"Students should take advantage of tutoring because it is rarely available for upper-level classes. The ability for you to learn 'how to learn' this early on in your college career will make your other classes in the future easier to tackle. I am excited to help out with student learning and I hope that you are also excited. I believe that if students learn to ask their tutor questions, they will be less timid about asking professors in class."

"When sitting in a sea of students in a lecture hall, you are mostly taking in information as a passive learner. In tutoring, you quite contrastingly have an active role! By asking loads of questions or drawing graphs on the whiteboard, the tutoring sessions are commanded by not us tutors, but you! The advantages with tutoring is that you not only memorize, but make lasting connections from the course material in such a way that you would be blown away by what you are capable of."
