From my experiences teaching under-privileged students to simply showing my little sister how to swing a tennis racket, I have learned that a mentor is far more valuable than someone who can just spew out facts, formulas, and instructions. This is something that was continually reinforced during my time as a peer tutor and as the manager of my school’s peer tutoring organization as well as while acting as a teaching lab assistant to my fellow peers and as an editor for our newspaper. This is why I try to form a relationship with every student that I work with. By getting to know a tutee, our sessions together are much more enjoyable, open, and productive. Tutoring is a collaborative effort and even a symbiotic relationship: not only do I teach my students a great deal, but I often find myself learning new things from them!
