I am a chemical engineer who would like to help teach others
Teaching has always been something of great passion. I spend around 40 hours per week putting my life into learning, and feel that I would like to start giving it back. I have done some tutoring before, and now that I am at university, I would like to pursue tutoring further, including teaching a wider range of subjects.
In my second year at university, I was elected as president for the chemical engineering society. This means ultimate responsibility for the general wellbeing of my peers, including offering academic help to those in the year below me. Working with them, teaching them the material I learned in my first year, enlightens them on a level that a lecturer cannot provide, creating a strong bond between us and making me appreciate the value of both teaching and learning together. When I teach, I also learn what makes each student tick, how to help them specifically and the importance of enjoying learning.
In terms of background, my strongest subject has always been maths, and I play a few musical instruments. I have a grade 8 in flute and saxophone and grade 7 in piano, so teaching my skills would complete my love for music. In my mind, maths and science are vital components of music, so when I learn, they harmonise with one another. Also, I write poetry. This year, I published my complete works so far. My interest in literature makes for a pleasant alternative to my science-based course, and I am looking to publish a second poetry book in the next few years.
In conclusion, teaching has always meant a great deal to me. Now that I am learning on a level higher than I have ever experienced, I greatly anticipate influencing others and potentially making a positive impact on their future.
