For the month of March, we selected Ethan D. as our Student of the Month. Ethan is a 6th grade student that receives his tutoring in Chino Hills. He has been working with our tutor, David, since early February 2014. David has been helping him improve his understanding of math.
The main reason why we selected Ethan as our Student of the Month is because he epitomizes what we believe to be an ideal student. What makes Ethan so great to work with is how willing he is to take constructive criticism in order to gain a better understanding and to grow. David says of Ethan, “Ethan is a very hard working individual and it shows during our tutoring sessions. He is aware of his weaknesses and is willing to work on them. Ethan takes advice well, and applies it to his work. In total, Ethan is a great student and I believe he will continue to improve in his work.”
Additionally, Ethan does not simply receive the information presented to him without a true understanding of what it means; he is also able come up with vital and critical questions which show his desire to gain an even deeper understanding of the material. David added, “He also challenges my input to have a higher understanding.” In the process of learning, Ethan is also teaching his tutor, by posing such thoughtful questions, which is always an added bonus when working with students.
Due to his ability to implement David’s instruction, Ethan is now able to complete his math assignments in 10 minutes instead of 30. Essentially, he has gained a better understanding of the problems presented to him as well as more effective techniques to tackle those math problems. With David’s help, Ethan has learned how to apply what he is learning in school, into real life situations, making the information presented to him gain a whole new level of importance.
We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with such a bright student who is eager to learn. We hope to continue working with him and seeing him achieve his goals.
