More About Me
|I’ve struggled with academics a lot throughout the years, and I understand how frustrating it can be when a topic that comes easy to others may not be so easy for me. That’s what makes tutoring so rewarding to me; I love seeing someone push through a challenging subject and knowing just how big a success it is.
In my spare time, I’ve been catching up on the Marvel movies (Captain America: The First Avenger is the best by far) and sleep.

Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience
I am currently an ambassador for the Pharmaceutical Sciences department, where I help set up and run various events within the department. I'm also an editor for Morning Sign Out at UCI, a student-run biomedical blog. In high school, I was on the board of Music Makes Miracles, an organization that raised funds for several non-profit charities. During my junior year, I was captain of my school's junior varsity tennis team, which was Division 1 in the Pacific League.
