When editing a paper for an individual, what separates the way that I edit, versus how another tutor could?
The main issue that arises with a lot of tutors when it comes to editing papers, is that they simply edit the paper and that is all. When you do this, the student doesn't necessarily learn why something needs to be changed or what the errors are. For me, I find that when you are able to walk with the student step by step and show them the error in their ways, it not only makes that specific paper higher quality, but also allows for that student to use these teachings in the future.

How would you help a student who doesn't understand basic fractions?
Utilization of visuals such as pies, pizza, etc helps most students gain an understanding of fractions. Being able to see numbers as more than numbers allows students another point of view.

What sort of impact could you have on the campus of ______?
Throughout the course of the last 17 or 18 years, I (person's name), have played a pivotal role at every school that I have attended. Not only through my hard work and dedication in the classroom, but also the efforts that I have given outside of academics have also allowed myself to be a vital part of every campus that I have been on. Continue to elaborate on what roles the student has played in the school, teams, extra curricular etc..
