I am currently pursuing my Bachelor's degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) and Psychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am involved in neuroscience research at my university in the Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology, studying the molecular physiology of epilepsy, autism-spectrum disorders, and Alzheimer's Disease. While I tutor a wide range of subjects, I am most passionate about Biology, Chemistry, and Psychology. I am also skilled in preparing students for college entrance exams (ACT and SAT) and Advanced Placement (AP) exams.

I'd like to say that I have never struggled in school, but that is simply not the case. I know very well the struggle and frustration with receiving bad marks no matter how much effort I put in. I felt myself the anxiety surrounding standardized testing, especially before and during the ACT, SAT, and 10 AP exams I took as a high school student. It was through these less-than-pleasant experiences, though, that I sought out mentors and adopted strategies over the years that have not only led me to success on standardized tests, but sustainable academic success in college. My teaching philosophy centers much upon identifying learning styles, accountability, resilience, and growth, as I have found these themes to be paramount to academic success. As a teacher/mentor I hope to encourage and empower my students with personalized strategies that will last, rather than try to direct them to arbitrary scores.

My teaching journey began when I was 16 years old, through my first job as a swim instructor. I taught swimming for three years, teaching students ranging from 6 months to 74 years old. While this was not an academic teaching experience, this experience taught me the importance of personalized learning, how to teach and foster resilience, how to make my students comfortable, and many other teaching skills. As a volunteer, I tutored mathematics (Algebra I to Pre-Calculus) through Mu Alpha Theta (math honors society), as well as reading and mathematics to elementary students in a bilingual school. I also served as a private tutor for a family for three years, teaching children K-6 science, mathematics, language arts, Spanish, and piano. I am now an incoming Merit Program Teaching Assistant for the Department of Chemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Outside of academia, I am heavily involved in community service organizations aiming at bringing healthcare (particularly mental health services) to underserved communities. This cause is one of my greatest passions.
