My passion for tutoring and education comes from the hundreds of hours I have spent searching for the most effective method to learn new material while retaining the old ones. Not surprising, the most important skill I have learned through my constant search is flexibility and the willingness to adopt new skills as part of the process. These skills helped me successful earned a bachelor’s degree in science from the University of California, Davis and have also helped me improve my studying skills during my first two years of medical school education at UCLA. However, in my many years of higher education I felt a deep disconnect between my learning and knowledge and its application. Helping others through tutoring quickly fulfilled this gap and provided me with a platform to make a difference in someone else’s life. Through college, I tutored a range of student from 9-years-old in after school programs in Davis and Woodland, California, undergraduates in upper level science classes (Biochemistry, Anatomy, Physiology, and Spanish literature and writing) at UC Davis, and fellow colleagues at the school of medicine in cadaver-based anatomy. Given my career choice, I have remained passionate in tutoring Anatomy, Physiology, and Microbiology as well as Spanish literature, composition, and conversational Spanish. Outside my professional setting, I thoroughly enjoy hiking in the sierras and backpacking in the majestic planes of Yosemite.
