I love this job because it helps me connect with students and share what I know with them, which I enjoy very much and also makes me solidify what I already know. I am a useful science tutor, since I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor???s in Biomedical Sciences. I am currently working of obtaining my next achievement in life which is getting through Medical School. My favorite subjects are Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. I would like to reinforce what my students know and add to it, as if we were building a stair step by step to the to our desired goal.
I enjoy reading, solve puzzles, watching tv, watching doctor's shows, etc.
