I believe teaching is best accomplished by recognizing the innately fascinating aspects of a given topic; as such my teaching approach involves using the most interesting examples or phenomena in biology to spark interest, before using them to demonstrate core principles. This approach guarantees interest, understanding, and retention.
I am a recent graduate of UC Berkeley, where I studied integrative biology. I have extensive research experience focusing on physiology, behavior, and bioinspired design. I have experience teaching student run biology classes in college, private tutoring experience, and have completed an education internship at Birch Aquarium. I am passionate about education and biology, and look forward to helping foster this passion in any potential students.
