I graduated from University of California, Riverside (UCR) in 2014. I majored in Environmental Science with a focus on Natural Sciences. I chose this major because it is not only important but also it requires knowledge of the major sciences like chemistry, physics, and biology. Of course it also requires math, which is where I excel. I particularly like these subjects because they are like puzzles; the pieces are all there, just jumbled, no pieces can be removed or added.
In my spare time, I enjoy puzzles and riddles, which I tend to train my brain everyday (through games or online readings). I also like sports and weightlifting, which trains my discipline.
I was the Vice President of an Academic and Career based Fraternity. I was also a New member educator, and that essentially gave me some training in how to plan events and carry them out. I was also a Lab assistant in the Geology Department of UCR in 2012, and a Student Technician at the USDA Salinity Lab in 2014, so I have some hands on experience in Laboratory if interested.
I hope to work with you soon.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Tell me, and I'll forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I'll understand.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Ask if there are any questions or topics they would like to be helped on first. Then, I would go over their homework and see where they have troubles and help them. Then, I'd help with time organization by planning out test dates and study schedules.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
By making the learning experience fun, and rewarding success on the way.
