I am a graduate of St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas. I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Psychology. I am applying to medical school this summer. I have three years of experience teaching Chemistry and Biology to undergraduates as a Supplemental Instruction Leader and Teaching Assistant in a upper divisions Cell Biology Laboratory. I am passionate about teaching science, especially Acid Base Chemistry, Metabolism, and Molecular Biology. I enjoy these subjects because I believe that all biological processes and physiology can be essentially explained through the principles of chemistry. Nothing excites me more than helping students grasp complex concepts and improve their grades. I tutor AP Biology, AP Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Genetics, various levels of Spanish, including AP Spanish Language, and AP Spanish Literature and Culture. I am a qualified Spanish tutor, not only because I am a native Peruvian speaker, but because I received a formal bilingual education where I received outstanding scores in both AP Spanish Language and Literature and Culture. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and tweeting about neuroscience, cooking, drawing, and running. In fact, I am currently training for the Nike Women's Half Marathon DC for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
