EducationBachelor of Science in Biochemistry with emphasis on medical science at University of California, Riverside in 2012
Master of Science in Biochemistry at University of California. Riverside in 2013/
ExperienceI want to be a tutor because I want to be more involved in the community. As a recent graduate a lot of my focus was on my academics, CCE internship, and research. I want to be able to get in touch with the kids and perhaps, share what I've learned as an undergraduate, a graduate student, and a research technician. I want to be able to show students that science can be fun and not as difficult as people may think. Therefore, I want to share my study skills and utilize my solid background in biochemistry to motivate kids to become avid students.

HobbiesI love volleyball and the old school sport, tetherball ever since elementary school. It is still a sport I enjoy today, especially playing volleyball on the beach. Whenever I do get a chance I love to read books, especially ones that teach us life lessons such as To Kill A Mockingbird, The Time Keeper, and Twenty Wishes.
