Why did you become a tutor?
I became a tutor because I believe that the best way to continue to learn something is to teach it.

What is your favorite thing about the subject in which you tutor?
The natural sciences allow us to better understand the world around us, this appeals to my natural curiosity and made me interested in it.

What is the best study tip you have for a student taking one of the courses you tutor?
Don't just expect to learn by reading the textbook and going to class. You must actively learn and practice by making quizlets or doing practice tests on top of this.
