Language Arts, Reading, Writing, English qualifications:
I have proudly volunteered as a literacy tutor through Reading Partners, helping children from low-income and disadvantaged backgrounds achieve milestones in reading through carefully structured learning. I myself am an avid reader and writer and am more than capable of helping you with English (including but not limited to understanding correct grammar and syntax as well as writing, reading and verbal comprehension). I excelled in my college literary courses and developed a keen eye for editing and organizing written research papers and essays. I would be happy to provide you a sample of my writing upon request.
Biology, Life Science qualifications:
I am currently attending the nation's US News and World Report #1 ranked pharmacy school in the nation, UC San Francisco. Some of the courses I have completed include graduate level advanced organic chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry, histology, and biostatistics. Presently, I have a 3.81 GPA and have been inducted through invitation into the professional pharmacy honor society Rho Chi (Alpha Lambda chapter). I am also able to provide detail on careers in medicine or pharmacy as I am completing clinical clerkships at UC Davis Medical Center and other health facilities in various rotations, including the CA Poison Control Center, internal medicine, and compounding pharmacy.
I graduated from UC San Diego in June 2009 with focus in Physiology and Neuroscience. I graduated with an overall GPA of 3.755, earning me status of cum laude, or Latin honors. I had been on the Provost's Honor list consecutively from Winter 2006, earning me an induction into the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS). My tutoring experience began early: as a high school student, I tutored subjects including Spanish and General Chemistry in Lynbrook High School in San Jose, CA through the school-wide program, STTAR.
I previously served as an undergraduate teaching assistant at UC San Diego in the biology department for two quarters (approximately 6 months). One subject, Human Physiology, was targeted toward non-science majors, while the other, Systems Neurobiology, served as a course designated as a science elective for for all students majoring in biology. With these different courses, I developed a strong understanding of how best to address my students according to their unique goals. My class sizes were generally around 10-15 students, allowing me to provide personalized guidance for each student.
My biology background includes a year long research experience in The Scripps Research Institute of La Jolla, CA, where I was involved in a project studying the structure-function relationship of potassium channels in the brain. I also worked as a research assistant at the biopharmaceutical company Roche in Palo Alto, CA where my area of study involved pre-clinical safety testing for drug development. These experiences have given me a strong background in neuroscience and biochemistry both in theory and in application.
