Without a question, tutoring was what enabled me to get an education at two of the finest institutions in the world. I am fresh out of college, having graduated from Stanford University in 2011 with a master's degree in Management Science and from Cornell University in 2010 with a bachelor's degree in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (graduated with honors). But before I started college, I was one of the premier tutors at TutorWhiz Inc., a small company that operates out of Southern California, where I am from. I took great pride in teaching subjects such as pre-calculus and geometry, and it undoubtedly strengthened my own fundamentals. My test scores benefited the most from my after-school job, but the feeling I took away from a successful pupil was what made my job so fulfilling.
