What do you do outside of being a busy student? 

I love spending time with my family, painting and drawing, and learning new languages. My goal is to be able to speak five languages within my lifetime. I am currently working on learning Mandarin, Cantonese, and Korean.

How many semesters have you been facilitating? 

One

Which courses do you facilitate for now, or have in the past? 

CHEM 1211

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

My short-term goal is to graduate with a bachelor degree in Chemistry and Biology. My long-term goal is to earn a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. Being a part of the SI program allows me to not only help other students grasp the course materials through different learning techniques but also allows me to solidify my understanding for the subject that I love.

What is your favorite SI moment? 

My favorite SI moment is when my students asked me a question and they figured out the answer by themselves as they read the question aloud to me and said “Oh my God, we talked about this; never mind, I got it.” 

What have you gained from being an SI facilitator? 

I am gaining more confidence in guiding and helping others, as well as managing my time better.

What study tips/techniques do you have for students? 

Cramming is never good. More importantly practice, practice, practice. 

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

In my opinion, Chemistry can be applied to basically anything on the planet; the subject itself excites me.

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

Discussion: teaching themselves and each other during discussion; knowing where to start, how to start, struggling through the problem, listing out the steps and end in a great note.
