My name is Kenia and this is my second Full Semester at LPC. I have always done well in school, and always aim for the best I can do. I think having a growth mindset along with putting in time and effort In what you’re doing is the key to success. I joined the Navy at 21 and served for almost 6 years spending most of that time stationed aboard the USS Preble in Pearl Harbor,Hawaii. I went on 3 deployments almost back to back. It was the hardest time of my life, but definitely made me grow as a person and gave me a chance to discover the world.
I was extremely anxious coming back to school and scared I wasn’t going to do well the first semester, especially since my job in the Navy had nothing to do with the career I want to pursue. I was a Sonar Technician, so my job was to locate and collect intelligence on foreign submarines during our deployments. I’ve visited South Korea,Japan, Malaysia, Guam, The Philippines, Australia, Dubai, Bahrain, and Singapore. Ever since I was young I have always been fascinated by the medical field and the world of Biology. I am majoring in Allied Health and hope to transfer to a CSU once I obtain my Associates here at Las Positas. My ultimate career goal is to become a Nurse Practitioner.
I was really amazed to find out how great the Veterans Resource Center is. I only took one class Fall of 2019. However in Spring of 2020 I took Chem 31, Intro to Statistics and Probability and ASL 1A. I utilized a lot of the resources here at the Vet Center and that helped me achieve that 4.0 last semester. This semester I would be happy to help anyone that needs extra help on those subjects, I know how stressful it can be. I really enjoy teaching others and coming up with different learning pathways.
My name is Alejandra and this will be my second year attending Las Positas as well as being a student assistant for the Veterans Center and the Engineering Technology Learning Community.
I, myself, am not a veteran but am currently in UC Berkeley's Air Force ROTC program all in hopes to eventually become a commissioned officer in the Air Force. Interacting and befriending different student veterans has really inspired me to join the armed forces.
I am a Biology: Allied Health Major and will eventually be applying to nursing schools next fall. I have always had a passion for having a career that allows me to interact with different people while also helping them.
This year I hope to be able to help you with Statistics or English. Please don’t hesitate to ask for help! Myself and other Las Positas staff and tutors will be more than happy to help you be successful in your courses. Take advantage of everything that Las Positas has to offer!
My name is Kevin and I recently graduated from Las Positas College with an associates degree in Mathematics. I transferred to San Jose State University, Fall 2020, where I am currently pursuing my bachelors in Mathematics with a concentration on teaching. Courses that I will be tutoring will be Calculus 1 and below.
My name is Steven and I’m one of the tutors for the Veterans Resource Center. I was in the Navy for 5 years where I served as a hospital corpsman. I became a medical laboratory technician by trade and served in several hospital settings to include Naval Medical Center San Diego, Naval Health Clinic Oak Harbor, and even overseas at the Multinational Medical Unit in Kandahar, Afghanistan. I worked in many different areas to include clinical chemistry, hematology, microbiology, blood bank, and various others. It was a challenging field, but it was rewarding and helped me discover my passion for healing others.
Through my experiences in Navy medicine, I came to the conclusion that becoming a nurse would be the best fit for me in the medical field. After my days of active duty service, I became a nursing major and it has been a great decision. Great leaders in the Navy and professors at LPC taught me how to be successful in my courses, and I wanted to share that knowledge. I became a tutor to not only help fellow veterans pursue the same major, but to help all veterans trying to succeed in higher education. I believe that veterans hold key attributes that make them great assets to any company they work for or start, and higher education is an extremely important stepping stone to getting there.
I tutor English 1A, the Biology 7 series, Statistics, Chemistry for Allied Health (CHEM 30A+B), and also college intermediate algebra. My tutoring approach is to take your specific difficulties in a given field, solve them or find the answer, and then strengthen that foundation so the difficulty does not arise again. I also keep in touch with many professors who give me feedback on how to approach certain problems, so I can better serve you.
In 2011, immediately after graduating from high school I started my military career as a Cavalry Scout. In 2013, I decided to attend Special Forces Assessment and Selection (SFAS). After being selected I attended Airborne Training (Jump School) at Fort Benning, GA and then went straight to The Special Forces Qualification Course (SFQC) to become a Green Beret Weapons Sergeant. Upon graduation of SFQC I received orders to 7TH Special Forces Group in Eglin AFB, but had the privilege to attend Military Free Fall school in route to FL. I deployed to Afghanistan to conduct Village Sustainment Operations, where we lived with, trained, and led Afghanistan Local Police and Commandos on presence patrol and combat operations. Down the road I deployed to Colombia on anti-narcoterrorism orders. My roles in Colombia include, advisor to a Partner Nation Joint Task Force, instructor for three different combat skills, synchronization of US Special Forces efforts with Civil Military Support Element and Military Information Support Operations, and logistics for training ammunition. Once I returned state-side, I separated from the US Army on May 1st, 2018 after seven years on active duty.
I began working for Docon Inc, a construction company, as a carpenter a month after my separation. The following year I decided to return to school full time to major in Business. I was able to keep my job, with Docon Inc, but they moved me to the office as an estimator and to assist project managers. I began school in the Summer of 2019 and have been in school since then. I plan to transfer in the Spring of 2021. Tutors and staff members of the LPC Veterans First Program have enabled my success and have made the college experience great. This semester I hope to do my part being part of the Veterans First Program as a tutor and help student veterans. I know the transition from service to the classroom can be complicated and frustrating, but there are programs and resources out there that can help us through difficult times.
