About Rachel


Bio

I just graduated from UCSD with a B.S. in Physiology and Neuroscience. My GPA was 3.75. I'm currently completing a gap year before I begin medical school in August. In college, I was a volunteer tutor for a student organization in which I taught organic chemistry and physiology. I also was a Teaching Assistant in a Metabolic Brain Disorders course during which I was responsible for the learning of 40 students. My youngest brother is currently in high school and I often help him study for his ...

I just graduated from UCSD with a B.S. in Physiology and Neuroscience. My GPA was 3.75. I'm currently completing a gap year before I begin medical school in August. In college, I was a volunteer tutor for a student organization in which I taught organic chemistry and physiology. I also was a Teaching Assistant in a Metabolic Brain Disorders course during which I was responsible for the learning of 40 students. My youngest brother is currently in high school and I often help him study for his courses, including algebra and physiology. I love tutoring because it gives me an opportunity to inspire kids to love STEM. I believe that scientists are born from teachers who care enough to show their students how amazing and fun science can be. I am a very visual and hands-on learner myself so I will often choose to employ similar methods to teach.

I love math. I always have. I have taken math courses throughout high school and into college up to Vector Geometry. I chose to take the Engineering level math in college even though it was not required for my major. I often tutor my siblings in math. My favorite math subject is Geometry because the problems remind me of puzzles.

Science is my life. I have taken courses in physics, chemistry, biology, biochemistry, ecology, endocrinology, neuroscience, you name it. I have tutored college students in both general chemistry and organic chemistry as well as physiology. I often also tutor my brother for his Anatomy and Physiology course in high school. When I was a TA, we focused on biochemistry and physiology and its relationship with nutrition and lifestyle. Because of my coursework and experiences, I know of many real-world applications that I can use to help make science far more interesting to learn.

I would love to help your child discover how interesting science and math can be. Please contact me if your child is struggling with STEM courses or perhaps just wishes to learn their coursework in more depth. My schedule is very flexible and I would be happy to drive to meet you. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and to schedule lessons.

Super Smart ... AND ... teaches extremely well.

Highly recommend. She truly comprehends multiple science subjects extremely well. We focused on Cell Biology and Organic Chemistry. Very grateful for her assistance.

Doug, 7 lessons with Rachel

Friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful

She helped me prepare for my honors chemistry quiz and helped me get ahead in class! Great tutor, she explains things thoroughly. Will definitely be having her come again!

Emily, 2 lessons with Rachel

My daughter really enjoys learning from Rachel- her teaching methods and content are tailored to my daughter’s needs and learning style. She is patient and friendly.

Lorena, 10 lessons with Rachel

Professional and knowledgeable tutor

This was my daughter's first session with Rachel and she was very happy with her experience! Rachel was prompt to the session and easy to work with. My daughter feels more confident with algebra 2 and we definitely look forward to working more with Rachel in the future!
