Why did you become a tutor?
I wanted to become a tutor for courses that I have mastered, so I know I can be the best help for struggling students in courses I have already taken. Additionally, as I teach other students, I reinforce the information in my head, preparing me for my future in graduate school.

What is your favorite thing about the subject in which you tutor?
Chemistry can be quite interesting in some ways. Organic chemistry is like a puzzle, especially when trying to solve retrosynthesis problems, and general chemistry provides me the background information to help solve these puzzles. Econ, on the other hand, teaches me about the economy and the real world, and in that way I find it extremely useful.

What is the best study tip you have for a student taking one of the courses you tutor?
For chemistry, always make flashcards or a cheat sheet to review the common mechanisms and equations before an exam. I did this for every chemistry course, and it is very useful.

Why should students come to Study Lab?
If a student is struggling in a course, or just wants to review material before an exam, the Study Lab is the perfect place to help for both of these things.
