Last spring I received my Bachelors of Science in Cellular Molecular Biology, graduating Summa Cum Laude (GPA > 3.9) and Phi Kappa Phi (Top 10% of class).

Being dyslexic and learning to develop my own learning strategies while abstaining from disability accommodations has taught me how to make a science out of academic improvement.

I began teaching by tutoring at-risk students in chemistry at my high school. I mentored students in problem solving and aimed to excite them towards the subject matter.

I continued teaching as a teaching assistant for the upper division cell biology class by instructing students in complicated immunological laboratory techniques.

As a chess player I achieved a rating in the 98th percentile of scholastic players and taught students from elementary schools and through high school.
