Education: I received my Bachelor's degree in Molecular and Cell Biology from University of California, Berkeley. I graduated with a GPA of 3.8.
Experience: I have over 8 years of private tutoring experience in math and science. In addition to tutoring privately, I taught Algebra 2 and tutored Algebra 1 for a summer program, called Upward Bound, at UC Berkeley. I also taught leadership workshops to high school students at Upward Bound. I have extensive experience tutoring students for the SAT and preparing students to apply to top universities. Additionally, I interned at Berkeley High School in a Biology classroom, where I learned more about the intricacies of teaching a diverse group of students. I also had the opportunity to write and teach my own lesson plan in the classroom.
Philosophy: I love teaching and have always loved math and science, but I know these subjects can be daunting for other students. I am great at explaining things in different ways for all types of learners. I have found that many students just need some encouragement and something explained a little differently for it to click. Whether a student learns visually, verbally, or kinesthetically, I work to create a helpful learning environment.
Additional Experience: I worked for 9 months in a Biology research lab at University of California, San Francisco. I received the Berdahl's Future Leaders Scholarship at UC Berkeley for outstanding leadership potential. I also participated in a very selective internship at David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA for pre-medical students. I was published in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA Impact Newsletter. I am also CPR certified and worked as an Emergency Medical Technician.
