As an Educational Studies concentrator, I've found peer tutoring to be an immensely useful experience that is preparing me for future work as a math educator. In addition to looking fantastic on my résumé, I have met some truly wonderful people as a result of peer tutoring who have ended up becoming my friends. It's a great way to be more connected to the Haverford community while also practicing useful teaching skills that are applicable to any job where you have to work hands-on with people in a one-on-one setting.—Damon Motz-Storey ‘16
