I am a recent Neuroscience and Physiology graduate from UC, San Diego. I worked as a lab assistant aiding with research on schizophrenia and bipolar disorder at the well respected, Salk institute of biological studies for 3 years. I currently act as a General Chemistry, Calculus, and Biology tutor at UCSD. I have tutored students in biology, calculus, and American history at Santa Monica community college.

I have previously worked with many children that suffer from ADHD both during my time working as a elementary school reading and math tutor. From this experience, I have learned how to adapt my tutoring style that allows them to do activities that work with their interest but are still informative. I am also a very patient tutor and have no problem repeating or reworking a lesson until my student has a complete understanding. I have also taken extensive cognitive science courses focused on children which provides me an academic understanding of ADHD and ADD.
I have taken genetic courses from UCSD, a highly ranked university in topics include Mendelian inheritance and deviations from classical Mendelian ratios, pedigree analysis, gene interactions, gene mutation, linkage and gene mapping, reverse genetics, population genetics, and quantitative genetics. I have also taken quantitative biology courses which consider genetically based problems in biology that were solved using quantitative biology approaches. These problems explored genetic influence from the molecular to the population level. I have also tutored my fellow classmates in the topic.
