I am currently completing a bachelor's of science in neuroscience at the University of Southern California. I will graduate from USC with honors in May, and although I am originally from the Midwest, I plan to stay in the Los Angeles area. My course background includes a full load of college-level premed courses (three years of biology, a full year of organic chemistry, biochemistry, etc.), and my favorite subjects are math, physiology, and writing.
I love teaching! I am a registered college science tutor at USC, and I also teach younger students at a weekly Girl Scout program in Watts. In high school, I tutored for the SAT as well as teaching swimming lessons for over four years, so I am very confident in my ability to make complicated topics understandable. My favorite area is standardized testing. I love the look on a student's face when they realize that they don't have to be nervous about an exam - that it can actually be really fun if the questions are viewed as the simple patterns they really are.
In my free time, I love watching movies, reading, swimming, and exploring the city. I also play in a weekly ice hockey league and lately have been busy with a new puppy!
