I received my Bachelor's of Science in Biology from Mercy College in 2016. Since graduating I have been pursuing research interests in the genomic analysis of mold; I have continued my work in an Anatomy Laboratory teaching Human Anatomy from dissected specimens; and have been tutoring several subjects in the sciences including biology, chemistry, and anatomy, while also tutoring Spanish. My hobbies outside of work and academia include reading novels, writing, jiu-jitsu, and running.
I believe knowledge to be one of the most durable and valuable resources we can have as human beings and because of this deep conviction, I pursue the education of each individual with passion. I realize that every time I help a student understand something about their world, their perspective of the universe they live in is never the same; this is a magical thing to me. My approach to teaching is not static nor formulated, I very much rely on my intuition and spend most of my introductory meetings with a student getting to know they're personal learning style. Once I get a good idea of how someone learns, I adapt my teaching style accordingly.
