Majors: Design & Humanities
Minor: Japanese

Japanese Tutor

Hello! My name is Andrew, and I’m a third year with a double degree in (Digital) Design and Humanities, minoring in Japanese. This is my first year at LAP, and I tutor the first and second years of Japanese. Home for me is Hawai‘i, so I love exploring Seattle (and surrounding areas) whenever we have great weather! I’ve had several opportunities to study Japanese growing up, so I’m excited about helping others grasp the subject too—because the point of languages is to express yourself and communicate with others!

Kaz

Major: Biology & Pre-Med

Biology & Chemistry Tutor

Hi! I’m a 3rd year Biology Major and pre-med. It’s my second year tutoring the gen bio and gen chem series. I also facilitate the gen chem series so if I don’t see you in tutoring hopefully I’ll see you in study group! To me, tutoring is a time and place where you get to engage in material outside of class, you get to talk to someone who has taken the class about any tips or strategies, and you can ask questions to clarify concepts. Hopefully this will not only help you succeed in your current class but also allow you to discover and develop learning strategies for future classes. I look forward to working with you this quarter!
