Max graduated from Washington University in St. Louis last year and is in the process of applying to medical school. When he is not working in a pulmonary research lab at the Washington University School of Medicine, he is volunteering his time tutoring Simone, a YLC student.
Max had this to say about his volunteer experience: “I would have to say my favorite part about volunteering at YLC would be the continuous contact I am able to have with one student, so that I have now reached a point where I can say I have a true connection with the student I work with, and I feel that I not only give her academic advice, but have a connection with her more as an older life mentor and role model. I would just like people to know how happy I have been as a tutor at YLC for more than two years, and what's more important is that I feel each year YLC has improved and really taken the suggestions we tutors give them, so I can now truly say the smoothness of operations as improved drastically from when I first started out. Thank you for the past two years!”
