I am currently taking prerequisite classes to major in Nursing. I want a career that involves giving back to the community and helping those who need it. With everything going on in the world, my career path might change. My current hobbies include painting and eating, my two favorite things in life. I was born in Oakland and have lived in California my whole life. My only goal as of right now is to be happy and stay motivated. I don’t like planning my life out because things can easily change. In the end, I just want to be able to support my parents the way they supported me my whole life. Make sure to keep on smiling!

I was born and raised in the Bay Area around much diversity that would inspire me to major in History. I enjoy all aspects of History, although at times the truth could be difficult to hear. I believe we all deserve to be educated on matters even if there are no direct ties between the learner and the topic at hand. My goal is to do what makes me happy while continuing to better myself, leaving a positive impact on those around me.

I can best help with Java, and know some C++. I am currently taking micro assembly language and data structures & algorithms, so I can expand my knowledge. If I don’t have an answer to your question I’m willing to help figure it out with you!

My name is Dana Rhodes (I prefer Dana or Ms Dana).

It is my goal as a writing tutor to help all students, become more familiar and comfortable writing the English language. Remember the students that take time to have tutoring sessions and return sessions are the students that most likely will succeed in passing courses with a more than average grade. Looking forward to working/writing with each of you.

I plan to pursue a career in aeronautics. I hope to become a commercial airline pilot. I was born and raised in the Bay Area all my life. The goal I always strive for is to become a better me than I was yesterday or the day before. One professional goal I want to work on in the field is to make the people who I am working with feel less anxious and confused and instead leave confident knowing they learned something new. For hobbies, I like to run, explore new places, and draw in my notebook.

My major is Child Development. I love to play with children, especially reading stories with them. Young children always have incredible questions. And I also love to prepare and make crafts with children because they are so creative. I come from southern China and speak English, Cantonese, and Mandarin. In my free time, I love cooking and baking. During the pandemic, I tried to make different dishes. Some are good, whereas some taste weird. It was fun.  And I also love to watch Japanese Anime, such as Natsume’s Book of Friends, Castle in the Sky, One Piece. It helps me release stress and calms me down. I would like to become a caring and inclusive preschool teacher in the future.

I swam competitively for 14 years. I was born in San Francisco but grew up in Alameda. I earned a Bachelor of Arts from UC Irvine but wanted to make a career change and am now pursuing a career in radiology. I have taken Intro to Stats, Radiology Survey, Medical Terminology, and Biology 20A: Anatomy and Physiology at Merritt College. I spent six months teaching ESL at Qingdao Chungwoon Korean school and from that experience learned about the subtle nuances that make me appreciate being an American. I am grateful that we are a progressive country that is making steps towards racial and gender equality. My goal is to blossom in a career in radiology and improve my fitness levels to return back to competing in triathlons. Also, I plan to volunteer and learn more about the field of radiology. I enjoy cooking, baking and am an active officer of the Island City Toastmasters club. I cherish moments where I can help others.
