I attended Glenbard North Highschool and then received my Bachelor's of Science in Biology at Illinois Wesleyan University. At the university, I was a teaching assistant for a variety of the science's courses. I currently help with general chemistry and biology whether it be the high school level or college level. In my academic career the sciences were very challenging and I had some of the best tutors helping me along with the process and in part it is why I enjoy helping students. In addition, nothing beats the feeling when you see a student grasp a concept; the whole "light bulb lighting up above the head moment". I simply love the sciences because you get to observe what you learn all around you everyday and my passion allows me to shed light on the subject in a different way that relates to students' life. I was a student athlete pretty much my entire life playing football, basketball, baseball or more extravagant surfing, rock climbing, snorkeling, attempting a triathlon. I know that we need an escape sometime from the books so I tend to gravitate to my guitar or the kitchen where cooking and listening to music is refreshing. Like I said before science did not come easy so I offer an empathetic outlook and try to understand one's thinking of a problem to allow them to see their errors and essentially learn without the standard lecturing format one is used to at school. Previously, it seemed the best way to learn is to memorize a whole bunch of facts and regurgitate them on paper. However, my goal isn't to memorize, but rather learn and retain details, to overlap and combined concepts, to be able to critically think. I tend to be very out going, but at the same time I am here to listen and help, which I think fosters an environment that my favorite professors did when I attended their classes.
