Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I don't have any formal teaching or tutoring experience. But, I have had lots of informal, peer tutoring experiences. In college, I was able to grasp a lot of the material in my engineering courses quicker than others, so I spent lots of hours tutoring my friends (as well as being tutored by them) and tutoring people from other walks of life (which gained me friends). I learned a lot about what I was studying and also about how to set boundaries. Along with those, I learned that I liked tutoring and that people liked me tutoring them.
