JOHN: Hello, allow me to introduce myself. My name is John Guimon and I'm currently pursuing a degree in physics from Wesleyan University, which would not have been possible without the help I received during my time here at MxCC. As the ongoing pandemic disrupts the normal flow of our lives and of our education, I believe that the services that we provide here at the ASC are more essential than ever. All of you are strong and resilient, pursuing your education in the face of our current calamities and these difficulties are only compounded by having to wrestle with new and unfamiliar technologies. But know this. You are not alone. I, for one, as well as my colleagues here at the ASC are here to support you. I've been at the ASC since the Fall of 2019. I began working with students who have special needs, confronted with challenges like autism, bipolar, and other personality "disorders," as well as the atypical learning challenges faced by non-traditional students. This taught me a great deal about catering to each student's particular needs and it helped me develop my empathy and patience. I'm dedicated to helping each student find his or her unique learning process. If I've learned one thing it's that all students are different and not everyone fits into the cookie-cutter learning methods of our conventional educational institutions. In fact, that tends to be the exception not the rule. As such, I'm dedicated to assessing a student's passions and interests to help unfurl an excitement for learning. So on that note, feel free to come to me for help on a variety of subjects. I tutor mathematics at all levels, chemistry, physics, all the engineering courses offered at MxCC, philosophy, a bit of history, and English. There's nothing quite as satisfying to me as facilitating someone's growth and success and so I look forward to learning about what will help you.
