Tutor Experience:

University of California, Department of Biology, San Diego, La Jolla, California Teaching Assistant

  • Instructed courses in physiology to undergraduate students
  • Spent between 14-17 hours per week attending lecture, preparing content for discussion sections and proctoring and grading exams to ensure academic integrity.
  • Collaborate with professors to create lecture slides and exam questions. 
  • Organize and facilitate learning sessions for 20-30 students twice weekly. 

Skills & Interests:

  • I enjoy staying fit through weightlifting and hiking. Pushing my boundaries boosts my sense of well-being.
  • I like figuring out ways to keep my plants thriving. Starting from a lone cactus, I now have a variety of flourishing indoor plants.
  • I recently rescued a dog from a shelter. Although initially shy, he is coming out of his shell through training and lots of love!
  • I relish time spent exploring various coffees and their various flavor profiles. I recently discovered the wonders of a burr-grinder!
Student Testimonial:
I learn a lot every session, especially with the mnemonics and tables he shares with us. The sessions help me organize my thoughts and eliminate the wrong answers when solving difficult questions. What I find beneficial is reading the questions out loud and dissecting them together as well as discussing why every option is wrong.
