I look forward to being able to help you with questions you may have.It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
Hi! My name is Matthew. I am a senior, double majoring in Chemical Engineering and Mathematics. This will be my sixth semester tutoring for the OSL, and I am so excited to meet all of our new students. I grew up in Los Alamos, and I have worked at the National Labs there for the past three summers. Music is my biggest passion outside of school. I play piano and guitar, and I want to learn how to play the banjo, now that I own one. I also enjoy hiking, backpacking, camping, and traveling.
Hello, my name is Mia Navarro and I am a Chemical Engineering major with a focus in the energy industry. In my free time, you can find me rock climbing at box canyon, or playing rugby on the pitch. I've always had a passion for learning, especially in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, but during my two years here at New Mexico Tech, I've discovered that I am even more passionate about teaching these subjects to others. The OSL has given me the opportunity to pass my knowledge and studying techniques onto other hard-working students who are eager to learn. I hope to have a meaningful encounter with each and every person that I meet in the OSL and foster a positive and productive learning environment.
My name is Caleb Belchak. I’m a native New Mexican and was homeschooled until college. I’m a Chemical Engineering Major currently in my junior year. My favorite past times are martial arts, writing my novel, and music. I have some prior practice teaching martial arts, and because of that, I’m very willing to help anyone who comes my way. I’m approachable and easy going. If I am capable of helping, I will help until the problem is solved. And if you happen to see someone who looks like me, don’t worry, you’re not seeing double. I’m half of one of the sets of twins here on campus.
Greetings! My name is Jacob Belchak. I’m a former homeschooler from Albuquerque, now a junior Chemical Engineering student at NMT.

I have no formal mentor training, but I have experience teaching martial arts, and I’m always happy to help answer questions.
Hello, My name is Will Benson, and I am a senior studying Mechanical Engineering. I grew up in Socorro, NM, and I decided that going to NMT would be worth staying in Socorro for four more years. I’m very excited to be joining OSL to tutor for my last semester at Tech. I really enjoy helping other students learn new skills. In my free time I enjoy playing sports, mainly soccer and golf, playing video games, and spending time with my friends. I am pretty easy going so feel free to come up to me in or outside of the OSL and I’ll help to the best of my abilities!Look for the PDF versions of your books first before buying them.
Hey! I'm Nekeisha Johnson, and I am a junior here at NMT. I am pursuing dual degrees in Mathematics and Physics, and am also a member of the Belly Dance Club on campus (you should join us!). Outside of my life here at Tech, I am an avid geocacher, and I love to get outside and travel. This will be my second year tutoring, and it is always the highlight of my day. I can’t wait to see what the OSL has in store for me this semester!
My name is Alexander Kral. I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in both Electrical Engineering and Mathematics. I was born in Albuquerque New Mexico where I lived until coming down south to Socorro. This here is my fifth semester at New Mexico Tech, where I hope to graduate in three and a half years’ time. If I had one piece of advice for succeeding here at Tech it would be to surround yourself with people who motivate and challenge you to be your best. It’s too easy to accept failure because your peers share in that failure.
