I am a recent graduate of the University of California, Riverside where I earned my Bachelor's of Science degree in Biochemistry, Medical Sciences with a minor in Business Administration. I have been tutoring for over five years, three of which were on the UCR campus through their academic help center. I have designed and taught biochemistry, biology, organic and general chemistry, and verbal reasoning classes for the Medical College Admission Test. I enjoy working with students of all ages and I work hard to help my students achieve their greatest potential in academia.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
During my first sessions, I like to assess my student and allow them to assess me as well. This way we can build trust and understand each other to effectively work toward the student's goal.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I want to give my students the skills they need to succeed on their own. In addition to showing them what worked for me in the past, I will train them to use clever techniques and strategies to understand their material.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I like to remind my students why they are trying to learn the material. I also like to show them their progress; when students see that they've developed, it motivates them to keep pushing to their next level.
