Selenha's Office Hours: none for summer

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!

Hi, my name is Mercia and I’m majoring in Physics and Pre-Engineering with a minor in Mathematics. I love being outdoors, meeting new people, learning new languages and listening to music. When I’m not busy with school, I like to go on road trips with friends, work out or volunteer in non-profit organizations.
I am from a small country on the west coast of Africa called the Congo and when I first came here I felt a little bit overwhelmed and was happy to meet people that were willing to assist me and be patient with me learning English. I think it only made bigger my love for helping others. I tutor mainly mathematics (Algebra, calculus, trigonometry, etc.) but I can also tutor lower level Physics classes. I really look forward to working with anyone that needs help with these courses!
