The Tutoring Center is a great academic resource on campus for students. We tutor the subjects we took and excelled in. In addition to that, all of the tutors have undergone a semester-long tutoring class to polish their tutoring skills. To be able to share my knowledge and help other students makes me happy. As a tutor, I am learning something new with every student.
