Why did you become a tutor?
I tutored in high school and it was one of the best experiences I have had. I am very excited to get to continue that experience throughout college. 

What is the best study tip you have for a student taking one of the courses you tutor? 
For physics, PRACTICE PROBLEMS! The more you practice, the more it will all make sense. For chemistry, the most important part for me was understanding the concepts behind what the professor is asking. The better understanding you have of all of the detailed concepts, the easier it will be to answer any kind of question presented, whether conceptual or mathematical.
