Meet the Technology Center Tutors

Compiled by Lisa Gerardy, Writing Center Specialist

Over the past few months, we have introduced you to the tutors in each of our support centers. This month, we are proud to introduce our Technology Center tutors.  Technology tutors meet with students in live tutoring rooms via Adobe Connect.  In addition, they hold monthly workshops related to technology courses. Here are a few of our technology tutors.

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

I started tutoring so that I could help students who were struggling learn more than they would get in their classes. It is fun to see that light bulb moment when a student figures something out on his or her own after working with a tutor for so long.

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

I enjoy helping students solve difficult problems. It is that sound in their voice when they have been working on a problem for so long, and you show them exactly how to solve their problem. This alone drives me. I love being a tutor!

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

I have street smarts when it come to helping others; I find what they are comfortable with by asking questions about them, so I can get to know them a little . That also helps me break the ice and the online distant barrier, and then I use metaphors that they can relate to so they can understand the issue that they are facing on their level

I love tutoring because I really enjoy working one on one with students and helping them expand their understanding of IT. I’ve always found troubleshooting problems to be enjoyable.  It’s like working on a puzzle; plus I’ve also had extensive experience facilitating student’s IT projects. For me tutoring is an extension of these interests, and being able to help students understand better is a joy to experience!
