Applying for a job can be overwhelming; in this course I will break down the steps to show my students that it is not as daunting as they may have expected. We will go through formatting and content for both resumes and cover letters to ensure they uphold a level of professionalism. We will then use the skills highlighted on your resume to write your cover letter. We will also go through company culture and job descriptions to ensure the cover letters are personalized to the specific role.
I’m a sophomore Economics major at Barnard College. I previously attended Montclair High School and have been tutoring for six years. I have done private tutoring as well as Barnard Peer-to-Peer tutoring. I am organized and creative, so I can consistently think of new ways to explain the material. I also am approachable and encouraging, so students will feel comfortable interacting with me. I begin my tutoring sessions gathering the problems the student had the greatest difficulty with and after reviewing these I create practice exams from a mix of their past problem sets, problems I find online, and problems I make up to target specific areas the student is struggling with.
