Why did you become a tutor?

I have a strong interest in helping others. Tutoring is a great opportunity for me to give back to the university and also gain a deeper understanding of the concepts I am explaining. I enjoy helping somebody solve a question or understand a tricky concept or topic and find it very rewarding when it comes full circle and they comprehend what was once confusing to them before walking in.

What advice do you have for incoming students?

Be proactive and don’t be afraid to ask for help! Now is the time to learn and make use of all the resources available to you whether it be on campus, off campus, over the internet, etc. Figure out what learning methods work best for you and stick to it.

What advice do you have for incoming students?

There’s always a chance to get a better grade, especially when you aim for A+ from the very first day. To deal with procrastination: do not worry about upcoming things. Start preparing when it comes to your mind, as it’s the best solution to all the difficulties.

Internship: Quality Inspection Intern at Comet USA

Why did you become a tutor? 

I had the great opportunity to be a tutor over at De Anza, which gave me great experience for my first part time job. I'd be honored to continue serve here at SJSU and to improve understanding of statistics between peers. 

What advice do you have for incoming students?

Don't be afraid to make mistakes. The worst that will happen is you'll get pointed in the right direction. I struggle with this a ton too, swing by and we can work out solutions together. Your problems don't need to be math related!

Why did you become a tutor?

One of the reasons I become a tutor is because I really appreciate the people who helped me when I struggled with some of the classes; so, I want to give back and help other students who are struggling with their classes as well. Besides that, I enjoy helping and working with people. I hope I can learn something new and gain experiences during this process.

What advice do you have for incoming students?

There are a lot of on campus resources available to every student. Try to get involve and engage yourself in clubs and organizations. There are no such thing as stupid questions so feel free to ask any questions if you are confused or lost. Lastly, learn to stop procrastinating and work hard play hard.


Anisha Meka
Major: Business Administration: Management Information Systems (MIS)






Why did you become a tutor?

I have a passion for helping people out as much as I can. When I was taking hard classes, I found that talking with someone about the subject led to further clarity in my mind. Not only did I understand the concept, but I left feeling more confident about what I learned in class.

What advice do you have for incoming students?

Don't wait until the last minute to clarify a concept or question. Always try to come in ahead of time, so that you don't have to stress!

Which student organizations are you a member of a student involvement experience?

I am currently a member of the Banking & Investment Association (BIA). I used to be a member of the Financial Management Association (FMA) and the Silicon Valley Fund (SVF).

Why did you become a Tutor?

I became a Tutor to lessen my tuition burden and promote a better understanding of the general ideas of finance. As an international student, I would like to make use of this chance to exchange and enhance my understanding of different views from around the world and find long-lasting friends in the U.S.

What advice do you have for incoming students?

My advice for incoming students would be to ask them to find a good reason to be in college. Without such reason as an anchor, sooner or later, we college students tend to float around, deviate from our goals, and waste away the best years of our lives.

What advice do you have for incoming students?

My advice is do not procrastinate and do not let yourself fall behind. If you have time to do your homework, just do it. If you don’t understand a problem, you can figure it out by yourself through lessons on YouTube or other websites; and you can ask you professors, your peers, and your tutors.

I became a tutor because I want to help those during their times of frustration. After several years of receiving tutoring, I realized that it can help eliminate the stress of taking challenging courses.
