“For me, tutoring is a opportunity to help someone. In my experiences of tutoring, most people feel shy at first that they do not understand the material. The one on one contact that students may get from tutoring allows them to ask questions any time, and go at the pace that they want to go. As we work out problems step by step, I am able to see the person’s confidence grow along with understanding concepts. That is why I like to tutor”. Patrix A.
“I love tutoring because I have the opportunity to help fellow cougs feel more confident in their academics! I think students should come to tutoring because we genuinely want to help others to be successful. All of us have struggled with a tricky class or difficult subject matter at one point or another, so having the support to keep your head up and keep going can really make a positive difference”! -Erin.E
“Becoming a peer tutor has given me the opportunity to spread my personal passion for Earth sciences and biology. It is very rewarding to be able to see others develop a new appreciation for these sciences, and to know that I was a part of that process. Not only does tutoring provide students with extra academic support but it can also increase their confidence and help them succeed mentally and emotionally”.-Anna. P
“Coming into tutoring is a great way to get support in your studies by people who have been in your exact shoes! I love being a tutor and helping students leave with a better understanding of what they are learning in class every time they come in. Tutors are always there to help you in any way they can, whether it’s not understanding a single question or an entire concept”! Jade.C
