Short Bio :
I have developed a true passion for tutoring/teaching throughout college after instructing students in various science subjects, including biology, chemistry, biochemistry, and metabolism. As a private biology tutor, I helped boost a student’s grade from a C- to a B+ in 6 weeks. I have also worked with many international students in their application process for college and graduate school in which I primarily served as an essay consultant, and I have helped students gain admission to various schools of their choice including UCLA and Stevens Institute of Technology. It is incredibly rewarding for me to see a student transform and achieve understanding over the time that I spend working with them, and this motivates me to give 110% during each session. My teaching style typically follows the ‘flipped classroom’ format, in which students are given a reading assignment or a set of practice problems before the session which will be reviewed and reinforced during the session. Though this is my favored technique, I can also be flexible to the needs of the student. My patience, knowledge, and experience make me a successful tutor that will be attentive to the individual needs of each student and will allow me to build a structured plan for goal achievement.
I am currently applying to medical school and hope to matriculate in August 2018. My hobbies include cooking, food blogging, volleyball, and exercise. This coming year, I will also be working at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital as a Clinical Information Manager.
