A famous author, John Carrick, once said "Knowledge is the greatest power and it is something no one can see. It cannot be stolen or broken, No one can take it from you." This quote was something that has stuck with me and is a constant reminder and is why I have a strong passion for education and getting the most out of it. This passion I have is what often drives me down the path of teaching. Although I am not a teacher, I have always been heavily involved in volunteer tutoring and mentoring.
I am currently a student in a Doctor of Pharmacy program and I have a degree in Biochemistry with minors in Biology and Spanish. When it comes to teacher my background includes volunteer tutoring for the past 8 years for ages 6-12 and being an after school program teacher aide where I usually pulled students out or was available for after school tutoring. As I moved through my leveled of education I realized that my tutoring demographic was expanding. Because of this, I have gained communication skills on varying levels for different groups of people. Whether it was 1st grade or 1st year of college I have learned to mold my teaching styles to what best works for the student so they leave feeling confident and are able to teach it back to me.
My tutoring background primarily includes elementary school, all subjects, but mainly math and science. I do have some experience in Biology, Genetics, and intro level Spanish. I love Nutrition and often get the nickname of "Health Guru" amongst my friends, so teaching Nutrition is something I would also be interested in. Although I have not taught Health/Nutrition in a school setting, as a pharmacy student, I often volunteer at Health Fairs. I am usually put in charge of the nutrition education area which allows me to educate the public about what is in their food, how to be aware of that and how to read labels.
Outside of studying, some of my hobbies include: traveling, hiking, rock climbing, and really anything outdoors. I am always trying to learn something, whether it is a new language or a new instrument. I love meeting new people and interacting with others. In addition to getting to know people, I love studying personality types and have a strong interest in psychology. I like to study personality types because I believe for the most effective communication you have to know who you're talking to and what their method of learning or comprehension is.
