I am currently a third year medical student at the University of Health Texas Science Center Long School of Medicine in San Antonio, TX. I have a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Biology from Texas AM International University. I teach primarily biochemistry, cell biology, general biology, and anatomy/physiology from the AP high school level to undergraduate and even graduate level. Aside from the sciences, I have taught classical piano for 10 years from the elementary level to undergraduate level to adults. I believe that every student I work with is also a unique opportunity for me to continue learning as well, because the best teachers always strive to be students themselves! I am the type of teacher that likes to challenge the student and give them the tools and skills to be able to have lifelong self study motivation and success. I also always focus on understanding over memorizaring material because this is critical to long term retention and learning, which is so important. However, I am always patient, enthusiastic, light-hearted, and well prepared for every individual student's needs and goals! Looking forward to sharing my passion for the sciences and/or music with you, and I am always so happy to help shape the lives of others in a positive way through teaching and understanding.

I love to play classical piano (have played for 15 years) and try new foods, teas, and coffee! I dabble in origami and composition, and have a love for animals! I myself have a lovely chocolate labrador and mischievous little black cat named Lady and Darth (you can probably guess who's who from the names alone!).
