I graduated Cum Laude from the University of San Diego with a B.A. in Chemistry and a minor in French. As a graduate student at UCLA, I worked as a teaching assistant in the Department of Chemistry where I received consistently good evaluations from my students. I lead discussion sections and held office hours for undergraduate general chemistry courses, and I gained experience presenting concepts in both group and one-on-one environments. I am extremely patient and understanding, and I have experience working with elementary through college level students. I love teaching and care deeply about the future success of my students. I strive to teach not only so that students master the material, but also so that they gain an appreciation for knowledge and learning for its own sake. I strive to help students see the value in their education while making learning as fun and rewarding as possible!
