Bio

For the past two years I tutored biology, chemistry and physics to undergraduate students for the UC Davis Academic Assistance and Tutoring Centers (formerly known as the Student Academic Success Center), in both individual and drop-in group settings. During this experience, I elucidated difficult scientific concepts with both written and verbal communication.

For the past two years I tutored biology, chemistry and physics to undergraduate students for the UC Davis Academic Assistance and Tutoring Centers (formerly known as the Student Academic Success Center), in both individual and drop-in group settings. During this experience, I elucidated difficult scientific concepts with both written and verbal communication. I demonstrated ability to teach by asking questions, encouraging stressed students, troubleshooting for errors and sharing my passion for science. Furthermore, I cultivated strong interpersonal skills by mentoring freshman students with positivity and enthusiasm.

During my Neurobiology and Microbiology lab courses at UC Davis, I developed proficiency with lab techniques such as bright-field and phase-contrast microscopy, electrophysiological recordings, aseptic technique, microbial cell culture, CFU enumeration and PCR among others. In addition, during General Chemistry lab and Organic Chemistry lab, I learned lab safety and mastered general lab techniques such as pipetting, centrifugation balances, spectrophotometry and pH meters. Through my coursework at UC Davis, I learned to research scientific literature, design and execute experiments, as well as, perform detailed recording, analysis, and interpretation of data. I am strongly interested in sharing my lab experiences with students to inspire them to pursue research and make their current classwork more engaging.

I completed a B.S. in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior with a 3.53 GPA from the University of California Davis. I have received high grades in classes such as biology, chemistry, microbiology, organic chemistry and physics. Furthermore, I highly interested in those subjects and plan to pursue a PhD in Microbiology. I have a strong desire to share my passion for science with more students to prepare them for rigorous, but rewarding STEM fields.

Please contact me to learn more about lessons. Currently, I am in the Sacramento area but may move to the Bay Area soon.
