1-1 COLLEGE ADVISING FOR STUDENTS APPLYING TO POMONA COLLEGE
1) share insights about Pomona College, major, clubs, etc
2) meet with you during your college visits to answer questions and share more details
Getting into college was a really stressful experience to me, and I was scared to reach out and talk to Pomona students at the time. I'd like to be the resource I needed when I was applying.
3 FUN FACTS ABOUT ME
1) I have prosopagnosia, or face blindness, which means that I have difficulty recognizing faces out of context. Because of that, for the first week of high school, I thought one of my soon-to-be-best friends was actually two different people!
2) I collect fun facts and am currently sitting on a list of about 200 of them. Feel free to ask for the fun fact of the day, I love to share!
3) I have been bitten by a stingray. (Not stung, bitten, and they don't even have teeth!)

WHY I WANT TO TUTOR
The help I really needed getting through my economics and geology classes to date was just someone to tell me when I was on the right track and understood something versus when I was talking myself in circles and not understanding a concept.
As a tutor, I think I'd be most helpful letting students explain concepts themselves, because so many economics concepts make intuitive sense after you talk about them for a little bit. I could then point out if a students has gone a little bit off the rails.
I do similar things in the writing center when I think someone's ideas have strayed a little bit too far from the prompt or focus of the essay.
