When I leave LAP, I will miss working with such enthusiastic peers and tutees. Thank you for everything you have taught me and being a part of my professional and personal growth!

A highlight of working with LAP has been learning from my students and their unique learning styles, the patterns they pick up on that I may have missed when I learned the material. I also love the confidence that leading large study groups gave me when addressing groups or giving presentations.
