The Tutoring Solution's January 2015 Student of the Month - Jonathan "Alex" Aird

The Tutoring Solution’s January 2015 Student of the Month – Jonathan “Alex” Aird

For the month of January 2015, we selected Alex Aird as our Student of the Month. He receives his tutoring in Chino Hills. Alex is a 1st grade student at Butterfield Ranch Elementary School. We have been working with him since the start of the school year. He is currently working with our tutors Jennifer and Yessenia to help him improve his reading skills. Thus far, Alex has proven to be a delight to work with.

We have been working with Alex for about 4 months now and, right from the start, we knew he was destined to be one of our Students of the Month. The tutors that have had the pleasure of working with him have said nothing but wonderful things about him. His main tutor, Jennifer, describes Alex as “a wonderful student who is always full of so much energy and joy.” She went on to say, “he never fails to bring a smile to my face. He is always so playful. Also, he is able to find so much excitement in the smallest things, which makes me so happy.” It is clear that Jennifer really enjoys working with Alex due to his contagious personality and his desire to make everyone as happy as he is.

Not only is Alex very delightful and pleasant to be around, he is also highly intelligent and hard working. Jennifer describes Alex as being “very smart and able to catch on to things very fast. His memory skill is outstanding and he is able to figure out things very quickly.”

While working together, Jennifer has seen great improvements in Alex’ reading abilities; Alex is now able to identify words a lot faster, and he is a much faster reader because of that. Jennifer says she is delighted and extremely proud by how much Alex has progressed in just a few short months. She is eager to see how much he continues to grow with her continued guidance, his positive energy, and the support of his wonderful parents.

We at The Tutoring Solution, along with Jennifer, are very proud of how much Alex has improved in such a short time span. Alex represents what can be achieved with a little bit of guidance, some hard work, and a positive outlook. He perfectly exemplifies what it means to be a Student of the Month. We want to end by saying, “Congratulations Alex!”

 


 

If you feel that your child has improved in school, due to the tutoring they have received from us, and you would like them to be featured as our Student of the Month, please send us an email letting us know how your child has improved.  We hope you can help us show how proud we are of each one of our students.

We provide tutoring in Chino, Corona, Norco, Eastvale, Chino Hills, Mira Loma, Alta Loma, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, and all the surrounding cities.  We have students from Sky Country Elementary, Oxford Preparatory Academy, Heritage Oak Private Education, Townsend Junior High School, Roosevelt High School, Alta Loma High School, Norco High School, Centennial High School, Chino Hills High School, Ontario Christian High School and Ayala High School.

  • What is your experience as a tutor or teacher?

For four years at UCLA, I participated in a program designed to teach molecular biology to underserved LAUSD students. Working in small groups, I guided students through lab experiments and presented concepts in innovative, non-traditional ways. Additionally, I completed a teaching assistantship at a LA-area high school, where I tutored in several sciences classes.

More recently, I taught a summer course in Earth Science at a high school in South Bronx, NYC and a fall course in Physics at a high school in New Haven, CT.

  • What subjects are you best at?

I have the most training and experience in the physical sciences (physics, chemistry, earth science/astronomy, etc.) and mathematics (algebra to college-level).

In addition, I am willing to tutor in biology, English/composition, and Western (American/European) history. I have successfully completed college coursework in all of the above areas.

  • What is your schedule like? What days and times are you available to tutor?

During the week (M-F), I am available every day after 6 p.m. On the weekends, I am available at any time.

I have 1-2 rotating days per week when my work schedule permits me to tutor before 6 p.m., so tutoring in the early afternoon may be a possibility as well.

  • Where did you attend school? What degrees do you have?

I graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Astrophysics in June 2014. While at UCLA, I also completed extensive coursework in biology and chemistry as a microbiology student.

  • What cities can you tutor in (i.e. how far can you drive to tutor)?

I am willing to travel within 30 minutes of my home in South Corona. Cities include Corona, Norco, Eastvale, Lake Elsinore, Anaheim Hills, Yorba Linda, and Chino/Chino Hills.

  • Are you open to tutoring students via Skype or another online platform?

I am open to tutoring online in certain instances (e.g., illness, travel, schedule rearrangements, etc.), but I would prefer tutoring students in person.

This is based on experience and a personal philosophy that teaching in-person fosters a better learning environment. Plus, it helps to be able to see exactly what a student is writing down, step-by-step!

  • What are your future career goals?

I am pursuing a career in science education. I envision a scientifically-literate nation where every individual has received a quality education, empowering them to make informed decisions about the crucial science-based issues facing both this country and the world-at-large.

  • What are your hobbies? What do you like to do for fun?

I enjoy running, reading, stargazing, geocaching, catching movies with friends, and finding Southern California’s best hidden coffee shops.

  • What accomplishments have you achieved while working as a tutor/teacher?

The high school where I taught Physics required all students to take a network-wide exam at the end of each quarter. For the fall quarter, my students earned the highest average in the network, outperforming three other seasoned teachers’ classes.

I expect this was accomplished due to an understanding of students’ individual needs and data-driven planning designed to maximize students’ strengths and focus on key areas of misunderstanding.

  • What do you enjoy the most about tutoring/teaching?

I will never get tired of watching lecture-weary students leap into action at the sight of “science toys” (i.e., lab equipment). Some students who tried their best to doze off in class continuously amazed me during lab experiments. It’s a testament to the fact that all students learn differently.

Helping students discover how they learn is – in my opinion – the greatest reward of teaching. It not only involves a great deal of discovery and reflection, but also ensures they are prepared for academic challenges in the future.

  • What do you enjoy the most about tutoring/teaching?

I enjoy knowing that I’m helping young kids to become better students who will hopefully enjoy the process of learning. I want to help them be the best students possible so that hopefully, one day, their only obstacle after high school is deciding what field of study that they are going to go into and help change forever.

We selected Mackenna Wells as our November 2014 Student of the Month. Mackenna receives her tutoring in Eastvale. She is a senior at Eleanor Roosevelt High School. We have been working with Mackenna, since she started her sophomore year, for more than 2 years now; we have helped her with subjects ranging from Geometry, to Chemistry, Algebra 2, and more. This school year, Mackenna has been working with our tutor Judy to improve her understanding of Statistics.

Throughout all the years that we have worked with Mackenna, she has proven to be a dream student to work with. Her current tutor, Judy, has really enjoyed being Mackenna’s tutor. When asked how she would describe Mackenna, Judy responded, “She is a highly motivated and intelligent individual. She is a hard worker that puts 100% effort in everything she does. She is also a very kind-hearted young woman who is proactive in her community. She has guided the establishment of the new Best Buddy chapter at her school which is a club that assists students with special needs and disabilities”. It is clear that Mackenna not only wishes to succeed academically and achieve her own personal goals, but she also looks beyond her own needs and helps other individuals, through her club, to achieve their own goals. We greatly admire young individuals who are selfless, like Mackenna has proven to be, and who work towards making the world a better place, not only for themselves, but also for others.

Judy has seen Mackenna’s understanding of statistics blossom during the time that they have worked together. Judy said, “Before we started tutoring for statistics, Mackenna stated that math had never been her strongest subject nor was it ever her favorite. In terms of grades in tests and quizzes that she has acquired thus far, Mackenna has demonstrated clear improvements, obtaining mostly A’s”. More importantly, Mackenna’s confidence in her academic abilities has also improved thanks to the hard work she and Judy have put in and their shared love of learning. Judy added, “What I enjoy the most about working with Mackenna is that she is passionate about learning and academics, which makes me feel ecstatic as her tutor”. Judy looks forward to continue working with Mackenna and seeing her achieve all the goals she sets for herself. Mackenna is truly a remarkable young woman who has a lot to offer. We are fortunate and thankful that we get to work with her and her family.

Congratulations Mackenna! Keep up the fantastic work!
