Kaplan Science Center Tutors

Compiled by Lisa Gerardy, MA, Kaplan University Writing Center Specialist

For the past couple of months, we have featured tutor interviews here on the Kaplan University Academic Support Center blog.  This month, we have the pleasure of meeting a few  Science center tutors.   Science tutors meet with students throughout the week for live tutoring sessions via the Adobe Connect platform.  Like all other tutors in the Academic Support Center, Science tutors also lead workshops on a variety of topics.

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

My favorite thing about tutoring is when I can talk someone off the ledge. Often when students  finally come to us they are so frustrated, they’re ready to throw the assignment away. However, after a few minutes they calm down and, with a little help and reassurance, they go merrily on their way, knowing they are now on the right track. It can’t get any better than that.

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

In particular, I tutor chemistry, and it is such a great feeling to be able to take such a scary subject and make it more understandable. In addition, I enjoy the type of learner whom we  encounter in the online setting.
