My name is Daniel Johnson, and I will be graduating with my Masters of Science in Accounting from the RAWLS College of Business in May 2014! I am currently in the process of applying to seat for the 4-part Certified Public Accountant exam, I plan to start once I graduate. I was first introduced to the TECHniques Center (TC) while on a college visit prior to applying to Texas Tech University (TTU). The services and the people in this department are exceptional and they were a big part of what influenced me to apply and eventually attend TTU. Originally, I was a student utilizing the services offered, such as being tutored and counseled from August 2009 through May 2011. I am not sure where I would be without the TECHniques Center’s counselors and tutors who were always there for me when times were especially rough during my freshmen year. When I no longer found the TC services applicable to my personal and educational needs, I was hired to be a TC tutor. I have worked for the TC since August of 2011 and enjoy the fact that I have the ability to help others like me by positively impacting their lives and improving the students’ self-confidence. I try/seek to lead my students by example, displaying patience and sharing my experiences. I also assist them by teaching and/or reinforcing concepts they have learned in the classroom but don’t totally comprehend. I strive to be an exceptional leader and role model each day. In this capacity, I am able to share my experiences and mentor other tutors, thus continuing to impact other’s lives and further endorse the TECHniques Center’s vision.
