I received my Master's degree in Biochemistry from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2012 and my BS in Biology from The College of Idaho in 2010. Prior to this, I graduated from high school in Washington State, where I took a full course-load of IB subjects (including both Higher Level Biology and Chemistry) Obviously, science has been a long term passion of mine! I tutored in C of I's Academic Support Center while enrolled there, and helped many students with biology, math, chemistry, and writing homework and exam prep. More recently, I served a a teaching assistant for a graduate-level molecular genetics course at Einstein. While my master's has pulled me to the "dark side" of science (i.e. chemistry), I have a special fondness for helping others succeed in biology, particularly subjects like genetics and physiology. My tutoring style is to work through problems or subjects with my student and have him or her explain how they arrived at the answer or point out what they think are important concepts. I do not like to provide the answers to my students without them trying the problem first, because this does not help them grow more confident in the subject. Outside of my academic life, I enjoy swimming, which I did competitively through high school and college, and taking fiction writing courses. I take being called a "nerd" as a compliment.
