Madeline is currently studying Biology at Reed College. She is very friendly, encouraging and positive. Her role model is her older sister. Madeline's sister encouraged her to try hard and to have high standards. Madeline believes that by demonstrating enthusiasm, taking her own academics seriously and by being a positive person, she demonstrates role model behavior to her students. She goes the extra mile by taking the time to explain difficult problems step by step, and identifying problems by asking questions. Tutoring is inspiring to her because she gets to help students succeed and gain confidence.
Madeline says "I feel that I am a good role model because I demonstrate that you don't need to come from a wealthy background or a private high school to exceed academically. As a young adult who has successfully held several part time positions, graduated top of my class in high in high school, and completed two years of college (so far), I think that I can show kids that they can make of their education what they want, and that like many things in life they will only get out of it what they are willing to put into it."
