Describe a memorable teaching experience:
My most memorable teaching experience happened when I was a senior in high school. I was asked to tutor a fifth grader in math. He was really struggling in the subject! I worked with him every day for the last two months of the school year. His average went from a D to a B! It was the most rewarding experience that I had ever had! I was not sure what I wanted to pursue in college; however, after this experience, it was obvious to me!
