About Me: Hello! I am finishing up school this semester and getting a degree in accounting and math! I am planning on beginning to prepare for my CPA come this winter, and hopefully have those exams completed before I begin a job as an auditor next fall! Some other positions I have held throughout college are an accounting intern at the Dahl Family YMCA, a resident assistant in Angell Hall, and a credit/claims intern at Trane. Feel free to ask me about any of those experiences! Lastly, I do enjoy doing some fun things! I enjoy snowboarding, waking up early to go on runs, and buying movie theater popcorn on Thursday nights and bringing it home because movies at home are free.

Study tip: Work ahead! Whether it be read the textbook before class or get going on homework as soon as it is assigned, it is crucial to start looking ahead!

About me: I enjoy staying active and consuming myself with everything La Crosse has to offer.  During the weeks I am busy with classes, studying/homework, exercising, and eating.  The library is my second home, so I am sure you will see me there at one point.  My free time consists of spending time with friends, hanging out in my hammock, going for runs, bike rides, and rollerblading adventures.  In terms of school, I love numbers and being challenged with figuring out problems.  After undergrad I hope to become a Certified Public Accountant by passing the series of CPA exams and eventually having a career as an accountant.

 

Study Tip: Go see your professor’s during office hours and go to the Tutoring Center if you need help!!!  It is important to build relationships with your professors to show them that you care and want to learn.  Don’t wait to get help on information you are confused about, go right away to prevent getting behind.  This segways into preventing procrastination urges.  It is tempting, but getting tasks done in a timely manner is worth it in the long-run.  There are going to be days where there seems to be an endless amount of work to be done, but I promise, you will get through it!  Take a deep breath, take one day at time, and do the best you can.

About me: I am a Junior at UW-L. This is my first semester tutoring accounting at the Murphy Learning Center.

Study Tip: Study and do homework with classmates. This will allow you to ask questions and bounce ideas back and forth. Explaining a concept to someone else will help you understand it even better.

About Me: I am from Stevens Point, Wisconsin.  During my free time I enjoy watching and playing football and basketball.  I love all kinds of music, but specifically Rap and R&B. I love tutoring and helping other students understand difficult concepts and love when people come back later to tell me how they did well on a homework assignment or exam.

Study Tip: My biggest piece of advice is to pace out your learning.  You are much more likely to retain knowledge when you pace it out as opposed to cramming for an exam.  Also, do not be afraid to go to office hours! Most professors like when students come to office hours as it shows they care about their grade in the class.
