More About Me
I have a strong passion for science and math, and have always loved these subjects since I was little. I have so much fun sharing and teaching my family and younger cousins cool science facts and math tricks. I started tutoring after graduating because I would occasionally help my cousin in middle school with her math homework, and I really enjoyed it. Through my tutoring, I have learned a lot about the different ways that students learn, and it is very rewarding when they have an aha moment from a topic requiring creative teaching. For my long-term goal, I want to be a professor or an educator in science, because I love to teach and am fascinated with the laws of nature.
Science has always been my number one interest. With my free time I read books to learn more about science topics that catch my curiosity. My friend and I often hike up to a pond and try to catch bullfrogs and enjoy the wildlife and scenic landscapes. Besides science and nature, I love to focus on my health, and draw detailed art pieces. Currently I am a vegetarian because I believe it is good for me and the planet. I also exercise regularly to be the best athlete that I can be. I love to draw detailed and realistic art. I started drawing animals as a kid and now I draw people.
