I graduated at SUNY Buffalo with a PharmD in 2015 and I am licensed to practice pharmacy in the state of New York. Subjects that I am the most comfortable teaching are math (up to Algebra 2), science (Biology, Pharmacology, Pharmacokinetics, etc), and certain languages (Korean, Japanese, French) at the beginner level. While dabbling in a few "teaching" experiences (teaching assistant for a course, Paint Nite instructor) I found that I do best in a 1-on-1 setting which tutoring fits the bill. My teaching style is incredibly laid-back and my end-goal is making sure that one is comfortable with me and also with learning the material.

In my free time I like to knit, cook, draw/paint, as well as being an avid Redditor. My dream in life is to travel around the world and experience the culture (mostly the food) of different countries. I also am currently in the works to become a medical interpreter, combining the knowledge acquired from my degree with my passion for languages.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe incorporating humor (when it is applicable and appropriate) into teaching is key to engaging students while leaving an impact that lasts.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Ask a student about their interests, hobbies, learning style, and their life goals.
