I am what people often refer to as a career student. I am an autodidact and love to learn almost anything and have multiple Bachelor of Science degrees and an advanced degree as proof. Through my experiences, I have taken college and graduate level courses in biology, chemistry and epidemiology to psychology, business and cultural studies.
As an undergraduate, I have tutored, led courses as a teaching assistant and participated in research – independent and under a professor. As a graduate student, I worked as a graduate assistant and guided other graduate students (Master and doctoral) in designing their own research studies. During this time, I also participated in research partnering with The Methodist Hospital Research Institute and Texas Children’s Hospital. Our findings have been accepted for publication in which I first authored.
Yet throughout my experiences and achievements, the one that I hold most significant was the work with my younger sister. Being the first generation in my family to graduate high school, college and graduate school, I used my experience to guide her. Through our efforts, she was able to graduate high school in the top 1% of her class and obtain numerous scholarships making her undergraduate expenses all but paid for.
It is not just tutoring that I hope to share with others but the experiences, know-how and results we have achieved. This and the satisfaction from helping students succeed is why I seek to tutor and mentor others.
