As a scientist, I believe in the power of evidenced-based teaching as the most effective way to instill understanding of complex subjects in biology. I have been trained to employ such strategies in order for my students to reach their academic goals. In my style of teaching, I am extremely patient and encourage my students that mistakes and failures are what success is cultivated from.

About twelve years ago, I struggled to find success when I first began college. I did not know my path, I did not know how to take tests, and most important, I did not know how to study or learn. The largest contributing factor to these shortcomings was that I did not have any mentors or someone to guide me. I essentially had to learn everything myself, which was a slow and arduous process that included many failures. The reason why I am so passionate about teaching is that I believe most people need that guidance, that encouragement, that push, especially early on in their academic career. That was never available to me, so I have made it my mission to teach those who are in need of support.

I received my PhD in biology from UC San Diego in August of 2017. I have an extensive teaching background from my time as an undergraduate and PhD student at UC San Diego. I was a teaching assistant nine times for upperdivision biology classes, as well as guest lectured on many occasions. Furthermore, I have mentored several undergraduates and masters students at the bench side in molecular biology research.
