Hi! I graduated summe cumme laude from the University of California San Diego (UCSD) in 2016 with a double major in General Biology and International Studies. In line with my broad education, I have an array of tutoring/teaching experiences across multiple disciplines.
Through the UCSD School of Medicine, I tutored post-baccalaureate students in introductory, and some advanced, college science courses. These courses include biology, general and organic chemistry, and physics.
Through the UCSD Department of Biology, I served as a head teaching assistant for upper-division physiology courses. In this position, I held review sessions for large groups of 250 students, held weekly sessions for small groups of 30 students, and provided office hours for 1-on-1 tutoring. I received an Excellence in Teaching Award and favorable reviews from the professors and students.
With the skills acquired from my focus of Anthropology through my International Studies major, I served as both a writing tutor and Spanish instructor.
To help my students succeed, I do my best to empower them with study habits that helped me achieve not only the grades I desired, but also means of approaching material in different ways to help them master underlying concepts of their coursework.
As a biology major, I was required to master the foundations of biology, chemistry, and physics. In addition to a thorough understand of theory, I have laboratory experience in general and organic chemistry, physics, and advanced biological techniques. If you're also looking to understand the importance and applicability of the material you're learning, I'll let you know!
After receiving a Heritage Award for Spanish in high school, I decided to continue my language studies with a regional focus in Latin America through my International Studies major. As part of my research, I traveled to southern Mexico for fieldwork where I learned to practically apply the academic Spanish I learned in school. I now serve as a floating translator at the UCSD Student Run Free Clinics. My grasp of the Spanish language is thus suitable for both the student seeking a good grade and/or the student looking to develop a practical ability to communicate in a new language. Hi!

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.
My International Studies major required an interdisciplinary focus, for which I elected Anthropology. I took 10 courses in Anthropology, earning an A+ in the majority of them. Topics within anthropology cover all major sub-disciplines, including linguistic, archeological, biological, and sociocultural anthropology. I have field experience employing anthropological techniques as well.
I completed 3 quarters of organic chemistry in college, including Organic Chemistry I, II, III, and a lab course that put into practice the learned theory. I received a solid A in all courses, and I received the highest grade in my laboratory course.
