After my enrollment in the Engineering program at Lamar University, I began work as a math and science tutor for the national program TRIO for 16 months. Afterwards, I began work as a Sales Consultant for Best Buy. I worked as a tutor and as a sales consultant because I always enjoyed helping other people learn, whether it be understanding a hard subject, or teaching others about various aspects of technology. When I am not working, I offer to help high school students with supplemental learning and test preparation.
I was a tutor for TRIO for three college semesters, and during that time, I worked with students on various subjects. My tutoring focus was Calculus and General Chemistry, but I would tutor other classes such as Philosophy and English. The sessions were one-on-one hour lessons with the student. The lessons would focus on supplemental instruction for subject or test-taking strategies.
