“Tutoring this semester was a great experience. I learned a lot about myself as a teacher, mentor, friend, and motivator. ”
“It sounds somewhat hokey but I am excited about learning, and as it turns out that this is even more valuable than the answers to math problems”. “I think the most fulfilling part about being a tutor is wallking into the LAP and finding students that I had tutored helping one another, I felt a small twinge of rejection but that soon passed, replaced with overwhelming pride”.
“I learned that I could really make a difference in peoples lives by giving back”.
“I soon realized that this would be a life changing experience. The rooms bustled with a synergy that uniquely charge students minds and tutors hearts”.

“I really enjoy tutoring, and I make a lot of frineds in the LAP. LAP is an international family”.

“I have also learned the truth in the saying “give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach him to fish and he will eat all his life”, in tutoring this is called the Socratic method”.
“Not only has tutoring taught me a lot about other students and about math, it has taught me a great deal about myself.”
“ There is something about helping another individual learn and understand that makes you feel good inside.”
“I almost felt like I was not properly tutoring because I felt I was learning so much more from the students than they were from me.”
“Being in the LAP made me feel good, a part of something special. A place where the students are the teachers and the teachers (tutors) are the students.”
“Tutoring has opened a new world to me and I hope that the students that I have dealt with feel the same way.”
“I was excited and stimulated to discover that I did not need to know everything in my area of tutoring. I was empowered, not weakened, by having to say, I don't know, but I will find out.”
“Every student I tutored inspired me in my own journey.”
“Since I sarted tutoring, I've gained a better knowledge in life. I've learned things about myself by learning about others.”
“Why am I doing this?”
