I am a new graduate from Johns Hopkins University with a BS in Biomedical Engineering and a BA in French Literature. I am interested in tutoring students in East Bay area. I have also previously studied at the University of Paris-Sorbonne and I am currently continuing with graduate studies in Bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley.
As a biomedical engineer, my work experience is mostly concentrated in the field of Nanobiotechnology. I have held positions at Carticept Medical, the Bao Lab at Georgia Tech, the Hanes Lab at the Johns Hopkins Center for Nanobiotechnology, the Tereshchenko Lab at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and the AFMB lab at the University of Aix-Marseille in France. I can tutor students of any level in school or college in the sciences and mathematics.
My specialty in French literature is Medieval Farces, which I wrote a 60 Thesis paper of entitled "Les Farces Contre L’eglise: Le Théâtre Comique de La France Mediévale et Sa Critique de La Doctrine Canonique Sur Le Mariage." I have previously taught English to French elementary school students during my time studying at the University of Paris-Sorbonne and I have taught Afrikaans to High School students at the Paideia School in Atlanta. I have a passion for languages and find it enjoyable to teach others languages skills in a quick and easy manner. My BA in French Literature has also given my skills to aid students who struggle to write.
I am also a violinist trained in both the suzuki and classical methods and will be happy to give lessons to any beginner! I have performed numerous times in the Stellenbosch International Music Festival and I have previously worked at the Atlanta Opera.
I was a swimmer for 10 years, trained in both Florida and Georgia. I was ranked 32nd in Georgia for high school breaststroke and was the captain of my high school swim team.
