I specialize in math, physics, and medicine, that's educational background, that's my teaching experience.
Education transformed my humble upbringing and opened up the myriad of opportunities I have today. Tutoring and mentoring excites me because I feel that I am making a difference through empowering students the same way I became empowered. Not just relaying knowledge, but also understanding, self-reliance, confident problem-solving, and hopefully an appreciation for curiosity and learning.
My background is in biomedical engineering at UT-Austin. I loved the math and physics side of things especially when they blend into human health. I pursued medical school afterward at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM). While at BCM, I did a dual-degree MD/MBA and graduated in 2018, on track to ophthalmology training as my specialty. What this means for me as a tutor is that I developed skills on learning how to learn, and have done well on the many standardized exams and classes along the way and am able to relay those skills.
Why am I a tutor? Ever since college, I've always loved to teach, mentor, and tutor. In fact, I tutored individuals and groups at the university (Sanger Learning Center) for 4 years. I eventually became the senior lead tutor and taught younger tutors on effective techniques and helped train them.
My other influential experiences in the realm of tutoring and mentorship are in my volunteering and tennis activities. I coached medium to advanced players at the K-12 level, coaching groups at tennis camp every year for 3 years. I volunteered as mentor/academic coach/tutor for elementary school kids in an after school program, and also for junior high kids who are sick and have to miss significant amount of schooling.
Right now is the perfect time for me to run forward with my tutoring passion. I have 12 weeks of vacation before residency begins and would love to help out where I can.
Otherwise, I love to spend my time being active (camping/hiking/playing sports) and nerding out to things related to technological innovation.
If you have questions or want to chat about career path, similar hobbies and interests (TENNIS!), or academic tutoring, just message me, I'd love to help out where I can.
