About Leah

I recently graduated from UCLA with a degree in Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics. I am currently in the process of applying to dental school therefore I have taken all rigorous coursework including the Dental Admissions Test. My major required to me take general education courses such as general biology, general chemistry and organic chemistry, which I excelled at. I had the opportunity to conduct research in organic chemistry and present this research at the 248th ACS National Conference in San Francisco, therefore I have a strong background in chemistry. Also, as required for my major, I have taken difficult upper-division courses such as biochemistry, bacterial infections and genetics.
I've been tutoring freelance for six years in an array of subjects. I have tutored students from high school and university level through my school and through different non-profit programs. I love being able to teach students and see them succeed because of the hard work they put in. My favorite thing about tutoring is teaching students how I learned and approached certain topics!

General biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

I was one of the six students chosen to participate in a very competitive and advanced organic chemistry research project, where we synthesized a new family of dendritic hybrids with selective cytotoxicity. I had the honor of presenting my research to peers and professors at the GCC Science Lecture Series and also presented a poster in the organic chemistry division at the 248th ACS National Meeting in San Francisco. As is evident, I am a student with a solid background in chemistry.

Organic Chemistry

I was one of the six students chosen to participate in an advanced organic chemistry research project where we synthesized a new family of dendritic hybrids. As a student, I greatly benefited from this experience and had the honor of presenting our research the 248th ACS National Meeting in San Francisco in August 2014. As a first author of that presentation, I insisted on applying for the organic chemistry division even though we were merely representing a community college. My confidence in the importance and value of our research paid off as we were accepted to give a poster presentation in such a prestigious and competitive division. I love organic chemistry and did well in both semesters of the course!
