What is your major/minor?
What year in school are you?
When I was younger, I wanted a hot pink “bug” for my first car.
What do you do outside of being a busy student?
I am a freshman representative for Student Government Association and Nighthawks Entertainment.
How many semesters have you been facilitating?
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?
My short term goals are to make the best grades that I can, positively influence people, and make people enjoy science. SI helps me because I can influence people and make them like science too. My long term goals are to get into medical school and become an emergency room doctor. SI and my students push me to achieve my goals.
What is your favorite SI moment?
When you explain a concept and a student gets it and the light bulb comes on.
What have you gained from being an SI facilitator?
I have gained understanding of concepts in a different way because every student is different.
What study tips/techniques do you have for students?
Study at least a week in advance. Even if you make note cards and only look over them for an hour every day, it will help you so much. Don't try to cram the night before.
What do you like/what excites you about the material you SI for?
I love chemistry and I want my students to love it too!
What has been your favorite collaborative learning technique (CLT) that you have done in your sessions?
My favorite collaborative learning technique is the KWL chart because it helps me and the students. It helps the students figure out what they need to know, what they already know, what they want to learn. And it helps me develop more effective sessions over what the students need.
