I typically spend the 30-minutes before the lab filling the white board with instructions, tips, and reminders, as well as helping the students with last minute questions before their quiz. As someone who struggled academically in their first year, I strive to ensure each student gets the guidance they need to succeed in the course.”

I made sure that students had access to help 24/7, answering Facebook messages, emails, and text messages to help with or clarify assignments. I just want to see people succeed and I feel that by being a tutor, I can really make a difference.”
