I graduated from Brandeis University with a double major in Biology and Economics, and am currently applying to medical schools. My teaching experience includes being a teaching assistant for General Chemistry Lab for a year and a half while at Brandeis as well as a SAT Instructor for a major test prep company for two years after graduating. Right now, I work as a Back Office Assistant at an an optometry practice where I am still finding opportunities to teach and train fellow colleagues and interns. What I enjoy the most from these experiences is being able to connect to others and helping them to unlock their potential. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, playing tennis, piano, and violin, reading novels, practicing yoga, and jamming out to Korean pop songs.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is being a genuine and caring mentor. You want to be able to cater to each student's needs and be cognizant of pace so that you do not leave them behind. You want students to interact with you as much as possible and engage them in not only learning the material but also understanding it. Sharing personal experiences and relating material to real world situations makes learning more worthwhile. Always checking in (even with a simple, "How are you?") and prompting them with questions to encourage participation will help students find success.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I would help a student stay motivated by being encouraging and reminding them of their goal. Sometimes when the going gets tough and you are met with setbacks, it is hard to continue. But being encouraging and giving constructive feedback can help students continue overcoming obstacles. Taking detours to return on track is okay.
