I graduated from University of California- San Diego, with a Bachelor's of Science in Biochemistry & Cell Biology, and a Revelle College focus in History. I have knowledge in a variety of fields, my strongest one being Biology.
Currently, I am working as a Research Intern at the UCSD School of Medicine, doing work in the field of Bioinformatics.
Throughout my education, I have had multiple opportunities to be a Mentor to others. Starting in high school, I worked with students, in a one-on-one manner or within small groups, supplementing Mathematical concepts and teaching problem solving. Later, I provided informal tutoring to peers struggling with Introductory Biology, Molecular Biology, and Biochemistry. During my senior year, I worked as a Business Technology Intern, at Pfizer, where I had the opportunity to present teaching seminars to my software-IT colleagues about the biological foundation of the diseases and laboratory techniques that the Scientists at Pfizer use in their labs.
As a Tutor, one of my core beliefs is that the student should truly understand the reasoning behind a correct answer and why the other answers are incorrect. Doing so builds a strong foundation and when confronted with an especially challenging question, that cannot be answered by rote learning, the student can use reasoning and logic to figure out the answer. The amount of knowledge one needs know to succeed in Biology can be intimidating, but by constantly and consistently building such a foundation, I believe that the student will be able to excel.
