MATH 1030

Samarra Merritt

Hello everyone! My name is Samarra Merritt and I will be your Supplemental Instruction Leader for MATH 1030. I am an AP Secondary Social Studies Education major in the Fischler Academy, and I love it! I chose to be an SI leader, specifically for math, because I know how tough that subject can be. But I also know how amazing it can be when you have a support system around you to help you thrive. It's the best feeling in the world when you're finally starting to understand the math concepts that have been confusing for so long. And I'm here to tell you that succeeding in math is possible! Trust me, I went from failing math in high school to achieving all A's in college. And I want to help you do it too! Some interesting facts about me are that (1) my birthday is on Christmas, (2) I kicked cancer's butt in 2019, and (3) Starbucks is definitely in my top 5 things that make me happy. Can't wait to meet you all!

Isabella Capone

 Hi, my name is Isabella Capone and I will be an SI for Algebraic Math. I am a Secondary Exceptional Student Education Major with ESOL endorsement. I chose SI because when I was a freshman going to my SI sessions allowed me to have that extra edge in the classroom. I felt like I understood the material at a better level than I ever would have by just taking the course. I want all students to have the opportunity to further their understanding of a course which is why I chose to be an SI. Here at Nova, I am a part of Razors Edge Shark Teach, The Fischler Academy, I am a sister of Delta Phi Epsilon and I am a member of WAVE. One fun fact about me is all summer I worked on Block Island a really small Island off the coast of Rhode Island. Another fun fact about me is I met Nick Jonas when I was 12. My last fun fact about myself is coming to college I was told to say "yes" to everything in the beginning so you meet new people. I would give that same advice to every freshman coming into college now by saying yes you are stepping out of your comfort zone into a whole new world of possibilities!
