I have been tutoring through the local school district for three years, one as an RTI (Response to Intervention) Assistant with the task of helping to improve student grades and test scores through intervention programs.

I always strive to be patient and calm to help students feel as if they can easily play, even if it takes a good chunk of time to teach a basic concept.
