If you think that your accounting class or economics class is the hardest class in the world, you are not alone! For some reason, I really struggled with my accounting 201 class. I find that kind of odd because I am a business major. Anyhow, I knew that Clark offered math and English tutoring among a wide variety so I was hoping that there would be an accounting tutor as well. On the first day of class, my accounting instructor, Dr. Stephen Walsh, confirmed this for me and introduced me to the Accounting and Business Lab. I am very thankful he did, because I was a very frequent visitor of the accounting center.
The best part about the Accounting/Business lab for me was that you did not have to schedule appointments. You can just drop by and stay for however long or short as you want, within operation hours of course. Not only do they help explain those tedious accounting principles, but they also have tutors for business statistics, finite math, and business calculus. Jeanette, who is the lead tutor for accounting, is very knowledgeable and has many years of experience. Jeanette also has printouts for every chapter to help simplify the steps involved in calculating the various problems. Those printouts helped me out throughout the quarter! They made for a great study guide! I can honestly say that if it were not for the help of the accounting lab at Clark College I probably would not have passed the class. If you are struggling or just want to study with like-minded peers, do yourself a favor and stop by AA4 Room 106.

Hi, my name is Daniel, and I’m a returning student ambassador this year. I am currently attending Clark full time, and I am on track to graduate this June 2017.
In my spare time I like to exercise, work on cars/motorcycles, go to concerts, and watch/play/attend sporting events. It is safe to say that I am pretty busy. Something interesting about me is that when it comes to sports, I don’t particularly follow any specific teams. I mostly follow certain players who draw my attention with their style of play, character, personality, and/or school history.
Another interest of mine is hiking. I really like to go outdoors and explore new places and scenery that is foreign to me. Working and going to school all the time gets really old and repetitive, so sometimes you just need to get out and away from it all. One of my favorite places to go is Lava canyon on Mount St. Helens. The drive up there is beautiful and the trails surrounding the area are filled with an abundance of gorgeous views.
One of my goals (that I will achieve be it alone or with friends) for the spring time is to actually climb the entire mountain. I have done
some vague research in my spare time, and the average climb time to scale Mount St. Helens is roughly 8 hours. What really inspires me to accomplish this goal is that you do not need any special mountaineering equipment, training, guide, seminar etc. Aside from a couple of permits you need to buy online, you are basically at the mercy of the mountain, which I find incredible.
Any who, I will be at the information desk in Gaiser hall all year so do not be afraid to stop by and say hi!
