Why did you become a tutor?
I became a tutor to help students who may need help in chemistry, and may have trouble asking the professor for help (in a classroom setting).  It may be easier to approach a peer for help.

What is your favorite thing about the subject in which you tutor? 
I love how chemistry is a whole puzzle waiting to be solved.  Step by step, each subject ties into one another.  Once you start to understand, that's where the enjoyment starts.

What is the best study tip you have for a student taking one of the courses you tutor? 
I would really recommend repetition practice for each question you are having trouble with.  It may sound obvious, but it really is a helpful way to study.  Not only does it help you understand the material, but it also helps you solve problems faster on quizzes and exams with more confidence.

Why did you seek out tutoring?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Because online classes made it difficult for me to approach some of my professors.     

Why do  you think students should come to Study Lab?                                                                                                                                                                                                              It's never late to ask for help.  Even for small homework assignments, a little help can go a long way.  You never know if that one homework problem will end up on an exam.
