Determined to become a science teacher in the United States, once I transferred from West Valley College, I decided to major in biological science at Santa Clara University. Though bioscience as a subject is very challenging, I found it very fascinating. Since the first time I took a biology class in high school in my home country, I have greatly enjoyed the subject.
While at the age of twenty, I began volunteering at various hospitals and became familiar with the health care system of my country, in the United States, my work experiences in the health industry has reaffirmed my decision to pursue science in spite of the cultural and language barriers I initially faced. My financial hardships coupled with daily struggles in a new society and culture (i.e., learning English) made me want to work harder. Soon, I overcame the language barrier. I also faced and secured a full time job in a dental office where I learned about dentistry; specific dental techniques, as well as the practical applications of biomaterials in dentistry.
From my very first day in the United States, I have striven to excel academically and professionally. I have worked and studied hard to achieve my goals in spite of the adversities I have faced in life. I believe that my previous job experiences in tutoring math and science, and my bilingual/bi-cultural background have provided me with a balance of competence and compassion appropriate and necessary for helping students to become as strong persons as myself. I offer the students my drive to make a positive impact and commitment to provide excellent service to the future society.
I always enjoyed learning math and all my grades in high school and college in math were A's. I also enjoyed teaching it to others and solving problems in study groups. I had so many classmates and students back in college when I did the private tutoring for them. I remember I helped many of them to improve their grades from C to A!
I have a BS in biology and MS in biotechnology. I have good quality of knowledge, background, and experience working with students in different levels in Human Biology, Physiology, Cell Biology, and Animal Plant Biology. I always enjoyed learning and teaching this topic.
One of my biggest dreams is to provide my students enough skills to get excellent scores, and to motivate them to go to college and to get higher education. I like to pass my knowledge and abilities in science to the next generation.

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.
