I am currently an undergraduate student attending Houston Community College, soon to transfer to transferred to University of Houston. I recently relocated from Hartford, Connecticut, where I resided for two years on campus of Trinity College. I was awarded a full academic scholarship to the institution by the Posse Foundation. I am on a pre-medical track, majoring in Psychology and World Cultures & Literatures, with a minor in Middle Eastern Studies. I intend on attending medical school after attaining my undergraduate degree.

My passion for tutoring is fueled by experiences of my own. At many points of my academic journey, I would have appreciated a supporting hand. The task of a tutor is not just to be that pillar, but a guiding hand that leads the student in achieving through his/her own volition. Most of a student's time is spent in a classroom at school, where I believe in very rare cases does learning take place. Unfortunately, school has become an institution that only drives a competition of numbers, recognition, and memorization. There is no learning that occurs, and the students over these years fail to simply learn. My objective as a tutor has always been to restore the drive in my students, and I cannot say that it hasn't correlated with better performance and knowledge. I aim to incorporate visual material, hands-on activities, and interactive learning for my students. I have mostly worked with private clients in New York City, and recently with some in Houston. For consecutive years, I have served as a teacher's assistant for various courses in high school and college, which entailed preparing materials and resources to tutor students on ongoing concepts and assignments.

Subjects that I have tutored have varied in great spectrum, however, I was able to learn that there are a few that I hold dear to myself. I gain a unique gratification from mathematics. There is something about applying numbers and using them in a medium of degrees, yet always arriving with a definite solution. The gratification of reaching an is a very minimal feeling in fundament, but greatly pleases the soul. Science too is a study that never fails to astonish me. It is simply unreal how the world we live in and its components are such complex structures. From the transfer of energy, to atomic foundation, to living systems, to velocity; science is an unavoidable phenomenon.

I've recently embraced a dormant interest for many years now that I never sought to pay much attention to architecture. I'm simply fond of how something so basic and foundational can be transformed into a uniquely constructed art piece. I'm also an avid supporter of martial arts for its values of discipline and security, that can be present in factors beyond physical practicalities. My interest in psychology is perhaps the strongest one out of all. The human mind is such an intricate and complex structure that can often be overlooked, but it does not fail to establish its influence and power over any matter. Some of my guilty pleasures consist of binge-watching Netflix documentaries and thrillers, driving with no destination, and pleasing my sweet tooth.
