I am a recent graduate with a B.S. in Biochemistry and minor in Biblical Theology. I served as a teacher's assistant for many of my undergraduate classes in biology and in chemistry, helping the student work through problems on their own. I also led a class in which the students would be given a problem set and I would go around and help them all individually and lead them to the correct answer. If I noticed that a concept was not being grasped, I would try my best to explain it, usually in a visual way. Because of my experience in that, and because the students seemed to like me and understood my clarifications, my professor would ask me to fill in for her whenever she had to miss class. I am proud to say that the students even told me I should become a professor! That got me thinking and it was probably because I really enjoyed helping people get over their nerves as sometimes a subject can be hard to grasp as it is intimidating to the student. However, I am now on my way to taking the MCAT in the spring and applying for medical schools.
I should mention that biochemistry, at my college, was basically a program of biology and chemistry classes, including calculus and applied mathematics such as physics and physical chemistry. Because of this, I have knowledge in all of these subjects. I also worked with youth and children for 4 years, so I have a lot of experience teaching people of all ages.
I also took a lot of music and music theory classes. I have completed through theory 4 and have done a lot of singing and performing.
