What is your major/minor?
What year in school are you?
I started college when I was sixteen.
What do you do outside of being a busy student?
If I ever find free time, I like to be with my family and friends.
How many semesters have you been facilitating?
This is my first semester.
Which courses do you facilitate for now, or have in the past?
What are your short-term and long-term goals, and how does SI (Supplemental Instruction) relate to those?
I would like to have a very good understanding of the basics of biology. Being an SI facilitator allows me to think critically about the material in order to help facilitate the students in their studies. I would like to become a pharmacist. SI will help me become a better leader for this role in the future.
What is your favorite SI moment?
My favorite moment in SI is when I see students getting excited to participate. I also love to see them get excited because they have a better understanding of the material.
What have you gained from being an SI facilitator?
I have learned how to be a better leader, how to help others, and learned more about biology.
What study tips/techniques do you have for students?
- Create an outline from your notes.
- (Biology student): Use flashcards to memorize the concepts. Then, figure out how to apply that to the world around you.
- Study for one hour straight and then take a five minute break. You will remember more of the material you are studying.
What do you like/what excites you about the material you SI for?
I love biology because it makes you look at life in a whole new light. The more I learn about the living things around us (and how complex everything truly is), the more I appreciate all of the smaller components of life.
