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.

Mercia's Office Hours: TBA

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!
