- BSc in Biochemistry from UCLA completed June 2014 with honors.
- 3.75 graduating GPA
ExperienceAs a tutor i plan to help facilitate a better understanding for the various disciplines of science. I will do my best to utilize my understanding and experience i have gained in the past 4 years in a simple and comprehensive manner that will help you overcome some of the difficulties that are associated with chemistry, physics and biology. My passion for science will help you to not only understand but gain a deep appreciation that will hopefully give you an easier time.
A little bit about background and qualifications. :
-Back in High school i took 7 APs, I passed all of them and scored 5s in AP chemistry, AP physics B, and AP biology.
-I have completed all of the coursework required for a biochemistry major at UCLA including General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry (both quantum and thermo), LIfe Science, Physics (for scientists and engineers), Calculus, and Differential Equations.
-I have tutored several community college students and university students in organic chem and general chem.
-I was an assistant TA for a Life Science lab class where i aided students in developing an understanding of fundamental biological concepts and performing typical lab techniques.
- I have completed 2 years of research at the Hoelz lab at Caltech. The Research involved the biochemistry and structural biology of the Nuclear Pore Complexes (NPC), and how they relate to some of diseases associated with the NPC. I have also worked in another Molecular biology lab at UCLA which focused on actin polymerization in neuronal development.
-I have volunteered in UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical center and Santa Monica Orthopedic Hospital, working in various departments including the Critical Care Unit (CCU) and Emergency Room (ER).
Hobbies- I am a blackbelt in Shaolin Kempo
