How have you represented PTP? I’m always trying to represent PTP as an incredibly useful and accessible tool for all Northeastern Students. I think it’s awesome that for most courses anyone can get the help they need for free! I try to be an active tutor by getting to know my regular tutees in my sessions as well as encouraging people I meet to seek out tutoring if they need help.
How has PTP impacted you? PTP has bettered me in many ways. I find that I am a more coherent speaker and can convey concepts more effectively. I’ve also become quite good at taking a step back and looking at the content from the tutee’s perspective to help them learn how they learn best. I am also interested in pursuing medical school, and tutoring has been super helpful with reinforcing and staying up to date with my chemistry knowledge.
Student Testimonial: “Jonathan is the best organic chemistry tutor EVER! Like I have never understood organic chemistry this much and he’s extremely patient. I definitely feel more prepared for the test because of him.”
