I graduated UC Santa Barbara in 2014 with a Bachelors of Science in Biology. After graduation I started working as a medical scribe at a pediatrics office and currently I am applying to medical school. With my background in the sciences I look forward to tutoring students in a broad range of sciences as well as math. While at UCSB, I volunteered in a first grade classroom and assisted students one-on-one. I also volunteered with SciTrek, a program that allowed students to create their own science experiment. Throughout my schooling I have enjoyed working with peers in group setting and unofficially tutoring my younger sibling and cousins. I recognize the importance of individualized learning and will bring that into each tutoring session. As a tutor, I will build upon students foundation of knowledge to build from the ground up and allow full understanding of more complex topics. I have had many teachers contributed to myself falling in love with learning, with these experiences I hope to give pieces of that back to the next generation of scholars. Away from academics I love traveling, I have been to nine countries and this past summer explored the Pacific Northwest on a road trip and my first trip to Yosemite in October. I also enjoy remaining active and being outdoors through running, hiking, skiing and snowboarding.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?
In order to be an independent learner, students need to be confident in their abilities. It is said that if you are able to teach information, you have fully mastered the material. I will make sure those I tutor are able to share their knowledge with their classmates, therefore becoming an independent learner.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I will set achievable goals to keep the student motivated and allow them to track their progress.
