Facilitated Study Groups

Facilitated Study Groups

Facilitated study groups provide an opportunity for students to explore course content and to practice essential skills presented in class. The groups are led by students who have taken the class and excel in the topic area. Student facilitators work with professors to develop materials and examples that will enhance a student's understanding of the subject. Student facilitators also share successful approaches to learning the material and performing on tests.

Hello! I'm Cindy Le, a third year majoring in Nursing and minoring in Catholic Studies. I'm so excited to connect with you! I'm from Seattle and I love to eat, so let me know if you'd like any restaurant recommendations. You can only eat out so much, so I like to cook as well, let's share some recipes!

Hi everyone! My name is Isabel and I'm a third-year computer science major, probably minoring in Math. This is my first year at LAP and I'm a facilitated study group leader for Precalc. I'm from Bellevue, WA, but I originally grew up in Seattle. I love to help students work through tough math problems and reinforce important concepts. When I'm not studying for classes or coding, I like to play Genshin Impact, explore Capitol Hill's food, or make my own boba tea. Can't wait to work with you this quarter!

Math (Calculus I)

Hi! I'm a math study group facilitator for LAP and this is my second year working with LAP. I like to play and watch soccer, hike, listen to music, and spend time with friends! I'm happy to talk to you about any of those things or any math you want help with. Good luck this quarter and I look forward to seeing you in study groups!

General Chemistry

Hi everyone! My name is Susannah and I'll be the facilitator for the General Chemistry series this year. I'm a current senior at Seattle U with a chemistry major and math minor. I grew up in Southern California but have learned to love Seattle's weather. When I'm not studying, working, or doing chemometrics research here at SU, I enjoy reading, attempting to bake or cook, and finding new music. I'm so excited to get to know you this year and be a part of your chemistry journey!
