Meet the Kaplan University Business Center Tutors

Compiled by Lisa Gerardy, MA, Writing Center Specialist

Last month, we began publishing tutor interviews so that our readers could get to know the people who make the Academic Support Center a great student resource.  This week, we will meet some Business Center tutors.  Business Center tutors meet with students for live tutoring sessions via Adobe Connect.  Their areas of expertise include Finance, Economics, and Accounting, among others.  So, without further delay, here are some of the folks who work with Kaplan’s Business students.

Eleven years total

Why do you tutor, or what is your favorite thing about tutoring?

I started tutoring my best friend in third grade math, and I tutored him in math through our  senior year of high school.  Then, I continued to assist him for two semesters in college accounting. In high school in Key Club I also tutored disadvantaged children in math. So, I’ve pretty much always been a tutor. I love the one- on- one interactions with students, and I love seeing the light bulb turn on over their heads when they catch on. 🙂

Why do you tutor, or what is your favorite thing about tutoring?

I enjoy helping students realize that they can understand the work with further explanation. My favorite thing about tutoring is that once a student has clarification of the concepts, the understanding of the assignment “just clicks.”

Why do you tutor, or what is your favorite thing about tutoring?

I tutor because it is important for accounting students to have a place to go to get help. In accounting there are formulas as well as a lot of terminology that has to be understood in order to learn the material. I want students to learn accounting because it is used in every business.
