The City College of New York (Civil Engineering)
My name is Arelis, also known as Ari. I obtained an Associate's degree in Sociology in May 2015 in Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC). Currently attending The City College of New York pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering. I had the experience to work with students since the beginning of 2013. I started off as a mentor for the Out in Two Scholarship offered in BMCC, where I was able to guide students through the process of applying to different universities. As I learned more, I had the pleasure to expand my leadership skills and obtained the Treasurer position in the club a semester later. As the Treasurer it was one of my duties to interview and mentor potential candidates (other students), and promote scholarship opportunities.
As I entered my new field of interest, Civil Engineering, I gained more knowledge on STEM courses. I decided to join the Latin American Engineering Student Association, the chapter of Society of Hispanics Professional Engineers (LAESA-SHPE) where I quickly got involved in the lives of students once again. LAESA-SHPE is a non-profit organization that gives students the opportunity to obtain different leadership and networking skills. One of them is being part of Jr. SHPE, where our chapter gets to open up new chapters in different high schools throughout NYC and offer students knowledge on STEM. As being the Jr. SHPE coordinator, I not only get to explain the process of applying to different universities, but I also get to interact with my students about STEM opportunities and related questions.
My qualifications go beyond my knowledge. As a student, I feel the obligation to project my potential on my grades. Which is the reason why I have not obtained a lower grade than a B in any of the listed subjects.
As a mentor/tutor, I am capable of transmitting my knowledge in assertive ways so that my students can project their potential on their grades. It has become a necessity to motivate and guide people that are beginning their careers.
The more you ask, the more you will know. So why not let your curiosity expand now? Don't let those silly math mistakes mess up your grades. My name is Arelis, also known as Ari.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
