Life-long learner; Biomedical Sciences Masters Student with a Bachelors in Biology offering Life Sciences lessons to all ages.

Methodology

I like to think of myself as a peer to my students. I take a casual but efficient approach to teaching that benefits students with all learning styles. I am attentive to different students' abilities and am willing to give the necessary attention to those who need it. My teaching knowledge would extend to high school biology, from preparatory to AP/IB levels. I am also open to tutoring college students struggling with introductory level life sciences courses, or any research-based inquiries or needs. My research background includes animal behavior studies in Argentine ant colonies to biomedical research in hematopoiesis in Drosophila and its applications to human blood genes.

I prefer to approach lessons in a very conversational style with many drawings, diagrams, and examples along the way to make the knowledge more accessible to a broad array of students.

Background

I am a pre-med, biomedical sciences Masters student at Rosalind Franklin University. I attended UCLA for my Bachelors, where I majored in Biology. Through my educational history I have been involved in research from biomedical science to ecology, and have the practical skills needed to successfully provide insight into the field. I hope to use my skills to educate others who may be along a similar path.
