I firmly believe that learning should be enjoyable for students. At times, it will be challenging and boring, but the overall process ought to be somewhat exciting and satisfying. Not all educators have the ability to create an enjoyable learning environment this could be due to large class sizes, limited class time, lack of resources, or inadequate training. As a tutor, I use the unique opportunities of one-on-one and small group sessions to form personal connections with students, in an effort to discover what sort of experience they need to enjoy learning the material. I think that students need to be comfortable in their learning environment so they can make mistakes and ask for help, when necessary. I tutor primarily biology and chemistry at the high school and undergraduate levels, as well as admissions exams, such as the ACT, the GRE, and the MCAT. My true passion is at the interface of biology and chemistry in the areas of biochemistry and molecular biology. I find it fascinating to learn about how fundamental concepts of chemistry allow biological organisms to function effectively. During my undergraduate career, I worked as a teaching assistant in a lower-level animal anatomy and physiology course and in an upper-level biochemistry course. Furthermore, I have mentored underclassmen by helping them through courses that I took in previous years. I have earned a B.S. in Molecular Biology from Messiah College and I am working towards a Ph.D. in Biochemistry at Drexel University. When I am not lost in the world of academia, I enjoy spending time in nature, reading science-fiction books, and cooking plant-based foods.
