The QRC is a great place for students of any level and any learning style. Though I may be a tutor, I find that I often learn as much from the tutee as they learn from me.

The QRC is an invaluable resource and a safe, welcoming environment for learning. I adore being a tutor here because I get to not only share my passion for science and mathematics, but also provide insight and interpretation that would have helped me, going beyond textbook explanations to connect concepts to real life.

The QRC is a great place for me to begin my teaching career because I am able to understand what my teaching styles will become or find ones that do not work for me at all. Tutoring has helped me realize that I do, in fact, want to become a teacher and I would not have found this out without the QRC.

I am glad I can be a part of the QRC and help students with their classes. The QRC is a friendly, collaborative environment, where I would feel comfortable asking any of the other tutors about a concept I was struggling with.
