmus chapter of the National Junior Honors Society, and will be inducted to the National Honors Society this year
• Placed in the district MathCounts competition with my team, exhibiting my teamwork skills but also my ability to manage time and work towards a goal
• President of my 4-H chapter 2 years in a row, contributing to my community service experience and my planning/leading skills

Languages

• Fluent/native in English, reading at an above college reading level and writing at a college level. (C2)
• Conversational in Spanish, able to hold a conversation and write short pieces in Spanish. (B1/B2)

Skills

• Interpersonal Communication: I am very good at holding conversations based around a topic, I tend to make people comfortable by making occasional jokes and asking personal questions.
• Critical Thinking: I have always been very good at making connections and finding patterns, which helps me understand why and how students learn the way they do.
• Problem Solving: I have the ability to quickly find a resolution to any problem without needing time to think. I tend to think better when I am under a little bit of pressure, which makes my problem solving skills exponentially better.
• Creativity: I find creativity to be a good skill to have when tutoring. You have to find out what is going to work best for your student, and move on from there, and that may take some creative thinking if your student is a rare or unique learner.

Experience

• Tutored students to ace their exams in civics and history classes for two years
• Math tutoring for 4 years in Algebra, Geometry, MFCR, and basic elementary and middle school mathematics
• Shadowed a math teacher for a year as a part of a school program. I built lesson plans, taught students, and created tests for each topic.
