Recent Biology Graduate with experience tutoring ages 8-20 in science and math

Methodology

I base each topic on the student. Everyone approaches material differently, and I want to cater each topic to the individual students. Whether you are a sixth grader struggling with math, or a senior in high school trying to understand physics, I will help you find the best way for you to learn based on my intensive pedagogy course and research at UCLA.

Background

I am a future medical student and former student at UCLA. I have been a volunteer teaching assistant with UCLA's Introductory Molecular Biology class, taught fitness and nutrition to large classes, and have privately tutored for classes and standardized exams.
