I am originally from South San Francisco, California. Shortly after obtaining my bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering from University of California, Riverside, I worked as a manufacturing specialist with the world's leading pharmaceutical company. I spent some time there understanding how I wanted to use the experience and my education to promote public health and medical technology. Such questioning led me to Boston. I am currently pursuing my master's in Regulatory Affairs at Northeastern University in hopes of developing breakthrough medical technology with quality, safety, and effectiveness.
My tutoring experiences range from formal/professional sessions with clients to informal meetings with classmates. I worked as a pre-calculus tutor for one year. I have participated in many after-school recreation programs which included tutoring a large variety of subjects. During my undergraduate studies, I would typically hold informal classes on subjects I strongly understood with friends and colleagues. Lastly, I spent one summer teaching the basics of engineering to elementary and middle school student via hands-on projects, using real-life tools.
I love to teach math (up through Calculus) and science (Biochemistry, Biology) because it is challenging. I noticed most students have a hard time with STEM subjects. However, I believe that everything is possible. I feel that the mastery of a subject is dependent on how it was presented and the limitations you have placed on yourself. My teaching style varies with the student. I like to use many examples, pictures, videos, and funny stories that can help the student apply the concept to in-life situations. I believe when the subject is placed in perspective, there is much more understanding.
When I am not interpreting legislations and reading about breakthrough medical devices, I enjoy the outdoors. I love to spend time relaxing on the beach, take light hikes, and long bike rides. When I am indoors, I enjoy watching full seasons (using in one day) of the latest shows. I spend most of my free time catching up with friends, sleeping, and taking it one day at a time.
