Why did you become a tutor?
Academic success plays a significant role.

What is your favorite thing about the subject in which you tutor?
Biology has always been my favorite subject and learning about the different processes and parts that help the human body function has always fascinated me. My favorite thing about Organic Chemistry is the mechanisms and figuring out what products are formed in a reaction.  Psychology is a riveting subject and learning about the basics of human behavior through cases studies was my favorite thing.

What is the best study tip you have for a student taking one of the courses you tutor?
The biggest tip for Organic Chemistry is to do practice questions.  Just understanding the subject won't help you succeed.  You have to apply your knowledge so do as much practice questions as you can.  Most professors will give you the appropriate resources to do so.
