Tham Nguyen

What is your major?

Chemistry

What year in school are you?

Third-year

Interesting fact?

I have never played a video game before, and I think I will never play in the future. It does not attract me at all.

What do you do outside of being a busy student?

I like to enjoy my free time by myself. Sometimes, I also hang out with my close friends, and we bowl, eat Asian food, and sing karaoke.

How many semesters have you been facilitating?

One

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

MATH 1111

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 in 2019 with a good GPA. My long-term goal is to get a job relating to Chemistry (ex: chemical technician…), which I will love to spend half of my day as well as half of my life. With SI, I learn how to manage my time more efficiently. 

What is your favorite SI moment?

My favorite SI moment until now is when my student figured out how to solve a problem (without any help from me) after attending three sessions.

What have you gained from being an SI facilitator?

Patience and confidence.

What study tips/techniques do you have for students?

Practice, practice, and practice.

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

I like to be a MATH 1111 facilitator because this is the first course of college programs. This course is the base of any STEM class they will take in the future.

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

I think my favorite CLT is summary lecture and practice solving problems because it helps my students remember the lecture as well as grow more familiar with many types of problems.
