Rafael Gunawan

Hey everyone, my name is Rafael Gunawan but my friends like to call me Raf. I am an international student from Indonesia and a senior majoring in Finance. I tutor business related classes like Business Statistics 1 and 2, Excel for Accountants, Financial Management, and Business Management. But I also tutor non-business classes that I have taken before in AUM, such as English 1010, History 1010 and 1020, and Math 0703 up to 0903. I became a tutor because the learning center has helped me a lot in the past when I was still adjusting to my classes during my freshman and sophomore years. So, I know how important it is being a tutor here on helping students to succeed in their classes. That is why I decided to become a tutor.​

Aditya Singh

Hello everyone,
My name is Aditya, and I am pursuing computer science as my major because I love to do coding. I tutor all the math courses that ISL offers, and I can help you with physics 1 as well as “Introduction to Programming with Python” along with “Functional Programming with C++”. The reason why I became a tutor is that I believe in the concept of learning by sharing and there are many incidents through which I have explored and learned different things in order to help my tutees. Furthermore, I love to dive into the interesting discussion of a mathematical or scientific concept which makes it easier for me to help my peers imagine those concepts. Moreover, I love to help others with their classes so much that I even used to teach my high-school classmates. ISL is one of the best resources at AUM and I motivate you to take full advantage of it.

“Learning gives Creativity, Creativity leads to Thinking, Thinking provides Knowledge, Knowledge makes You Great.”

Aryavardhan Singh

Hello! My name is Aryavardhan Singh, and I am a Computer Science major here at AUM. I tutor all Math courses through Calculus 2 and would be eager to help you with Physics 1 and introductory Computer Science courses. I became a tutor at Instructional Support Lab because teaching and sharing knowledge is something I am passionate about, and it has helped me and my tutees tremendously in our professional and academic pursuits. I love to tackle problems and doubts that my tutees may have in a manner that consolidates their foundations and it has helped them to be more confident in their own skills. I am excited and look forward to work with you!”

Christine Windon

Christine Windon graduated from West Virginia University with a bachelor’s degree in foreign languages, specializing in French. Since graduating, she has been certified as a Laubach Literacy volunteer and an English-as-a-Second-Language teacher; she teaches English classes in local churches twice a week. Creating teaching materials to enable both native English speakers and English Language Learners to grasp grammar concepts more easily is one of her pastimes. As a short-term volunteer, she has taught English in Moldova, Serbia, and Bulgaria. During those overseas visits, she gained more empathy for people learning English; she experienced the challenges of being a foreigner with a very limited vocabulary of the language(s) spoken in each of those countries.  A writing consultant for AUM, she strives to give students the writing skills and confidence they need to communicate their thoughts effectively so that they can succeed in their classes and in the workplace. She tutors writing across all subjects and helps International students improve their English speaking, listening, and writing skills.
