Hello my name is Derrick Tate and I am a junior here at Sam Houston State University. I’m studying for a B.S. in Kinesiology with a minor in Secondary Education. I am a student but I am also a LSS mentor/student assistant for Project CONNECT. With my degree I want to become a teacher for high school and a football coach and ultimately move up the ranks to college or pro coaching. I love sports being from Houston I go for all of the Houston sports teams: Texans, Rockets, Astros, etc. I really like helping others which is why I enjoy my job when it comes to mentoring people who just need that extra push from somebody who knows what they are going thru far as trying to succeed in college. My ultimate goal is to drive students who may not have any support from nobody and to encourage them to keep on going. Do not give up on your goal to graduate from college, because if you could get accepted to college you surely can graduate.

My name is Selenha and I am a senior here at Sam Houston State. I am majoring in Victim Studies with a minor in Spanish. Although I am fluent in Spanish, I decided to take it as my minor because I understand that it an important language in our society. With my major I plan to work in Child Protective Services or work with abused women and children. I love my major because I believe in helping other people who have struggled in the past should be something important. Some of my hobbies include shopping and listening to music. On my free time I like to read and play video games.
Starting school here at Sam, I had trouble with some of my classes and I didn’t know where to go to get help. So some classes became quite difficult for me. I would have been so grateful if I would have known about Project Connect and how they offer tutoring for students. I believe that helping each other is an essential part of our community as students. Now I have the opportunity to tutor students and help them with their courses. I will be tutoring Spanish (Elementary 1 and 2, Intermediate 1 and 2, Grammar and Composition, Conversational Spanish 1 and 2), Political Science (Public Policy), and English (Composition 1 and 2). I would be honored to tutor anyone who needs help, so don’t be afraid to ask!
