Peer Tutoring

 

    

Hey! My name is Matthew, and I’ll be 1/3 of your peer tutoring staff this year. This is an exciting thing because even though I’ve been at Napa Valley College for over a year now, I know that there are loads of lovely and intelligent students I haven’t met yet. By next fall, I expect these loads to be a bit lighter. Academically, I’m interested in a combination of business and social/environmental sustainability, but I’m an artist at heart. Give me any medium, instrument or utensil, and I’ll find some (horribly abstract) way of using it. In my free time ­­-- when it exists – I try to find quirky things to do around the Bay that are so different from my daily life and style that they make me laugh. Just the other day, to give an example, I put on a flannel shirt and line-danced in a barn with a group of what turned out to be strangers that all knew each other. More on point, I really look forward to seeing you soon (and helping you if I can), and I promise to not make you line-dance with me… unless that’s the sort of thing you’re into.

 

  

   

Hey students! The name is Briana, but you can just call me Bri.  This semester and next semester, I'll be one of your peer tutors! To give you a little of my background, in my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends, drawing, and playing tennis (just to name a few). Academically, I am pursuing a degree in the sciences in order to become a cancer specialist. So, you're probably wondering, why doesn't my major/career choice coincide with my job as an English tutor? To be completely honest, English has always been one of my favorite school subjects! On top of that, I deeply enjoy helping others improve  their English skills, so if you have any questions, you can always come to me. Other than that,  I look forward to working with you and getting to know you, if that chance comes around!
