Tutors who provide one on one help to students:

Help in Calculus I, Math 121:

Veronica Alix: Even though I love math, I am actually a chemistry major. I am a sophomore from Fort Worth, TX and this is the first year I′m working with the Math Support Center. I tutor Calculus I and II. Here on campus, I also do work study for the chemistry department in the chemistry stockroom, am a Rhodes Diplomat (those people you see giving tours), and am on the crew team.

Melissa Coquelin: I became a Peer leader tutor for Calculus in the Math Support Center to pursue my interests in mathematics. As a sophomore, I have to declare major but find I can’t decide between following a mathematics major or entering the biomedical engineering program. I am from Lubbock, Texas, which is about thirteen hours away from Memphis and only consists of dirt and Texas Tech students. In addition to tutoring, I am on the women’s varsity soccer team, a member of a sorority on campus, and a member on the Student Athletic Advisory Board.

John Wells: Hey, my name is John Wells and I’m a sophomore calculus tutor at the MSC. Aside from being interested in mathematics I am interested in Physics and Education. As of yet I have not declared my major but I am either going to major in mathematics or physics. I decided to join the MSC because of my desire to be a teacher after I graduate. Aside from classes and the MSC I am a member of a fraternity on campus and work in Memphis as a high school referee.

Erinn Ogburn:  One of the great things about Rhodes is that even though I am majoring in Music, opportunities within the Math department are still open to me.  Currently, I work as a peer leader for the Math Support Center tutoring for Calculus.  I am a junior from Houston, Texas and I plan on attending medical school after graduation.  In addition to my work in the Math Support Center, I am also involved in research on campus, a number of music ensembles, and work with several volunteer organizations.

Rebecca Miller: I am a sophomore double major in Physics and Biology who became a Peer Leader this year in hopes of helping other students conquer Calculus I and II. I am from Cleveland, OH, whose economy is based solely on Lebron James. In addition to tutoring calculus, I also partake in the Rhodes College Orchestra, intramural volleyball, Search Advisory Council, a sorority on campus, and the Rhodes Society of Physics Students. My other job on campus is to TA several labs as the Rhodes Student Associate for the Physics Department. Right now I am planning to attend graduate school after Rhodes and pursue a career in clinical research.

Help in Introductory Probability and Statistics, Math 111:

Sterling Miller: I am a sophomore from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and I tutor Intro Statistics.   I am pursuing an interdisciplinary major in Political Science and International Studies with minors in Math and Physics.   In addition to tutoring, I do work-study in the Development Office.  I am involved to varying degrees with Math Club, Reformed University Fellowship, Rhodes Christian Fellowship, Rhodes Students for Life, Society of Physics Students, and Philosophy Club.  Although I’m a Northerner, I enjoy fried food and college football (go Irish!).

Guy Handley: Although I am a Biology major, I found an opportunity as a Peer Leader tutor in the Math Support Center. In addition to tutoring the Intro Statistics course, I am the RSAP student director in the Math Support Center. I am from Birmingham, Alabama, which makes by far the best sweet tea in the country. At Rhodes I also am involved in Student Government and am a member of a fraternity on campus. Currently in my junior year, I am hoping to go on to medical school after Rhodes. I have also tutored the Applied Calculus course and have taken the Academic Fund Sourcing DI through the MSC.

Help in Linear Methods, Math 107:

Ben Conway: I am an English major with a concentration in creative writing. I tutor for Linear Methods. I’m from Louisville, Kentucky a city which provides our country with two necessities: horse racing and liquor. I am also a staff member of the Southwestern Review. I like playing bass, archery, pipe smoking, and canoeing. If you want help with matrices or want to see a small hat collection, then I’m your man.

Help in Programming Fundamentals, CS 141:

Kevin Stechler: I′m a sophomore here at Rhodes, and am planning on majoring in computer science, which kinda makes sense considering I′m a computer science tutor. I′m from Westborough, MA, but without the whole Boston accent thing (though I am known to say “wicked” too much). I do try to break out of the computer nerd stereotype by running varsity track for Rhodes, but who knows if it works.

Tutors who lead work groups in Applied Calculus, Math 115:

Keshav Kukreja: As I am currently a sophomore, I am in the process of declaring my major as Neuroscience. I was born in India but have lived a majority of my life in New Orleans, Louisiana. In order to maintain close ties with my heritage, I participate in cultural organizations such as the Indian Association of New Orleans, and RICE, in which I am the Treasurer for the 2009-2010 term. Aside from being an Applied Calculus peer tutor in the Math Support Center, I am also an active member of the Rhodes College Diplomats program and a new volunteer at the MED. After graduation, I want to pursue a degree in Medicine and continue research.

Andrew Maryott: I’m Andrew Maryott. I’m a business major (2011) from Cape Cod, MA. I have tutored Applied Calculus for 2 years. I am on the track team at Rhodes so I understand the demands of balancing athletics and academics.

Marshall Friskics-Warren:

Teresa Zhou: Nihao~~ My name is Teresa Jing Zhou and I am the Calculus group tutor in the MSC. Although I pride myself for being an economist (wannabe), I found that I am quite able in the limitless field of Mathematics (guess I have both of my parents to blame—a math professor and a biostatistician). I am currently doing a DI course in pedagogic techniques in the Math department along with tutoring my lovely mentees. I am technically an international student from Wuxi, China. When the academics are not crushing down on me, you can catch me volunteering at Caritas Village, a community café just 5 minutes away from the campus, which makes one of the yummiest food in Memphis. At Rhodes, I am also involved with VOX, V-day, Advocates for Youth and ASIA. In my free time, I draw manga and read mythology intensively. Want to know more? Just stop me around campus and we can chat—about math, about economics, or just about anything.  So see you around~!
