I decided to tutor first and foremost because I feel like if you go through a rigorous course and understand it completely, you should help others come to the same understanding. Especially if you had to really work for your understanding then you should know what it is like to struggle and should therefore be more inclined to teach others. I can relate more readily to the latter. Secondly, I feel like tutoring will help me solidify the knowledge that I have just acquired, allowing me to have more comprehensive knowledge for graduate school entry exams. Lastly, I have thought about teaching as a career path on more than one occasion and think that this experience will help me in determining if that is a viable option for my future.
