I am a recent graduate of Azusa Pacific University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, emphasis in Ecology. Eventually, I hope to attend graduate school for a Master of Science in an environmental field that I have yet to determine, although I am leaning toward stream ecology. At some point I hope to get a doctorate in that field as well, but I am still figuring it out. I have a lot of dreams, ranging from being a conservation biology professor in graduate school to opening a retreat center for kids who struggle with anxiety and depression.
I have volunteered as a tutor for elementary schoolers, tutored high schoolers privately, and have been employed as a TA and instructor for college students in biology and chemistry. For me, the best part of tutoring is learning what motivates students to succeed and to pursue their respective passions within the academic setting. I think when you can make studies personal to you and your goals, they become easier and more fulfilling. This is why I love teaching science and math; it's not always intuitive to make them personal, and I enjoy finding new ways for people to connect with them. It's also why I love college essays, because I get to see where the student's heart is.
In my spare time, I read and make bold strides toward learning how to cook. I love hiking and being outside in almost any capacity, I write poetry and nonfiction for fun (I know, weird), and I have been to 34 states. Alaska is next on my list.
