I am currently a graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC-San Diego. I am also a graduate of Florida Gulf Coast University where I received two Bachelor's of Science degrees in Engineering (Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering). My tutoring experiences began while I was in High School, tutoring middle school students in Math, and since then I have been a Teaching Assistant (TA) for three different courses in Engineering. While I was a TA I found that I really loved teaching students and helping them learn, which has helped me to identify my future career path of eventually becoming a professor. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about Math, Physics, and Biology as I find these subjects fascinating both in and out of the classroom. My tutoring style involves breaking complex subjects down into smaller fractions and slowly building up to the whole concept, which is quite effective. Additionally, I try to relate the subjects to the real world so that the student can identify why it is important and fun to learn. Outside of the academic world, my hobbies include playing volleyball, football, or basketball, scuba diving, watching movies, reading, and hanging out with friends and family.
