Kathryn Herndon: Health Information Teachnology (HIT)
Hello everyone! I am working on becoming a medical coder. I have completed the SBCC
medical coding program and I will be taking my AHIMA coding certification exam soon.
I have done this medical coding program exclusively online with SBCC and I have enjoyed
it very much. The flexibility of being online helped out a lot during the pandemic.
It gave my husband and I a chance to work and raise our family remotely. I have my
Bachelor's Degree in Sociology from California State University, Northridge and I
will be completing my Associates Degree in HIT soon as well. I enjoy working on my
education, and I look forward to having a career in health information and assisting
other HIT student's on their journey.
Available by appointment Tuesday-Friday. Tutoring for HIT 101, 102, 240 & 255. Please
let me know if you have any questions about the HIT program. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment or just to say "Hi".
Rawle Paul: Mathematics
Rawle is a 2 year student majoring in Mathematics for transfer, Co-President of the
Honors College, and PEGS tutor in MATH 97, 107 and 137. As a second-year student at SBCC, Rawle has learned that community is one of the most
important parts of success in college. PEGS has provided him an opportunity to contribute
to that community through serving as a peer tutor for post-traditional students and
providing an outlet for pressing questions that may present an obstacle to students
returning to the academic atmosphere after a period of time. In addition to math tutoring,
Rawle can also provide guidance in economic courses and answer questions about the
Honors Program at SBCC.
Fall semester schedule:
Rawle is available to tutor for Mathematics, specifically Math 97, 107 and 137. He
is also available to help with Economics courses and information on Honors programs.
Rawle is available Tuesdays and Fridays 12pm-3pm.
Liz Munday: Psychology and Sociology
Hello everyone! I am a recent SBCC graduate – Spring of 2021 – and a new transfer
student to UC Santa Barbara. While I graduated from SBCC with degrees in Psychology,
Sociology, Criminology, and Liberal Arts in Social and Behavioral Sciences and Arts
and Humanities, my transfer major is Sociology with a minor in Applied Psychology.
I have tutored for both sociology and astronomy here at SBCC for the past two years
and am excited to now tutor for psychology as well. My educational goal is to apply
to the sociology MA/PhD program at UCSB where I can dive into research and then move
on to my career goal of teaching at a community college.
If you find yourself in need of any organizational or time management tips/advice,
please do not hesitate to reach out. It is my passion! As a working mother of a freshman
in high school and a first-time college student myself, I know that juggling multiple
schedules and commitments can be challenging or feel overwhelming at times. I would
love to help you review your class schedules, assignment due dates, and other commitments
and create a game plan/study schedule that works for you. Have a great semester!
Spring semester schedule:
Tuesday 12p - 2p
Thursday 10a - 12p
Friday 1:30p - 3p
