I have been tutoring other students since I was a high school senior in 2006-2007. I worked for a local tutoring company with students K-12 in various levels of mathematics. I also independently tutored my classmates in American history as well as biology, drafting a detailed study guide that I sold to help my peers prepare for finals.
I proceeded to attend University of California, San Diego for the next four years. During the summers of 2008 and 2009, I worked as a teaching assistant for the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth Program in two science courses.
I developed an interest in journalism as the Editor-in-Chief for an on-campus student newspaper, which I ran for three years. After graduating with a Bachelors of Science in Ecology, Behavior and Evolution from UCSD in 2011, I worked for three years doing foreign policy analysis for Newsmax Media. During this time, I managed to cover the domestic affairs and international relations of every country in the world and dozens of disputed territories.
While I still love to write, I want to help students discover their potential. I know that learning comes in many forms, although teaching requires creativity and passion to cultivate knowledge and promote critical thinking. Bringing together two ideas in a new way and finding connections between unrelated concepts can bring a sense of excitement and wonder to learning that can lead to success in academia and a lifelong curiosity for understanding the world.
