Tutor

MESA ECC

During these two years I was an employee of the Natural Sciences Department at El Camino College and a member of the M.E.S.A tutor team. I was responsible for tutoring students in three different courses:

  • CHEM 1A (Basic Organic Chemistry)
  • CHEM 1B (Advanced Organic Chemisty)
  • MATH 11 (Basic Algebra)

In each course I held two 90-minute-long sessions per week, for which I prepared my own worksheets for the students to work on, and I provided all necessary explanations to the students. These session were closely tied in with the regular curriculum, so I had to communicate with the professors of the given courses on a regular basis. I founded the CHEM 1B workshop as it had never been done before. M.E.S.A. stands for Math, Engineer, Science Achievement and is a none-profit organisation that is helping students attain better academic performance in the natural sciences. I am proud to have been amongs the founders of M.E.S.A. while juggling with my own studies.
