OUr Tutors

Herbert Law

 

  • I am Accounting major with a minor in Economics.
  • I do not like math (at least anything that is above calculus) or English.
  • I am originally from Hong Kong.
  • The best study tip I can provide is keep practicing. Practice makes perfect.
  • My favorite thing about Dixie is the professors. All of them are very helpful, and they really want us to be successful.
  • I really enjoy helping students and seeing their improvement. Students become more confident after our help.

Amanda Robinson

  • I am currently a Junior majoring in Nursing.
  • This is just a general life pet peeve, but I hate it when people/teachers read over my shoulder. Also, when people say “could not of” instead of “could not have.” (Example: “I could not of done it without you.” Cringe.)
  • My hometown is Springville, Utah.
  • Learn how you learn best! It also helps if you don’t procrastinate.
  • I love the overall location and atmosphere of Dixie.
  • There’s always a quiet place to study and tutor to help if you have questions. Sometimes we have treats, too!

Brooke Rawlinson

  • I’m a Criminal Justice Major, and I’ll be graduating in the Spring of 2019.
  • I dislike the misuse of “their,” “they’re,” and “there,” along with “its” and “it’s,” as well as “your” and “you’re.”
  • Surprise! I’m from Arizona.
  • My best study tip is stopping while you’re binge-watching a show on Netlix or Hulu (don’t pretend like you never do) between episodes to study chapter notes or read five or ten pages. This helps to break up the studying when you have a test coming up, and it’ll seem a lot less overwhelming if you do little reviews like this.
  • I love Dixie’s small class sizes. I’ve been looking at Law Schools and small class sizes are on the must-have list because of my experience here.
  • I like how friendly everyone in the APC is. We are all here for the same reason: to help the students.

  • My biggest academic pet peeve is procrastination.

  • I love the positive environment that everyone who works in the APC creates.

Jane Lo

  • I’m majoring in Psychology, and I’ll be graduating in 2020.
  • I dislike it when people post an empty discussion post on Canvas and say, “I am just trying to see how people format,” but then they read summarize others’ discussion contributions as their own.
  • I’m from Hong Kong.
  • The best advice I can offer is attending class. Also, turn in all homework, even if it is late. A 50% is better than a zero!
  • Everyone at Dixie is so nice, and the classes are small.
  • Same as DSU, there are nice people in the APC and we usually have a comfortable and quiet place for people to study.

Cassey Mode

  • I’m a Music Education major, and I’ll be graduating in 2021.

  • I dislike people who talk during class!
  • I am from the Draper and Sandy area of Salt Lake, Utah.
  • My best study tip for chemistry is writing stuff down! Even if you have a great memory, writing equations and chemical structures down helps ensure that you don’t forget anything (like charge in chemistry or “unwritten” hydrogen in organic chemistry).
  • Aside from being a great place to pursue many educational opportunities, I love the geography of St. George. Also, some of the teachers are really amazing!
  • The Tutoring Center is a great place to get help and insight for some of the harder science classes. The people here are nice and want to help you succeed.

  • I will be graduating in 2022. As of now, I’m Undeclared.
  • My academic pet peeve is math homework.

Evan Greenhalgh

  • I am a finance major, and I’ll be graduating in 2021.
  • I dislike wasted class time.
  • I’m originally from Seattle, Washington.
  • I’ve found that it’s better to study more frequently than intensely. Studying a little bit each day is better than doing it for hours and hours the night or the day before. Also, in my experience doing a little bit of review before going to bed has helped me to better remember what I need to know.
  • My favorite thing about Dixie is that the area is close to so many cool places such as the nearby national parks, Las Vegas, Lake Powell, etc. Also, the sunsets here are unreal and it is the perfect temperature in the fall and spring. It’s the perfect place for the outdoors!
  • My favorite thing about the Academic Performance Center is how kind and friendly the staff is.
