- Academic Mentor
Hello, my name is Alex Camagna and I am a recent Graduate from UC Santa Barbara with a B.S. in Pharmacology. I grew up in El Dorado Hills my entire life and graduated from Oak Ridge High School in 2013. I believe that knowledge builds upon itself in all subjects. When helping a student study a specific section or complete a homework assignment, I make sure that the student understands the conceptual background of the problem in its entirety, even for the easy questions! Often times students can get away with completing homework without a holistic understanding of the subject, which comes back to bite them on test day. When a solid foundation of knowledge has been developed, student confidence increases, and they are often surprised by how easily future content comes!
The joy I get from helping students learn, master, and enjoy a subject
Meeting goals I have set for myself
My family and friends
Knowing that all of us have the potential to change the world!
