Why did you become a tutor?
I love seeing people make progress and seeing people who once hated a subject learn to appreciate it!

What is your favorite thing about the subject in which you tutor?
I love the logic behind Physics mechanics! Everything seems to have an order to it. Chem 0110 and 0120 explain so many things that go on in the world around us! It’s so cool to make those connections.

What is the best study tip you have for a student taking one of the courses you tutor?
Don’t give up hope! It is so easy to get discouraged when things don’t click right away. Try looking at things differently and using other study methods to help you learn it!

Why should students come to Study Lab?
Studying with other people is always a good idea and the study lab allows you to do that with people who have already been through the course!
