My Advice to Walden Students

My advice for Walden students would be to give their best in each class and give equal importance
to all your courses.  In addition to focusing on enjoying and acquiring all the skills they can in their academic journey
and not only concentrating on achieving their goal of obtaining the degree.

My Role as a Walden Tutor

Why I enjoy my role as a peer tutor

I enjoy my role as a peer tutor because it allows me to meet new individuals from diverse backgrounds and helping them with my knowledge and experiences at Walden University. 

What students can expect from me as a tutor

As a tutor, I will always read the student's needs and prepare a session to satisfy those needs. I always aim to provide a friendly environment where the students can feel comfortable bringing their doubts. Usually, we will start discussing the concept in the simplest way possible and then expand more into the little details needed to fulfill their assignments.
