Why you decided to be a tutor?

I love to share things that I've learned with other people. I've never imagined myself being able to share my knowledge with someone until one day, my friend asked me for help with classwork. After I helped them, they were so grateful that I could explain something to them so clearly that they were having trouble understanding. Their joyful reaction filled my heart, and made me want to continue uplifting other students who wouldn't otherwise be able to find help.

Why you decided to be a tutor? Tutoring can make the difference in the academic success for many students. A tutor can provide the ability for students to develop a stronger grasp of the course material as well as leading to a higher grade.  Still wondering why I decided to be a tutor? Well, I decided to be a tutor for some extra income; however, tutoring is time consuming and requires hard work, preparation, and effort. Therefore, some other reasons why I decided to be a tutor are: greater mastery of the subjects I tutor, interpersonal skill development, improved ability to communicate, greater self-confidence when I encounter challenges, and personal satisfaction that comes from knowing I have helped someone else. So far, I always end up doing an excellent job guiding students and helping them learn.
