Hello! My name is Nalani Coleman. I am a third-year student majoring in Biochemistry and I was born and raised in San Diego. This is my third semester as a CHEM 200 SI leader and my fourth semester taking the class! My sessions are fun, productive, and will prepare you for a successful semester of chemistry! SI helped me A TON in my chemistry and calculus classes. Designating time in your schedule to attend sessions is a great way to prepare for exams little by little instead of cramming last minute. Remember that time, practice, and persistence are keys to success! I wanted to become an SI leader because SI helped me tremendously and I wanted to be part of a team that helps others the same way that other SI Leaders have helped me. I am involved on campus with W.S.S. , B.S.S.O. , research, and am an R.A. ! yay! I love live music, fashion, my dog, anything aquatic, breakfast and Italian food! I’m excited for this upcoming semester and hope to see you at one of my sessions! 🙂
Hello everyone! My name is Megan, I’m a 4th year Math major, & this will be my 6th time being an SI Leader for Chem 200 (holy guacaMOLE) ! At this point I have 6.02 x 10²³ problems but understanding this class is not one of them. Although I struggled when I took this class as a freshman, SI saved my grade and I genuinely hope you all come visit my sessions and take advantage of this fun and FREE resource!
I really love talking about traveling, camping, river rafting- anything outdoorsy really (also puns make life infinitely better). So, I can’t wait to get to know all of you and share my best advice, tips, and tricks for having a successful experience in this class 🙂
Hi! My name is Mikayla Krzmarzick and I am a senior at SDSU studying biology with an ecology emphasis. This will be my fourth semester as a chem 200 SI leader (I can hardly believe that!) and am excited to make this semester’s sessions my most entertaining and engaging ones to date! I am originally from Redondo Beach CA but equally love living in San Diego. I became an SI leader as a freshman because I was intrigued by the teaching profession and wanted to get a taste of what lesson planning and student interactions would be like. Low and behold, I am now fully committed to getting my teaching credential in biology after I graduate in the spring! When I am not buried by course work, I am usually hiking in Mission Trails Regional Park, buying new plants for my garden, or chilling at home watching comedies. Hope to see you at my sessions this semester!
Hey everybody, my name is Isabella and I am a fourth year (eek) Biology major with an emphasis in Zoology! Although I am focusing on Bio, taking Chem 200 as a freshmen made me appreciate and enjoy Chemistry so much more. This will be my fourth semester as a leader for this course and I can’t wait to meet you all. Please feel free to reach out, come sit with me in lecture, and attend my session. I can’t wait for a great semester!
Hi, my name is Regan Mukpik and I am one of the CHEM 200/202 SI Leaders this year. I am double majoring in Kinesiology (Pre-Physical Therapy) and Spanish. This is my second year at SDSU but I am from Monument, Colorado. This is my first semester being an SI Leader and I’m very excited to join the team. This will be my second time taking CHEM 200/202 but I also took CHEM 100 during my first semester. Chemistry is a big part of my major and its prerequisites so I chose to go to SI Sessions because SI is a great opportunity to get some extra help in a more laid-back setting. Sometimes it is really intimidating asking questions to professors and TA’s so SI is a great chance to get help from a fellow student especially since its free! I became an SI Leader because it is a great way to help people and stay refreshed with my Chemistry skills! Outside of school I love traveling, music and going to concerts, and spending time with my friends and family. In the future, I want to go to Medical School and become a doctor in the orthopedic or sports medicine field.
Hi, my name is Caden and I am from a small town in the Sierra Nevada Foothills. Growing up I spent much time adventuring, whether it was skiing, rafting, or running with my cross country team. I am in my second year at San Diego State. I am majoring in Chemistry with minors in Biology and Interdisciplinary Studies, which I am looking to use as a high school science teacher or a nurse. This will be my first year as an SI Leader for CHEM 200/202. Last year, I attended SI for Chemistry as well as Calculus and found them to be extremely helpful to my own learning. I became an SI Leader because I understand how difficult Chemistry can be, and at times how much of a struggle some of the concepts can be. I want to help others gain a better understanding of this challenging material and find success in the course. For sessions, my goal is to make other students have that “aha” moment that occurs when a difficult concept finally clicks and makes sense while making chemistry interesting and fun along the way. When I’m not figuring out how to balance chemical equations or seeking out hysterical science jokes, I can be found working out on campus with the SDSU Running Club.
