Volunteer Spotlight: Geoff Houtz

Geoff Houtz is a senior pre-med student at Duke majoring in neuroscience. Geoff had a long standing interest in teaching and tutoring, and in the Fall of 2012 began volunteering as a one-on-one math tutor with our Scholars to College students.

Showcasing his versatility, Geoff made the transition this year to Pioneer Scholars, where he shares his knowledge with Mr. Brandon and Group 7/8. Working with a wide range of students in both programs, Geoff says across the board the most rewarding part about volunteering at the Center is seeing the students consistently push themselves to do better, as well as their excitement about learning new things.

As a Duke student, there are countless opportunities to volunteer at so many great organizations in Durham. Geoff says, “of all my volunteerexperiences while at Duke, the experience at EKC has been the most rewarding, and working with students directly has had a major impact on my future.”

After graduation, he’ll be joining Teach for America as a high school science teacher in Charlotte, NC. We know your experiences here will prove valuable as you transition into teaching next year, and thanks for your dedication!
