I am a graduate of the University of Chicago looking for an opportunity to utilize my extensive science background to motivate and inspire children and adults to excel in fields of science. My passion for science education is demonstrated by my time and commitment to mentoring, training and supervising young minds while obtaining my doctoral degree. I trained and mentored at least three different undergraduate students with little science experience in hopes that they would find science as fascinating as I do. I trained and supervised their work and was very proud when one of the students presented their work at the Chicago Area Undergraduate Research Symposium. I also found time to volunteer with the Bio Outreach Program on campus. As part of the Bio Outreach program I worked closely with a Chicago-area high school teacher who taught Advanced Biology. I was a guest lecturer and together we worked to present a mini research symposium at the end of the school year for the student body. I discovered mentoring to be so rewarding that I even found time to volunteer as a science fair judge for a variety of elementary schools during my doctoral studies. Thus, in addition to pursing my own career goals, I have devoted much time and effort to inspire future scientists ranging in age from elementary school age to undergraduate students. I am also bilingual. Having studied Spanish from second grade through college due to a special immersion program. Therefore, I can tutor Spanish as well and I look forward to helping you achieve your goals and dreams.
