Whether it was through singing, researching in the lab, or studying with my peers, I valued the role as an instructor. Through my extensive repertoire in solo performances through choir, I often led sectionals and tutored students in music theory and singing technique. My ability to aid in an end result of a successful performance was more rewarding than any singing reward or applause I had received. Therefore, I channeled the role as a leader and teacher through academic settings in the laboratory and classroom. I peer-tutored in the classroom and taught undergraduate students how to comprehend scientific literature and various experimental designs. I was thrilled that I was able to guide, motivate, and impact my peers and students achieve a certain goal. Furthermore, I firsthand experienced the difficulty of the MCAT exam and struggled through preparation. But I was able to figure out an effective study tactic that eventually led to my successful performance in the test. All in all, engraining the role of a teacher and knowing the struggles and difficulty of the MCAT exam, I have aspired to teach students my own study tactics and to review basic science concepts.

Through my teaching experience, I was able to develop skills in efficient organization, communication, and problem solving. My ability to facilitate someone achieve a specific goal was gratifying that I continued the practice of teaching through each of my experiences in the laboratory, classroom, community service, and will continually provide guidance to my utmost abilities as a Varsity Tutor.
