TLC: Other than a student, and a tutor, are you involved in anything else on campus?

TLC: Would you recommend working at the TLC to your friends?
You: I would definitely recommend working at the TLC! Helping fellow students is very rewarding!

TLC: “If it was not for Amel, almost every class session would have been much less productive. He asked important and provocative questions that led to much more discussion and free engagement with the assigned reading. His leadership demonstrated that real learning begins with the students and not with the professor. I was very thankful to have him in class” – Professor Glenn Moots
