What are your short-term and long-term goals, and how does SI (Supplemental Instruction) relate to those?

My long term goal is to go into aerospace, and SI gives me a great experience towards that end by helping me solidify my knowledge through teaching of the foundational courses.

Seeing people's grades improve as a result of attending SI sessions.

What have you gained from being an SI facilitator?

The opportunity to use what I have learned to help others, and teach them about something that interests me.

What study tips/techniques do you have for students?

Don't try and cram or pull all-nighters. Eat, sleep, and don't stress it.

What do you like/what excites you about the material you SI for?

I love learning about how stuff works, and although I plan to be a physicist of sorts, Chemistry is still the foundation of pretty much everything.

What has been your favorite collaborative learning technique (CLT) that you have done in your sessions?

Having students come up with their own questions for each other, which gives them an opportunity to teach the material.
