Why did you become a tutor?
I became a tutor because I am passionate helping others with Physics.

What is your favorite thing about the subject in which you tutor?
Physics fascinates me because it explains so much about how the universe works and why objects behave as they do.

What is the best study tip you have for a student taking one of the courses you tutor?
Practice, practice, practice! There is no way you can do every possible question that might appear on a test, but if you do enough practice problems, you will be prepared for whatever comes your way. At minimum, I recommend doing all of the "suggested" practice problems and practice exams, if your instructor offers them. Of course, complete all of the required homework on time as well.

Why should students come to Study Lab?
By meeting with someone who was previously taken the course, you can ask questions and have difficult concepts reexplained to you in a one-on-one, no pressure environment. You can also learn about exam formats/what is typically covered on exams!
