As a graduate of UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) and Orange Coast College, I understand what it means to have various academic backgrounds. Being taught in various ways by various people, every student understands material differently and I find it incredibly important to keep that in mind while teaching. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics with a concentration in Virology Research and my Associates in Biological Sciences from each school respectively, and thus I am confident in my abilities to tutor the subjects of Basic Science, General Biology, High-school Biology, and AP Biology. My knowledge of biology and its derivatives have been put to use outside of academia and into the medical field such as hospital volunteering (UCI) and shadowing, as well as other areas such as biochemical laboratory settings. Alongside my discovery and publication of a novel live virus, I also have taught the concepts of biology to an array of students, including those with upcoming exams, diagnosed with A.D.D., simply curious, and even people who aren't students. The reason for the large variety of my learning audience is because I believe that everyone learns differently and should therefore be taught differently if necessary, whether that be visually, audibly, etc. Outside of the science field, I spend my time exercising, training others (with their diet and exercise), playing video games, and watching a good football game.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that everyone learns differently, and thus they should be taught differently if necessary (whether that be visually, audibly, etc.) The problem with today's teachers is that they all teach the same way, which only works for some people. As a personal tutor, I feel responsible for teaching concepts to students in the way they learn best.
