Summary: Science and math have long been my passion, and I am confident I can help you get where you need to be!
My credentials: I graduated in the top 10% of class from UIC's College of Pharmacy - a programmed ranked #6 in the nation. During pharmacy school, I served as a teaching assistant in two courses and trained student pharmacists on the job. Before pharmacy school, I earned my Bachelors of Science from Marquette University on a full-ride scholarship where I majored in biochemistry and molecular biology with minors in mathematics, physics, and business. While at Marquette, I served as a teaching assistant for three courses. Before undergrad, I graduated in the top 15% of my high school class, earning strong grades despite being a three-sport student athlete, and worked as a golf caddy every summer.
My teaching philosophy: My goal is to never make a student feel stupid, as I know it is not easy to learn when you feel self-conscious and ill prepared. I like to meet students where they are at, find out where their confusion is coming from, and help them develop solutions that work for them. I won't belittle you, I won't rush you, and I won't brush past something until we see that light bulb go off.
My personal background: I'm 27. I grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago and I have been a fan of Chicago sports teams for as long as I can remember (except the Cubs, sorry). I like to golf, I love to learn new things, and I spend most of my free time with my family. Lately, I am learning to cook and getting back in to reading for fun and expand my horizons.
