Many times, a qualified tutor or instructor lacks the patience and communication skills necessary to guide and motivate his or her students. In high school, I volunteered as a tutor with a program designed to help struggling elementary and middle school students. Through this program I helped students succeed by providing encouragement and support for their homework and by teaching and reviewing concepts that they found challenging. This summer I interned with a nonprofit called Youth Engineering and Science, an organization that seeks to bring STEM education to underprivileged children in West Philadelphia. Here I acted as the primary instructor, not just as an assistant, and this role taught me many valuable lessons about teaching and motivating young people. Without these experiences I had a lot to offer as a student who has successfully navigated the system of AP classes and standardized testing that have such an impact on our futures. But now, as someone whose teaching abilities have been even further sharpened, I want to use my experiences to inspire future generations of students to discover their own paths to success.
