UC Berkeley (Molecular and Cell Biology)
I graduated from the University of California- Berkeley with a B.S. in Nutritional Science: Physiology and Metabolism, and a B.A. in Molecular and Cell Biology. As an undergraduate, I have always been fascinated in learning and experiencing the applications of the knowledge I gained from textbooks to the field of healthcare. Following my college graduation, I worked as a Staff Researcher at UCSF. Through my employment at UCSF, I have had the opportunity to not only to developed expertise in a wide variety of laboratories techniques and understanding in biochemistry and in cell biology, but also the opportunity to contribute to scientific discovery through my research publications and presentations at scientific conferences. Currently, I am a medical student in Southern California.
Beside my academic achievements, I also enjoy teaching others. During my time at UC Berkeley, I worked as a science tutor for the Student Learning Center. I tutored my peers in biological and physical science on a weekly basis. Moreover, I held classroom review sessions for groups of 5 to 15 students, prepared handouts containing extra problem sets, and held office hours to further assist my students. Recently, I volunteered to become a high-school tutor for Refugee Transition, which is a non-profit organization that provide academics support to low-income, underserved, and immigrants communities in the San Francisco Bay Area.
As for my teaching philosophy, I believe in working collaboratively with students in promoting self-reliance and success by creating an environment that encourages discussion and questions at the end of every session. I often allowed my students to assume the role of a teacher at the beginning of every session by asking them to explain to me the content of previous lectures and to come up with questions about difficult concepts explained in lectures. My ultimate goal in teaching is not solely regurgitating to my students what I learned but to provide them with the tools and empowerment to approach learning effectively and with confidence.
If you share a similar outlook in learning and education, please feel free to contact me to see if I can be of assistance to your future goals.

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.
I graduated from UC Berkeley with honor in Nutritional Sciences: Physiology and Metabolism. I have also tutored UC Berkeley students in physical and biological sciences, including courses in Nutritional Sciences. I have also scored a 13/15 and 14/15 in the biological and physical science sections of the MCAT, respectively.
