I am currently working on my Master’s degree in Education. My area of specialization is Biology. I have a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biological Sciences from Florida Atlantic University. I have been teaching since 2010 on a simple philosophy: No matter how complex a topic is, it is possible to simplify it to a level where anyone can understand it fully. My passion is to break down complex topics into simpler ones. I am a strong believer of Bruner’s Spiral Curriculum. This particular methodology is composed of three parts. They are: revisiting a topic/subject area frequently, increasing the complexity of the topic with each revisit, and learning to relate previous knowledge with the new one. Following this model, students can learn more effectively and retain most of the information and use that in the future. Being multilingual has helped me tremendously to assist students who native language is not English. Being able to speak three languages helps me interact with my students more effectively. Coming from a country from South-East Asia gives me the multicultural background that teaches me to be tolerant, respectful, and patient to all individuals. I believe that patience is the single most important criterion that an educator should possess.
