Clinical researcher with a BS in premedical biology and MS in Pharmaceutics

Methodology

My approach to education is to understand the student's foundation and challenges as well as what motivates and interests them and then tailor lessons to be engaging while addressing their needs. I enjoy explaining complex knowledge in unique ways to overcome roadblocks in a student's understanding of the material.

Background

I have been working in clinical research for over 10 years. I have an advanced degree in pharmaceutics with a deep education in biology, chemistry and math. I have worked in educational settings teaching kids about nature and biology as well as some previous tutoring experience in specific coursework.
