I recently graduated from UCSB summa cum laude with a degree in Biological Sciences. I am passionate about learning and teaching science and enjoy teaching complex concepts in a simple way. I think it is important to learn how to study effectively and I am looking forward to helping you achieve your academic goals!
I have taken the time to learn how to study biology and other sciences effectively in college, and it has helped me achieve a 3.96 GPA. I love translating difficult concepts into layman terms. Furthermore, I understand the importance of understanding the patterns and basic concepts that underlie these sciences and will be focused on teaching understanding of the framework and then filling in the details from there.
