A graduate of University of California, Berkeley, with a B.S. in Chemistry and a B.A. in Biology, I have a strong foundation in math and science. Since graduating from college, I have spent my time traveling to France, working a an academic tutor for middle and high school students, volunteering in the Emergency Department of a local hospital, and (most recently) applying to medical school. My favorite part about tutoring is working to engage students to feel as excited and interested as I do towards the material that I teach and hearing my students tell me that they learn more with me in an hour than they do in an entire week of school! When I teach, I strive to let my students know that they are in a safe place where no question is too insignificant to ask while simultaneously encouraging them to be active participants in the sessions so that they can better retain the material we cover and better analyze problems or questions for improved success! Some of my favorite activities outside of work include breaking out some tunes on my violin or guitar, experimenting in the kitchen with cooking various cuisines, staying active outdoors, and playing with my friends' and family's cats.
