Samuel

I am currently a Biology major at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. I am in the process of switching into Computer Science. My background is primarily in the sciences and math, mostly Biology and Chemistry. I also am proficient in Spanish; I have received two awards from the National Spanish exam and I passed the AP Spanish and Culture exam. Prior to college, I graduated with an Advanced Honors Diploma from Northwest Career and Technical Academy under the program area of Biotechnology. I have some tutoring experience with my peers and with friends of the family. Outside of school, my hobbies include video games and digital media.

Study Skills and Organization

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Try to gauge where he/she is as far as getting the material, which aspects he/she has gotten down, and which ones he/she needs work on.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Show him/her how to do a few problems, then allow him/her to solve a few problems on his/her own, and then help correct any mistakes as needed.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Show the student how to do the concept a few times and try to address common issues that may cause confusion with said concept. After that, allow the student to try the concept on his/her own and see if he/she now understands the concept.
