Autumn 2020 Tutor of the Quarter!
Each Quarter we feature a tutor who has demonstrated a passion for tutoring and dedication to helping students with learner variability.
Congratulations to Steven Shuken!
Steven Shuken is a Bay Area native and a PhD student in the Chemistry department with a background in synthetic organic chemistry. He started working at the SLC as a tutor in September of 2020 and has a continued interest in supporting our students. Steven may be new to the SLC, but he is a well-seasoned tutor. He has experience in supporting high school and college level chemistry students with tutoring and he has taught organic chemistry at the undergraduate and graduate levels. During the Fall quarter of 2020-2021, he’s been supporting students in Chem 33 while completing the final year of his PhD.
