Aida's Office Hours: none for summer
|Hello my name is Aida Aparicio and I am a senior here is Sam Houston State University. I’m studying for a B.S. in Forensics Chemistry with minors in Biology and Criminal Justice. Not only am I a student but I am also a student assistant/tutor for Project CONNECT. Thanks to my major I been able to take many class that are difficult but at the same time help me to further help other students. I tutor chemistry, biology, trigonometry, calculus 1 and even some criminal justice. My goal is to help other students understand the material in any way I can. Now that I have said all the important information said its time to let you know how I am. I’m a very outgoing and understanding person so any time you need to cancel an appointment just shoot me an email. I’m just a simple person who wants to help students to do better.|
Selenha can tutor:
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!
