Students help students at the Tutoring Center
Students as tutors are there to give back.
Jacob Michael Munoz, a second-year Chemeketa student who works in the center as a writing tutor, said, “I enjoys helping people succeed. I have worked as a tutor for the past two terms. … I can assist with essays and any writing assignments.”
Munoz said that most of the students he sees ask for help with works-cited formats or blackboard E-learn.
“I enjoy being a tutor because when I needed to pick up my grades, I came here to the Tutoring Center,” he said.
Munoz also writes for the student-run college newspaper, The Courier.
Christian Hunt works in the center as a tutor for Math 253, Writing 227, Statistics 243, and some chemistry classes.
“I really like giving back. I feel good about helping other students,” he said.
Hunt, who is in his final year at Chemeketa, said he planned to transfer to Oregon State University as a math major.
Cecilia Zavala is a College Assistance Migrant Program tutor who works with other CAMP students.
“I transferred here from OSU last year, and I also became a member of CAMP,” she said. “I really appreciated all the help I received and wanted to give back, so I became a tutor. I really like helping others succeed.”
Zavala said she enjoyed working with math and Writing 122 students.
