EducationBS Biology from Cal Poly Pomona; MS in General Biology from Mississippi State University
ExperienceI help students improve their grades and study skills through guided reinforcement of lessons taught in the classroom. Supplemental instruction is provided via lectures, quizzes, tests, and worksheets in either a group or one-on-one setting. I specialize in elementary and high school general curricula and test prep (SSAT, ACT, SAT, and GRE). However, my true forte and specialty is in Biology and I have tutored all areas of this subject up to college and post-grad levels. I also provide college counseling and application/essay assistance to graduating high school seniors.
My students have come from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds and have ranged in age from seven to 50+ years old. Subjects taught in addition to the ones previously mentioned Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Math Analysis, English Literature & Composition, American History, and Spanish I - III.
I have 11 years' worth of tutoring experience and am also a Biology, Chemistry, and ACT Test Prep instructor at a learning center here in Diamond Bar, California. In addition, I performed research on the nematode C. elegans for 2 years and am extremely well-versed in genetics and molecular biology.
In terms of background, I graduated Summa cum Laude and valedictorian (cumulative GPA of 4.00 for all 4 years of undergrad) from Cal Poly Pomona. I also have my Master's degree in General Biology from Mississippi State University (4.0 GPA). I can tutor students both in-person and online, so convenience is something I can definitely offer to new clients.
HobbiesI love reading! Kurt Vonnegut is my favorite author. I also love listening to music and hanging out with my husband and spending time with our 3-year-old daughter.
